Spring bars recommendations in Canada?

Does anyone know where to get quality spring bars shipped to Canada at a price that won't break the bank?

I've read that Otto Frei sells OEM Omega spring bars, but they charge $57+ to ship to Canada. I'm open to any brand, but would prefer swiss-made.

What's wrong with a regular stainless steel spring bar? Once it's installed and clicks into the holes it should hold up for the life of the watch. I've had modified many watches including higher end Swiss watches that didn't require $57 dollar Swiss made spring bars. Curious which watch you're going to install these bars into and what activities you do with your watch that justifies a pricey part. Cheers man 馃嵒馃馃徑

To be fair, with the temperature we've had in the Montreal area, it sure feels like spring is here already. And most definitely, that winter didn't come this year.

Omega OEM spring bars cost $8 from Otto. The $57 is for the shipping.

I'm asking if anyone knows where I can get the $8 ones with cheaper shipping. Yea I would never pay $57 for them.

That's the Seiko 007 that should have had the thicker and much stronger spring bars. Man that NATO strap saved that watch.

Yea I'm not sure what spring bars they used, not my picture. I just saw this post on WatchUSeek, and that's enough for me.
