New bracelet, mixed feelings

Post by newatchbuyer »

I've just got one of the new C60 bracelets, very impressed initially, particularly with the greater degree of adjustment.

Links can be taken out as before but the clasp itself is adjustable over about 7mm in 5 steps, so you should be able to fine tune the fit.

However the clasp will only allow three of the 5 step holes to be used before the folded clasp won't close ?

Is this how it was intended and the 5 step holes just for show ?

Anyone else had a play with one ?

Interesting, that perfectly summarises the problem I have, but doesn't solve it.

Anyway on the positive side, I can now swim without trashing the leather strap the watch came with

Thanks for the link

Never had to adjust mine that way so I don't know. mine's on the second hole by default. I prefer it to be as close to the end as possible and I prefer a loose fit anyway. My wrist will be swelled up in the morning so a loose fit normally is perfect.
