  1. Casio G-Shock
    Hello friends! :) Been awhile and wanted to post up a few pictures of the Richie strap adapters!!!! A much cheaper bargain!! Adapts down to 22mm and OOOOooOOoohh what a smooth feel it is! I got another (haha) new bezel from Ebay again! I'm very hard on this watch and it is proving to be a very...
  2. Straps & Bracelets
    I have had a Blancpain 6263 Complete Calendar in steel for some time, but I find I am only wearing it on nicer occasions, and not regularly at work, where attire is business casual. Two reasons for this: 1.) The glossy black leather strap seems too formal; it has a shine to it; I would wear it...
  3. Straps & Bracelets
    I'm looking to finally fulfill my dream hobby of making straps. As a first-timer, do any seasoned professionals have any advice on good leather/appropriate tools/thread I should stock up on to get started?? Thanks guys!
  4. Affordable watches
    Hi everyone, I have been an avid reader of this forum for a few years but never posted before. I think you may be a good help with a problem I have. I am looking for a gift for my dad, he has a massive wrist and he struggles to get a watch strap to fit without getting extra links etc. I am...
  5. Straps & Bracelets
    Hello, I have an automatic that I really love and the band recently broke. The bars (lugs? posts? I'm not sure their technical name) don't come out, they are permanent (i've tried and failed to remove them). I can't seem to find any band option other than a one piece strap. The problem is...
  6. Tissot
    I have had my PRS 516 for over five years now, and even though the watch has not been on my wrist every day, its brown leather strap had become quite worn out. I thought I would use it as long as possible, but the stitching along the deployment buckle got torn recently as I was trying to get the...
  7. Casio G-Shock
    Quite some time ago I got two Gs: a G-7710-1ER, which is absolutely great and very comfortable. I can easily wear it for days. I also got a G-7800B-1ER, which is a lot of fun, but not nearly as comfortable. The strap doesn't agree with my wrist and I really can't wear it for more than an hour...
  8. Pilots' & Military watches
    Hi Folks, I'm new to the old watch scene. I tend to go for new watches that are based on an old design. However, after a lot of months looking around for something different, I opted for a military style aviator watch. I finally found a cheap Fleiger Chrono on ebay. So, I have a question or...
