Again something for my green Gruen. The clasp is missing 1 folding part. See picture below:

My ladies cordette bands with folding clasp are just to small to transplant.

If you have a spare (partial) clasp I would be interested. I have searched wristband shops for a men's folding clasp but can't find one. Similar clasps on Ebay are also hard to find.

If I cant find an affordable one I might go for something like this. Any other ideas are welcome!

I don't have a spare but in looking at some of mine I ran into a variation of one that might work as well?

Pictured is my band that expands at the clasp end while yours expands at the buckle end.

Buckle size is 28.0 x 11.6 mm.

I'll keep an eye out for anything similar that I run across.

Thanks for your example. First time I see one that is expanding in the middle. I don't think I understand how yours works. :S

Which brand is the clasp?

This one is a Pontiac. Not sure if that name refers to the city Pontiac Michigan because the word "steel" in written under it. Here is how it opens and expands.

Here is another one that just arrived, a Hadley, over-under type clasp. The buckle on this one is larger, about 35 x 28 mm

Aha. So the closing part on the inside sits under the chain part of the band when expanded. I get it.

I bought a Hadley band that might fit. Smile Still keeping my eyes open for other bands with clasps around 1cm width.
