slightly Snug or

Here its Humid also so slightly snug and a little movable up or down
the wrist slightly. I prefer bracelets over straps, so they are lightly
loose. Straps here get all the Muck collected then they get eventually
My diving watchs though all have Solid bracelets similar to the ( J. J.).. ones.
I make them myself out of Stainless Steel strips, so they are good in use.
So far I have about (8) made and they work just fine. Salt water is a killer
for rubber or PVD ones.
Some I have made out of heavy Nylon straps and they work good also.
Its only for diving so it is very good to use. All my (3) Main divers I have drilled out lug's
and installed ( Tapped Threads for Screw In Stainless Steel Pin's ) because I don't want
to loose them in any way. ( Just precaution of mine. )
I have made Adapters that slip into the Lug's to install the screws in them.
I experimented with one watch head to slip into a Two Piece Case for more protection in
I milled down the outside of a 6309 -7290 case to drop into the new case halves, locked
with two screws, recessed for the crown that has a pressed on ..........
(Tubular Extended Adapter for the Crown Head on it.
My diving partner, she liked them so she uses them for her.
Case looks like the .... ( Citizens Swan Watch ) but Two Pieced....
( Lug to Lug Split down the center, with center alignment Tangs for tight fit.. )
Could not find one so I made Two of them, One out of Stainless and another of Air Craft Aluminum.

Had to keep busy doing something.
