20mm Tiber leather strap taper width question

Post by Mike2795647 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 6:54 pm

Hiya all,

As per the title, I’ve just bough a Tiber Leather watch strap in 20mm

Does anyone know what it tapers to? I assume 18mm or 16mm but keen to know.

Cheers

CW straps, routinely, taper by 2mm

22mm to 20mm

20mm to 18mm

The exception is the C2 / C20 strap and possibly the 24mm C15 Henley.

There are some other exceptions. Anyone?

Thanks and I’m hoping for the 2mm taper reduction. Looking to fit the strap to my Tudor with my 18mm deployant clasp

Not sure on taper, but it’s quite a thick strap isn’t it? Even if it’s the correct width will it fit into the deployant clasp? Straps made for deployants usually taper down (in thickness) to be reasonably thin at the clasp.
