    Took me a while , I tried the spare screws as well but came to the conclusion you just have to apply a bit of pressure then the tool will fit into the screw eventually and turn .

    The drivers fit, it's just an extremely tight fit.

    Got my grey SD42. Mathematically it should be a decent fit but the lugs are so chunky that it wears a lot bigger than the numbers would indicate. Now ordered a 40mm same watch to give it a try and see which is better in this case.

    Didnt bother resizing the bracelet, just took it off and this grey ostrich on instead

    Looks great. Look forward to seeing a side by side with the 40mm.

    Here's mine received for Christmas 42mm blue , was away in Ireland and just back today . Glad I painfully sized the bracelet (and re-fitted it ) before we flew back as airport security took my hex screwdriver tool , they said you can't take that in your hand luggage and confiscated it , so will have to mail Helson to buy another !
    Really love this watch and especially the new clasp which is a massive improvement over the one on the 40mm I had previously.

    After some heard thinning I finally got one of my grail watches, the screws are a pain in the a$$, never had this much trouble sizing a watch.

    Nice choice. This is the same watch I got during their Christmas sale. It's built like a tank. Congrats.
