Which lug width do I need?
Hoe meet ik de breedte van mijn horlogeband?Very often, the width is indicated on the backside of your current watchband. If this is not the case, you can simply measure it with a ruler. The lug width is the distance between the watch lugs in millimeters.

How do I measure the length of the watch strap?
Again, the easiest way is simply to measure the length of your current strap. Another way is to measure the size of your wrist and deduct the height of your watch (from lug to lug). The buckle is not included.

Why do I reveive free pushpins with my watchband?

May my watchband get wet?
Whether or not your watch band may get wet depends on the material and the processing of the strap. If a  leather strap is waterresistant, this will be indicated on the backside of the strap. Furthermore, you find this information in the chart of each strap on our website. Watch bands that are not waterresitant can stand a few water drops while washing your hands or during light rain, but should not be worn under the shower or when swimming. If you wear your watch during (water-) sports, we advise you to choose a strap from our category 'rubber and sport' or ‘NATO/ZULU’. These straps are made from rubber, silicone or nylon and therefore perfect for use in wet circumstances or during sport activities. Please do not forget to check the water resistance of your watch, as well!

How do I clean a rubber or silicone strap?
You can clean a rubber or silicone strap the same way you clean a strap from leather or steel: with a little bit of soapy water and a soft towel. Rubber and silicne straps should not make contact with oils or salts.
