    Hi there everyone I'm new to this forum just bought myself and my wife for our big anniversary a tag aquaracer each but I have a problem with mine and taking it back to the jewelers very soon ,they sized the bracelet strap for me and it's either to tight or faulty ,the fastening clasp digs into my wrist and is very uncomfortable to wear ,the clasp bit that sits against my skin feels very sharp compared to my tissot which is very comfy ,has anybody else come across this ?or is the bracelet to tight any advise on this would be appreciated as this is my first tag it was a choice between the quartz with blue face or the automatic with ceramic bezel which was 800pounds dearer and as I was buying two watche's it was a lot of pounds to outlay

    In my humble opinion if it's digging in it probably too tight, your wrist may have returned to normal size after purchase, you should be able to turn the watch around your wrist depending on how tight you like to wear it, I'm sure one full link in the strap or possibly a half link will sort it out for you. Then we need pictures.

    Have a look on the clasp, you may have 4 holes on the side, these are positions for the strap. On my aquaracer they provide enough adjustment to compensate for weather and fitness changes without needing to remove links. In the picture below you can see its on the second from tightest:

    I had a similar problem with a 2000 series, I tried everything but in the end I bought a rubber strap. Some clasps are just badly designed.
