Just turn the bezel a few more times, should become MUCH easier to turn after some time.

... the clasp doesn't:wink: close to tight please help
I've had a couple, not all, but a couple of Invictas BNIB that had not so tight clasps on the bracelet. If it doesn't bother you too much and it doesn't cause the watch to come off your wrist, I'd leave it be. If it really bothers you, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers and, covering the clasp with a soft but moderately thick cloth, ever so gently squeeze the sides of the clasp for a more secure fit. But the key is putting gentle, momentary pressure :wink:to get a touch of a bend. Too much pressure, however, can be a bad thing.:eek: Let us know what you decide, and when you get a chance please posts pics of your 4469.:thumbup1:

yes john- my clasp isn't great, but I resized it a second time and it isn't as bad, but not great- not as nice (clasp) as my grand divers-

good luck with that- if I get it fixed I'll let you know

What part of the clasp is not clicking firmly in place, the first buckle(scissors), or the second one that you fold over, or both?

If it is the locking fold over clasp you are referring to......... Gently squeeze the two bilateral arms that support the flat part of the clasp that you see when wearing the watch. Use pliers with a towel, and barely squeeze.

If it is the buckle part, there is a small tab on the female side that can be manipulated to enable a firm snap.
