Default Is there a difference between 1.78mm spring bars and 2.5 mm spring bars vis a

vis securing a Seiko diver automatic? In other words, will my Seiko be safer on a bracelet with 1.78mm spring bars than the 2.5mm ones?


Thanks,

it all depends on what it was make to take.
Seiko Divers that require fat spring bars need them. You can damage the spring bar holes if you use a smaller size, and of course its less safe.
Saying all that, it seems many people do use smaller spring bars, mostly to fit bands/straps that can not take the fat spring bars.

Here's an ancient post regarding this situation...

http://www.network54.com/Forum/78440/message/1187287032/Irritating+dive+watch+problem+solved!!!!!

It's a quick and dirty solution with no ill after effects.

Since then, Will jean has been offering for sale 1.80mm spring bars with the "fat" end pin for those models using 2.5mm spring bars in 20mm (works for 19mm lugs, too) and 22mm lengths.
