Determining your watch strap size


Determining Your Strap Size
We handcraft our straps to fit watches with lug widths from 16mm to 28mm. Our straps are bespoke and made to fit you with precision. Determining the correct size for your wrist and watch can be done in a flash. Here’s how to do it...
Step 1: Determine your lug width via one of the following ways
  • Measure the distance between the inside of the lugs of the watch face in millimeters using a metric ruler or a digital caliper.
  • Do a quick google search for the lug width of your specific watch model.
  • Look on the back side of your current watch strap for a size imprint shown in millimeters.
Step 2: Determine your wrist size (strap length) via one of the following ways
  • Measure your wrist with a soft tape measure by wrapping it around your wrist exactly around the area you wear your watch.
  • Measure your wrist with a piece of thread by wrapping it around your wrist exactly around your the area you wear your watch. Lay the thread out and measure the distance from one end to your mark on the thread. Lastly, refer to the length size chart on any strap page and choose the one that matches your wrist measurement.
  • If you have an existing leather strap that fits your watch and wrist well, measure the long side and short side length-wise separately in millimeters with a ruler to determine the length.  Only measure the leather parts of the strap from one end of the strap to the end. Do not include the buckle when measuring the short strap. Match this size to our chart in the drop down box. If that size doesn’t exist in our chart, email us first and we’ll help you out.
If you measured your wrist and it turns out, for example, that your wrist is exactly 7" which falls at the end of the 6.6" - 7" size range, then choose the strap size that your wrist measurement matches in our size chart on any strap page, which in this case would be 125/75. There's no need to go up a size and there aren't any in between sizes. 
If you have any doubt about which length is right for you, please contact us before purchasing. We'll be more than happy to assist you.
Step 3: Switch up your new strap 
This is the fun part. Swapping out your watch strap is super easy using a spring bar tool. It takes seconds to do once you've tried it a few times. This will allow you to swap straps at a spur of the moment and match them to your wardrobe and favorite accessories.

What do the tapered sizes mean?

Tapered straps start out wider at the lugs (the end that attaches to your watch) and narrow (taper) toward the direction of the tail and the buckle. So for example, if your Rolex Sumbariner has a 20mm lug width and you want a tapered strap, then you would choose a 20/18 strap. This means the lugs width is 20mm and the buckle and tail width are 18mm. Keep in mind that the higher number is the lug width and the smaller number is the buckle and tail width.
