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'.

I get that I could probably have paid for quicker postage however since when is 3-12 days standard postage within the uk? The product could be absolutely perfect however I still won't know for another week, great set up with the time to send an email for people to review yourselves.
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.
I was kept informed throughout the dispatch and delivery process and the watch strap arrived before I expected it. The strap itself is as expected - a genuine Fossil strap. It's just a shame that the strap that exactly matches my watch is no longer available - but that's the same everywhere I looked.
today they informed me that strap will be ship to my address am very pleased because it was very difficult to find watch strap for my watch but they found.
