    Where to buy 18mm shoulderless spring bars

    I recently bought some 19mm and 22mm 'Horotec' shoulderless spring bars from an eBay seller and am impressed by the quality.

    He does have any 18mm ones though and a Google search isnt bringing up anything.

    Two questions:

    1. Does anyone know a good (preferrably on line) supplier that would have these?

    2. Any recommendations for superior alternatives and where I might get them

    Thanks!
    Ian

    ...and at the risk of sounding dim - 'single shoulder' is the correct term for 'shoulderless' as in ones without flanges that are used with drilled lugs?

    That's right Ian. I've used the 22mm version with my 40mm Everest and they seem sturdy enough. They take the weight of that watch with quite stout nylon Natos, both Eddie's Deluxe and Haveston.

    Right, got my head around it now - thanks Bob

    I have just fitted 22mm single shoulder bars to my step sons Casio Edifice so that he can wear it on a NATO - I am fed up fixing the bracelet on an almost weekly basis due to his rough and tumble lifestyle

    Ive also fitted 19mm ones to the Pogue as a I wear it on a Eulit. I now need some 18mm ones for the Amphibias and hopefully the new Everest when available

    What with having both sizes of Everest I don't keep up with any mooted changes. Has the Everest lug width been reduced? My 36mm version has 20mm lugs and the faux rivetted bracelet tapers to 16mm.

    No still 20mm

    My mistake - getting myself confused with the other new releases!

    I think that the latest version of the black dial is excellent

    I have just purchased some shoulder less bars from EBay seller watchnutwales .
    Swiss made , sold in pairs and just checked he has 18 mm available
    They seem to be as good as other bars I have owned or been installed on my serviced watches .
    I'm not connected to the seller but just giving you another option
