    Bracelet alteration omega

    Hi there, I have recently purchased a 3572.50 Omega moonwatch and need the bracelet altering to fit my wrist, where do you guys recommend me getting this done that is a good reliable company to carry out this work, I just don't want some local watch repair guy who ends up scratching it,
    Thanks

    Have the exact same watch (great choice by the way), and did it myself.

    Any jeweller will likely do it for you, its a very simple task and it is actually hard to scratch anything if you know what you're doing.

    It's easy enough to do it yourself.

    Don't even need to click the link to know that's Archie. It's really not as hard as he makes it out, as long as you have the equipment.

    Hi Alan, if that's Leeds in the UK I'd pop into the Omega boutique on Commercial St in the city centre. They should adjust the bracelet free of charge.

    It's pretty easy to do yourself with the pin pusher tool, but if you take it to a shop do not go to a mall kiosk. They play fast and loose in those joints!

    Any decent jewelry store or watch repair place should be able to do it fine. I'll echo the sentiment that you should avoid mall shops; I haven't had good experiences with those.

    It's also easy to do yourself. All you need is a spring bar tool and a pin pusher. If you get a pin pusher, try to get one with extra long pushers; the omega pins are hard to get out with a normal length pusher.

    Here's where I got my spring bar and pin tool from.
