Every time I check this forum, someone is posting they lost/need screws for their MM20. Is it a design flaw? So many people can't be that careless...can they?

It's a post/tube that has a TINY LITTLE screw that goes in the other end. It is literally 1mm x 2mm. It's like doing micro-surgery & if you drop it on a carpet, forget about it!

... it is a question of how often do I change straps and do I use the TUBE!

Actually the tubes that came in both MM20 straps have to be used in every strap you will attach to the watch.
The tube reduces the friction between metal and leather (metall screw in metall tube), if you don´t use the tube you have metal on leather and the screws get loose.

Hope this expains it well.-

used longer screws to make strap changes as painless as possible. What's the purpose of using screws that are an eighth of an inch long? It's annoying!

Like Panerai did. Would have been easier! I don't change straps very often on my MM20 because of this.
