    Seiko strap replacement - SSA287K1

    Good afternoon,

    Looking for a bit of help if anyone can assist.

    I have a SEIKO 5 Sports Mens RED/BLACK NATO Strap SSA287K1 (preferred the red detail in the design)

    However I would like to swap the Nato for 3 fold clasp push buckle release as seen on the SEIKO 5 SPORTS MENS SSA283K1.

    I know the width is 22mm and I have a strap from another Seiko (SNN231P1) that I changed to a leather band, same 22mm. However, something is missing regarding how the strap sits with the lugs, or does it simply sit under the watch.

    Any help would be appreciated. Search online for info but can't seem to find any.

    Tough to match up other bracelets to an OEM case. Most have slightly different tolerances, possibly differ in thickness, as well as the curvature of the lugs, so there is a chance nothing will fit exactly as intended regardless if the lug size is identical, based on experience.

    Might repost this request in the Seiko forum of this site if you don't get many responses here, but usually it can be hard to get other bracelets to match completely and sit flush on a watch it was not meant for.
