      I've never been able to get a 100% comfy fit with the older clasps, especially not in humid weather or cooking near a hot stove.

      So with a bit of modern engineering and a screwdriver my wrists no longer feel like they're about to pop off!

      Here is what is needed...
      1x Glidelock
      1x 1/2 link
      1x screwdriver
      1x 41 year old Submariner

      Remove the old clasp

      Glidelock and 1/2 link ready to be fitted

      Remove stickers

      ALL stickers!

      Attach clasp to the 6 o'clock side

      Attach 1/2 link to the 12 o'clock side

      Almost ready

      1/2 link going to centre the clasp very nicely

      Done!
