Trimming end link tabs
It's always exciting when a customer lets me know that one of my bracelets fits a new watch. Sometimes the bracelet will fit the case radius perfectly and align with the spring bar holes with a nice tight fit between the end links and case. Occasionally, though, you will need to do some light modifications to make it work.
Below you'll find one of the most common mods needed to get your Uncle Seiko bracelets on the wrist where they belong. If you haven't already, checkout the Bracelet Compatibility Chart to view a list of all bracelet/watch combinations I offer.
Trim the end link tabs
If you own a new Speedmaster 3861 and you're looking to wear it on the Uncle Seiko 1450, you're in luck! There's a very simple mod that can be done to get this to work. Basically, you will just need to clip off the tabs of the end links and it will fit great. I recommend a small pair of metal snips or something similar.
