Default Wearing a Narrow Strap on Wider Lugs

So I’m thinking of getting a Seiko SRPC07, and I already have a nice black bund strap with orange stitching it’d look nice on. The problem is that the watch has 22mm lug width and the strap is 18mm.

I’m really not a fan of having the spring bars showing, so is there something I could do to make things look a little more “professional”?

Go to your arts and crafts store and buy 4 contrasting beads with the internal diameter that matches the springbar. One each side of the strap. BTW, you'll never remove the strap again

Or buy the correct size strap as has been said ∆

From watchstyle.com


"Note whether the bracelet or strap is sized incorrectly, and be aware of the possibility of future problems if inappropriate. Often, the strap is too narrow or the spring bar is too short. This places too much pressure on both ends of the spring bar. Select the correct size strap or bracelet or replace it if requested."
