    Question 22mm strap on 23mm lugs?

    What kinds of problems would it cause if I put a 22mm watch band on a watch with 23mm lugs?

    Aside from the gap look and a little wobble....actually depending on what kind of band, you probably should go for a 24mm band, and file/cut it down to fit the 23mm. That would look and fit better.

    I am going to get the 24mm. It is a maratac band, so it will probably just squish in without having to cut it.
