So my bespoke strap just arrived and my QR springbars fit perfectly
I help customers choose bespoke straps and fit them for a living and I was very confident that I had shaped the curve correctly that they’d fit just fine so I’m not sure why J Rousseau would even say that!

Great but have you tried it on your Journe watch?
JR does provide curved spring bar but they claim that they are not able to curve the spring bar the way Journe's does so it doesn't fit quite correctly on Journe's watches. That's what they told me when I was in their NYC store.
The Jean Rousseau NYC boutique manager told me that FPJ supplies OEM QR curved spring bars but they are for FPJ boutique orders only - they are not available to the public. The NYC boutique has had no problem supplying me with (non-QR) springbars that fit...
