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.

Is the Seiko Sumo Automatic Watch Band Compatible with the Seiko Prospex Sumo Solar Chronograph SSC757J1 and SSC807J1?

- The answer is NO.


The Seiko Sumo Chronographs SSC757 and SSC807, which are powered by Solar movement, have a similar look to the Sumo Automatic; however, their watch cases have a slightly different design that is not compatible with our fitted end link. But don't despair, as Strapcode always has something to inspire you with our wide selection of watch bands in a variety of styles and materials.
