    Adjust metal bracelet with clasp or only by removing links?

    I have ordered an SKX007K2 and I assume that the bracelet will be too big and that I will have to adjust the size of it.

    As I understand it, you can adjust the size both by adjusting the number of links but also at the clasp by taking the spring bar out and put it through one of the other pre-drilled holes.

    Which of these methods is recommended? Is there any of the holes in the clasp that is recommended to use?

    The holes are just to make micro adjustments, I would put it in the hole second from the end, adjust the number of links to get as close as you can to a proper fit, then move which hole the pin is it to fine tune the fit.

    Thank you so much! I think what you are saying seems very logical and I will try it. It is my first automatic. I'm kinda excited about it. However, one funny thing is that I might be more into leather straps but it seems wrong to have that on a diver. :)

    Welcome and this....."However, one funny thing is that I might be more into leather straps but it seems wrong to have that on a diver. :)"
    this is not true. Many divers wear them on Leather straps. On the Dive Watch Forum there is a thread for just that purpose.....

    Divers are great on both stainless as well as leather straps, so wear what you like best.
