Rubber strap...

I got this watch (for review) today. It is a Fortis and it is from the Fortis Colours collection. The first thing to do is to size the rubber strap. The right tools is important. 

The watch. I got the black version. 

The watch is modular. It is made up of two parts. The watch module.

The bezel/ strap module. 

Would be lovely to get this...

The tools... 

And the process begins....

Not bad for a watch in this price range to have a butterfly deployment. 

Disconnect the ends from the deployment. You can see the holes on the strap. These are there to help with the strap adjustment. You can measure your wrist and use that measurement and cut the rubber to the correct length. Or you can be like me and do this slowly. That means cutting the rubber at every notch, reattach the strap to the deployment and try out the watch to check fit. I also cut from both ends of the strap to make sure the deployment is still center. 

Each adjustment notch. 

From each end. I had to cut 4 pieces, or about a total of 12mm. 

All done. It is good that the deployment have 2 slots for further adjustments. 

On the wrist.
