    Anybody know what the springbar to springbar size is for the Carrera Calibre 360 modelcode CV5040.FC8160, mine is currently at TH for a complete service but want to order a velcro strap made to order in the meantime. Can't seem to find it on www.

    Tnx but I'm looking for the measurements lengthwise to get a custom velcro strap with keepers. Should be 41mm case size plus spacing to the bars. I reckon it is same for all Carrera's? Here's some pics of my speedy with such a strap.:cool:

    Only the 50th anniversary one, has you sir have quite a collection I recon.

    I believe the case size and dimensions would be the same for any 41mm Carrera. I don't have a 41mm version so I cant help you there, but I am sure someone can.

    Not sure I would be putting a velcro strap on such a classy piece as the Calibre 360. Your watch though ;).

    Alligator strap is a b*tch when it's summer and I'm keeping cost in mind having it last longer.

    Is it a WG case?

    OK, you wouldn't want to be putting the TAG Heuer H-link stainless steel bracelet on it then.

    Not really my cup of tea to have this one on steel, for the speedy it is a better combo.

    Plus the S/S could possibly cause wear on the WG since the gold is much softer.

    Have you had a look at the Hirsch range of straps? They do quite few different types but the rubber backed, such as the Robby, work well in a hot, humid summer

    I'm really digging the gasgasbones Velcro strap on my Speedy and he also has a blue option at just 30£ so for me a no brainer but your input is much appreciated.
