Thread: What are these spring (not) bars?

    What are these spring (not) bars?

    Just picked up this DC56, went to change it onto a NATO, only to find these bad-boys...

    I think you'll find that part of the sheath of the springbar is still in the strap.

    If it isn't, I've never seen a springbar like that before.

    As Jim says, there should be a sheath there somewhere.

    Same for both. No sheaths.

    Look to be engineered this way

    Damasko springbars, designed like that to give a perfect fit with their bracelets I believe.

    Yep, you're right.

    Here's a thread from last year, including photos -

    Well there you go! Who would have thunk it.

    Anyway, some seiko spring bars later, and the roughest old admiralty grey NATO I have, and we are good to go.

    Need to get some bars that slightly better fit the lug holes for diameter (there is a little play in these) but it will do for now.
