OK, I just purchased my first DOXA, a 1200T and man do I love it! Now, it may just be my bracelet, but man was it an absolute pain in the ass to size! The screws were the tightest bracelet screws I have ever tried to remove! So I took my time and Googled a few tips on how best to remove them safely without ruining the screw or bracelet. What I ended up doing is using a hair dryer toi heat the bracelet so that the loctite would possibly loosen up. I would also suggest that you have a VERY good screwdriver...No cheap ones!! My watch was technically pre-owned, only two months old and was never on the bracelet (it was still wrapped in the factory protective plastic, however it didn't come with the DOXA screwdriver). I took my time and had to heat the bracelet with the hairdryer to the point where it was very hot to the touch. I used a cloth to hold it so my fingers wouldn't get burned! I took my screwdriver and attempted to loosen the screw, and I would advise you keep firm pressure downward so as not to strip the screw head. Slowly, I began to loosen the screw, (but it was still very tight to turn for a couple of turns) until it was unscrewed entirely. Even when it was unscrewed, I had to insert a pin tool in the hole and push firmly upward to get the screw out of the hole. I had to remove three links in all to get it adjusted correctly. This was by far the hardest strap adjustment I have ever performed and I thought I would post what it took for me to adjust it without damaging it. I would just add, PATIENCE PATIENCE PATIENCE is your friend, don't try to rush the job because it will damage the bracelet, watch, or screw!!! Hope this helps someone who may encounter the same issue with their DOXA watch or any other brand that has extremely tight screws.
