What is the watch strap adapter?

Watch strap adapter also called lug connector, bridge, or curved end. It has a metal adapter or plastic adapter.

Watch band with adapter:

  • No gap in between the watch case and strap. Perfectly match
  • Easy to break from the adapter
  • More expensive and difficult to compatible with. If you want a perfect watchband to fit your watch, you can try to see if the same adapter is available from Drwatchstrap. If not available, then you can consider the flat-end watch band. Please be aware that NOT all flat-end watch bands would fit all models. 

Watchband without adapter:

  • There is a gap in between the watch case and strap.
  • More reliable and durable
  • More reasonable and definitely fit

Why the watch strap with an adapter is easier to break?

Normally the adapter is thicker and harder. If the watch band break, normally start from 2 positions.

First, pin holes where the watch buckle pin is inserted in. We take off and on the watch very often by opening and closing the buckle. normally the pinhole is the first place to break.

Second, where the adapter is connected to the watch case, the watch band is normally bent in this area. The adapter is hard, the leather part is softer.
