Pile of new half links. Now to get to work!

Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

How did you get them?

In addition, does the half link cover the four micro adjustments positions? at this time, my C65 is adjusted at the max and would love to get the half link so I can expand it when my wrist expands....

The half-link is actually a two-thirds link and the previous posts in this thread/topic will provide your answers.

The bracelet is so easy to size and manipulate pieces of, it should be a piece of cake to center if it's not.

Seriously speaking, this pin and collar bracelet is one of the easiest bracelets I've ever adjusted.

Are all CW watches on bracelets coming with half-links now? Or is it by request only?

The C63s do. It would be reasonable to think that they will transition the rest over too. I sent an email to CS to see what they say.

Just sent an email inquiring about half links for the bracelet for my C65 AM GT LE.

I seem to remember someone saying something about an adaptor to retrofit newer bracelets to older watches so as to take advantage of the half links? I’m I correct about that?

I think they were making end links for MKII watches so that the MKIII bracelets could be converted. As long as you have the latest MKIII bracelets the end links will work.

... and I think (though would nice to have confirmation) that the majority of recent bracelets share the same components inboard of the end-links and taper-links, so the half-links should be common across most watches.

That is absolutely true. Same end links went on my C60 and C65 bracelets. I have a 20 mm C65 bracelet too and it has the same width of link at the clasp so it would work there too.

An interesting aside, my Super Compressor as C65-SC engraved on the inside of the end links (something they just started doing which is very helpful!). I just noticed that the 20 mm C65 bracelet has 10 engraved on the end links. Not sure what this would refer to. It is for the Sandhurst.
