    Question GR-8900A-1ER - Can I fit a velcro strap?

    GR-8900A-1ER - G-Shock - Timepieces - Products - CASIO

    I have one these on its way to me right now, can I ft a velcro strap to it? If so what size and do I need an adapter etc etc? I'm in the UK BTW, so UK links would be very helpful.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Watchuseek!

    What sort of velcro strap are you trying to use? Casio's velcro straps normally DO use adapters, and this thread has links to two other threads that talk about the GR-8900 on adapters: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/gr8...s-1599466.html

    Since you're in the UK, try Tiktox.com -- here's a direct link to their adapters: G Shock adaptors - Tiktox They also have a few Casio velcro straps, but I've seen a better selection on eBay.

    Thanks, I was hoping to go with something like this:

    24mm Panatime Olive Velcro Watch Band with PVD Hardware For Bell & Ross | eBay

    I found a an ebay seller in Ireland selling them for a little cheaper than that, can't seem to find them again right now though.

    Actually here's a better reference:

    Bell & Ross Style Nato Velcro Watch Strap in GREEN – WatchObsession

    looks like they require a 24mm width so can you confirm that the 8900A-1ER has a 16mm width? If so then these adapters should fit?

    nope, the velcro you showed us already has something for the spring bar of the gshock goes through, just measure and chop it off to fit - no need for adapters at all
