    Zulu strap question re my PRG240

    If this should be in the strap forum, please move.

    I'm posting here as I like you guys!!

    I'm looking at putting an orange Zulu on my 240 and am deliberating between a 3 and 5 ring strap. What experience do u guys have with these? Are 5 rings really necessary?

    (and I'm getting the PRW1500 adaptors too - all from Ticktox since I'm UK. )

    ta muchly.
    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Not necessary, but looks better on some watches. Take for example, the Ecozilla. A 5-ring looks much better on it and balances out the metal somewhat. Goes without saying it's more secure as well.

    So the extra rings just secure the loose strap? They don't play any role securing the module?

    I think I'm being stoopid aren't I? Buy the damn thing already hehe.

    I could not find it quickly, but there is a way to use the 5 ring zulu that it actually takes the stress from thespringbars, making it less likely to tear out one of them.

    I believe Sedi posted a pic of how to route the strap that way and iirc it added some bulk to teh watch.

    I like a 3 ring or a plain one piece strap (Nato? G-10? or what they call it...) better, but that´s just my 2 pence.

    You probably mean this.

    Cheers, Sedi

    Ah cheers gang.

    I think the 3 will be the answer for me. Wishing I had two extra is better than being annoyed at two I can't do anything with.
