    Strap or Bracelet Choices for Muhle Divers

    I am wondering what strap alternatives you might suggest for Muhle Divers. Specifically, I took delivery on the Seebattailon and even when cutting the rubber strap to the shortest option it is just a tad loose. I like my straps tight.. So i would like to know what alternatives might be out there. Prefer something that is waterproof albeit I am not sure I will ever take it swimming but want that option… and then something that is short enough for my wrist.
    Titanium bracelet is ok but based on the shape of the lugs I think one needs a curved bracelet for optimal connection. Thoughts or suggestions?

    Can you take the extension off the clasp and connect the end
    of the strap directly to the clasp?


    Thanks,

    I don't see a way to do that. The clasp already attaches to the strap. The only way would be to drill another hole sideways into the strap.

    Maybe I have it wrong, but this is what I envision.

    Can you push out spring bars at "A" and "B"? Then set aside
    the extension and attach the end of the strap "B" at "A"?

    That is a good idea. Now that i shortened --- this might make the length too short now.. darn.. I am going to try it tomorrow anyway

    Glad you got it dialed in.

    I put my Seebattailon on a blue Isofrane. The original clasp seemed too big for me and I like the feel of the lighter weight Isofrane. The blue color matches the dial almost perfectly.
