    Big Hands Small Wrist

    Not sure if this was posted before but today I removed 1/2 link off my citizen so it would be slight more snug on my wrist. Being a better fit where I could get a finger in the band, I found it very difficult to slide the watch over my hand... it was like trying to get out of handcuffs... If I add the half link it slides over just right but then too loose on the (7 in) wrist. Any advice?

    Is this a common experience for you?

    I can't think of a solution off-hand, other than some sort of clasp extension. Perhaps a pic of the bracelet would help?

    Maybe try moving the pin on the bracelet clasp/lock/underwristunion/whereuputyourthumbtoclosethedeployment or whatever that part is called to another hole... :S

    Maybe a stupid answer but most of the time this kind of answers work :D

    Does this bracelet have a micro-adjuster near the clasp? That would be key.

    Also, depending on where you're from, it might just be the weather. Heat can make your limbs swell a bit.

    There are some clasps where they have a smaller clasp for people with bigger hands with smaller wrists. Usually it's located on the opposite side of the fold clasp and facing inward.
    And here's this one by Omega. Omega - Does the Omega clasp need to be updated?

    More comfortable to wear a watch loose than tight. You'll get use to it if you can't find a better solution.
