    Replace rubber strap with metal strap

    Hi guys,

    I'm interested in buying this Aquaswiss Trax 3h watch.

    However I'm not a fan o rubber straps.
    Instead I would to replace the rubber band with a metal strap. As I'm looking to the watch I am not certain that a metla bracelete would fit.

    Does anyone have experience with these replacements? Can this be done?

    Thank you.

    Most likely, however some watches have a certain design at the lugs and can only fit their own band. However with a rubber strap it can probably be done. Just a matter of finding a bracelet of the same width that you like. They will come in many widths just as leather or rubber do.

    By the way, I think you would get more responses if you gave a little brief introduction in your first post. It makes you seem impolite (which I'm sure you are not). Also nobody at all can help you without pictures posted.

    Thanks jcoffin.

    Thanks for the heads up. I am a portuguese watch fan who owned mainly Swatch watches through life. And now I'm looking for a new watch :)

    As for the subject I didn't put any pictures up as it was my first post and I was not allowed to put any links.
    But now I can, so:
