    Can anyone compare Strapcode engineer vs. watchadoo?

    I've seen a lot of watchadoos on the forum, just wondering if anyone can say the strapcode version is worth double the price of the watchadoo?

    They look pretty similar to me but from the pics the strapcode looks like it's put together a little 'tighter'.
    Regards,

    One vote for the Watchadoo. I have five or six in different widths.

    Only one strapcode super engineer and the screw system for the links has been a problem.

    Both are very nice but I agree with Jake613 based on previous experience, that the Strapcode Super Engineered can be tricky with its screw link set up.

    Thanks to both - if the less expensive one is getting the votes then my choice is pretty easy!

    I have both. No issues with either. The Super engineer is available in 22mm non-tapered, PVD etc, but otherwise, seems a bit more heavy duty than the watchadoo. ALso, I notice the super engineer has slightly larger gaps between the links. It's quite subtle, but noticable.

    Also, the strapcode clasp/buckle seems to be slightly more elegant, perhaps better quality (scissor style).

    I like both.
