Measure Your Wrist Before Getting A Replacement Watch Strap

Hello my watch connoisseurs, Have you been ready to replace the watch strap you have for something more stylish and comfortable ? Well before you go on and replace your Rolex watch strap, we need to get one thing measured out first, and that your wrist and lug width. So next time you’re ready to order the Rubber B universal watch straps, you will no longer be lost when you see lug width of 18 mm, 20mm, 22mm Measure you’re wrist before you buy! You don’t want the watch strap to fit you too loose or not fit you at all . We’re not measuring  your male parts here, so no need to feel the need to round up!  With that said accuracy matters here. Be sensible in your measurements, and unless you’re well over 200 lbs, it’s unlikely you have a 7 1/2 or 8 inch wrist. Take into consideration, my measurements I’m 6’1″ and weigh 202 lbs and my wrist measurement is 6.75 to 7 inches/ 17.5-18 cm – in most instances my ideal strap length is 130/80mm)

Measuring Your Wrist

Using a flexible tape measure (sewing type), wrap around your wrist where your watch would go (snug, and with no gaps but not tight).​​ If you don’t have one of these tape measures, you can always do the same with a piece of string and then over lay the length on a tape measure or ruler. MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE!!

Here is a handy chart that I’ve been using for determining your best strap lengths. This chart is designed primarily with larger and thicker Panerai style straps. Wrist size                                Strap length (Long side/Short side) 6.0″ – 6.5″ (15cm – 16.5cm)….= 115/70 6.6″ – 6.9″ (16.6cm – 17.5cm) = 125/75 7.0″ – 7.5″ (17.6cm – 19cm)… = 130/80 7.6″ – 7.9″ (19.1cm – 20cm)… = 135/85 8.0″ – 8.5″ (20.1cm – 21.5cm) = 140/90 8.6″ – 9.0″ (21.6cm – 23cm)… = 150/100
