3714 Strap Query

Recommended Posts

Hi

i recently received a Portuguese Chrono 3714 from Andrew

i love the watch but want to change the strap

i saw a gen dark brown iwc  strap on the bay

I contacted the seller to confirm the strap lengths of 115/75 and he said the straps measured 112/72 which I thought was a bit unusual. Maybe he can’t measure accurately?

Also the reference on the strap is 63212. I have searched high and low  but can’t find any iwc strap with this reference 

is the strap gen? If so, what should the long/ short strap lengths be with this reference number?

here is a link to the item

thanks

If you are ready to cough up the money for a gen strap, they are available here: https://watchparts24.de/Original-IWC-leather-bracelet-genuine-alligator-IWC-Big-Da-Vinci-and-other-models

If you have a deployment clasp (I guess so) I would highly recommend a gen strap as they are the only ones I have seen so far that have the correct length. The IWC clasp is made in a way that the short part of the strap has to be a lot shorter than normal, other wise the clasp will end up in an impossible location on your wrist.
