Tang buckles are exclusively found in watches that don’t have stainless steel bracelets. To know if your watch comes with a tang buckle, take a look at its strap. There should be multiple holes in it. The pin on the buckle moves into them, securing your watch. No doubt about it, tang buckles are classic and good-looking.
Usually, the buckles are made from metal. However, you’ll see plastic ones on cheaper watches, usually for children.
As there are so many holes for you to hook its pin into, the clasp is very adjustable. They’re great for all kinds of wrist sizes.
Compared to Velcro straps, fitting the pins into place takes extra effort. If you’ve never worn a tang buckle watch before, finding the right hole to perfectly fit the pin into is trial-and-error.
To slide your strap through a tang clasp, you’ll notice hoops on its strap. You’ll be passing the strap through them. If you’re too rough with the hoops, they’ll eventually fall off. By continuously bending the strap, you’re going to crease it too. Who’d want that?
