Determine your strap size : widths

It’s that easy to measure the needed widths of your new watchstrap… bring out your ruler, take your time, once your measures will be taken, start from scratch to check.


Strap width : 22mm
Strap width : 22mm
The first measure to take into account is the width of the strap width at the watch. Watch out, never measure your existing strap, it has been «cooked» (shrank by curling up on itself with the heat, the water and the perspiration) and then pass below the needed quote of your watch. You have to measure the width gap of your watch (between the ears).

Here is the conversion table from millimeters into inches.

Watch out, if you use a caliper (the most precised tools so far), use the part for the internal measures (it is the one with sharp angles). In the same way, if you use a dial caliper, do not forget to reset before you start to measure.
