IWC Portuguese Automatic Chrono - great watch, had it for a few years... perfect for black tie events since it's not flashy. Where did you get it from?

I have the Breitling Chronomat Evolution with white dial on a brown croc band now and I absolutely LOVE it. The only trouble is that it does not fit under my cuffs. Also have a white Seamaster Professional 300M Bond on rubber strap, it fits under my cuff, but it's too informal. Hopefully the Portuguese will fill the gap.

Just got this watch

Image

It is loose on me and I am trying to figure out if the band of the watch can be shortened.

It has this type of band

so it is not like the normal kind where you can just pop out the little bolts it is "elastic" and i don't see a place where i can just pop some thing out and pull out a link or two.

Use the little holes on the main clasp for some minor adjustments.

When I first read this I thought you had one of your canine tooth cleaned... Hence why I'm not a dentist. Or a vet.

THanks all i needed was a thumb tack. thank goodness for youtube because i was about to go to the mall and have someone do it for me. would have wasted like 15-20 bucks

it is still a little loose though, do you know if it possible to remove and of the actual links on the band?
