    Watch bracelet fitting issue...

    Basically I've been exercising a lot more over the last year.

    As a result, I've toned up and lost some excess fat.

    My EDC seamaster, freshly back from service, is feeling a little too loose for comfort.

    I've taken out a link and now of course it's a little too tight...

    I HATE watches being too loose.

    My question is, is it OK for the watch to be a bit too tight?

    I don't want to put strain on the spring bars or link pins...

    There do seem to be some half links out there so I'll be trying to get hold of one of those soon. But if I decide to just keep it tight, is that okay?

    Id really like one of those new clasps with the micro adjust but not sure if I can get one for my 18mm bracelet.

    Adjustment in the clasp is normally fractions of a link size. Go it a try.

    There is no way to adjust the clasp I currently have

    I can’t imagine it harming the watch unless it is really tight and then it will be too uncomfortable to wear. Unless the clasp adjustment is already in the “longest” hole, that may give you a little wiggle room as Don Luis suggested. I’m like you, I can’t abide a watch flopping around. Keep after it...

    Oh, no clasp adjustment...hmmm, sounds like you may need to bulk up again!

    I could spend the value of a half link on quite a few Krispy Kreme doughnuts....

    Plus, I’m guessing with warmer weather it will get tighter, so you may be adding back the link.

    Krispy Kreme’s are the best, no doubt!

    Seriously though, I have used a bracelet extender before. Seems I found them on Esslinger. But I don’t know if you could fit one in half link size. When I used them it was in lieu of a link when I could not locate one for a particular bracelet. Half link is sounding like the best bet.
