STRAPMATES™ are ultra-precision cut clear high preformance silicone urethane washers. They are placed onto the springbars between the strap and the lugs of your watch and eliminate any unwanted gaps between your strap and the watch.
I created STRAPMATES™ in 2005, long before I started making straps. Like many watch enthousiast, I found that changing straps on a given watch is part of the fun of owning a fine timepiece. Unfortunately, after many strap changes, the leather will be compressed enough to loose its precise fit on the watch and start to wiggle.
A 20mm strap will easily loose 0.5mm to 1.0mm in width over time. Same with the buckle end of the strap from removing the buckles.
Strapmates are designed to fill this gap and stabilize the strap. They are clear and indiscernible to the eye.
Strapmates are soft with good energy rebound, therefore will not scratch the lugs and are reusable.
Strapmates can be used on metal bracelets with straight end pieces.
Strapmates are ideal for widening straps, if you're not in the market for purchasing a new strap.
