    I need bracelet help!!!!!!!

    How do I stop this from happening? One day it's going to fall out and I'm going to lose my mind. Would a dab of clear fingernail polish do it?

    Little splash of loctite should sort it

    The blue kind? It's what I use to lock down threads on my guns. But it can be removed with a bit of force.

    Loctite can be removed with force if you apply enough, but that would only happen if your purposefully trying to remove the pin, otherwise its safe

    Loctite 222 is the one I use.

    I don't know about that one, but certainly some Breitling have a central collet that holds the pin in place. I'd check because if there is the sort of lateral movement I'd expect it there is a missing or faulty collet, loctite will fail over time. Whip it out and have a look.
