    Thoughts on after market buckles.

    I like having a buckle on each strap but at $120.00 it makes strap collecting very pricey. Who uses after market and if so who's?
    Thanks.

    Only have OEMs.. It took time to get a buckle for each strap but it worth it.
    For aftermarket ones, have a look at watchobsession.co.uk or bandrbands.com

    I just can't use aftermarket buckles. All OEM for me. It only takes a few seconds to switch them, so I just move the buckle when I change straps.

    it takes absolutely no time or degree of skill to change out an OEM, and I have yet to find an aftermarket buckle that's worthy of accompanying the watch.

    I have used a screw-in Pre-V PAM type buckle on a few occasions with a very thick/heavy strap... Aside from that, all OEM, all the time.

    I have a couple of non-OEM straps that were supplied with some straps I ordered from Indonesia. The quality is noticeably inferior, & I don't like using them.
