    Newbie help. Strap for Sieko Prospex SSC289 chrono

    I recently picked up a Sieko Propex SSC289. I'm new to watches, and was wondering if anyone knew what kind of straps this might accept? It has 24mm lugs, but I'm wondering if the little screws on all four corners are for holding the band in place?

    Can anyone recommend straps that would fit? Thanks for any help you can give.

    The screws are part of the case construction, not the strap, but be careful with the strap you get for it. The lugs are very short, and it will not accommodate a strap that is too thick in the space between the springbar and the case. The strap itself can be thick (and should be, as it is a beefy watch) but that one space should be considered carefully.

    I see you are in Chicago. I remember visiting tons of watch stores on Michigan Avenue when I visited there. Surely some of those shops can show you some straps and maybe even show you how to install a strap? There are also YouTube videos that show how to change straps and will help you figure out how your current strap is attached and how it comes off. Part of the fun of the hobby is learning how to do this stuff. Jmho.
