    Does anyone know where one can purchase Vintage Ribbon Watch Bands? They can be the real deal or repros i don't care but I need one for a 1920 Elgin.

    I have purchased some NOS off ebay but they werent the right size or didn't fit....

    Some fabric stores carry tmhe grosgrain ribbon that dressmakers often use. The fittings? You're pretty much on your own, there. Unless somebody knows a source. To save yourself some leg work, you might want to phone around to see who might stock it. Or you might want to see if you can find an on line source. Let us know if this helps, please.

    If you are near a Michael's store, my spouse assures me they carry it, and it might be available in a variety of widths. They might also stock fitments that might serve your purpose.
