I have been given this watch by a neighbour.It goes OK but the strap is a tad too small for me.

I tried to put a NATO strap on but the spring bar is too close to the watch case and won’t thread through.

Can I please ask for help. Can I buy extra links , if so, what do I search for and where do I look? I don’t even know if lengthening it is even an option.

If not, what other bracelet can I use? As mentioned the NATO was too thick to pass, but tbh it’s quite thin in my opinion.

This is a nice unusual watch and it seems a shame to put it back in its boxb241feaa5a87effa6b2ac2f6f7fe07a1.jpg

Sorry, I can’t help with the bracelet, though I’m sure someone else will be able to. However- nice backside shot, what about the face...?!

Thats a cool watch, it does look tight, but would using a curved spring bar help to give you a bit more room to thread a Nato through?

Cousins sell all sorts, their 1 Colour - Nato Style straps are quite thin, the also sell curved spring bars.

Cheers

You should be able to find a correctly sized clasp extender at Cousins UK...https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/extenders-for-3-fold-clasp-covers

You can sometimes find them on ebay, too. They are a quick and easy way to extend a bracelet when original spare links are no longer available.  

This is how they fit. The extender fits to the end of the clasp cover with a springbar...it should add about an extra 1/2" to 3/4" of length, and there are also 4 micro adjustment holes. These pics are of a Seiko 7T32 that I had and needed to extend.

It fits to the end of the clasp cover...this particular clasp cover was very short.

When fitted correctly, it looks like this...

Sorry for a late reply. The numbers on the back are, 6119 6400

I’ve been in touch with Seiko UK again and apparently Seiko Holland have a couple of original links to send me.
If this comes off, fine. If not I’ll get the extension

I can see me getting hooked. It’s a good job I haven’t money to burn
