I've had to look for a few but have yet to lose one. I still don't see why Seiko can't put the collar on the inside of a link like everyone else.

Cuz Seiko is special. Kinetics and screw-down crowns, doncha know.

Because Seiko is the honey badger of horology. They don’t give a fuck!

I guess Seiko isn't alone. Maybe the outside collar with stepped pin holds better in testing.

Here's the guide I used way back when.

One of the things that makes watch collecting suck. Until you get the fit right, then all is forgotten........until the next one..... then flashbacks.

I have yet to not lose one. Still, I've never had a Seiko bracelet fail on me once sized.

You want a pain in the ass, try sizing one of the newer SMP bracelets.

Ive sized a few and never lost a collar yet. Now spring bars suddenly realizing that they can fly has cost me a few.

Worse bracelet Ive ever tried to size was on a Movado. Finally gave up on it and took it to a jeweler.
