    Vostok Neptune SE: Need suggestions for new band

    I have had this watch for about a year and I really enjoy it. I want to change the band and put on a new strap...either leather of fabric. The issue I face is that when the bracelet is removed, the watch case protrudes and makes it difficult to find anything to work with it. Has anyone else tried this? Any suggestions?

    I went with the leather one from Meranom,it would probably look a lot better on yours because of the color.Name:  P1020486.JPG

    Hey Tok,

    Thanks a bunch! I had looked for a band at Meranom and could not find any. I searched straps and bands and no results, but did find it under "parts"

    Just ordered it and you made my day. Hopefully I can help you one day.

    All the best!

    Sorry I forgot ,you might need to order the pins also,I think they are different than the ones that come on the bracelet,but I'm not sure.Maybe they can add a set to your order,or you can ask Meranom.

    First you will need these pins:
    https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-cla...case-pins.html

    You can also get this strap from Meranom that was mentioned above:
    https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-cla...her-strap.html

    Alternatively you can cut a notch into any 20mm(?) strap and use it with those pins on your SE Neptune. I got the pins, but haven't got a strap yet.

    Thanks for clarifying that haejuk,wish that I had remembered sooner about the pins,they should really be included with the strap in my opinion,but apparently they aren't.

    I wasn't sure if they were included with the strap, but for $1.50, I would rather be safe than sorry. I got myself the pins, but have yet to cut up any straps. You have to be really sure you want them only for this watch :)

    In the description for the strap, this is written at the end: "Note: Fixing pins attached"

    Not sure if that means you are ok or not. If you send Dimitry a message through the Meranom, he replies quickly and could clarify for you.

    You definitely need the pins. I modified my own strap.

    Hopefully you're right Rothko,when I ordered my strap I also ordered two sets of pins,or I think I did ,maybe they are sold as a single item.Anyhow,all I received was four pins, so I concluded they weren't included with the strap,but maybe I was wrong.It would be crazy to sell somebody a strap with no way to attach it.Surely the strap will come with the pins,but I would recommend getting a few extra just to be on the safe side.
