    swapping a clasp often

    Hi all, as the title says, I am currently waiting for the 013 to arrive, but couldn't help but ask these silly questions beforehand. I think most of you know this blue feet feeling

    If I want to swap the SEIKO clasp on my bracelet to the generic silicone strap for say, twice or three times a week, will it hurt the longevity of the "hole" of the clasp?. I am pretty sure once every week is not detrimental to anything, but I am looking forward to swapping these two straps quite frequently.


    I am sorry if my blue feet is killing this forum

    Anytime you use an object more, you're subjecting it to wear. Watch bracelets aren't generally designed for changing that often, so I imagine you would be affecting the longevity of the mechanism. There's also the chance of problems due to human error during frequent changes, as none of us are perfect and mistakes happen.

    Right, thanks for the answer. It is just that I really want to use the rubber for swimming more and the Oyster for the daily wear.

    Perhaps it'd just be easier to buy a second clasp?

    Heck, most people around here will probably tell you the answer is to buy a second 013, but I've got a mortgage, wife and three kids in private school so I tend to come up with stingier options

    I'm going to make KHDs dreams come true and suggest that you at least consider another 013. Changing anything will cause wear and tear and the more often that you carry out the procedure the more W & T there will be.

    Right, I am in a similar situation, I am still under my parents' wings, and I am studying abroad, so I don't want to burden them too much...:D

    Yes, and one pair of shoes for every step we take for W&T!
