I've never been able to get a 100% comfy fit with the older clasps, especially not in humid weather or cooking near a hot stove.

So with a bit of modern engineering and a screwdriver my wrists no longer feel like they're about to pop off!

Here is what is needed...
1x Glidelock
1x 1/2 link
1x screwdriver
1x 41 year old Submariner
[/IMG]

Remove the old clasp
[/IMG]

Glidelock and 1/2 link ready to be fitted
[/IMG]

Remove stickers
[/IMG]

ALL stickers!
[/IMG]

Attach clasp to the 6 o'clock side
[/IMG]

Attach 1/2 link to the 12 o'clock side
[/IMG]

Almost ready
[/IMG]

1/2 link going to centre the clasp very nicely
[/IMG]

Done!
[/IMG]

Next to past candidates
[/IMG]

In action
[/IMG]

[/IMG]

[/IMG]

No more sore wrists when cooking!

Anders, what a great photo illustration on how to add the new clasp.

And it certainly fits the bracelet beautifully

Regards

Tony
