    It seems to be in line with the stem, which is usually where I start looking. What movement is it? Citizen/Miyota? ETA or Ronda?

    would you believe after try to fit it for like an hour gave up and on closer look the one side of the strap the link is all wrong on it's shape wise so somehow the last link on the one side has come away might have it hope it is in the bottom of the strap box will have to check have put it on a canvas strap but not sure about it as it has the bulge in the middle of the case will do pics in the morning well maybe afternoon
