    Loctite but not the heavy duty stuff as that might present problems later when you want to change out a strap.

    Tightening down daily? not a good idea as that will weaken the threads quicker and will add to the higher possibility of stripping them.

    Good idea actually, I used to use it on distributor caps when they had the little hairlines inside them, the nail stuff was perfect for the job, so why not use them on a tiny screw.

    I know what you're saying. I just said my GF needs it. Never try to explain the real intent for it's use, they won't believe you. They'll think you crossdress on the weekends!!

    Buy blue Loctite 242 in auto shop. It is a weak treadlocker.

    Re: Screw bars unscrewing

    lol, i would never put glue on the screw bars.. its most probably your strap that is doing the problem. I had similar issue to my homage, almost felt , good i cought it.
    If you use very hard leather strap, because of your wrist movement it unscrews the bars. I better suggest carrynig a screwdriver and oftenly check your watch. Yes its a pain, beeing so careful but try softer straps.
