    PRW-3000-1A band/strap question

    Hi, everyone. I was lucky enough to get an amazing deal on a brand new and legit PRW-3000-1A, and I am really excited to start using it. I have a number of other G-Shock pieces but this one has been on my list for a while. I wanted to know if there are any replacement straps/bands (either rubber, silicone, or metal) that are just a bit wider than the one it comes with (anything that doesn't taper down like the original one) but still keeps the little rubber feet/supports in place (as in I don't have to delete them from the equation) because I really like that feature and it truly helps with the fitment on my wrist. Thank you in advance for your time!

    The only thing I can think of is to use Casio strap adapters for the PRW-3000. These accept 22mm or 23mm one-piece straps, like 3-ring Zulu straps. A NATO strap without the extra flap will also work.

    The parts are called Cover/End Piece.

    I did see those, but those actually do delete/remove the foot/support (called "Bottom Cover/Band" https://www.pacparts.com/part.cfm?sku=91087110629) and they only have the little raised vertical part to make it look like it is still there/keep the aesthetics in place. I guess I could try cutting out a notch for the vertical fin on the feet, but I don't think that would work?

    The strap adapters replace the strap wings, but they do include a similar piece that curves from the underside of the adapter to the case back.

    The adapters also work on the PRW-3100, PRW-6000 and PRW-6100.

    I'm currently using my PRW-S6000Y-1 on a Vario 24mm elastic single-pass NATO strap. It takes a little effort to get it threaded through the adapters, but once there it stays in place pretty well. 22mm straps tend to allow the watch to slide along the length of the strap (and side to side as well), and 23mm straps are harder to find.

    Here it is when I had it on a Maratac 22mm 3-ring Zulu.

    Here are some photos showing the PRW-3000G-1 adapters on my PRW-S6000Y-1. The first two photos are with the Vario 24mm elastic NATO. Some of the pics are a bit out of focus, but at least you can see the shape of the adapters.

    If I recall correctly, the stock PRW6000 strap a bit wider than the PRW3000 strap and can fit it with no issues.

    I don't have a PRW-3000 for comparison, but the stock strap from my PRW-S6000Y-1 is just over 19mm wide at the tail end. As far as I know, this strap is the same width as other PRW-6000 straps.

    Thanks so much for all of the information and the detailed reply, sir! I was looking at the CF PRW-6000 strap and I think I might go that route... I just need to internally justify spending that much on the strap... We'll see!

    Is your PRW-3000 strap narrower than 19mm?

    I just took a caliper to it and it is 17.8mm wide (so probably 18 with some error)... 1mm isn't a huge difference I guess, but I still might pull the trigger...
