Rolex Loose Clasp Fix

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share this trick with anybody who hasn't heard of it, and is having problems with a loose clasp which keeps opening on their rolex  - have tried it myself with oyster bracelet and president bracelet clasps, works very well.

Hmm maybe try slightly bending the other side, but to make it less curved?

It doesn't really matter which 'arm' of the clasp you alter as it's the actual change in overall relative length between 'hinge' and 'catch' that increases/decreases the strength of closure

Exactly, so if he's finding it hard to bend the "right" side outward, he can try bend the "left" side inward for the same effect.

Ah ok, then probably the actual catch which holds the two parts of the clasp together is not deep enough or maybe twisted out to a weird angle. I'm not too sure what the fix would be.
