Arrgh, help!

One of the strap pins on my Radiomir worked its way loose whilst walking one of my kids home from school yesterday. The first I knew about it was when the watch fell off my wrist and bounced onto the ground!
Couldn't locate the pin for love nor money - thankfully though the watch didn't take too much of a bash.

Is there anywhere you can recommend to purchase a replacement stainless steel pin (I'm in the UK).

I'm kicking myself as I couldn't have tightened the screw up tightly enough - I'd certainly now recommend to everyone that they periodically check to ensure the screws are still tight...
I was initially worried about the danger of 'over-tightening' the screws... but in hidesight at least it would still be on my wrist right now :-(

Any help would be gratefully received.

I can't find a lot on the Google. I'm searching for the term 'strap pin', is that the correct terminology?

Radiomir 8 days - PAM00190

I would definately head to a dealer and get them to order you one.

I spoke to Blowers about it and they put me in touch with with Wempe (Bond St), one of the main official dealers with a licence to hold parts. The part is fairly cheap (circa £15) BUT they wouldn't post it to me... Gutting as I'm 3 hours away.

I can see their point as they don't want parts getting into the hands of counterfeiters, but that doesn't help me out of this situation.

Beware of the pins coming loose and falling out. I lost a beautiful PAM 90 after it fell off my wrist.
