    watches without pins, slits for straps

    Ok, this is hard to express, because I don't know all the watch jargon, but I once found a watch online that was very interesting to me, because, the case was one solid piece of metal, with a slit in the sides for the band. That is, there were no pins. I believe the watch was designed by an Italian industrial designer, but I'm sure there are others like it. Can someone help me identify the watch or watches that have this feature.

    Dietrich is probably the most modern new brand to do this. I had a Locman "Change One" designed in Italy that was made that way (lugless) as well ...

    OP, I believe that several models of watches by Projects have a lugless arrangement where the strap is integrated into and through the watch case.

    Thanks. This is generally what I meant, although the one I've lost track of was a little more traditional in that the slits were off to the side and were bounded by "lugs." So, where the pins would have gone, there was a continuous piece of metal. Who else makes watches like this?

    Google “lugless watch” to see many possibilities, though not all that come up will be what you are looking for.

    I'd call the watch yankeexpress shows as "shrouded lugs".

    You definitely want to avoid any proprietary mounting tech-- if the company stops supplying spares (at whatever highway robbery prices they feel like charging) then you're SOL later when you need that replacement.

    Standard lugs can always be accommodated easily with 3rd party straps-- even if shrouded or "lugless" where they mount under the case.
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    I think what you're looking for is fixed lugs, like those used on military watches. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/any...s-1475377.html

    Bertucci makes watches with fixed lugs. You basically have to use nato type straps unless you make a two piece strap that can be attached to fixed lugs.

    Bertucci DX3, perhaps?
