    Milanaise Bracelet

    I'm thinking of ordering an Antea KS for my wife for xmas, with the Milanaise Bracelet.

    How easy is it to remove links to correct the size ? and what tools are required ?

    Or would Stowa do this for me in the factory ?

    What are your thoughts on this watch on a womans wrist...

    Shes not actually much of a watch person...

    Removing links is not that difficult.

    The tools required to do are available e.g. at Ebay and even cheap stuff can handle this Stowa bracelet.

    Nevertheless Stowa without any doubt will do that for you or in case further adkustment might be needed every local watchmaker will do this task for very small money. The more difficult Maurice Lacroix bracelet (I did not succeed with my cheap tools in that case) of my mother's watch was shortend for about 3€-5€ I think.

    The combination of KS and Milanaise bracelet itsself is reknowned for its beauty. The rest depends on the wrist...

    I feel your pain
    However, be assured that the Milanaise bracelet is almost a piece of jewelry in it's own right...
    So your lucky wife should a) appreciate your generosity & b) like it for it's attractiveness on her wrist - regardless of the quality of the watch which appears to be attached.

    You shorten it by removing these.
