  • Curved Spring bars

    Kia Ora all
    I recently accursed a Seiko SNZ411 flighmaster and then proceeded to order some 21mm NATO straps online. Unfortunately the SNA411 has a 21mm lug width, and a very small gap between the spring bars and the case, therefore I am now attempting to procure a couple of 21mm curved springbars... HELP!

    So far I have only found wholesalers willing to sell me several hundred 21mm curved spring bars, and I certainly don't have any use for that many!

    Any help would be immensely appreciated

          Yeah I just get a pen or small piece of dowel I have laying around and I curve my spring bars by pressing them against it.

            100%

            Not rocket science eh

            Just depends on the distance/curve

            Yeah you are basically 100% right on this Sir

            I mean, you are right, thats what super pro's do, exactly

              Most proper watchmakers would have these, or can curve a couple, otherwise get a couple of 21or22 pins place one into a spoon, place the back of another spoon over it and press - it will curve nicely.
