    Strap modification

    I couldn’t find a decent 2 piece nylon strap to fit on my Precista COSC.

    I was finding the deployant a little uncomfortable in the hot weather on my timefactors strap.

    So I took the deployant off then marked the end that would take the buckle with a silver ink pen.

    Then taking a broken Bergeon end I heated it up and made a whole in the strap gradually opening it until the pin fitted in,then smoothing the hole the same way.

    Much as I had liked it on a NATO as someone pointed out to me I could lower the watch quite a bit with a 2 piece strap.

    Not a major job but I am pleased how it turned out.

    Now you need a bead blasted matte finish buckle to match the case of the head.

    True, I just used an old buckle I had for the moment.

    I have never managed to make a good job of new holes in nylon, yours looks excellent.

    Thanks,I was lucky the broken bit was just the right diameter plus the turbo lighter gets the metal red hot for a clean hole.
