    Mesh strap sizing

    Hello,

    I just got this mesh strap in for my deep blue. I have it sized to a point of fitting well, but the last bit of strap hits the bone on my wrist. This makes for an uncomfortable fit. Is it possible to cut this off and it still be comfortable?

    Thank!Name:  20200313_201248.jpg

    If it's true mesh you should be able to cut it down but it will need something to clean up the jagged edge that will be left.

    From experience, no. This style of mesh is not easily shortened.

    Perhaps try reversing the two parts of the strap. The bit which is at 6 o clock to the 12 position, etc. This feels a little weird at first, but you may find the strap sits quite differently

    This is actually a very useful suggestion. I employ this tactic whenever the watch fits properly in terms of tightness but it skews undesirably to one side. For example, the case lifts up at the outboard side of the wrist. This simple swap changes the balance or tipping point as well as potentially the problematic contact point (as seems the OP's case) and improves the wearability. It can be surprisingly effective.

    This type isn't easily adjusted. Also, be aware of the clasp. It holds by compressing the mesh a bit. That spot will be permanently compressed soon and will no longer hold securely. After dropping my watch twice, fortunately on dry land with no damage, I shi!tcanned it. Good luck. YMMV

    I prefer this style of mesh. However, to size it you need to use a Dremel tool to cut off what you want to remove of the mesh to shorten it. Therefore, it will only fit your wrist size or smaller. I find this type of mesh strap to be very comfortable and good looking.

    Try the top to bottom method as this type of mesh doesn’t lend itself to shortening at all well.
