teeveetee Wrote:BP4ME, I just took a peek at my BP strap... and I wonder (although some might find this sacrilegious) whether an extra hole could be punctured in between the two holes you usually use? Probably best not to try and do so oneself with a needle - but there must be bespoke watch strap who would charge a de minimus fee to use their tool to create the extra tool... Anyone ever try this?Regards,Thang
andy stevens Wrote:BP4ME,I too have had the same issue with strap comfort. I found it amazing that just one hole change can be to tight or to loose. My wrists are on the smaller size. Short straps are generally 20mm less than the standard.My AD made a suggestion that has worked well for me. Try mixing a short and standard strap. For instance, use the short end of the standard with the long end of the short and then use the short end of the short with the long end of the standard to make up a second strap. This creates a different hole pattern than what you have now. You should find a better fit with this scenario. Have your AD/Boutique put one together for you to try on. Hope this helps.Best,Andy

Your 5004's strap might be different. In the meantime, Andy's AD suggestion certainly sounds good to me.
