In today’s episode of Watch and Learn, we will cover the ins and outs of sizing a watch bracelet. It is a rather simple task that can be accomplished by both novice and expert. There are many ways to size a bracelet, so we show you how to do it with three of the most popular tools out there; a spring bar tool, a bracelet vise, and a hammer and block. Once you have the know-how, you won’t have to pay a jeweler again to do this for you.
The standard friction or cotter pin bracelet will be discussed in this video, with future Watch and Learns dedicated to other bracelets such as pins and collars.
The tools used in this episode are rather affordable, and a selection of them is shown below:
