Picked up a Haveston A-2 NATO for an Eco-Drive. Though the thickness is 1.4MM it won't fit between spring bar and case. I have curved spring bars on order to accommodate the strap, but have never used the curved spring bars before. Hoping they're not difficult to install with the proper spring bar tool.

Why didn't you just bend s/bars that are slightly too long?



What a waste - ordering specific s/bars - time, money and wasteful packaging :undecided:


There would no doubt be a watchmaker or jewellery shop near you with them.

Old school method:
Put the straight bars between two spoons and press.
Works every time.
Great idea
Thank you for sharing it with us
Truly appreciate it
God Bless,John

I have used these curved spring bars on vintage Crotons and Bulovas. They work great.

Agree. Were no harder to install than a straight spring bar. Strap that wouldn't pass through the straight bars on an Eco-Drive worked flawlessly with the curved bars.
