What is the wideness of the strap? I want to change it, and I don't know which strap's size should I buy.


At the point where the strap attaches to the watch - take a ruler (with metric on it) and measure the mili-meters (MM's) between the LUGS (points of attachment). That will give you the size of your band.

How to exchange leather straps for almost any watch brand


Most of the people are pretty sure that when their watch leather straps are worn out they have to replace them with new ones, made by exactly the same brand as their watch brand is. This is completely wrong. About 95% of all watch brand models can be fitted with leather straps from any watch strap producer without loosing brands identity. All you have to do is: 1. Release the strap from the watch; 2. Measure the width of the strap where the spring bar (pin) goes through and write it down or memorize it; 3. Undo the buckle/clasp; 4. Measure the width of strap in place where the buckle/clasp was fitted and write it down or memorize it; 5. Measure the length of the strap (both parts together) and write it down or memorize it. Now you have everything you need for strap replacement. Visit any shop selling leather straps or even find it on the internet. You will find thousands of different colours, patterns and leather variations. The choice is yours. Just one thing to remember: The strap you are buying must match all the measurements you took of your original strap. This is not difficult to match, as the watch straps usually are made to global standards. When you have your new strap delivered, just fit it to your watch and undo the buckle/clasp that came with it. Fit your old, original buckle/clasp on to the new strap and you are done. Most watch manufacturers impress, engrave or laser engrave their logos on buckles/clasps, not on the leather straps itself. So, when you fit the original buckle/clasp on brand new strap of different make, it becomes the original strap of the watch you own. And nobody knows that the strap is, for example, from Hong Kong, but watch is from Switzerland (except you, of course} as they look together as one nicely designed piece and the buckle/clasp works as the proof of identity. In case if your watch has some unusually shaped fixing for the strap, this shape can be easily cut in to the strap by modellers scalpel. At the very end I just want to remind to all readers: Watch straps sold under watch brand names are 2-10 times more expensive. In fact - they are not produced by watch manufacturers themselves, but in Italy, Germany, China and Hong Kong and then sent to watch manufacturers. Just because these straps were fitted to the watches and the buckles or clasps were added to them, these straps automatically becomes their brand straps and cost a lot, lot more. Hope it helps to save your hard earned money.

How do i size rubber strap to fit my wrist


It usually involves cutting with a razor blade or hobby knife. Obviously if you make a mistake there is no going back. If you are not exactly sure what you are doing, go to a watchmaker.

If you haven't already tried it, I suggest replace the entire strap.

Most watches have standard sized lugs, so it should be possible find another one that you like and also fits your watch.

Where can I buy a watch strap (double pin) for a Fossil FS3041?


mcdevito75 here, You can but a new strap for your Fissil watch almost any where, Ebay, or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area as they would have the watch right there for a perfect fit. With anything else you"ll need to know the MM size of your strap. As the strap attaches to the watch case at the pins, simply measure in MM"s this is the size of the band you need, if you can only measure in Standard Measurement use the search online for conversion Inches to MM. But with a watch shop they do everything for you.

I'm trying to find out the measurment of the band of the watch because I want to replace it, and althoug I measured it myself, I find different measurments on the internet


Measure between the lugs, (where the currently installed bracelet/strap is installed. It should be measured in millimeters as that how all straps/bracelets are measured. Standard men's widths are 20, 22, 24 and some 26mm. There are of course, variations like proprietary bracelets and straps made to fit watches which will only accept the proprietary size made for it. These are usually much smaller (18, 14, 16mm) and integrated into the watch body design.

How do i replace the strap with the new one


You can usually but a watch strap from you local shop and they will fit it for you.

If you particularly want a Fossil strap, then you can get one fro them by going to their web site "fossil.com", select "watches", then "men" or "women" and scroll down the page and near the bottom you will find a number of alternative straps that you can buy from them.

You can have it fitted by a local watch shop if you do not wish to fit it yourself.
