Watch Band Measuring Guide

How to determine Watchband size:
 
 
Watchband size is the "width of the watch band" measured in millimeters. You can determine the size by one of these methods:
1)   Checking for a size imprint in millimeters on the back your current (leather) watchband.
2)   Measuring the distance between the lug ends of your watch head. (see diagram at right) with a metric or standard ruler. With the metric ruler you will see the proper millimeter size, with the standard ruler you will need to use the (chart below) to convert to inches to millimeters.

How to determine Watchband Length:
Watchband length is measured in inches. You can determine Watch band length by:
By subtracting the watch head measurement from your wrist size. NOTE: The average watch head is about 1" to 1 1/2" for larger men's watches. (all lengths are approximate, some styles may vary)

Leather watchbands can be buckled in several different positions, we have shown the longest length each of the sizes can fit. These are the approximate lengths of the band end to end. Remember you must add the measurement of the watch head (measure pin to pin) to the above measurements. Watchband + Watch head = total length needed. Compare this with your wrist size to determine what length is needed.

Metal watchbands can be adjusted, so we have shown the longest length each of the sizes can fit. We have not shown short lengths for metal watchbands because links can be removed to make them as short as required. Remember you must add the measurement of the watch head (measure pin to pin) to the above measurements. Watchband + Watch head = total length needed. Compare this with your wrist size to determine what length is needed.

How to determine Metal Watchband end styles:
Metal Watchband end styles are the shape of the watchband end where it connects to the watch. You can determine the style by viewing these examples:

Squeeze End
Fits several sizes.

Curve Squeeze End
Fits several sizes.
For rounded fit watches only.

Fixed Curved End
Fits One Exact Size.

 
Fixed Straight End
Fits one exact size, but can
be machined smaller.

Ring End
Fits ring end watches only.
