Still summer weather where I am so rocking the Sequential Evo πŸ˜‰. Anyone else still have on a summer combo ?

Finally corrected the uncomfortable deployant buckle situation with a make-shift Panerai style buckle, similar to what Marius (Cosmopak) did with his Evo Perpetual, until I can replace it with a MB&F buckle and/or until my bespoke velcro straps arrive. For those who do not know, Max uses the same deployant buckle which comes with Richard Mille pieces. It is a spring loaded friction fit deployant buckle of high quality BUT sadly it pinches and doesn't sit comfortably for smaller wrist sizes. 😒 

LOVE LOVE LOVE this Sequential Evo but the bespoke metal strap insert makes it impossible to change straps unless you have them custom made and either sacrificing an OEM strap for the metal insert or 3D printing the insert (hopefully). We will see how that goes as I might be the first and/or most foolish to try πŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ™Š.

Not the first strap arrangement to have this problem; undoubtedly won't be the last

I have experienced the same with IWC Ingeniuer using that metal piece at the case end of the strap. Best of luck on this... the watch looks fantastic. Cazalea

Good solution for now

Tour de Force watch! I would wear that on a few pieces of twine if I had to ;-)

Looks Incredible!!!

An amazing complication and design. Bravo! Tho yes, agreed Max may want to seek out a strap / buckle stylist. The rubber strap is great here imho, though some of the other models with leather-type... not so much. Also have a small-ish wrist, so yes i unde... 

Thanks and agreed with the slight change in strap length, placement, etc...but I still think it is a flaw in the deployant buckle design itself since it is not as curved as others out there...

For now I still think a tang style buckle might be the most comfortable option until a velcro strap option becomes available or if I can successfully order one from a fee bespoke artisans I know πŸ˜‰

Ahhhh i see. Interesting.

The PAM pin-buckle with screw-in bar is a great safe choice. Well done πŸ‘ I keep a few 'extra' PAM pins here for the same comfort (and security) reason.

That Is A Stunner...

... I mean a STUNNER. As in FANTASTIC. AMAZING. BEAUTIFUL. Glad you got the strap sussed.

I also have had fit problems with some deployant clasps. Some symmetrical and asymmetrical clasps and the solution has often been mix and match of strap lengths to center the clasp

under my wrist in order to have the watch itself centered on the top of my wrist (and improve comfort). Very nice watch though!

No doubt!

A lot of people have complained about that MB&F clasp!

 By: patrick_y : September 19th, 2023-16:17
Glad you found a nice solution! Instead of just complaining, you put your head on it and found a solution!

Fantastic chronograph. Unfortunately the clasp has not been so

 By: hora12reborn : September 19th, 2023-17:15
technically thought through than the movement.

Glad you found a temporary solution before the OEM buckle arrives

 By: Cozmopak : September 19th, 2023-17:24
Absolutely stunning watch

A velcro would look amazing and perfect for this LM my friend πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ˜˜
