    G Shock NATO Adaptor - 20mm strap question

    Hi guys,

    My apologies if this has been discussed before - haven't been able to find this specific question.

    I have a G-5600E-1DR tough solar square and I'm wanting to pick up an adaptor so I can use my many NATO straps with it. All of the adaptors I've seen (such as the Vario and Jays and Kays ones) attach to the 16mm spring-bars of the G Shock and allow a 24mm one piece strap to be used. The problem is, all of my NATOs are 20mm and I think that feels like a more appropriate size strap for the small proportions of the G-5600E.

    Is there a G Shock adaptor available for 20mm straps? And if not, have any of you used 20mm straps with the 24mm adaptors? How does it look?

    Thanks!

    See this thread for info on the (best in my opinion) 22 and 20 mm adapters https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/ja...h-4907313.html

    Note that for a square g-shock you will want the so-called "small profile" version of the adapter, discussed and linked in the most recent messages (not the one linked on the first page). Then it will match the bezel width nicely.

    Yes, JaysAndKays has a 16/20mm metal adapter that is designed for the squares. I have installed these adapters on my GLS-5600CL-1.

    Thanks for pointing me to that thread and highlighting the metal 20mm adaptor - looks like exactly what I was after. Cheers!

    If not, and if nothing can be arranged on the J&K side, one option is to contact a friend/acquaintance in a country that they do ship to. And ask them to post the adapters in a regular envelope to the final target address. These are so small they fit a small envelope just like that. If there are no volunteers in sight, using an "official" shopping service might work, too. Services that specialize in ordering something and then forwarding it to somewhere the original seller doesn't. If in an unlucky position of J&K not shipping to your location, I think these particular metal adapters are still worth the extra hassle.
