    Alpina bracelet is uncomfortable!

    I have an alpina startimer Chrono and I find the butterfly clasp on the bracelet is the most uncomfortable bracelet I've ever known. Am I the only one who has this opinion? Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a possible solution besides just keeping the watch on leather or nylon?

    I tried wearing it looser but then the crown digs into the back of my hand.
    It's a shame because it's a nice looking bracelet.

    Looks tighter than I wear them to leave that mark. Feels like a handcuff? Worn loose the crown is a problem. Not much to do but find another mounting or watch. I have that clasp on mine and but I wear it so loose neither the clasp or the crown are a problem. I like putting my larger watches on N S Co.'s RAF straps, as well. Sweet watch!
    Thank you, I'm flattered, but, please don't click any "Likes" for me (unless there's a prize for "most likes")?
