    The double lug holes in your TWCO Sea Rescue Diver, this is why.

    Many people noticed that the TWCO Sea Rescue Diver is equipped with double lug holes.
    I also received several questions on why I designed it like this.

    I will be happy to explain the reason behind the double lug holes.
    See the first picture to see the double lug holes.


    Picture 1

    First of all I can inform you that both the TWCO SS bracelet and the TWCO Silicon straps use the lower lug holes.
    Now why did I provide the lugs with an extra pair of lug holes?

    The reason is simply and only aesthetic. If somebody would like to put on another strap, say for instance a
    NATO or a leather strap, it simply looks better if you use the top lug holes.

    To show you the difference I have added the following 2 pictures.
    Picture 2 shows how it looks when you use the lower lug holes (same holes as for the TWCO bracelet and straps).
    Picture 3 shows how it looks when you use the top lug holes.


    Picture 2.



    Picture 3

    Although a matter of taste, IMHO it simply looks better when you use the top lug holes for other straps.
    However the choice is yours and at least you have something to choose!


    Pictures 2 and 3 are taken with a NATO strap, if you put on a leather strap you will see the difference even better.

    Trust this information helps, and for any questions or remarks just let me know.

    Excellent idea! Brings leather straps an NATOs closer to the watch case leaving less of a gap making it look much better. Good design.

    This doesn't really answer the question on why the bracelet and rubber weren't designed to use the top holes. I find double holes a pain, trying to slot them into the right one.

    Which would you rather, thinner end pieces on your bracelet or double lug holes? Know which I prefer!

    I don't see why the end pieces need be any different just because the hole in them is in a slightly different spot.

    Don't like to flame Chris-John, but if you don't like double lug holes, don't buy the watch. Putting different straps on TWCO watches is easy compared to something like the Doxa rubber strap. Find something with a little substance to complain about.
