Can the fitted end-link watch band of the Seiko Sumo Automatic be used with this Solar Sumo GMT?
- The answer is NO.
Comparing the watch bands of the Seiko SPB103J1 Sumo Automatic and the Solar-Powered Sumo GMT Divers, the new Solar Sumo GMT has "814" on the endlink, while the Sumo SPB103J1 automatic has "611". Upon testing, unfortunately, we found that it cannot be fitted onto the bands of the Sumo Automatic Watch.
