Did you know that a lot of people don't know how to choose the right Seiko watch in terms of size? Well, that's because sizing your Seiko watch requires an understanding of the anatomy of a Seiko watch. There are many factors determining whether or not Seiko watches fit you well, and so we'll be discussing those in today's article.
A perfect watch is like a never-ending quest. You will always be looking for it, and you will always try different sizes to find the best fit. Having the right Seiko watch that truly fits you is important. This is why professionals will tell you that the Seiko watchband must be adjustable. Buying SEIKO Watches that claim they adjust to your wrist but only do so by a few millimetres will not serve you well. You might end up with a watch that doesn't fit perfectly on your wrist or one that's too tight or too loose so getting the right Seiko watch band size means everything when it comes to fit.
How To Size Your Seiko Watch
Congratulations on your new Seiko watch. Now it's time to size the band so that it fits your wrist perfectly. This is a simple process that can be done in just a few minutes.
1. Tools You Will Need
There are several tools you will need to help you size your watch. A spring bar tool is the most important, as these tools allow you to remove and replace the spring bars without damaging them. Spring bars are small metal rods that hold the watch band together. They keep the pieces of the watch band in place and securely attached to the watch itself. You will also need a set of microfiber cloths, a hand towel or other soft cloth and a cotton swab for cleaning and polishing your watch after you have sized it.
2. Sizing Your Watch Band
Start by placing a hand towel or similar soft cloth over your work area. This will protect your watch from damage while you are working on it. Remove any links from your band as needed using the spring bar tool and place them in a safe spot so they can be reattached later if necessary. If you don't want them, set them aside for future use or discard them.
3 Things about Sizing Your Seiko Watch You May Not Know
If you're looking for a comfortable fit for your Seiko watch, it's important that you're aware of a few things about the sizing process. You don't want to get your watch resized only to find out that it doesn't fit comfortably or that it's too loose.
To help make sure this doesn't happen, let's look at three things you may not know about sizing your Seiko watch.
1. The Clasp is Part of the Size
The clasp is an important part of how your watch fits on your wrist. When sizing the watch, make sure to leave enough room for the clasp. This is especially true if you have a three-fold clasp as they are larger than normal clasps.
2. Know Your Wrist Size
The size of your wrist can change depending on what time of day it is, how warm or cold it is, and other factors such as hydration and diet. To ensure you get the best fit possible for your watch, measure your wrist before having it sized. Try measuring it in different situations to see if there are any significant changes in size throughout the day and week. Make sure to tell the jeweller who is sizing your Seiko watch about these changes in size so that they can factor in the fashion.
3. Always Have a Professional Size Your Watch Band
If you buy the wrong-sized band for your Seiko, you'll likely just end up having to return it for one that fits your wrist better. However, if you buy a brand that's too big, it can be easily sized down by a professional jeweller. A professional jeweler will take out as many links as needed to make sure the band fits around your wrist without being too snug or too loose.
