Thanks Rob and happy birthday. I'm glad to see you around on the new format. How did you make out with the 350M LUM-TEC?
Thanks Mike! I have the Lum-Tec 350m on my short “Buy” list - I love the look and specs. But I made 2 recent purchases that put that one on the back burner for now. A Swiss Made COSC Certified Ocean7 LM-8 (Ocean 7 is clearancing them out at a rediculous price around $368 if I remember right - awesome watch) and I broke down and got an orange dial Raven Deep Tech at a good price that arrives tomorrow.

Congrats on the two new acquisitions Rob. Looking forward to seeing them, especially the RDT. You can never go wrong with that one.

I didn't see any arrows on the bracelet above and had a feeling these were assembled by pipes and pins.

Dear Mr xxxxxxxxxx,

Thank you for your email.

The links are held together by push out pins and collars, please let me know if you need anything else.

Kind Regards,

Katie Howard

The links in the latest bracelets are connected using a pin and collar system, which is similar in concept to that used by several other manufacturers, including Seiko and Omega. Essentially, each link has a pin running through its width, with the central part also running through the adjoining link. In the center part, there is a collar which is is held in place by virtue of being a tight fit on the pin.

To remove a link is quite straightforward if you have the right tools (Which can be sourced quite cheaply and easily). Each pin is simply knocked out using a small pin punch and hammer. Sizing the bracelet is then a matter of removing links until the watch fits. On top of this, the bracelet has micro adjustment holes in the clasp, which mean small adjustments can be made by moving the spring-bar - again a simple job with the right tools.

If you do not have the tools or the confidence/experience, any high street jeweler will adjust the bracelet for you, for a small cost - some do it for free.

As a final alternative, CW will adjust the bracelet for you, prior to dispatch. This service is offered during the checkout process.
