I’ve been told it’s “on the list”. Luckily, I get a pretty nice fit with the standard clasp.
Let’s hope it’s high on that list.

For me it’s either just right (and too snug by end of day) or too loose and just right by end of day. It’s a shame too, as this is an excellent bracelet and would be perfection with a micro adjust clasp.
All your talk about Sinn clasps and you are missing the main points of that photograph:
1) the PD has a utility vehicle for patrolling the beach
2) they let Chris drive it

I can only hope you are doing your very best David Hasselhoff impression - or your Notch Johnson impression

In the spirit of “The Hoff” maybe we need to call Chris “The Tell”

I figured it out

I just wear it on the bigger clasp pin setting but stick a square of black gorilla tape on the case back. I know purists will turn their noses up to this, but you can’t see it, it doesn’t come off after being soaked a dozen times and the watch fits perfectly.

I learned years ago that almost everything can be fixed with duct tape :cheers:

U1 on the bracelet is a great fit. i'm lucky enough to be in its sweet spot, but i wouldn't complain about a nice micro-adjustment clasp. it's my biggest watch, so a good clean fit is important.
