After trying some different aftermarket options (nato, straight endlink bracelet) i've noticed that the lug holes on my propilot date are drilled really close to the case. The result being that even feeding a thin nato through this space is a tight squeeze. Even with the thinnest springbars, a leather nato of medium thickness would not fit through, and it also didn't accept a straight endlink bracelet due to lack of clearance. Even the OEM canvas bracelet shows wear where it rubs against he case.
Compared to my other watches, the lugs on this watch are not short, yet the strap clearance at the lugs is way less than other watches with very short lugs (seiko turtle for example)
This unfortunately limits aftermarket strap and bracelet options. Has anyone else noticed this when trying to change straps on this watch?
