Longines strap seems short

Post by Robti on Fri Apr 28 2017, 10:02

Hi I just bought a s/h conquest with leather strap and have had to move the buckle to the second last hole to get a comfortable fit.

Now I always assumed I had a small wrist till now, so just wondering if this sounds right ?

Thanks

i always find standard straps too short which is another reason why i only wear bracelets, if you bought the longines brand new try contacting the seller and see if they will provide a longer strap, alternatively eBay is a good source for extra long straps and you can usually swap the buckles over as well......hope that helps

Watch straps can vary a lot. I would say I had small wrists at around 7 inches so would expect to use the last or second last hole for the strap to be at its smallest. I would be surprised to need to use the hole for the 2nd largest position.

If you find the strap comfortable though that may be the ideal strap length for your wrist. I would certainly prefer that to a longer strap where the end of the strap would curl right round the side of the wrist if that makes sense.

As Domecurb suggested though, if bought new, you could always make an enquiry to see if there are any other options you may prefer.

measure the lug width and check ebay for a suitable XL strap, they are not expensive Wink
