    Question about resizing Oris 65 bracelet

    So finally pulled the trigger on a Divers Sixty-Five with bracelet.

    Stupid question... but this is the first bracelet I've owned that doesn't have pin arrows.

    How do you size it?

    I don't have one, so I cannot guaranty this is 100% accurate. But some of the bracelets use a sleeved pin arrangement. The middle link has a sleeve that provides the friction to hold the pin. You can push the pin out either direction. But be very careful - you do not want to lose that little sleeve that is in the middle link. Make sure the sleeve stays in there. I clear off my work area before I start - that way if the sleeve does fall out, it's pretty easy to find.

    The other type of link has screws. You can tell by looking at the end of the pin / screw to see if it has a slot for a screwdriver head.

    Others that actually have this watch will chime in and give you a definitive answer.

    Thank you!

    Yes, was a pin and sleeve. After deciding to just work up the courage to use some force on it (and deciding if that I screw one link on a bracelet that was obviously 2.5 links too large wasn't the end of the world) it slid out with the sleeve. Removed 2.5 links and messed with the micro adjustment and its now sized perfectly.

    Thank you for your reply. It was much appreciated.
