How to measure the width of watch strap
Finding the correct watch strap is simple. All you will need is something to measure the distance between the lugs of the watch head; a simple ruler is excellent for this.
In most cases, you do not need to remove the exsiting strap as you should have enough visability to measure.
- Place the watch on a flat surface, ideally on something soft that won’t scratch the back of the watch.
- Align the 0 part of the ruler with the inside of the left lug and measure the internal distance of the right lug.
- Record this measurement; if your ruler is in centimetres, convert it to millimetres.
1 centimeter = 10 millimeter.
1 cm = 10 mm.
1.5 centimeter = 15 millimeter.
1.5 cm = 15 mm.
2 centimeter = 20 millimeter.
2 cm = 20 mm.
