    Omega Micro Adjustable Clasp

    Thought I'd start a fresh thread.
    So it arrived from the Omega Boutique today, took about 10 minutes to fit to the bracelet, 4 screws basically and that was that. Glad I decided to go for it and ignore the advice from Lunns in Belfast.
    The clasp itself is bigger and longer so I had to remove another link to allow for this but very comfortable on the wrist.
    Great service from the Regent St shop.

    Great job - must do the same for my SMP but its a bit more complex for me I think - I've to get end links to connect to it I think. Did you just email or phone the boutique?

    Does anyone know (please) if this works with the 2531.80 too? My bracelet is a tad too tight and I'd been thinking of buying a half link but one of these would be considerably better.

    Just phoned the Boutique up mate. Had the part number from a previous thread. The clasp inst actuslly for this watch, it's for an SMP 300. Fits 100% though.
    This was the issue I was having with Lunns. I wanted them to order it for me but they wouldn't, claiming Omega won't send it unless it's for the watch it's made for!!
    Which is why I was amused somewhat when I'm able to order direct from a boutique with zero hassle. And it's free next day delivery too.

    Just be aware there a 3 adjustable clasps - with and without diver’s extension, and with more or fewer adjustments.

    I have just fitted an adjustable clasp to my 42mm PO 8500, which has a 20/18mm bracelet, ordered from a local AD Frazer Hart. Had to remove one full link. This is a five year old watch just back from a full service at Omega.
    The watch feels better on my wrist now the bigger clasp helping to balance the watch head.

    I have that clasp on my new Seamaster, and find it works really well for a great fit. Perhaps I ought to get one for my Planet Ocean as well having seen this.
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    Did this to my 2254 few years back and definitely the best upgrade you can do.

    Did this attach to the existing links or did you need to buy different links too?

    I've the same PO as you Alphajet, thanks for your photos and comments. it looks like the new clasp is wider than the bracelet, not the same width as the old clasp was, is there a thinner one? Part numbers and price wold be handy as I#m considring it too. How does it compare to the Rolex glidelock? that seems a fabulous bit of clasp!

    I have a 2500 Planet Ocean (42mm). I bought it in 2010 and the bracelet (with push pins) and clasp are pretty knackered.

    Does anyone know if I could fit my watch with a new bracelet designed for the 8500 (with screws)?

    The clasp needs to he that size as the bracelet fit inside the clasp so to speak.

    Indeed. There are a few pictures in this old thread showing the ratcheting mechanism on the clasp.

    The new clasp has to be wider than the bracelet as the sliding extension link goes inside the clasp as can be seen here. So no there is no thinner one.



    The part number is shown here. This fits the 42mm PO with a 20/18mm bracelet. The price through Frazer Hart was £87.



    Comparison to the glidelock on my SD. The glidelock has around twice the amount of adjustment and looks more secure with flip lock system. So the Rolex glidelock is is better IMHO.

    However the Omega clasp is a big improvement on the original and money well spent.

    I got this info from Topper's about three clasps that fit the bracelet of my Great White:

    The clasp ending in 4666 is 34.5mm long.

    The clasp ending in 1154 is 39.5mm long.

    The clasp ending in 1159 is 44mm long.


    Clasp 4666 has 3 adjustments, while 1154 and 1159 both have 6 adjustments.


    Topper's installed the clasp on the bracelet along with two links to fit the clasp to the older style bracelet.



    I also added an adjustable clasp to my 2264 bracelet, worth every penny.

    Hi guys.
    I’m really interested in getting one of these. Is there one available for my 2220.80?
    If so what is the part number so I can order one?
    Thank you
