  1. Straps & Bracelets
    I have a Hirsch Osiris with quick-release on my Orient Bambino Small Seconds dress watch, and that's fine. But now I'm looking for a rubber, silicon, or canvas strap to put on my new Vostok Amphibia, and am reluctant to buy one of the many high quality ones I am seeing because they have...

    Hi all, I was wearing my Sinn 356 UTC on a custom buckskin leather by The StrapSmith - TheStrapSmith - Custom Leather Watch Straps by Rob Montana (I have 5 or 6 of his custom pieces as he does really great work) and I was giving a presentation. To draw attention and give emphasis I clapped my...
  3. Straps & Bracelets
    Hi folks: I replied to an old thread with the message below before realizing it may not have been in the appropriate forum (sorry Mods). Hopefully here it is and there has been some new developments in the market since then. I got a pair of very nice and thick leather straps of different...

    Hello, I tried searching the forum and elsewhere but no luck. Anyone knows the exact size of the spring bars, specifically pin diameter, is it 0.8mm? Thanks!
  5. Public Forum
    ​I know this has been discussed in previous threads, but reading them has just made me confused. Can anyone give me some straight answers to my questions? 1. What size are the stock OEM spring bars for the srp315? 2. If I don't want to struggle wedging the extra fat spring bars into other...

    Can anyone suggest where I can buy a synthetic strap for my Orange Monster? I have a Hadley Roma rubber strap but don't much care for it as it's hard to push the strap through the keepers. I guess the rubber on rubber causes too much friction. I like the black and orange thread theme but am...

    Hi all! I've tried looking but can't find what type of spring bars my Tempest Commodore use! They are thicker and the holes the spring bars sit in is larger than normal. Can anyone tell me? I'd like to get some replacements (I like having extras laying around and this watch isn't going...

    My friends - I need some help. As you can see from the photos: I've got screw bars on this Orion and I'm having a hard time unscrewing them. I don't want to go to the jeweler if I can take care of the job myself. I've tried the two screwdriver approach to no avail. I've found this tool...

    New member, first post, first G-Shock. Hello all. So as mentioned in the thread title, I have a DW-5600MS. I absolutely love it but I prefer a bracelet. I plan to buy the GW-M5600BC Combi Bracelet from Tiktox.com. A couple of questions... Is Tiktox the best place to buy it from? I live...
  10. Straps & Bracelets
    Well I've been thinking it over and the more pictures I see of watches on NATOs, the more I like the look. Furthermore the fact that my SNZG15, Orient Ray and soon to be Maratac Pilot all use 22mm bands makes the switch even more temping as I could have a vast collection of NATOs easily...

    Hi there, I just bought a new croc strap for my 3717-04. Anyone know spec of pins to buy. I want to use new pins when I change out straps to ensure a safe/secure fit A friend recommended Esslinger but there are so many options and variations on a 21mm pin I'm not sure what to get. Can anyone...

    I often use a flathead screwdriver to remove spring bars, but it takes a bit of time. I am thinking to invest in a spring bar removal tool, could anyone recommend me some?

    So I got an Isofrane recently. and I wasn't happy with the fat springbars fit in them. I had to force them with oil all over them and they only stuck out a tiny bit (granted I did get the 22mm) anyways so yeah I wore it with the fat bars for a while and didn't really like the fact that there was...

    Hey all, First time poster and proud owner of a SKX009 here. Bought it last year after feverishly trawling through watch forums (mostly this one) for advice and have been incredibly happy with it. Now I think I'm ready to take the next step... strap swapping. I'm on the OEM jubilee bracelet at...

    I've just purchased the rubber dive strap for my PO 42mm, from the official boutique on Regent Street, London. They didn't provide me with spring bars as I didn't have time to hang about waiting for them to fit the strap, so I told them I would do it myself. Question is, will the spring bars...
  18. Omega
    Hey everyone, Did plenty of searching but couldn't find a specific answer to this. I understand there are two different types of spring bars for the Speedmaster. One type is longer and meant for straps (bar-03), and one is slightly shorter and meant for bracelets (bar-04). Thing is that on...

    Just bought a Vostok Amphibian (18mm) and would like some spare spring bars. I bought Geomark brand before for my Tao, but noticed there are different diameter sizes and also different types of spring bars. What brand and type should I buy for my Amphibian, preferably available to Europe for...
  20. Orient
    I've actually combed through the forum's previous threads about this but no one really had an answer. I'm trying to replace my spring bars on my Orient Mako as they have been bent in half. I don't really want to get into the details, but I had a rather nasty fall. :-( Now I've tried to fit 1.8mm...
