2nd post ever - please excuse my naivety :)
Probably a simple answer to this!

First Seiko purchase - thinking pin/one end of the folding clasp, attached to the z fastening on the bracelet looks bent?
Might I have done this myself, putting too much pressure on clasp unfastening it, or is it a wear and tear/age thing?

In other words I'm assuming the pins at both ends of the clasp should be straight, little worried if pin bent then one end of z fastening must be bent too :undecided:

Any suggestions appreciated.

Are you asking about the spring pin that attaches the bracelet to the case, or the spring pin in the clasp? Also, which model watch is this? If you can post a picture, I hear they're worth a thousand words... :)

Hi twall3, the pin in the clasp - the pin attaching the bracelet to the clasp is straight, the other pin which attaches the clasp to the bottom part of the z part appears to be bent.

Not pins attaching bracelet to case. 7500-8000 with grains of rice bracelet.

Alas no pictures or links yet - only my 2nd post!

Hi Ewan-

I'm not familiar with the watch - but can't think of any watches off hand that wouldn't use a straight pin in a bracelet hinge. If you get up to the required post limit, post a pic and I'm sure myself and other will be able to be more helpful. Good luck!

Just checked some of mine and on everyone the pins is straight.
So I'd say it shouldn't be like it is on yours but the pin shouldn't get bent from only fastening/unfastening the clasp. Even if it has been done with lots of pressure!
