Maybe your watch band is starting to get to be too small for your wrist, but you don’t have any links that you can use to make it longer. Or maybe your watch still fits your wrist but because of arthritis the band is now too small to fit over your hand and still fit your wrist the way you want it to. Never fear, you can use any one of the three buckle extenders that Esslinger.com carries to make your watch band a little longer overall, or just make it longer when you need to take it on and off. Check out the buckle extenders below to find out which one is right for you and learn how to install it onto your watch band.
