High quality stainless steel spring bars supplied in a set of 3 pieces. The bars are 2mm in diameter and the tip diameter is 1.1mm.
This is a set of 3 pieces of KSSFP 22mm spring bars. They have thicker tips than the usual spring bars and they are designed for diver's watches. The bars themselves are 2mm in diameter which is also slightly thicker than a regular spring bar.
Whatever diet these "Fatbars" went on it worked, they’re down from a podgy 2.5mm thick to a more svelte 2.0mm which means I can now use my rubber dive strap without worrying that it might bust a gut. The ends are the same as the stock Seiko ones at 1.1mm so no worries about widening of lug-holes, either. The decision to sell in packs of three does seem quite odd (no pun intended) but at this price better to grab two pack just to have spares, they really do seem to be good quality & great value. Lastly the service & delivery from WatchGecko is, as always, fantastic; order placed Tuesday, bars arrived Wednesday, free delivery too! Keep up the excellent work chaps & chapesses.
Got this for a Seiko Padi to use on a leather strap. When I used the standard thin pins for the leather strap I was getting a clicking sound; These are slightly thicker but not as thick as the ones originally supplied and are perfect. Would be tempted to get another set in 24mm for the converters on the Apple Watch.
Purchase for my Seiko SRP777 Turtle divers watch, perfect, very quick service as always.
I purchased these pins to overcome a problem connecting a Seiko 631 bracelet to a Seiko SRP777 watch. The Seiko Fat boy spring pins, provided with the bracelet, are 2.5mm diameter and are too good a fit within the bracelet link and would allow the pin ends (or at least one end) to fully snap into the lugs. These 2mm pins allowed some very slight movement in the mating parts and hence both pin ends were able to snap into the lugs. The only very minor problem was that when fully compressed they were 0.2mm longer than the lug width. I simply stoned off 0.1mm from each end. A very good quality pin and a great fix for this problem.
These springbars are absolutely brilliant for use with a Seiko diver and a standard sized strap. The Seiko "fat bars" that come with the watch are too thick to fit many straps. I tried using standard springbars but found the ends were too small for the Seiko's lugholes - they allowed movement which could cause wear in the steel. These are the perfect solution. The 1.1mm tips fit the lugholes of my SKX007, and they are thin enough to fit my Zuludiver rubber strap. Exactly what I needed and couldn't find anywhere else.
They also arrived 2 days after I ordered them, with free shipping. For such a small and cheap item that's pretty amazing.
