    It’s deffo not normal. If it was gold I’d zip it straight back but steel is a whole lot stronger so I don’t think it will show any wear for many a year.

    Look, fellas, “normal” is whatever they designed it to be. If you attached a thin-wall tube to the end of a mesh bracelet, as is very commonly the case, it wouldn’t be any thicker than what I’m seeking here.

    I'm remembering end pieces that incorporated a small curved piece of sheet metal to hold the spring bar. Never had an end piece fail. In comparison the spring bar is far weaker. Yes it is not centered on that Hammy and was meant to be. Look at the off center spring bar holes found in many lugs. Including the very popular Hamilton Khaki no-date handwind.
