    It Doesn't Come With a Buckle?? ...need Help With Ordering a Watch Band.

    Forgive me if I am posting in the wrong subforum. This is my first post and there are literally millions of sub forums here (I counted).

    Anyway, my question is this: I want to buy this sweet watch band for my Citizen Nighthawk but I think I may be too stupid to own something like this. ....It doesn't seem to come with a buckle. Is my assumption correct? If so, how do I get a buckle and are they easy to install (does it require special tools to install the buckle).

    Use the buckle you have...you do have one on the old band right? they come off.

    That is correct, in that case they expect you to transfer your Steinhart buckle. Buckles are easy to find at many of the online strap stores, try the strap forum here for lots of options. Most buckles attach with small spring bars just like the strap to the lugs of most watches. You can put them on usually with just your fingernail to compress the spring bar and slip the second side in. Removing them usually takes a spring bar tool but you shouldn't need one since you are just installing it not replacing the buckle.

    Thanks for the quick response. Yeah, I have a bracelet on my nighthawk. I already have a spring bar tool on order. So I guess I should be all set. It looks like my expensive strap purchase is turning into a VERY expensive strap purchase. ...but I gotta have it. It looks saweeeet!

    This may sound like a stupid suggestion, but, you could pick out another leather band that already has a buckle attached

    He won't have trouble finding a riveted pilot strap with a buckle if he looks.

    I bought this one from Steinhart, comes on a Steinhart deployant and is tapered IWC style. Awesome strap and it's the same price as the non tapered model you inquired about.
