Generally speaking, retail straps are not offered in half-millimeter sizes. The two exceptions to that are the ones that are totally cu$tom-made, and vendors who deal in fractions-of-an-inch vintage straps, like WTF member Scott Allison @ timesofplenty on eBay.

most accutron cases take 11/16" band which is approx. 17.5 mm. You can usually get away with using a 17 or 18mm
band,but sometime they just don't fit and need slight modification or replacement with a true 11/16" band.
