    I’ve seen this 1980s ( I believe) Seamaster Quartz for sale

    I’m not overly keen on a full gold bracelet but I know some of the models have integrated bracelets and are hard to swap

    SO a very novice question can this bracelet be swapped for a leather strap I’m guessing it would be an 18mm

    Many thanks

    Unless you can get the watch for a very affordable price, it's really not worth buying. Vintage quartz Seamasters are about the least collectible of vintage Omegas.

    On to the question of a strap, that is clearly an integrated bracelet and cannot fit a standard leather strap without some modification to the strap. Perhaps a custom strap maker could do something, but that's likely to cost as much as the watch itself.

    Hi

    Thank you for confirming about the bracelet

    I’ve got a 1977 De ville and 1998 speedmaster already but wanted a vintage seamaster to add to my collection

    This one was being sold relatively cheap but I wasn’t over keen on it so the hunt continues

    Mine says Hi. File photo of mine is not great, but it appears to be the same watch. Modifying a strap would not be feasible IMO. And any modification to the case would be out of the question. Collectibility? I enjoy mine, a lot.

    Thank you that looks good on the wrist

    Just not sure if I would get much wear out of an all gold watch which is why I would ideally like to swap the bracelet out

    Just a shame it seems hard to make any modifications to the watch
