    Wrist sizing

    I ordered a 41 Mm ARF Jubilee Flt 904LYG/SS Asia 2824 from TT. Andrew has been great, but my wrist is 18.75cm (7.3in) will it fit out of the box? What do you guys recommend I do if it doesn’t fit ? Looked great and GL’d today. Is this something I can do myself, either adding or subtracting links to make it fit? Thanks guys

    If you can use an eyeglass screwdriver, you should be able to size a Rolex bracelet yourself.

    ^^^^THIS^^^^

    Please don't buy cheep Amazon drivers. There is no better brand of driver than Horotec and Esslinger will sell you a basic set of those for 22 bucks, add a set of spare blades and postage and it still comes out under 30 bucks or so. Quality tools will last abnd won't wreck your watch. https://www.esslinger.com/horotec-pr...-style-blades/

    Add a cheap loupe for under 3 bucks: https://www.esslinger.com/jewelry-lo...-choose-power/ If your eyes are good a 3x will do nicely, the higher the power the smaller the focal length (ie: how far it is from the work wen in focus) so don't go too high.

    Throw in a spring bar tool (and spare tip set) and you have everything 90% of folk will ever need. https://www.esslinger.com/horotec-fu...ring-bar-tool/

    If you buy Omegas add a pin punch set as well. https://www.esslinger.com/horotec-se...80-and-1-00mm/

    Yep, in this rep game a set of watchmaker screwdrivers are a must have.... you can find it for 10 or 15 € on Amazon mate nearly every high end watch has screwed links

    It is easy to remove a link, but please make sure the screwdriver fits the link screw slot properly or you will chew up the screw slot. As above Rx4Time says above use a magnifying eyeglass too, this also helps not to mangle screws.

    The tools are cheap and then you have what you need for your next bracelet adjustment

    If the watch is to big go to a mall with a watch kiosk. It will only take a few minutes. After you see how it is done you can buy a couple tools and do it yourself. Don’t go to a store that sells Gen’s.

    Update: Andrew said it should fit, if it’s a LITTLE big no problem. Maybe shouldn’t have posted in new members, sorry mods.
