    Re: What Omega watches have people used adjustable clasp 117STZ001154 on?

    The clasp for the PO435 finally arrived: 117STZ001159 (US retail is $117). Expect this clasp to replace the 1154 clasp, since the older clasp did not have the foldout divesuit extension. And I would expect to see the 117STZ004666 clasp start showing up on the Speedy models at some point (which means you can swap them out for the 1159 or 1154 if you want more than 4mm of extension).

    The 1159 is quite a bit longer than the 4666 ... more than 9mm longer. However, the 1159 is the first clasp since before the Gen2 POs came out that has most of the tines fold up inside the clasp (although the 1154 likely does this as well), and you can feel it when wearing the clasp. Although larger and heavier than the 4666, the 1159 clasp wears more comfortably.

    By crafting the foldout extension within the ratcheting extension, you now have about 10mm of extension with the pushbutton, and a total extension of about 33mm when the clasp is fully extended. That will fit over a 5-6mm suit with no problem.

    I've included a couple of photos showing the 1159 with the 4666:

    117STZ001154

    I have one of these available if anyone is looking for one. They are tough to find.

    NEW with plastic on it.

    Not really that tough to find … some OBs actually have them in stock. Yes, the 1159 is taking a few weeks to ship, but the 1154s are usually available within a week or so.

    BTW, this is not a For Sale forum. Please go to the proper FS forum to post your clasp for sale.

    Re: What Omega watches have people used adjustable clasp 117STZ001154 on?

    Good evening everyone! I will try to not to make this post too long since I'm a newbie here to the forum. I have decided to buy a new watch, which will be my first luxury watch. I truly appreciate traditional/vintage menswear - I wear a straight-edge bow tie everyday - so I've finally decided that my new watch will be a vintage Omega Seamaster Cosmic 2000 (sorry, can't post pics because I'm so new!!!). The one thing that I started to research before buying the watch is whether or not I could swap the old-school clasp for a newer, more secure clasp (since I've had poor experiences with the type of clasp that is original to the SMC2K). And after doing some Googling, I found this site and this AWESOME post!!! So my question is, has anyone installed this clasp onto such a vintage watch/bracelet? I would definitely like to know before I purchase the watch, as this will be something that I want to do immediately after receipt of the watch. If any of you think it's doable, please do advise so I can at least make the best decision going forward. Even if I could not use the clasp mentioned in this thread (117STZ001154) I would be most certainly open to using another one such as the non-adjustable version of the 117STZ001154, or an older, more secure clasp from someone who's upgraded to the 117STZ001154 (given they will sell me their old clasp ). l Thank you all and I look forward to any responses!

    Omega went through its Gerald Genta era (as did a lot of other upscale watch companies). I owned one of the better examples - the Seamaster 120 Plongeur DeLuxe. The Cosmic was another excellent example of at least a Genta-esque design. But there really is no connection between those watches and modern Omegas. The odds of getting a current clasp to work on a vintage watch is pretty slight. And, because Genta's designs almost always featured an integrated bracelet, you can't swap it with a modern bracelet either. Sorry.

    There are quite a few here who are into both vintage and modern. But, for a host of reasons, parts of the two don't mix well. You should decide what you like most in a first watch. If it's vintage, accept the limitations of a watch that will be decades old when you acquire it. If you aren't comfortable with that, then vintage might not be for you. And, in that case, you can get some pretty good deals on gently used current models on the WUS FS forum.

    Eventually you might have a collection with watches from several eras, including the most current. By then you'll realize the futility of trying to turn a vintage watch into what is charitably referred to here as a "frankenwatch."

    iinsic, thank you so much for your insight and advice! I figured I'd may be cornered by my vintage choice, and it seems as though that is the case. I will most certainly look at a few more models and narrow it down from there. I am so happy to have found this forum as you guys are crazy knowledgable and kindhearted to boot! Thanks so much!

    This does work, the links that are attached to the clasp need to be put on the AT bracelet. My best friend did this and posted pictures a while back.
