Watchstraps sizing

ยท

Welcome to WatchCrunch!

As far as strap sizing, the key measurements are lug width of the watch and length of strap. If you have the model numbers of your watches you can usually find that searching online. Or, you can use a basic caliper. Commonly, strap widths are even. The most common are 18mm, 20mm and 22mm. They often taper. Tapered straps are expressed wide to thin in millimeters. The wide dimension is matched to the lug width of your watch, and thin to the buckle. A tapered strap dimensions are expressed like this: 20-16. This would be for a 20mm lug watch tapering to a 16mm buckle.

The length of straps are pretty standard for ready made, and usually you have a โ€˜standardโ€™ or โ€˜longโ€™ option. Your needs obviously depend upon your wrist size. But you can get a good idea of your length needs by measuring the straps you wish to replace. If they are short for your wrist, go long. Strap lengths are expressed as a long and short, in millimeters. For instance 115/70 = 115mm long, 70mm short.

Hope that helps.

You are most welcome. Since you are new at buying straps, consider buying budget straps that are ready made for your first few purchases to get a feel for what you like and do not. Also, many straps have the option of quick release spring bars. I recommend going with quick release for ease of changes.
