O Ring Stopper for Citizen Brycen?
on: May 06, 2023, 02:13:19 AM
  Bought a Citizen Eco Drive Brycen not long ago, and had ordered a Nemesis wide watchband for it. The look was terrific. Do not recall having an issue with the Tachymeter going off on its own. I was reviewing the watchband here, and edited a few times,

  While the Nemesis watchband looked terrific, it was when the roller bar went missing :think: it surprised me that I did not lose the watch. While I replaced that cheap dumb tin roller bar with some scrap steel tubing, the buckle itself felt cheap. It moved apart quite easily putting the steel tube in as a replacement roller bar.
  Liked the band as it protected the buttons when I was working/wearing the watch, and have ordered a custom band from Etsy (Vietnam vendor).

  Went to using a Zulu watchband but the tachymeter's button get pressed far too easily. Slipped the smallest O ring I could find at Home Depot over the button, yet sadly it is not tight enough to stop the button from being activated. Was wondering if anyone happened to find a small enough O ring that can stop inadvertent button presses? If so, what size did you use?

  Am trying to ween myself off the Apple iWatch Series 6, and get back to having a real watch. For now the eco drive is on the left wrist, and the Apple watch on the right hand. Makes no sense wearing two watches on the same arm, but I thought about it a few times.  :rofl:

There isn't a quick fix for that, you could try keyboard o rings (Amazon) or wear it further away from the wrist. The German Bund style may work better with the cover on it?
