Great watch. See my tip for using the clasp.
on June 12, 2010
I love this watch! For me, the most challenging part of learning how to use the very unique clasp on my watch was getting the little "gate" that has the Sturhling logo on top to open up for the first time. Until you get this gate open, you won't be able to move the little post inside. Opening the gate will allow the strap to slide through so you can adjust the fit of the band and close the folding clasp. I found and printed the written and pictorial instructions for how to use the clasp from the internet. See the end of my review for the link. While the instructions were helpful, they didn't solve my problem with opening the gate. My husband and I had almost given up when I had an idea. I obtained the orange plastic logo that was attached to the watch band in the box and noticed that the width looked about right for inserting into the gate. I applied a little pressure, and voila, the gate popped open. After that, using the clasp was much easier. After a few minutes of practice, I'm now able to put the watch on by myself after initially thinking that this wouldn't be possible. Please don't give up and return your watch until you've tried this. The link to the instructions I found online is as follows:
