Hi Tom

Thnx for the info. I have asked them and sadly they are a little stuck with what they can say...they are required to only recommend what Citizen has 'authorised'...so because my watch came with a rubber strap, they only offer similar straps!

I think I have groked what i need and will see what they send and I'm 90% sure it will fit...and if not it WILL fit one of my other Promasters!

ciao

Hi Nunzigam. 馃檪

There's no need to thank me. ..All the thanks goes to you really ! 馃槈

Honestly think you have a great mindset about this, and I love
how 'if' the bracelet doesn't end up fitting. That you are already
thinking ahead to make some cool lemonade out of any possible
lemons. (y)No matter how you slice it, this is sure to be a win win
situation for you.

Hey nunzigam, oh nice, I am so glad it arrived, and that it
all looks to have worked out perfectly. 馃榾馃槑 Check it out ! 馃槸

It definitely fits wonderfully, and looks phenomenal from here.
And I know that you, or rather all of us had our fingers all
crossed that the bracelet would be the correct one. ..Or at
the very least fit alright, and worked. But now you can put
your mind at ease, because it really does look excellent sir.
Continuing, or carrying over the outstanding feel of the case,
and bezel right over on to the wrist.

It just rocks nunzigam ! (y) Thank YOU for the report, as
well as pics. ..A SUPER Citizen congratulations there !!!

I just wanted to add to this post by giving a big thumbs up to Bianca at MastersInTime. She went above and beyond to help make sure i had the right item (and made the return process simple and easy).

I'm now awaiting another bracelet from them and a new one from WatchGecko... so will be excited to see them when they arrive!

Take care everyone and thanks for your help and feedback!

I bought my first watch from them lately, from the US, and it went very smoothly. No drama at all. I recommend them now.

And nice watch!

Hi guys, I just finished reading this post and would also be interested in the bracelet option can you point out the case number you used in order to get the right fit ? Kind regards,

Hi frdedelis

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Hope you had a great holiday season!

So, i had a long and informative email discourse between myself and the Mastersintime people...really helpful and responsive. I had LONG freight times to get to Australia...but with patience came the reward!

In the end, the watch I was trying to match was:

Citizen Fugu NY0110-13E (Case code R013246)

And i ended up ordering this one:


It fits perfectly, however, i did have to slightly bend one log to make it fit... now this could be because the spring bar wasn't the right size...it didn't ship with any spring bars...or the holes on my particular case were slightly misaligned on one end...the other end was fine.

I hope this helps and please reach out if you'd like more detailed information.

Ciao

Thanks for the reply and no worries about the delay since it was the holidays and I didn't expect to get a response as the thread went kind of cold :p.

I will purchase the bracelet and give you guys news as soon as I can.

Great community. Thanks again!!!

Looking forward to hearing about your experience with them. I have heard great things about UncleStraps (Uncle Straps, Inc) and have just ordered my first bracelet from them...it's apparently an Omega Speedmaster beads of rice...20mm... I've seen others use these on Dan Henry 20mm watches... and they have nice curved endlinks.... so I'm hopeful they will fit the citizen diver also... and perhaps even my Bulova Lunar Pilot!

Have a great Canadian weekend... hope it's not too cold!

What a win! Looks fantastic!!

I think the citizen support folks are very locked into what the model was sold with and any information you get from them sticks to a very narrow range鈥 however trying out straps that should work - esp on related dive models - seems to work ok. Glad it worked out.
I鈥檒l let you know how the unclestraps bracelet turns out when I get it next week!

hey there everyone

so, the uncle strap arrived and it looks like it will take a bit of convincing to fit the fugu鈥 the curved end links on the strap will need widening which I鈥檒l do when I get a bit of time.

it does however fit my dan Henry 1962 speedy homage perfectly鈥 and makes it a little dressier!

highly recommend their bracelets鈥 great quality and quick to get to Australia from the US!!

Will post again, when I get it on the fugu.

The fit for the homage is perfect 馃槉馃憣, however I am kind of sad that it didn't really work out for the Fugu, I wonder why Citizen folks are so stubborn 馃槓 馃槕

Thnx... i don't think it's Citizen's fault...just the aftermarket strap was designed for the Omega... i was just hopeful it would fit easily...just might need a little bit of tweaking! I haven't given up hope yet!

In other news, I'm looking for my next acquisition...anyone have any interesting finds/suggestions? Thinking sub $500?
