I’m not sure I understand the complaints about the clasp, my 556i does have micro adjustment holes:

Or maybe you meant something like a glidelock to adjust “on the fly”?

In general I quite like the clasp in fact, it’s not overly long (like the new sub one) or overly thick (cough... MM300... cough...), it’s machined and feels solid.

Yes, we’ve all been hoping for an easily adjustable clasp like Omega and Rolex offer. Sinn has shown no interest in making one.

The problem is the lack of adjustment in the buckles for the rubber straps. Oris has a really nice system:

Problem for me is that with my current setup I’m on the last hole and it’s a bit too snug, but if I add a link and move to the closest hole it’s too loose. I need a Goldilocks solution.

I couldn’t get the proper fit on that 556 bracelet either. Same problem as Hop.

Honestly after wearing a glidelock for so long I can’t seem to wear any other type of bracelet.

Just had my U1 serviced by Terry; solid work.

I’ll remember that. The U1 is probably going to need a service in the next year or two.

556i uses a basic Sellita movement, I don’t plan sending mine in at Sinn whenever it’s needed.

Now I want an EZM3F though

A no-date 3F would be stellar. I suggested it long ago, but it’ll never happen.
