    Everest rivet bracelet sizing advice please

    I received my bracelet this morning to be fitted to my 36mm Everest, from the 1ˢᵗ batch last December. If anyone's sized one for a 7" wrist can you tell me how many (if any) links you removed and which side/s you took it/them from please. Thanks in advance.

    My wrist is 6 7/8. I removed 3 links and have the bracelet attached at the second hole of the clasp. I have no removeable links left on the 6 o'clock end and 3 on the other end. The "scissors" of the clasp are more or less centred on my wrist, but the visible part of the clasp is not. You will likely need an extra link. I hope this helps.

    I removed 2 links from the 'Rivet' bracelet for a 7 1/2 inch wrist. Clasp is at the first hole or maximum diameter.
    The bracelet fits exceptionally well but I'll most probably have to revisit sizing for the summer months when the local temperature sometimes exceeds 45'C combined with high humidity causing the body to retain fluid and fat wrists.

    The Black Dial 36mm with 'Rivet' bracelet is due to arrive with me this afternoon and I'll experiment with only 1 link removal and minimizing the diameter using the clasp.

    Truely lovely watches with I think exceptionally well made and attractive rattle free bracelets.

    First post after years of lurking, be gentle.

    Curses! UPS have just emailed to say my package containing the Black Dial Everest 36mm is being held for exceptional circumstances and an alternative delivery date will be arranged. No 'Rivet' bracelet sizing for me this evening after a day of happy anticipation.

    Thanks again gents, saved me a little time adding and removing links to get the size right and the clasp where I want it. In fact I spent more time dressing my screwdriver and putting a new tip in the Bergeon!

    You have wrote four posts since you joined sir, your fifth is now a comment on this thread to which the OP has asked a genuine question. I can't see what the issue is but you being smarmy is not very helpful.

    Good evening, welcome to the forum. Although you state that you won't improve your grammar it's your manners that you need to work on. I hope you enjoy your time here.
