Looks like the new Diver 300m America’s Cup chronometer will have Omega’s new ‘quick change ’ system. Between the lugs is 21mm. Anyone hear whether this feature will ripple thru to the 20mm bracelets?

And this might sound silly but if you’ve had another brand with a quick release system, are they reliable?

Thank you!

They probably got tired of the complaints ADs and Boutiques were getting after customers told them to replace a strap and they scratch the back of the lugs

The new Panerai has a similar system, very easy to swap between straps...

I wish straps had a standard (like usb). It would be nice to have a QR strap system that worked on any watch with equal lug spacing. Think of how many more straps would sell. I know people who won’t change straps, even though they want to, because they’re afraid of scratching the lugs. And if you could change a strap in 15 sec with no tools...

It’s not going to happen (it would be an awesome licensing play) but it would be a game-changer.

Agreed.

Anything that makes it easier to switch from bracelet to strap back to bracelet again is a big win. My CW has a similar quick release system on the bracelet, very sturdy, never had any issues with it

What a neat feature. I wonder if it compromises the strength somewhat. Would be interesting to see the design of the inside of those end pieces and spring bars.
