    Mine is 16mm on the inside and I had it on an 1171 bracelet previously. You can use that clasp cover if you wanted....

    Thanks for the heads up.
    Wait a minute, I haven't even purchased the U.S. bracelet but I'll have the clasp cover.
    This continues to be a dangerous group of addicts.

    It sounds like you got a clasp for a pretty early version of the 1711. The two most recent ones taper to 16mm and will fit the US1711.
    There is a thread in the forums which allows you to identify them all.

    Dang, this forum really ran a train on that eBay clasp. I was monitoring it for a while and waiting for a coupon to show up but I guess I'll have to get one before y'all sell it out.

    Well, it did sell out, quite quickly. Looking for a second chance as we speak...

    That's an odd listing with the clasps located in the US but they won't ship to US or the UK for that matter.

    Again, changing the whole clasp is something you do not need to do. Just change the cover. It'll be cheaper.

    I’m simply giving the option as most clasps will not match the US bracelet at both ends in terms of diameter. This one does. I couldn’t find just a cover which matched the US1711 clasp anyway, can you please post?

    I think that’s because it was Australian eBay :) I’ve just updated with a link on eBay.com

    Hmm, the same seller has another stash of these clasps?
    A number of OF members, including me, are going to find out soon if this is legit.
    Since the clasp caper has derailed this thread, maybe a new thread tracking it would make sense. Then again maybe not.soon
    I think I'll get another glass of wine.:)

    Same here! I haven't swapped out the bracelet since putting it on.

    I think that is definitely key to easier installation!
