    Curved lugs?

    Do you have preference on it?

    I love flexible lugs but not many companies make them. Curved are the next best thing. My Rolex never fit well as it has no curve on the lugs, however, I have a Seiko that has curved lugs and it sits perfectly flush on my wrist.

    Re: Curved lugs?

    Curved lugs - yes I like them, but they are not for every wrist. Small wrist wearing big watch - curved is great as it allows strap to taper and hugs the wrist. Large wrist wearing small (or normal size) watch - straight lugs are better else you risk having lugs dig into top of the wrist.

    Flexible lugs - novelty that is very rare and not sure if adds much value (I guess it does help w size and wrist shape issue)

    If watch is too big - no lugs make a difference and same if watch is too small.

    Clerc Hydroscaph series actually uses some very well hidden flexible lugs ... and 2 springbars per side of strap ...





    Zodiac makes an affordable version ...

    Not sure what exactly you mean by 'curved', but teardrop (or cornes de vache) lugs are one of the most beautiful things ever...

    Believe it or not, I have it on my list to get a watch specifically with that (whether it's VC or not, well, remains to be seen).
