I have a Shogun that lacks the pin connecting one side of the bracelet to the other. It isn't the pin that the adjustment happens with, it is the one that also has the role of being what the flip lock grabs onto. I tried a regular pin (looks like an 18mm?), but the ends on this are apparently more rounded at the ends from looking at similar watches that use a similar system.

A pic:

Anyone know how to secure one of these?

I don't know whether new correct replacements are available but I repaired a broken clasp using a paper clip of the correct size.

Once cut to length I peened the ends over and it worked fine :)

Ha! I did the same to a Fossil watch once, then later bought an exact model on evilbay for $8.00, cannibalized the pin, and sold the donor for $11.00 on the same site with 'pin missing' :)

Still looking for the OEM pin for this clasp. It is NOT the same type of pin that secures the bracelet to the clasp. Anyone have a source? I contacted the normal Japanese dealers we all know, they said they can sell me the bracelet, but not the pin.
