    Seiko Automatic wrong lugs

    Iíve had this watch years but rarely wear it due to it having the wrong lugs on it
    Any tips how to get the correct fitting ones for this strap?
    This one makes the pin bend so it looks poor

    I believe you are looking for correct bracelet end links, not lugs

    I could be wrong but the bracelet looks correct for the watch. Did you buy it new?

    It looks like the pins have bent due to use and you might be able to get new ones as long as the existing ones screw or push out. If so itís a very simple fix.

    Alternatively you could look on eBay for a replacement bracelet or even put it on a rubber dive strap or NATO. I have a couple of rubbers Iím selling at the moment so PM me if youíre interested.

    From the pictures, the bracelet end links look fine to me.
    Regarding the damage to the pin, it looks to me like the bracelet has been twisted or subjected to some sort of sideways impact or pressure and that has caused the damage. Id start just by fitting new spring bars.
    Good luck everybody. Have a good one.

    hopefully this will help, the end links and the spring bar seem to be the issue.



    the 6 o'clock spring bar is rooted and looks like it has bend the end link. a new set of spring bars and a little reshape of the end link and you will be good.

    Itís that end link that I thought was called a lug that I bought to replace a lost one that doesnít quite fit properly. The pin was straight but doesnít go through cleanly as holes donít align.
    Any suggestions where to buy the right lugs and what info from watch do you need to ensure correct one

    What you need to do is measure the gap between the lugs, which are the pointy out bits of the actual watch, I suspect they will be 20mm, then you need to measure the width of the last bit of the bracelet that connects to the end pieces, I suspect this will be 10mm, with this info you should be able to find curved end pieces to fit, alternatively look at the
    Numbers on the back of the watch, there will be a set of 4 and a - followed by another set of 4 numbers and letters eg 7548-7000. You can then search for a bracelet using this code ( the watches model number)

    7S26-0040 on the caseback which makes it an SKX033 with 22mm lug width. The bracelet from an SKX031 will also fit. If it was me I would replace that whole lose bracelet with a new one. Maybe the original Seiko clasp would swap over.

    With screwed links

    Or push pins
