    Small wrist advice for oyster bracelet

    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post. And I need some advice from members that have a small wrist like I do (16cm/6.3 inch).
    I got my first watch, the one and only SKX007 and I'm looking to replace the rubber strap with the famous Super Oyster bracelet from Strapcode.

    My question is; Will the clasp be balanced if I adjusted it for my wrist size? Any huge discomfort/ugliness if it isn't?

    I also saw this other one on Strapcode (SS221803B019) with a deployment clasp that has a whopping minimum length of 100mm lol
    Anyone have any experience with this type of claps? Looks a wee bit fragile but I could imagine that the smaller clasp could be more comfortable for my wrist size.

    Thanks, can you tell a bit more? Wrist size, does it sit loose or is it a nice snug fit? I would prefer the latter.

    Any other 007/9 owners with the this bracelet and small wrist? As long as the clasp doesn't protrude from the bottom of my wrist and the comfort level isn't annoying it would be oke I guess

    If you need to take more than one link out for sizing, take some from each side so it stays balanced.

    They are very well built aftermarket bracelets. Heavy, but comfy once sized.

    My wrist is just a bit larger than yours and I have had no issues with making these bracelets work on a number of watches.
