G-Shocked!

On the hunt for a new watch? Well, you’ve come to almost the right place! As you know, our watch bands are designed to fit thousands of different timepieces within the ever-expanding watch universe. G-Shock recently released the NEW GA-2000 and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome another watch into the fam!


To keep a long story short, our relationship with G-Shock has always been what you call “love/hate.” We constantly drool over G-Shock and all their ruggedly awesome timepieces, but historically the majority of their models utilize a specific design, which requires a particular type of strap that we do not produce. Talk about frustrating!

Que the GA-2000!

Barton Watch Bands Elite Silicone Grey with G-Shock GA2000
This beast is an absolute game-changer, and we felt it was our responsibility to spread the word. Aside from its improved carbon core guard structure for unparalleled strength, it has more importantly (in our opinion), been designed to accommodate interchangeable bands! This is a huge deal because G-shock watches have never been built for quick release bands, until now...so let the party begin! Any of our 24mm quick release straps will work great with the GA-2000, and our Elite Silicone, in particular, will be a perfect option for summer. With 8 different two-toned utility colorways options available, we anticipate some amazing watch combos. Personally, we like the Khaki Elite Silicone strap with the Black Buckle

Gift Ideas for Dad

No clue what to get Dad this year? We've all been there. Luckily, we've whipped up a little gift guide to help you pick out a great gift for the old man that is both thoughtful and something he will use, even if he says he "don't need anything". 

Let's face it, he doesn't need another tie or cuff links, and he already bought himself the watch he had his eye on...but does he have other bands for that watch? Or a travel case to protect his baby? We ain't talking about you though.

Here are a few gift ideas to help you become the favorite (in case you aren't already):

1. ALLIGATOR GRAIN LEATHER WATCH BAND

Our Alligator watch bands are the perfect pick for Dad. They will class up any timepiece and drastically improve his lack of style that you have constantly reminded him about. These bands are the perfect tandem with any belt or his favorite pair of shoes, bringing a savvy sought after business look full circle.

2. ELITE SILICONE WATCH BAND

Barton Watch Bands Elite Silicone

Our Elite Silicone watch bands are a fan favorite, hands down. They are smoother than a baby's bottom and are the perfect option for any athletic activity. Whether dad is mowing the lawn at 8 am on a Saturday, setting a PR on the rowing machine or hitting the town with his friends, these straps are an excellent complement to his favorite timepieces. They also come in a range of awesome color combinations, so don't feel like you have to pick just one.

3. CANVAS WATCH BAND

Our Canvas Watch Bands are a classic wardrobe staple. Casual comfort is the game, and these bands are a great option to beat the heat this summer. As we like to describe it, they are "fashionably rugged". An ideal option for Dads next big adventure or weekend camping trip.

4. WAXED CANVAS WATCH ROLL

BARTON WATCH BANDS WAXED CANVAS WATCH ROLL

Our Waxed Canvas Watch Roll is the home that Dad's timepieces have always dreamed of. It is water-resistant with felt lined pockets on the inside and looks totally awesome. This is the perfect travel case for his most cherished timepieces, something he is sure to bring with him everywhere. Who knows, he might even tell stories about it for years to come. Fabricated with 5 pockets, this watch roll can do it all.

**Receive a FREE Barton Watch Bands Leather Coaster with every Watch Roll purchase while supplies last**

5. BARTON MESH BACK TRUCKER HAT

Tight Squeeze?

Here at the Barton HQ we have a few watches in particular that have a difficult time accommodating our NATO style straps (nylon & leather). If you have found yourself in the same frustrating position, don’t throw in the towel just yet! “But why is this happening”, you might ask. One possibility is that the position of the lug holes on your timepiece were drilled rather close to the watch head so the strap doesn’t have enough room to slide between the spring bar and watch case. This is merely a result of the watch design. Another possibility is that your watch was produced specifically to accommodate a curved strap. Our Alpina Alpiner (seen below) is a great example of the "tight squeeze" scenario. 

The solution - curved spring bars! The curve of the spring should give our NATO style strap the extra wiggle room it needs to slide between the watch head and spring bar!  We have some extras laying around our office, so be sure to reach out directly if you are having any issues, and we would be happy to help you out!

Now Available | 24mm Canvas Quick Release

Time to make some room for the big boys, ya'll! 24mm Canvas Quick Release just showed up at the HQ and they're already making themselves right at home. It has been a long time coming, and we can't wait to see our attractive rugged canvas straps on even more timepieces! Buy multiple and swap daily to compliment your wardrobe, or mix and match with any of our other 24mm straps - SiliconeLeather or NATO Style.

19mm, 21mm, 23mm & 24mm Elite Silicone Quick Release

The people have spoken, and we've heard you! Elite Silicone straps for 24mm and odd lug widths - 19mm, 21mm & 23mm - are now available! It has been a long time coming, and we can't wait to make room for more awesome timepieces.

We wish we could go back in time and convince every watchmaker to use 22mm lugs, but the flux capacitor on our DeLorean broke, so we're doing the next best thing by adding more widths to try to accommodate all of the watches out there.  Some of our favorite watches around the office have odd lugs - Omega Planet Ocean (21mm), IWC Spitfire Mark XV (19mm), Alpina Alpiner (21mm), Cartier Calibre Diver (23mm), Baume Mercier Conrad (23mm) - and we know there are hundreds more out there from Swiss Army, Tag Heuer, Omega and the like.  If you've been struggling to find that perfect silicone strap for your odd width dive watch, look no further.  

There's also more on the horizon!  24mm canvas will be added this spring and odd sized alligator and leather are on their way before the end of summer.

If you're having trouble determining the proper width for your watch, check out our Fitting Guide, or email us at info@bartonwatchbands.com with the make/model of your watch and we'll do our best to help out.
