I just can’t imagine they’re shipping bracelets that top out at 7.25”

I'd email them the picture showing all the links and they will soon know if there should be more if it was a full-length bracelet.

I feel out of my depth reading some of these in depth reviews but on the plus side, I'm going to save a fortune now that I can cancel my Watches for Dummies subscription. Just starting out my collection and it's great to be learning and checking out all these reviews. :thumbup:

The update here is that customer support is issuing me a couple more links. They seem pretty baffled about how it happened, but they were pleasant and accommodating as I’ve experienced a few times already from this company.

I can confirm that this isn't the case. I resize all of my bracelets myself. When I get a watch from CW I need to remove at least 2-3 links for a perfect fit. So, I would say they are over 8" easy.

I had my C65 GMT bracelet that I got during the Janusry sale sized by CW. I expected them to size it "in the middle" with the brilliant quick sizing they have in the clasp. But they sized it way too tight... oh well.
They did add the extra links
