For those who have a DJ41, how many links did you have to remove?

I have a 7.5" wrist and removed one link that gave me a slight loose fit with ambient temperature and tightens up when it is hot. Perfect time to use the extra 5mm feature.

Maybe this would settle what is a proper DJ for our wrists. I came upon a thread where someone didn't remove any links for his DJ41...

7.5 inch wrist. Didn't remove any links. Switched position on micro adjustment to be tighter. I use Easylink when it's hot.

I have a 7.5 wrist. I have the easy link closed and the last link in the middle position on the clasp. I actually added an extra link on the 6 side and it fits perfect.

Everyones wrist shape and wear position is different so what works for you may not work for me and vice versa.

None. I have 7,25 inch wrist and I have to admit that the DJ is a tough one to get a comfortable fit. Another one is the AK. No issues whatsoever with the other 8.

Ergonomics of wrists are always different, it isn’t just the circumference but the shape too. My wrist is flat 7.5 inch. A round wrist would probably have a different adjustment for the exact same size.

Makes sense but instead of removing one link, would it theoretically work if I just moved the clasp adjustment to one slot bigger? It is in the middle setting at the moment.

If so, should I return the linked removed or it is more ideal to leave the clasp adjustment on the middle?

Not that straight forward.

Various sizing can also be made via micro adjustments on clasp and the 5mm easy link extension. Not to mention wrist shape.

As a general rule anything more than 2 links removed may indicate that the smaller size Ďmayí be more suitable.

Sorry moving too fast. Where the bracelet attaches to the clasp you have the option to attach it in one of 3 slots . Mine is In the center slot. Did not need to remove any links. The easylink can still be extended for an extra length when warm. Fits my 7 In wrist well

I've got a 7.25" wrist and I've both bracelets with my DJ41 and I haven't removed any links of both. The micro adjustment is set to the middle position of the clasp on both. Both bracelets fit very well and comfortable with this setting.
