    Sinn Rubber owners....keep an eye on those screws!!!

    fyi, just discovered this wk that one of the screws came out of my rubber/silicone strap clasp. Luckily I call Matt at Watchbuys and he found a replacement to send me. I immediately fetched the sinn tool and tightened the remaining ones left in the clasp. I honestly never thought to check these tiny things. Now i'm thinking of using blue loctite to ensure no more failures.

    Is it the same kind of hex screw like on the metal bracelet links? I've never examined a rubber Sinn strap up close, but want to purchase one soon for my Mil Type III. Can you please post of photo of the area where the screw backed out? Thanks!

    don't know how to upload photo's, shoot me a pm and i'll send you the pic. it is not the hex screws as in the bracelet (those i did loctite in), it is 4 very small screws in the clasp.

    Just a short followup...after contacting Matt at Watchbuys last wk, a new screw arrived in today's mail, perfect fit and i'm a happy boy again!!!

    Watchbuys has been a pleasure to deal with from start to finish on my two U1's, great customer service and followup.
