    Hi,
    I'm possibly buying a secondhand Kirium, and have had emails and photos from the seller concerning the size and whether it would be a suitable size for my wrist. The seller is selling it as it is too small for his wrist and doesn't want to pay for a new link.
    I measured my wrist which was 16.4cm, and he measured his mothers wrist which was 16cm, and took a photo of it on her wrist which looks as though it would easily fit my wrist with quite a bit of 'slack'. The other two photos are from the seller as well. I asked if it had any 'micro' adjusters', and he sent me a photo of what I think are the micro adjusters. An old Tag I had several years ago had quite a few more micro adjusters, but this watch looks like it only has two. I've attached the three photos that the seller has sent me, hope you can see them. Does anyone know if it can be made any smaller, as I don't want to buy it if it will be loose on my wrist as I like a watch to sit snug on my wrist.
    Regards,
    Simon

    There are 2 links on the 6 o'clock side that can be taken out and a 1/2 link on the 12 o'clock side it seems.

    I can't tell if it has a micro adjustment.

    But as YY77 just mentioned, you can remove a link or two if you want it to be snug. It's easy to do if you've got the tools or any watch jeweler can do this for you.

    The links with pin holes in them can be removed. E.g.

    If you buy it, you should also ask the seller to include any spare links.

    So if you ever sell it, someone with a larger wrist can have it resized by adding the spare links back.

    Wow, I have never noticed this on any of my Kiriums. It is a very small adjustment though...

    It's like a 1/3rd link.

    Well I'm seeing 2 full links on 6 and a half link on the 12 side in the OP, if you compare with mine which has only the connecting link on 6 and one and a half on 12;

    where are you seeing a connecting link on 6? You have one full link and one half link, like the OP.

    Regarding the connecting link referring to the one that is part of clasp on mine.

    If you count the links the OP has 6 full links (of which 2 removable) on the 6 side, mine has 4 and on the 12 side he has 5 ¹/² vs 6 ¹/².
