    Does Doxa use loctite on their BOR Bracelets?

    I've noticed the screws in my Doxa bracelets have been incredibly hard to remove, to the point that even a local watch boutique stripped a few trying to size the bracelet. Have I simply been unlucky in my two experiences (Both on the new BOR) or is this normal? Any tips from the Doxa-sphere to help me size it without getting the screws striped?

    The bracelets are supremely comfortable, so I'd like to wear it on the BOR.

    Yes, sometimes the factory does use thread lock, if you feel the screws are too tight use a hair dryer or some warm/hot (not boiling) water on the bracelet, do not heat the watch case. This should soften the thread lock enough to get the screws out.

    I've sized 3 of them, and did not notice any excessive tightness. I found them very easy and wuck to size. Never has an issue with them getting loose, although I occasionally check them.

    Perhaps I've just been unlucky! In my new bracelet, two screws came out in an easy, yet solid fashion, the others refuse to budge. Even after taking to a professional jeweler and trying a hot soak bath, the screws are stuck and a few have now stripped... Bmmer town. But I found a cool bonetto cinturini strap to wear as consolation.
