    Are there any good third party straps or bracelets for Swatch?

    I have a few older swatch models that I have ignored for years, as my wrist is just too large to comfortably fit in the original strap. I have a Body & Soul (on black leather strap) that I would really love to bring back to life. Any suggestions for a longer strap that would fit a swatch are appreciated.

    I have the same problem as you. Squiggly has some long straps. Hopefully members will point our more sources.

    A normal long strap can be modified to work on Swatches. But I have never done it. Maybe there is a tool that will do this. I'm visiting my watchmaker today. I'll ask him as I know he has some similar tools.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Hirsch actually has bands to fit Swatch. I'm not sure if they come in longer sizes than the originals, but it might be a good place to try. If you do a Google search for Hirsch and Swatch, you should get some hits for places to purchase them. They offer some interesting colors and variations.

    Some of the watch strap stores online have special sections for Swatch straps (oem or 3rd party), so you can often search for Swatch on those sites to find other options.
