Short instruction How to measure the correct width of a watch strap
Move your mouse to read
Take, preferably, a caliper ruler or otherwise a standard ruler. Our advice is to use a ruler with a clear ‘mm’ denotation for the highest precision during the measuring.
Measure the length between the two ‘lungs’ of the watch. This area is pointed with red arrows in the image above. Always check if you are measuring the width starting from the right 0-point on your ruler. If you don’t start from the 0-point you will probably measure a wrong width!
Write down the first width you just measured. Check your first measured width by measuring a second time to know for sure you have the correct width. If you have the correct width, then you can use it for our online offer tool or send it directly to us in an e-mail. Please provide the correct width always in 'mm'.

Unbelievably found the original strap for my watch on this website. I honestly thought it was going to take months. My watch is one of those that, because of the shape, will not take any generic band. It has to be the manufacturers one. Ordered away only to be told that it was out of stock. That wasn't clear when I ordered. However I was notified very quickly and given a timeframe of when stock was expected. It was only a matter of days that I was again notified by email to say that my band was on its way. Bloody brilliant.
Turned up in the mail in good time. As I said it had to come to me in Australia. Product was in perfect condition, well wrapped. Package contained all the receipts etc you would need.
I will definitely search here first when I need a new watch band for other watches. Overall a very good experience.

Thank's for sharing your positive experience with our website. Always pleased to be able to make the impossible possible for our customers.
The special strap was not locally available but this company offered a convenient and well organised way to obtain the item. Delivery was a little slow but had been further delayed by the Christmas holiday.
