Details

This Spring Bar tool is an ideal and cost effective means of changing leather, rubber and nylon watchstraps.

Supplied with two threaded metal tips, one forked for for compressing spring bars in 'blind hole' type case lugs and the other for open hole designs, ie. those with external access to the spring bar.

This is a good size tool which handles well, unlike more compact designs which can actually make the task of changing your watchstrap a more fiddly affair than it should be.

All metal body with mm and inch scales for convenient measurement. Flat sided hexagonal main body - so it stays where you put it down and will not roll around your work surface.

*Please Note If access to the spring bar is limited (as is typically the case with steel bracelets) it is recommended that you consider a tool with a fine fork tip.

Width

In order to establish the correct size/fitting for your watch, simply measure the distance (in millimeters) between the case lugs as seen in the illustration above. The determined width will be the size of watch strap you should order.

*In the event that you find the width to be an uneven size, ie. 17mm, 19mm, 21mm etc. and only in the case that you wish to purchase a leather or rubber watch strap - TSS recommends that you order the next size larger. The small degree of compression required to fit a 20mm strap to a 19mm lug width is well within the capability of supple hides. (while opinions will vary on this TSS has not yet had a single return arising from compatibility/fit issues when supplying the next size up).

**RE. Spring bars - if you are buying an oversize strap (as described above) it should be noted that the spring bars TSS supply with your strap will be approx. 1mm longer than the lug width of your watch. In this case TSS recommends that (unless damaged) you use the original spring bars supplied with your watch. TSS will be happy to supply spring bars in 17mm/19mm/21mm sizes if you request this via email immediately after placing your order.


Length

Watchstrap lengths vary depending on who made it. Rather unhelpfully different watchstrap manufacturers around the world have different ideas of what constitutes a 'regular' or 'standard' length. For example, 'regular' length straps from European manufacturers can vary by up to 18mm in length and as such you should pay particular attention to the dimensions quoted with each item description.

TSS are unable to provide 'suitable for' wrist sizes or 'wearable length' due to there being several variables that make accurately determining wearable length somewhat problematic. The size of your watch, your watches lug to lug distance and to a lesser degree case thickness all need to be taken into account when determining the correct length needed.
