Perfect Fit: How to Adjust the Bracelet Size of Your Audemars Piguet Royal Oak

Having your Audemars Piguet Royal Oak fit comfortably on your wrist is essential for a pleasurable wearing experience. If the bracelet is too loose or too tight, it can affect both comfort and style. In this guide, we provide step-by-step instructions on how to adjust the bracelet size of your Royal Oak to achieve the perfect fit.

1. Determine the Correct Size

Before making any adjustments, determine the ideal bracelet size that offers a comfortable fit on your wrist. If you are unsure, visit an authorized Audemars Piguet boutique or an experienced watchmaker to help you find the right size.

2. Gather the Tools

You will need the following tools to adjust the bracelet size:

  • A watch bracelet holder or a soft cloth to protect the bracelet's finish.
  • A spring bar tool or a small flat-headed screwdriver to remove the spring bars.
  • A pin pusher or a fine-pointed tool to push out the bracelet pins.
  • A small pair of pliers to grip and secure the pins during adjustments.

3. Removing Links

To remove links, place the bracelet on the holder or soft cloth to protect its finish. Locate the arrows or small holes on the inside of the bracelet links. Use the pin pusher or a small flat-headed screwdriver to push out the pins in the direction indicated by the arrows.

4. Adjusting the Clasp

If necessary, you can also adjust the size of the clasp for a more precise fit. Some Royal Oak models have micro-adjustment settings in the clasp. Use a small flat-headed screwdriver to move the clasp to the desired position for a custom fit.

5. Reassembling the Bracelet

After removing the necessary links or adjusting the clasp, reassemble the bracelet by aligning the holes in the links and reinserting the pins. Use the spring bar tool or pliers to push the pins back into place securely. Ensure that the pins are inserted completely and that there is no play in the links.

6. Test the Fit

Put on your Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and check the fit on your wrist. It should feel comfortable and secure without being too loose or too tight. Adjust as needed to achieve the perfect fit.


Adjusting the bracelet size of your Audemars Piguet Royal Oak allows you to achieve a comfortable and secure fit, ensuring an enjoyable wearing experience.
