Trying to identify the Casio model this belongs to S-794L stainless strap

Hi there I'm hoping some Casio geek/s
can help me out to identify which model casio this strap fits.
It's a deployment clasp with push button release and 18mm lug connections, brushed satin effect almost like a titanium colour, not bright silver. Found it in a drawer after my father passed away, I can't imagine it was from an expensive model, maybe a digital one from the 1980's. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance. In England though I'm guessing Casio sold every model in each country so it might not make any difference.

Hi LTRL, and welcome to WF by the way ! 馃榾(y)


Thank YOU for joining up, as well as for taking the time to ask a question
like this ! ..Honestly I am no expert at all, so we will have to wait and see if
someone can give you a definitive answer on things. But I did find at least
a couple watches it could belong to and one is this cool Marlin here. Or the classic digital below. But like I said, I am no expert. 馃槉

Thanks for the welcome and the info Atomic Tom 馃憤

I'll check them out on the web, it's a really good pointer, of course someone might know better.
Knowing my dad it wouldn't have been something mega expensive or rare 馃槼馃槀 It will probably go on ebay or I could get the case/watch if it's in good condition and match it up to this band if it has a scratched up strap and just hold on to it.
I have other questions about an old solar watch but I'll try and find the right forum to ask about that as it's definitely not a Casio.

My pleasure LTRL ! 馃槈

Yes, that's a really fantastic idea with looking for a watch to put this on. 馃榾
The bracelet actually looks like a nice traditional design so it just might
fit other cool Casios as well and not be limited to any one model. So
chances are very good that you will be able to find a watch to pair as
well as enjoy this bracelet with.

Keep us updated on things, and I look forard to seeing your post on
that solar watch too. THX once again, and hopefully someone else
might just add some more insight here for you also. 馃檪In any case,
I hope you keep having fun with the hobby and that this bracelet has
peaked your interest in watches as a whole. (y)

It would help to know the width of the recessed ends that the spring bars fit into, in millimeters. This would normally be the distance between the mounting lugs on the watch that the pins fit into. Almost certainly not a recent G-Shock as they take watch bands with a narrow spring pin holder, typically in the 16mm length range. The band might fit a number of steel cased Casios or some of the older plastic cased rectangular LED watches.
Hi Astronut, thanks for the extra info, pretty certain it's 17.7mm or 18mm, I feel it might have been on a metal cased watch but for some reason it's been gotten rid of 馃槻 maybe it got damaged. Searched through my dads old desk where I found the strap and nothing going. It doesn't look like it fts the two models (as standard straps) that Atomic Tom suggested as I've found some on the web and the clasp mechanisms are different,

The last link before the one that houses the pins looks like like it's just under 21mm so would the link pins be 21mm?

Probably 18mm or just under fully compressed length for the spring pins. Look at the picture of the A168WA-1 Classic Digital Watch above and you can see how the band steps out from the spring pins holders to blend better with the watch body. The band should fit almost any Casio metal cased, or metal and plastic combined cased, watch with 18mm width between the band mounting lugs.
Looking at the A168WA-1 Classic Digital watch on Amazon and reading the specifications it takes a 18mm band and that is normally specified as spring bars length for metal band watches, though no guarantee. The one shown on Amazon has a different band but that is as manufactrers say "subject to change without notice. The one on Amazon has a very easily length adjustable band but your band would almost certainly fit.

Thanks Astronut
Aha, 'the subject to change without notice' get out clause might be why when I look at these vintage watches on ebay for instance they have the strap without this flip out mechanism. So it will fit a whole range of Casio with 18mm link pins, I was just intrigued as to what model it was initially fitted to as standard, I may never find out.

Have you tried Casio tech support?
They sent me a really quick response saying that they couldn't identify the model the strap was originally fitted to, I'm not really surprised, they're more about modern Casio's technical issues rather than solving queries about models from 30 years plus ago.
