Then I found this thread and didn't realize the speedy pro bracelet had a micro adjustment. Not much of one, just one extra hole.
    I'm sure glad did a search on this forum. I added a link and added just to the inner micro adjustment hole. Perfect fit! And if you are OCD like me, the clasp is perfectly centered on my wrist now.
    Please send a link to the seller. There's only one on there now and its listing both 20mm and 18mm sizes in the same auction.

    I never bought a half link. I just added a link and used the one micro adjustment hole.

    I'm looking for the half link compatible with the 1998, and that's not available anymore. Feeling your pain... :(

    Some good news: I noticed this week that our favourite US-based watch parts company is showing the 115ST1610 half-link for 1610/1612/1998 bracelets as once again available. However, there might be an even better solution, thanks to WUS expertise I read about here: Tutorial: Adding a half link to a Speemaster 1998 bracelet - Page 2

    Like many of us, I can be a real Goldilocks about bracelet sizing ("too tight...too loose...just right!"). I had the same problem with my 1998 bracelet, and when Omega wasn't supplying (making?) the half-link, I thought I was out of luck. However, thanks to the above thread, I found out that the 1620 Clasp Attaching Link at 12, OME-118ST162012, does indeed fit the 1998 bracelet, and is a great solution. For my wrist, it's a perfect fit instead of a half-link, and it's actually a bit neater and more integral looking, since it just stretches out the existing clasp attaching link a little bit, rather than tacking on a link that doesn't match any of the others. (The bad news is that I can't find them on the same watch parts seller's site this week, so we might be back to using the half-link anyway...plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose!"

    So I gather still no half links? I guess mine fits OK with the one micro adjustment on the clasp but still a bit lose. I decided to look on ebay and buy an older style steel bracelet for my speedy. Style of the links looks the same other than the clasp but it looks like it'll be more adjustable and I kind of like the etched in Omega emblem better.

    My new Speedy Pro doesn't fit at all with the new bracelet. I have resorted to different leather straps from Bandrbands, Heuerville and the Strap Smith.

    Half link for the new speedmaster professional

    I really need a half link for the new screw/pin bracelet. Right now it's either very loose or too tight.
