    The PO tang attaches to the saddle link with a removable screw/pin. The GM butterfly tang does not (it appears to be a factory-fixed pin). That's why the whole clasp complex on the GM has to come out. The saddle links from a PO could be shaved on the inside of the outer links, or the center link on the GM could be shaved down (or a little of both) to get the parts to fit together. However, absent the skills of an expert working with small parts on a lathe, it's going to look rather Rube Goldberg.

    It would be so much easier if Omega would simply retrofit the 4666 clasp to the GM ... or add a couple ⅔ links to the bracelet, like the AT.

    For sure. I suspect that GM butterfly is attached with a spring bar but since i no longer have one can't be sure.

    Assuming the GM uses the same butterfly found on the AT (and I can't imagine why they'd use a different clasp), it is attached using a fixed friction pin on each end of the clasp. My guess is that one would nearly destroy the clasp trying to separate the tang from the bracelet.

    Im sure it is same design but slightly different in size. But yes friction pin would be impossible. Will look at them when i see in couple of weeks. Shows difference in a little brain power between Eolex and Omega.

    Consider the humble butterfly used on JLC's Master Control line of bracelets (and likely on its other bracelets for Reverso, et al): It has a central post around which both sides of the butterfly lock into place. But each half of the butterfly has a 4mm adjustment almost identical to Rolex's Easylink (in this photo, both extensions are open). This gives you the option of expanding or contracting your bracelet by 4mm or 8mm, as needed.

    The 39mm (by 8.9mm thick) Master Control Automatic retails for about 16% more than a stainless 39mm (and more than 3mm thicker) GM, but both are available for a lot less on the grey market. Which would I rather have? That's a no brainer.

    [iurl="https://forums.watchuseek.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=11432562&d=1491410809"][/iurl]

    I used the clasp links (2 x 0018ST1589) from a 2nd hand 8500 bracelet to attach to the adjustable clasp to my 2500 bracelet.

    As AD & OB forbidden to sell/fit to 2500 PO in UK & Hong Kong, I found a parts supplier in UK with adjustable clasps, & after a 6-month search for the other bits I gave up hunting any longer and bought a 2nd-hand 8500 bracelet on here.

    Arrived Wednesday afternoon, fitted it all together that night. Took about 90 minutes overall (...while simultaneously baking & eating a pizza!).

    A tad fiddly, but not as tricky as I'd expected.

    Works really well!
    It fits perfectly, & adjustability 'on the fly' will be much more comfortable around town when 35ºC+ and 98% humidity outside, especially when most buidings, cafés etc are air-conditioned down to arctic levels.
    Who is the UK parts supplier you found?
