Buying a Buckle Screw?

Does anyone know if it's possible to find buckle screws available for sale (I'd prefer OEM) anywhere? No luck at the boutiques I've been to, as they've told me they would only sell the full buckle.

What's interesting is that this seems like an issue that should be relatively common, as it's in the essence of PAMs to regularly change out straps (and, consequently, buckles), so wear and tear is only a matter of time.

It doesn't seem reasonable to have to buy another (expensive) buckle just because the screw was damaged...

I feel your pain. I changed buckles so many times my screw is hammered. I asked the same thing. They could make a killing selling these and strap changing tool. AP charged me 15 dollars a screw to replace my screws that hold my strap for my Roo and I gladly paid it. It's what its

Its not OEM but I recently purchased some brushed buckles from Greg Stevens Design and they appear to be very high quality. only rec'd recently so can't confirm how they actually wear but they fit the straps very well, if not slightly large for the end of the strap by a half mm or so. Imagine one of his screws would fit the OEM buckle but haven't tried it

I have bought numerous after-market buckles but, the screws weren’t compatible with the panerai oem. Either the head was too large or small or the threads weren’t the same...
