    Do you size your own bracelets?

    Do you prefer to size the bracelet of a new watch yourself or have it done at an AD (or other watchmaker)? If you prefer to size it yourself, what tools do you recommend?

    Thanks!

    I do all sizing myself. For Oyster bracelets, get yourself a good 1.6mm hollow ground screwdriver and you can do it too if you are careful.

    I do mine. Take it slow and you'll be fine.

    Yes. All the time.

    Except my Stainless Steel Daytona as it is too valuable to risk damaging.

    Just make sure you get the right tool. A high quality screwdriver (e.g. Bergeon) of the correct size for example. Don't go for a cheap soft metal screwdriver from eBay.
