How to fit your NDC watch strap

Are you looking to update the style of your watch or just replace an old, worn-out strap? In this article, we'll be showing you how to fit your NDC watch strap and make your watch look brand new again.

Step 1: Preparation

Before we begin, you'll need a few tools. You'll need a spring bar tool (unless your watch has fixed lugs) and your new NDC watch strap.

Step 2: Removing the old strap

To remove the old strap, use the spring bar tool to gently push the spring bars out of the lugs. Be careful not to scratch the watch case (use cello tape to protect the watch) . Once the spring bars are out, gently lift the strap from the lugs. Then re fit the spring bars. 

Step 3: Fitting the new strap

Take your new NDC strap and feed one layer through the spring bars. 

Step 4: Adjusting the strap

Now it's time to adjust the strap to your wrist size. Position the hook where you want it and make sure the rectangular metal piece is in place. You can cut the excess off the strap and gently burn the ends with a lighter and punch to seal. Be careful as it can be hot.  It should look like the picture  below. 

Step 5: Final thoughts

And that's it! You now have a brand new NDC watch strap that fits perfectly.
