    Bracelet links

    Is there a rule of thumb regarding removing an odd number of bracelet links?
    I have always had to remove an even number until the T-Graph.
    If I need to remove an odd number, is it better to take the extra one from the 12 o'clock side or the 6 o'clock side?
    Thanks,

    William

    I suppose it may depend on your wrist (?) but I always take the extra link off the 6:00 side. Seems to place both watch and clasp nearest the center of my wrist top and bottom.
    Regards, T Bone.

    Thanks T Bone,

    I was leaning that way as it makes sense pullilng the watch back to center.
    I shall proceed.
    It certainly is a heave sucker!!!

    T-Bone's got it right. You always remove the odd link from the 6.

    Re: Bracelet links

    How timely! I'm going to change mine now. As many of you have stated, these steel bracelets are EXTREMELY comfortable. After wearing mine 24x7 for several weeks now, I have no complaints with comfort. However, it does seem to rotate a bit towards 12:00. After reading this post, I realize I have 1 extra on the 6:00 side, so I'm going to move it and try it out.


    Thanks!

    Bracelet links

    Strange ... I had to remove 5 links (:oops:), and pulled the fifth from the 12 side. I as OK for a few days, then realized that this arrangement was making me nuts. The clasp wasn't centered on my wrist ....

    I moved one link from the 12 to the six; now all is well with the universe. I've got five (not counting the last that attaches to the clasp) on the 12, and six on the six; the clasp is now centered.

    Does this mean that I've got screwed up wrists??

    I just adjusted it and the clasp is dead center now!

    Thanks for bringing this up!

    Re: Bracelet links

    Glad someone enjoyed the post. I was almost not going to ask the question. I figured that I was missing something obvious.
    Thanks again for the support.
    Now I just have to get use to the T-Graph weight although most of the time I just sit a stare at it.
    I think it wears slightly smaller than a regular 750 because the dial color is broken up a bit by the registers.
    I am hoping that I don't have to swap it for a 1000T!!!

    Re: Bracelet links

    On my 600T's and my 1000T Pro, I don't have the same amount of links on both sides. I have six on the 6:00 position and seven on the 12:00 position. The clasp looks centered to me.
