    Oris Aquis date 43mm Rubber Strap question

    Does anybody know the minimum wrist size for the rubber strap ? with it out the strap going very bulky and needing to be cut . ? Also i don't have a local AD , if it did need to be cut, I used to have a 7 inch wrist but i lost a lot of weight and wrist is very small now.

    Depending on how tight you like it, you can adjust it down to fit about a 6.25" to 6.5" wrist before needing to cut the strap.

    I wear my ProDiver Date on rubber and I didn't need to have it cut to fit my 6.75" wrist. The Aquis is a smaller watch so the strap will probably fit a smaller wrist.

    I think my wrist has gone to like 6.2 (from 7) can any jeweler cut the strap?

    Cutting the strap is very simple. There are markings on the strap where cuts shut be made. All you have to do is cut one piece at a time until you achieve the perfect fit. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself take it to your watch guy.

    I have 6.5 inch wrists and had to have mine cut. Actually other than the micro-adjustment how do you NOT have to cut it to make it smaller? and I'd say there's still another half inch smaller at least left to cut if needed.

    No need for a jeweller. The strap is indexed and all you need to cut it is a sharp blade and a straight-edge. Even if the cut isn't perfect, it will be hidden inside the buckle.

    If you're asking that question, then it means you either don't have an Aquis or yours has the wrong strap and clasp. You can make massive adjustments to the fit of the Aquis and Prodiver straps (almost 2") without ever having to touch the micro-adjust or cut the strap.

    Seriously? How does this happen (if you don't mind me asking)?
