    Glide Lock for Rolex OP39?

    Hi,

    Really frustrated at the lack of an easy adjustment on the clap for the OP39 bracelet.
    Nice perfect fit for first half of the day, later on in the day it just gets tighter and tighter.

    The Glide Lock system seems ideal, is there a way to fit that clasp to the OP39?
    Any other recommendations out there to make this more comfortable?

    Thanks!

    Easylink fits perfectly

    Glidelock would look weird on the OP. I suggest to look for the easylink extension and not the clasp itself. Maybe try to adjust it one micro adjustment looser to get a good fit.

    That was going to be the other alternative. The only concern here again, is if my
    "perfect" fit falls outside both the adjustments.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So, the Easylink is available in smaller "bits"? Sorry, for sounding a bit of a twit about these things. I have
    always worn every watch I have had on a leather/cloth strap as I just could not get used to the weight
    and the difficulty in getting a good fit. The OP is a new purchase and I would like to give the bracelet
    a proper try. Where would I source the Easylink? From some brief research I understand that Rolex are
    not the easiest brand to get these spares. I purchased the OP from a private sale so I dont have any
    relationship with an AD.

    Thanks!

    Since the OP39 doesn't come with an Easylink, finding one might be a bit of a challenge but would IMHO be a better arc than a Glidelock clasp. Both the Explorer I and Bloodhound Air-King come with an Easylink; unfortunately none of the OP's do. Establishing a relationship with an AD who might order an Easylink would be one alternative or placing a WTB thread on one of the sales pages, or see if someone lists an Easylink on the sales page. In any case I wouldn't wan a Glidelock clasp on any OP that I might happen to own.

    Yes. The easy link is available separately from the clasp.
    The part number you require is B32-20193-D1.
    However, good luck with sourcing one, as you said, Rolex do not sell parts, and your best bet is privately. I've been trying to source one for my 16610 for the past 6 months with no joy and eventually gave up and just bought a glidelock bracelet.

    Alternatively, you could try and source a 77200 bracelet.

    I purchased an easy link alongside my OP (they actually suggested it when I mentioned I wished the OP had one like the Explorer) and they installed it for me. About $100 if I recall correctly
