BARTON Bands for Odd Lug Widths

February 2019 Update:  All of our Elite Silicone straps are now available in 19mm, 21mm and 24mm lug widths!  Select your corresponding lug width before adding to cart.  For other collections, read on below!

Original Post: Having trouble fitting a new strap to your watch due to an odd sized lug - 19mm, 21mm, or 23mm? Never fear! Both our NATO Style and Quick Release Bands will work!

For our NATO Style Straps , just select the width 1mm wider than your watch lug. For example, a 22mm NATO will squeeze into a 21mm lug without any issues.

Fitting a Quick Release Strap requires a little more ingenuity. Once again, select the strap that is 1mm wider than your watch lug (i.e. 22mm strap for a 21mm lug). Then, remove the original quick release spring bars and replace them with the appropriate, odd-width spring bars.

If you're unsure how to remove and replace quick release spring bars, it only takes a few seconds and there's a video to show you how to do it here.  Odd-width quick release spring bars can be purchased here.

Seiko Diver Options!

They say "team work, makes the dream work" and with a little ingenuity, many of our straps will work perfectly with Seiko's fantastic line of diving watches. If you own a Seiko Diver that uses 2.5mm diameter "Fat Boy" spring bars, we have several options that will allow you to continue using your original spring bars with BARTON's straps.

1) NATO Style: Remove your original strap, reinsert the "fat boy" spring bars into the watch head and then feed any of our nylon or leather NATO Style straps between the spring bar and watch casing, behind watch head and up through the other spring bar. If you are unsure how to install our NATO style strap watch this.

 2) Quick Release: Remove the quick release spring bars from any of our Canvas or Leather straps and replace them with your original "fat boy" spring bars. If you are unsure how to remove the quick release spring bars watch this.
