    How to adjust Constellation TT bracelet?

    So my wife now has a new Omega Constellation in stainless and gold (ref. no. 123.20.35.20.02.006), with the opaline guilloche dial. I've tested the timing, and it gains about 1spd. Now I have to adjust it to her tiny wrist.

    At first, I thought it would adjust like the stainless-and-gold Rado Diastar I had years ago, with the spring bar holding on the 18k gold "saddles," and then sliding out when the saddles were removed, separating the two links. But it does not appear to be that way (or I'm being too timid in handling it).

    Anyone here experienced in adjusting this bracelet, and willing to help out (photos greatly appreciated)?

    And, since I'm asking for photos, here a Q&D of the new acquisition:

    Thanks! Glad to know you're still part of the old "gang."

    Omega had fantastic clasps when Rolex had dime-store junk (an Invicta clasp was nicer). But Omega always had the queerest bracelet adjustments, for more than 30 years, in my experience. Even the new cap-screws-and-pin system is a PITA compared to Rolex's wonderful screwed pins. Perhaps I'll DM Al to see if he can advise me.

    This model should have a 1656/981 bracelet, and of so it's standard pins and tubes.

    You mean like the old SMPs and POs? Would it help if you had the S/N to know precisely?

    Yes, that bracelet is the old style pins and tubes. Unless you have a different bracelet...

    Well, at least I always found them fairly easy to size. I guess the 18k saddles are actually somehow attached to the link rather than removable.

    Thanks so much for clueing me in on this! I saw the arrows on the underside, but there was no way I was going to put a pin pusher on it until I was certain.
