    Help/advice re a seiko grand quartz 9943 integrated strap

    Hi,

    i've recently got a seiko grand quartz 9943 in lovely condition, but the XBB240L strap is a couple of mm too short so it's a bit tight on the wrist. I suspect finding extra links will be pretty hard. Dose anyone have any ideas about how to extend the strap? I'm not sure those strap extenders you see on amazon/ebay would work given the type of clasp the strap has.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    That is going to be like looking for a needle in a haystack....

    Stay away from those extenders offered on Amazon, etc. They are usually of very poor quality and fitment.

    If you have not already, you might post this request in the "Wanted To Buy" sub forum of this site, and you might also consider asking some of the experts in the "Grand Seiko" sub fourm of this site as well.

    Good luck.

    thanks. I've posted a WTB thread so will see what comes back. I'll also try in the grand seiko sub forum as you suggest. there are a few of these watches about but i'd rather not buy another watch just for a few links.

    these photos are from the shop website i bought it from, but they more than do it justice. PM me for shop details if you are interested (unsure of rules about recommending people).

    Go on ebay and find somebody selling this watch. Setup ebay alerts so every time this watch is listed you get email.

    Contact the seller and ask him to take out few links and sell them to you for an outrageous price he can not refuse ;) Use paypal so you're protected just in case links don't arrive.
