It's always best to check this size before you purchase a replacement watch strap, you can then view the correct sizes available for your watch on our website .

Inaccurate readings by just a few millimetres could lead to your strap having a loose fitting or either not fitting at all. It is best to use a pair of callipers (vernier) or a ruler (a tape measure is not advised) and please note it is the internal dimension you need.
