Aright guys, you may have seen some of these shots in a previous thread, but deal with it ;)
You know the drill, pictures from phone, words from computer
Essentially, I wanted to try metal band, but didn't feel like forking out for a combi right now. We just happened to have a black bracelet at my shop!
First up, I took out the spring-loaded piece that let you adapt the width of the band, didn't need 'em here! This reduced the size to 18mm.
Up next, marking off how much of the lug I needed to take off, quickest way was to score the lugs a little out of where the ends of the bracelet were.
Then, I used my Leatherman to file back the resin, this was maybe a five minute ordeal. Cleaner ways of doing it, but whatever, this was just a fun bit of science!
Cleaned up the lug holes, fitted the spring bars in, and BAM!
That was yesterday, now that I am at my shop, I was able to add everything back to the watch and size the bracelet. Isn't it pretty?!
Of course a wrist shot is in order. Thanks again to JohnQFord for sending me things to science with, haha. ;)
Alright, suppose I should get back to work or something :P
Have a great day everyone!
