    Help! New to strap swaps - need a strap for my new Edifice

    I purchased a Casio Edifice EQSA500DB-1A and I believe it is coming with a metal band as well as a resin band. I would really like to get an additional leather band (with some red stitching or something maybe?).

    Casio Edifice - EQSA500DB-1A Mens, Analog, Wrist, Watch


    • Anything I need to know about Casio straps? I've read about lugs and proprietary vs. "normal" and I could not find an answer regarding Casio/my watch in particular.
    • Recommendations on a particular strap? I don't want to go ridiculous in cost but I would be willing to check out any options.
    • Any standardized guides on learning how to swap a strap? This is very new territory to me...


    Amazon claims a 25mm band width. Guessing that I would probably be fine going with 24mm straps?


    Any help would be great I've done a lot of searching on this forum and this forum led me to my decision on watch as well so thanks!

    Get the watch bwefore you buy a new strap. That way you'll have a much better idea of what to shop for.

    Getting that bracelet off won'tbe hard - a standard springbar tool and a steady patient hand will have it off without harmin under a minute.

    Then, measure the lug width for yourself.

    For leather, I think black with red stitching is a sound plan. It's a sporty watch, and would suit a heavier strap I think.

    Yes, other Citizen Grand Signature models have a nice black strap with red stitching OEM, and they look very nice.
