    Will it fit? Looking for strap

    I recently received a G7800L. It comes with a leather strap that I don't like. I was looking for a resin replacement but they are hard to find for this model. I saw that a DW6900 strap has the same springbar length (16mm) Shoulder to shoulder the strap is 26mm. Wil this fit on a G7800L?

    I also would like to know how to get the leather strap of. I think I should use my tool through the holes in the back (see pic) is this the right way?

    I guess you're right about how to remove the strap. However I don't think a DW-6900 strap will fit - the lugs are completely different - even though the springbars are the same. And even if it does fit - it won't look good. There are some custom solutions however - try a forum search on G-7800+maratac or g-7800+elite.

    I don't like that Maratac solution. Crap if I knew that strap was so hard to find I wouldn't have bought the watch. I am gonna try to sell it I think.

    Couldn't you notch a generic resin strap?

    Wow, what a great strap! Are you sure you want to remove it??? These straps are not very easy to remove, but you have to put your springbar tool in one of the four square holes.

    It is actually even worse trying to put the strap back on

    Once it is off it will stay off. I am having it on sale now. If it doesn't sell I will keep it and look for an alternative.

    Hi
    I have the same watch and I don't like the strap too. Just wanted to know if you find a solution.
    Thanks
