    Re: The "Official" Tuna Thread

    Here is my daily wearer I wear 90% of the time. The crystal is pretty scratched and I am in the process of ordering a sapphire crystal to replace/upgrade it. One of only things I did not like about the watch was the bracelet, what drove me nuts is the taper from 22mm to 18mm, to me (this is only my opinion) I felt it should have been a 22mm to 20mm taper or no taper at all. The problem is (again only for me), anything aftermarket is a pretty big downgrade since it comes with a pretty nice adjustable clasp. In my mind, if I replaced the bracelet with another one that did not taper, I had to also have an adjustable clasp to lessen the downgrade I was doing to satisfy my need to have a non-tapered bracelet. Below is my solution...

    The bracelet I have a Strapcode (or Tungchoy) Super Engineer. It is thick, heavy and feels like a pretty quality bracelet.

    I bought it with the clasp that opens from both sides, I forgot what it was called. In reality, that clasp was junk. After about a week, it started to open up when I pushed my kid on a swing. For some reason it must have been defective because it was designed to open with both buttons pushed but it opened when the underside of my wrist contacted one button. I replaced with a a regular clasp, I think they sent it to me free of charge. I used that setup for about a year but having a non-adjustable clasp continued to bother me, must be an OCD thing.

    About a month ago, I was looking on the sale corner under straps and bracelets and saw a bracelet made by Hexa someone had posted for sale. It looked like a Super Engineer, was a non-tapered 22mm and it had an adjustable clasp and straight ends. I googled Hexa watches and noticed they sell the bracelet separately. I quickly ordered one and had it a few days later. The problem was, it used a 1.5mm spring bar and being as anal as I can be, I did not want to put such a small spring bar on my Tuna. I figured I would return it and figure something else out. But now, I had an adjustable clasp bracelet I didn't want to use but the clasp was really nice.

    I took the bracelet apart and discovered that the link spacing was identical to the Super Engineer. But, in order to use it, I had to use a link from the Hexa and one bracelet screw. I tried it. It was nice having an adjustable clasp again but it looked funny with the hexa link since the link was a lot thinner than the Super Engineer links. I continued to look at my options but no matter what I had to use at least one link from the Hexa clasp since it doesn't use the 22mm end standard clasps use at the clasp. I then continued to think about removing the one Hexa link that drove me nuts, I figured if I could disassemble one spare Super Engineer link and press it onto the Hexa link on the clasp, I would be much happier. Here are some pics...

    The link that attaches to the Hexa is thinner but it is needed to make the adaptation. The benefit of having a smaller wrist is having a lot of extra links. I took one and literally destroyed it to see how the Super Engineer link is put together. It is pressed together with a small splined stainless steel shaft that is pressed in to the end links. So, my next challenge was to take one apart without bending the shaft so I could put it back together in the Hexa clasp link. With an aluminum soft jawed vice, a small punch and hammer got one link apart without bending the small shaft. I fit it into the Hexa link and pressed it back together with pliers with tape around the jaws. After that, it was as simple as adjusting the bracelet. Here is a completed pic.
