    OCD over bracelet sizing

    I recently acquired a Sinn 556i and sized the bracelet to fit my 6.75" wrist. It feels perfect with two links on each side and the micro adjustment all the way in. I tried one less on the 6 with the adjustment all the way out and it was too tight. Now the issue I'm having, as ridiculous as it sounds, is I'm wondering if it looks off, with the clasp sitting the way it does. If I move a link to the 12, it makes it 3 at 12 and 1 at 6, which also bothers me. Opinions? Or just shut up and wear it.

    I wouldn't care how it looks, only how it feels.

    Usually, you would have more links on the 12 side just because of how a watch tends to sit on your wrist. That only really applied if you have an odd number of links though.

    It really is what works best for you, though I would expect the 2 and 2 is probably going to be the winner.

    As long as the watch is sitting fine on the wrist I don't understand the problem.

    From those pictures, it looks fine. That's about as well balanced as a clasp can be.

    I must be missing something too, as it looks fine to me.

    If you think that's off you should see the clasp on my BFK (on second thoughts it's perhaps best kept to myself) BUT the head of the watch sits as it should and is comfy to wear.

    Your wrist expands and shrinks. 'OCD' and 'bracelet' (without micro-adjustment) do not mix well.

    Re: OCD over bracelet sizing

    OCD and bracelet sizing can be trouble. Let it go before it pulls you down the rabbit hole.

    A "friend" started obsessing like that, next thing we knew he was trimming his wrist hair each morning for the "perfect" fit. That eventually led to cellophane wraps and Preparation h. When he realized he had overcompensated and his wrist was too small, he had Botox injections to fatten it back up a bit. Now he's consulting with specialists about having a custom "pump" surgically placed in his wrist....

    True story. Don't be "that guy". The watch looks fine. Enjoy.
