I searched the forums, but never really found an answer. I purchased a used UN Maxi Marine, and the leather strap has seen better days. I am looking to replace it. The band has a beautiful UN butterfly clasp on it, which I want to keep.
1. I can't see how to remove the portion that goes where the buckle would normally go. What's the secret?
2. How do you size/ order a replacement leather strap? This strap is thicker and "notched" at the case and tapers thinner as it approaches the ends (in both width and thickness). Not a "normal" band at all. Are there bespoke watch strap makers who might have these available to make? Suggestions on where to look?

Thanks in Advance.

There's two ways they secure the clasp to the strap. Drilled through or hidden spring bars.

Buckles and clasp usually are a standard size. Say if a strap is 20mm at the lugs. The buckle will be 18mm. 22mm strap, 20mm buckle size.

If you forego the notch. It'll open up the amount of straps that can be used.
