Speidel is the new exclusive manufacturer and distributor of Timex watchband replacements. The agreement covers replacement watchbands for all Timex watches, including Ironman. Fred Levinger, owner and chairman of Speidel, East Providence, R.I., noted the market for the Timex watchbands includes more than 6,000 outlets. Levinger said Speidel will seek to expand that, especially in the sports watch area. Speidel makes and supplies watch bands under its own brand name, but Levinger said it won't mix the brands. “It depends on the store and its preference,” he said.
