Hi Janet,

These are simply called Spring-Bars or Lugs here in Ireland

Hi Janet:

leather strap. What are these called? 

These are spring bars. There is a nifty tool for removing them by
pressing the tiny button in (similar to a toilet paper roll holder).
I have used this tool and the only thing to watch out for is when the
spring bar is compressed and then let go, it has a tendency to
spring off into space and potentially be lost.

I hope this is what you needed,

Hi there,

These push/spring loaded bars that hold the straps are called “spring
bars”… They are made in different lengths & widths etc. They can
cime straight or curved. You need to make sure you replace with equal
size that fits the watch case-check thru a jewelry supplier/watch part
supplier… If you don’t have one- try Stuller Inc.,Lafayette, LA or
Otto-Frei/Jules Borel, Oakland Ca…

Stay Sane & Healthy!!!
Sincerely,
