New Moonglow today (nice) -- is there an official set of instructions (video?) on how to adjust the Milanese strap - so I don't just poke around with sharp pointing things and scratch it!?

Seems not. They all seem to refer to a different kind than the one used by CW - this has links that need removing I think, by the look of it. As I said, I can hack around but thought CW might have a how-to guide or reference.

I'm fairly sure the CW mesh is produced by Staib - if that helps.

If it is type with links attached to the clasp (for adjustment) I guess they work in the same way as standard bracelet links - although I'm not sure if they use push pins or screw-in pins...

^^^^ Yep they are Staib (or certainly were when CW first started using them). Split push pins IIRC, with an arrow indicating the direction to push in.

Ohhhhh a Moonglow! I'm becoming obsessed with this one and it'll be my next CW! Post pictures if you get a chance. :wave:

Apologies, I see it is detachable links either side of the clasp and not a flip clasp/move up and down milanese :oops:

Interestingly, A Blog to Watch mentioned that even with all the links removed, it was still too big for his 6.5" wrist :?
