Lotus Type 1 Watch Band

Postby Elanlover » Wed 17.03.2010, 14:50

For lack of a better place to post this (and it is, afterall, a Lotus part) the watch band for the above mentioned watch which some of you have, including myself, have can be ordered should yours break. The Lotus web store does not sell them but they did provide a contact for the original manufacturer and they do have "some" left (didn't specify how many). I was referred to the following person who was very helpful.

United Kingdom

Tel: +44 116 257 3567
+44 116 257 3569

The bands are pretty cheap (12GBP) so I ordered two. They don't take orders over the web so you'll have to call them directly.

I fitted a new strap. Fitment was OK, Durability of the little rubber band around the wristband sucks however. Please save the original one and put it on the new band for best durable result.

Lotusclub Holland has some left in stock i think:

You can contact them directly (use my link) and yes, they speak English (probably a whole lot better than me :lol: )
