I too own the same exact model (188.8.131.52.01.001 purchased in 2015, dont know what gen screws i have on it) & i have been having a hell of a time trying to get the exact info needed in order to get a clasp for my PO (see pic below-it's my wife's hand lol). My local AD here is willing to sell me the clasp, but says that if i order the wrong one-NO REFUNDS!
Anyway, what i wanted to ask was if, i would need any extra links to attach the clasp (i haven't decided if i should get the 117STZ001154 or the 117STZ001159), or would either be a simple straight swap? Could you please enlighten me-many thanks in advance.

Just finished. Very happy with the result on my 42 2500 po. This is the one with the diver extension, the old one looks tiny next to the new.

Have anyone ever install this adjustable clasp on aqua terra new 8900 41 mm?
It has slightly flat and slimmer links compared to aqua terra 8500 so I don't know if it will still fit.
I struggle with the butterfly clasp , the butterfly clasp is too long for my wrist , I wonder why omega never test the watch for consumer with small wrists.
So only clasp like those in planet ocean, seamaster diver could fit my small wrist better.
And this youtube video
I plan to do all this when I finally get an AT.
Would be curious from those who have done it what the total cost of the parts were.
Omega Seamaster Professional 2254.50
Hamilton Jazzmaster Day/Date
I thought I would share my experience in sourcing and installing the adjustable clasp on my 2264 Seamaster in the hope that it might help others if they decide to go this route. This went on the quartz 2264 sword hands Seamaster. The bracelet says "930" up by the lugs and I believe it is referred to as the "Speedy" bracelet, it is not the "Bond" version/. This one is the 3 piece brushed with the little polished middle sections. I suck at computers, so forgive the lack of photo documentation.
I went to two Omega AD's here in town, the first flat out refused to order me any parts not for my specific model. The second had no issues whatsoever, and happily ordered the following;
117STZ001154- This is the middle of the road clasp, not the one with a dive extension and not the very short one
118ST1589- These are the two new end links, and they come with only two screws and one "spacer" which goes in between the screws. You will need to order 4 more screws and two more of the spacers. These did not come in bags marked with a part number, so unfortunately, I don't know what those are.......
All in it was less than $200, which I considered to be fair, especially since just the clasp itself is $250 on Amazon.
Took a few weeks to come in.......When I went to pick them up, the manager offered to install it for free since he had heard about it, but hadn't actually done it. I know now that you need 4 of the "spacers" that fit between the links which the screws tighten up against, but only had the two. He had his jeweler cut the old "collars" down to that size and it worked great, so that is an option if you don't have the specific parts. He didn't use any Loctite, which I questioned him about, and he claimed it wasn't needed...... Thoughts on that one?
I was grateful to not have to try and ham fist it myself, and when asked to donate to the stores Holiday charity, I gladly did so. Good experience at the AD and they earned my business.
I don't believe I will ever own another watch whose bracelet option doesn't have some sort of on the fly micro adjustments.
