    Clamp it between two nickels (or any round coins roughly the width of the strap) ...and then hit it with the lighter. [emoji91]

    On the MkII clasp? It’s a single flip-lock, secure but not over tight. Not much to say about it really, I’m happy.

    I’m not 100% sure on the assertion that leading digits are manufacturing date, there’s a 16xxxx on eBay that claims to have a 2783 and I thought they were sold through by then.
