On the other side, the bracelet is stunning. The links are slim and elegant. I don't mind the rivets, to be honest don't notice them when wearing the watch. And the clasp is stunning, with the ceramic ball bearings mechanism. It's a great bracelet, if not for the lousy fit (shame on Tudor for that).
After a lot of research I found no adequate fix, like and aftermarket half link, and all solutions meant not wearing the clasp, which is the highlight of this bracelet. I even considered having a jeweller punch a fourth hole on the clasp.
This is until now. I recently purchased a STRAPCODE bracelet that was the solution.
This bracelet is made for the BB 58 and has great quality. The end-links fit perfectly, no gaps and snug along the lugs. It is NOT riveted. The brushing is beautiful and matches the watch case. It's a great bracelet, if not for the slightly bulky clasp. The design is fine, but it is thicker than the Tudor clasp, and you can't obviously compare the smoothness of the mechanism.
A. StrapCode Bracelet with Tudor Clasp
You can fit the Tudor Clasp by connecting the Tudor clasp-end-link (from the safety lock side) to the StrapCode bracelet. This means having the Tudor bracelet first riveted link showing, but to be honest it's unnoticeable. It looks like it belongs to the clasp more intricate design. Colour and brushing match perfectly.
This is a great solution for those who don't like the riveted bracelet.
Note that the StrapCode bracelet has a male end-link, slightly more protruding than the Rolex male end-link.
I measure 52mm from end-link to end-link, but it angles down and hugs the wrist nicely.
The StrapCode clasp-end-link on the micro adjustment side is a few milometers shorter than the Tudor's clasp-end-link. This means that for those struggling with the goldilocks fit (not too tight, not too loose) it could fix the problem. It's the same fix as a half link.
There are two issues here:
1. the Strapcode clasp-end-link (female) is a hairline tighter than the Tudor bracelet link (male). It's really a hairline, the Tudor link gets a bit stuck. I fixed it with a fine sandpaper stick. A couple of brushes is enough.
2. the Strapcode screw-link is thick and won't fit the Tudor male link hole. Still trying to solve this one.
The great think is that most of the StrapCode clasp-end-link is hidden in the clasp. The downside is that you pay 102USD for the bracelet to get the half link.
Another solution is to punch a new micro adjustment hole on the Tudor clasp.
A few have mentioned this solution, but this fellow enthusiast did it:
I'm also considering the possibility of integrating an aftermarket Rolex Submariner 93150 bracelet with the Tudor BB 58 end-links. Saw this solution on Rolex forum.
I hope this helps and feel free to ask for additional details.
