Strap tubes were originally designed to be used in straps for Panerai Luminor watches to reduce the friction that acts on the screw bars from contact with the leather strap – the tubes are made so that the screw bars can slide through them, and are inserted into the strap at the point of attachment. When strap tubes are used, the screw bar now passes through one lug, through the tube inside the strap, and screws into the inside of the other lug. This means that the leather strap is not in contact with the screw bars directly, and because metal moving against metal results in less friction than leather moving against metal the risk of the screw bars working loose is reduced.

Fits only watches with drilled lug, like Panerai. Otherwise, the tubes are very hard to remove once installed.

Our recommendation is that strap tubes should only be used with Panerai watches, and specifically only if your Panerai comes from either the “Luminor”, “Luminor 1950”, or “Radiomir 1940” family.

If your watch uses the newer “push-release” bar system then tubes aren’t really necessary (but they won’t do any harm either), but we recommend using tubes in straps for the older style screw bar system.

Diameter: 2,2 -2,6 mm
