    Question New U2 arrived...Any tips on how to size the rubber strap?

    Hi everyone I just received my new U2 and am about to adjust the rubber strap. I realize any cuts made are irreversible so I want to be cautious. When I resize my bracelets I always take several more links off the 6 o'clock side so that the buckle is even on on my wrist. Do I have to do the same on the rubber strap? Any tips /suggestions would be appreciated !

    Thanks! Dave

    congrats on the new watch.

    as you already know, sizing the rubber is irreversible once you cut. cut one piece off at a time, then reattach the clasp after each cut so that you can check the sizing and the clasp positioning. that's really all there is to it. i used a fresh box cutter blade...an exacto knife works well too.

    Hi,

    my wrist is 6,6 inch and the rest of my rubber is:

    side of 6 o'clock = one hole
    side of 12 o'clock = two holes

    And my clasp is in the middle of the back side from the wrist.

    Note: You can push out the round metal pieces from the holes. Some people says, there are good for stability, but I asked the customer service at Sinn directly. Official statement: No serious function.

    cheers
