    Where can i purchase 16mm Solid Bronze/Brass Buckle for watch straps?

    Hello, there fellow thread viewer,

    Do you know where I can purchase 16mm solid bronze or brass buckle? Preferably solid bronze buckle. I'm not interested in plated bronze or brass buckle. I've looked everywhere and had no luck so far. I tried eBay & Etsy. They only had plated brass buckles for 16mm. I even tried Amazon and a bunch of micro watch brands (that make bronze&/brass dive watch) sites under their accessories. Still no luck. I'm starting to wonder they don't exist.

    I'm looking for an 18mm and 20mm myself. I am watching this on eBay, but the tang might be too wide for the strap I want to put it on.

    Unfortunately, the bronze buckles I've come across throughout all the sites have all wide tang. So what I did was I purchased a leather hole puncher. You can get the wooden mallet leather hole puncher for cheap at eBay. I would recommend 2mm(little tight) or 2.5mm wide leather hole puncher. I use it to punch hole on the existing tang hole on the leather strap. That widens the tang hole on the leather to fit those wide buckle tang.

    They do have them but only from 18mm and above. I'm looking for 16mm.
