When selecting a suitable replacement watch strap for your watch, you will need to know what size watch strap you require. There are two critical
measurements when choosing and fitting a replacement watch strap: The first is the width of the watch head at the lugs and the second is the
overall length of the watch strap once fitted. Here we will look at the first of these - the width of the watch strap.
Measuring the Correct Width of Your Watch Strap
This measurement is taken between the shoulders of your watch as shown below. In most cases this will be an even number of millimeters ranging between
6mm and 30mm. This measurement allows you to select the correct width of watch strap.
The dimension you need
to take from your watch
is the distance between
the shoulders of the watch
into which the spring bar fits.
