    SUB200 owners, please read

    Dear SUB200 owners,

    Please be very patient and careful when removing the screws to adjust the bracelet on the SUB200, else you will end up scratching the bracelet and upsetting your better half. The screws are slightly secured, so if you can't do it, a short visit to a watchmaker will save you a lot of disappointment. If you have the right screwdriver and you are familiar with the procedure, then go ahead but be very careful and don't rush.

    Thanks for the heads up. Is there any thread lock (Loctite) applied to the screws from the factory?

    Is this another situation where mild heat (hot tap water or a hair dryer) will be beneficial? (This works with screws that use a thread locking compound).
    Regards, T Bone.

    There's another failure mode besides scratching:
    I was resizing my wife's Coralline and the screw was coming out with a little bit of resistance torque to it. Not much mind you, not even an alarming amount. All of a sudden it got REALLY easy. The threads sheared off of the pin. I think my neighbors heard me...two blocks down!
    Alright you primitives...this is my BOOM stick!!

    Sized my wife'S Coralline last night. Removed 4 link. Went pretty smooth all the way.It looked like there was some kind of wax in the thread? Did not put in any kind of Lock-tite in it tho I'll make sure to check the screws once in the while.

    By the way, this thing beats the hell out of her Gucci!!!

    Cheers Doxa

    Tip: For those who don't already do so, lay a piece of scotch tape over the screws to be removed. You can push your screwdriver through the tape easily, and still unscrew/screw the bracelet screw. If you slip a bit, the tape protects the side of the link from scratches.

    I also do this on the back of the lugs when changing straps.

    I read this tip somewhere years ago, and it works wonderfully It has saved me quite a few oaths of anger and frustration invoking the various deities and carnal knowledge.
