Ventura V-Tec Alpha bracelet clasp

Post13 Mar 2016, 19:07

After about ten years of daily wear the clasp on my Alpha finally gave out last night as I was taking the watch off :cry:

Before I contact Ventura, I don't suppose anyone here has a clasp? I have a worrying feeling I'm going to have to buy a complete bracelet which won't be cheap.

Well Ventura (preciluxe) came through, they are supplying me with a replacement clasp for 80 euro. I also needed a ceramic alarm plate as the last time I changed the battery I discovered mine had disintegrated, they tried to tell me that they couldn't sell me this part and I would need to send the watch to them for a technician to fit it, luckily I managed to convince them that I know what I'm doing and can fit it myself, so they're supplying me with this too, for around 20 euro :eek:

You could use any piezo disk of similar size, either salvaged from an old digital or purchased online for a few cents.

I did think that but didn't want to take any chances with it.
