    Anyone ever had their Omega bracelet clasp fail?

    I have a Speedy Pro and I always wonder if the single attachment point on the clasp is strong enough to hold the watch on over the long-term. I'd hate to see this watch nail the pavement due to a clasp failure. Purely curious. Thanks!

    I've got 5 Omega watches on bracelets incluidng one I have owned since 1971. No failures. A spring bar is far more likely to give way from either sudden stress or acculumated moisture and acidic sweat.

    Good to know. Ever change your spring bars periodically?

    I have a SMP and have been most disappointed by the clasp. I've already brought it back and was told everything was fine. On multiple occasions since first purchasing it, it's opened up on me. Luckily, it's never dropped from my wrist, but I have to say I expected more from the clasp. Lately it's been ok, but I can't say that I trust it 100%. I've noticed it the most problematic if it's humid out. The issue doesn't appear to be due to the bracelet being too tight, since there is some slack in the bracelet, and I have other watches that fit tighter without any issue with the clasp. Just my own experience, for what it's worth.

    Yeah, this is what I'm worried about. Quite frankly, I am surprised that they don't have a safety on them for redundancy.

    Nope. Mine's from 2000 and the clasp works perfectly.

    I've never had issues with any of mine, but agree that it would be comforting to have the extra security of the folding metal piece that I have on my Seiko's

    I had clasp pop out couple of times on SMP.

    I guess the watch was a bit tight and when I flexed my wrist, that is when it happened.

    That said, adjusting SMP is pain unless you have extra long bracelet pin remover.

    Must be a Canadian thing (hehe).

    I am more careful if my wrist flexes or slightly expands when it's hot out. However, it's also happened when I lightly shake my wrist (pronate and supinate), so I suspect the clasp can be temperamental. I have to keep playing with it until it locks securely, and then it seems relatively safe. I test it by giving it a little tug on the clasp. If it holds, I'm generally ok. Now, every time I wear it, I always gently pull at the clasp to check it.
