    Maybe its possible to weld it to 20mm and grind a bit off to get the angle against the case better?

    i suggest to weld the case to 19mm and reshape the lugs to fit better on the endlinks.

    That's also what my Consultant Urology Surgeon said. The angle still ain't right... and I seem to be missing the pan at 3am in the dark. I may apply a bit of Luminova to the rim of the pan.::shy::

    On a serious note, concerning 'I'll fitting bracelets', (and don't forget... I know fakk all about watches); does it really make an a lot of difference if the endlinks don't sit correctly against the lugs?... or is this a purist thing?

    Right... I'll take that as a... "What?..Yes!!! Of course it matters if the end links fit... That's why we have diffferent end links! So they fit!...you 'nonuffinkbloke twat'!" ::shy::

    Forget this and buy a 1175 which will be less costly, probably period correct, likely have matching patina to your watch, fit properly and have a similar 'flat link' appearance.
