There are a lot of nice watches/ straps in this page.
Straps are either held in by pins (solid or spring bar) or lug screws. With pins you just get one of those fancy strap change tools (~20) so that you don't risk wrecking the finish on the watch. Lug screws you just need the appropriate sized screw driver.

1mm isn't too big, I bet you can force it between the lugs with no damage to the strap. Ironically 2mm is too big to do that in my opinion.

That is correct, the lug size on the prc200 is 19mm but you can fit a 20mm strap with little issue.

Thanks for the info.

On another note with your PRC200's, how's your deployment clasp holding up?

I find mine is getting easier to get loose and just unclips frequently during the day...

Actually I purchased mine on the bracelet so I don't have the deployment.

I will most likely get a new strap for my PRC200
I'll take pics after i get it.

I see the PRC200 is a very popular choice.

Is there a pricing advantage there? Looks like it is in EU, and not that competitive.

For the one that I want, the us price would be around 1350, if i bought locally at an ad retail would be around 1800-1900 after tax.

It is that bright, though you need to have the lume fully charged (usually a few mins of sunlight will do). It stays that way for a few hours and gradually decreases overnight.

You can actually take any watch and have it relumed to be that bright with the new superluminova formula.

would be nice to get those blue superluminovas that the new omega PO has

On Rolex forums and WUS a few guys had their indicators redone to match the new DSSD color (just like the new PO).

I think it hurts the watch resale big time, though it costs around $300 for everything including bezel...big risk though.

Isn't The DSSD lume is the same as the New age ceramic sub.?

Do you know why they would need to change the bezel? The lume is inside the watch , i dont see the need to switch the bezel.

Not sure if the DSSD lume = new age ceramic sub, I was making more of a general comment while browsing some wrist shots around the usual forums.

You are correct, no need to change the bezel, but the indicators and the pearl can be relumed on there too, and is not much more expensive than just the base relume.

^ ahh ic since there is a lume part on the bezel too that makes sense.

The new sub already has the blue lume just like the dssd. Probably the non ceramic sub owners doing the conversion.

Do u post on rolexforums often?
