    Question Can I ask about Pro Treks here? Im after a black bracelet for my PRW-1300Y-1VER

    Just ordered a PRW-1300Y-1VER Military Stealth but its coming with a resin strap

    Where can I get my hands on a bracelet for it?

    Or can I even change it to another sort of strap? Nato, different rubber etc?

    Or even better have a missed a thread already talking about this? (sorry)

    Thanks

    I would give Keith a ring at tiktox.com.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    This is were I have ordered my watch from and he doesn't have any.
    Im waiting to find out if he can get me one or point me in the right direction.

    Is It possible to fit a strap from another pro-trek / pathfinder?

    Tiktox has adapters that you can order to change from the resin strap to a Nato or Zulu type strap.

    See here: http://www.tiktox.com/prw1300-conver...90141740f52d3b

    I just ordered the same watch and the strap adapters and am waiting on arrival.

    Keith has said he can order a black bracelet and adaptors from Japan.
    Prob around the £40 mark.
    I'll wait and see how I feel about the watch before I order extras.

    if that price is correct, it is rather a steal and you should take it. usually you pay a lot more for a bracelet, sometimes they cost even as much as the whole watch...

    I think it is quite a good idea to put a bracelet on the PRW-1300 because when i still had one of mine, i always found the resin strap too stiff and the angle of the lugs too sharp to be comfortable. it certainly depends on the size and shape of ones wrist but it didn't work good for me. on the other hand, i tried a 1300 with a bracelet once and it felt a whole lot better.

    Hi Jimmy,

    Can you wait a bit, until I get all the parts I have ordered?

    I am trying this out (for excrutiating detail see https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=247480)

    So far I have most of the main parts, but I am just waiting for a pair of spring pins. As soon as I have got the entire kit of parts needed to go from resin strap to black titanium bracelet, I will post the full story, parts lits, cost, supplier, and any fitting problems......

    Watch this space!

    Cheers,
    Spanners

    I just received my new Casio PRW-1300Y-1VER from tiktox. I also completed the swap from a resin band to a zulu tonight using the following adapter set from tiktox:

    I have not taken pics, but will try to do so over the weekend.

    Jimmy1, I hope you like it as much as I do. I am currently wearing on a zulu and it feels great. I cannot wait to learn all of the features.

    Touchdown (rubbish pics, will do some better ones with my review)
    Loving it may not need to change the strap
