  • Link to printable guide
  • Instructions for changing your strap hardware
    • The hardware (buckle and tongue) on your strap are attached using the same kind of "traditional" springbar that attaches our traditional straps to their watch cases
    • To change the hardware, please follow the same instructions as the "traditional strap video" below, but manipulating the spring bar inside your hardware, rather than the springbar nearest the watch case/lugs.
    • When attaching your new strap hardware, please make sure that the "buckle tongue" sits flush with the top side of the buckle, as seen in the image below. If you reattach the springbar while the tongue is below the buckle, you will not be able to fasten the strap.
