All About the Buckles, Baby
At Archer Watch Straps, we’re committed to unparalleled craftsmanship and a clean, minimalist design. In the spirit of that aesthetic, we’ve curated a choice selection of crisp and stylish buckles that will tastefully complement any wristwatch in your wardrobe. As strong as they are sleek, our buckles also boast 100% compatibility with hundreds of major watch brands and thousands of models, from traditional analog and digital watches to smartwatches. And with a wide array of colors and finishes to choose from, you’ll be able to find the perfect buckle to match your watch, your strap, and your style.
Time to Buckle Down
Okay. So maybe buckles aren’t the first thing you think about when picturing that hip, new accessory to complement your watch. Hey, that’s alright. We get it. But here at Archer, we’re a little OCD about perfecting both the form and function of all of our products, right down to the smallest piece. Why? Because it all adds up to one refined and confident whole. The way we see it, finding the right buckle is a simple and effective way to put that elegant, finishing touch on your watch strap. Think of it like Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski’s rug – it’ll really tie the room together… the proverbial room, man.
A Proclivity for Versatility
At the end of the day, the little details go a long way. That’s why we’ve spent as much time honing this series as we would any of our signature straps. Our classic buckles come in five sleek and subtle tones – black, gunmetal, stainless steel, gold, and rose gold, and three handsome finishes – polished, brushed, and matte. Why so many options? Because in that cache of combinations, is a buckle that was born to suit your watch, and your strap. And if you have a few favorite timepieces in the lineup, all the better. Snag the best buckle for each, so you’ll always have the right accessory on hand. Literally. Sorry, we couldn’t help it…
Fashion Meets Fortitude
We’re of the mind that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style when choosing a durable accessory. As such, we’re proud to say that our buckles perform splendidly on both fronts. Comprised of solid, weather tested stainless steel, and layered with a vacuum PVD finish, Archer Watch Straps buckles have incredible impact strength and are reliably resistant to heat, corrosion, and abrasion. And yet, that same, solid buckle can be worn to complement the finest watch, or the most elegant strap. And hey, if you’re after a simpler, more pared-down, every-day vibe, we’ve got the buckle you’re looking for too. The bottom line is that with our wide array of finish and color combinations, you’re going to find a beautiful buckle that suits your look. And it’s going to last.
Chances are, you’ve already carefully chosen a watch and watch strap to reflect your distinct, authentic style. Why not put the cherry on top by selecting one of our premium, stainless steel buckles. With a medley of sharp colors and finishes to choose from, you’ll be sure to find the perfect piece to accentuate that wonderful wristwear. I mean, c’mon, just look at that fleet! We may as well start calling these accessories swash–buckles. Eh? Any pirate fans out there? Just us? Okay, let’s move on…
Two Tongue Widths
Alright, stick out your tongue and say “ahhhh.” Wait. Never mind. Don’t do that. But now that we’re on the subject, we wanted to point out that we offer not one, but two tongue widths for each of our beguiling buckles (that’s right, we said it – beguiling). The 3mm tongue is good for straps with wider holes, and the 2mm tongue is better for straps with narrower holes. Remember that bit about attention to detail? Just another case in point.
Getting Buckled Up
Attaching your Archer Watch Straps buckle is pretty straightforward. To attach it, just grab a pin, paperclip, or the straight end of a spring bar tool, and release the spring bar through the holes on the sides of the buckle. Then slot the spring bar into the corresponding holes on your watch strap, and through the base of the tongue. Lastly, fasten that spring bar back into the buckle holes, and bam– you’ve just attached your brand new buckle!
Don’t Forget the Fit
There’s a particular frustration to getting exactly what you want… but in the wrong size, isn’t there? It happens to the best of us. And it’s why we urge all our customers to make sure they’ve got the correct size for a particular watch strap before ordering a buckle. Luckily, this is about as easy as it gets. Using a metric ruler, simply measure the distance, in millimeters, of the width of the strap at the end that attaches to the buckle. Voila. That width corresponds directly to your proper buckle size. Now, look. This isn’t easy for us to say, but we realize that not every strap you own will be a stunning Archer Watch Strap. And you know what? It’s cool. We’re all adults here. That’s why we’ve fashioned our buckles so they’re compatible with almost any other strap on the market. With sizes of 16, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24 millimeters, we’ve got the goods to get you buckled up, no matter what.

VARIETY REFINED – We’ve got a bit of a vibe here at Archer. We like our accessories simple and elegant. Finishing touches that catch the eye, but aren’t overly flashy. So, we’ve pared our selection of premium buckles to reflect that style. With plenty of sleek, stunning colors, and three slick finishes, you can add a dash of detail to perfect your favorite watch strap and time piece combination.
COMPLETE COMPATIBLITY – Each of our buckles come in a variety of sizes, so you can easily slip them on any watch band – Archer or not – that takes a 16mm, 18mm, 19mm, 20mm, 21mm, 22mm, 23mm, or 24mm buckle. Each buckle also comes with both 2mm and 3mm wide tongues, so if your particular band has slightly smaller, or wider punched holes, you won’t have to sacrifice your style.
SIMPLE SET UP – Once you’ve chosen the buckle you like best, the hard part’s over. To attach it, just grab a pin, paperclip, or the straight end of a spring bar tool, and release the spring bar through the holes on the sides of the buckle. Then slot the spring bar into the corresponding holes on your watch strap, and you’re done. To remove it, simply reverse the process. Now, you can swap in whatever buckle you’re ready to rock next.
THE ARCHER GUARANTEE – Remember when we said our buckles won’t crack, chip, or rust? We meant it. All our products are covered by our money back guarantee. Actually, the offer stands if you’re not satisfied for any reason. We want you showing off that Archer Buckle like a new parent showing baby photos. Alright… maybe that’s too far. But we do want you to be happy with our product. If you’re not, let us set things right.
