thanks for the confirmation that is it the same width as the moonwatch. The price seems a tad high for a clasp, but what are we going to do....a price we pay for being early adopters......

So for the US, which part number it is so I can order? O117STZ013899

That looks great!

So now when they bracelet is extended, is the smaller connection area still covered by the top of the clasp?
I hope this picture answers your question. Left is not extended, right is extended.

Dang, thank you for the great reply and all of the pictures! I have to admit, I’m a little sad I couldn’t be the first to complete this haha. I’m guessing the attachment piece is probably just spring bars or screw bars, right?

I’m actually happy to hear the clasp itself is a little longer (figured it probably was). That should give me a perfect fit with the option of extending if needed. Thanks again!

I have no idea what the serial tz013110 refers to. What I do know though is that the last time I bought an Omega clasp, there was only one serial number for the clasp and another for the endlinks that I needed to fit the clasp to the 1861 bracelet. But this time there's no endlinks that came with it as far as I can tell.

I have a friend who is an Omega AD. I will ask him if he is able to look up specific parts numbers.

I think that should be it yes. Or just tz013899.

It does, I was mostly hoping to get rid of the weird gap here when extended.

I originally thought this gap was a bit odd too, but let’s be honest, how often are you flipping your wrist over to that extent where it’s even visible to the wearer. It’s an odd choice no doubt, and I’m sure Omega could have done better, but I think it’s a non-issue in real world use.

Dropping this in here. In Fratello's review they (being buddy buddy with Omega) expressly confirm that the new style claps will come as an upgrade to the moonwatch...eventually

"And yes, Omega will also come up with an upgraded clasp like this for the regular steel Speedmaster Professional watch. Current owners of that watch will be able to replace theirs as well with the new clasp. But all in due time, Omega could not give us a timeline for this upgrade. But at least you know it will be coming in the (near) future. " (Fratello)

I think Fratello has the width of the clasp wrong...did they physically measure it? Several people have already installed the Chronoscope clasp to their Moonwatch bracelet and it is is the same 15mm width.

I already ordered the parts (both O117STZ013899 & 118stz013110) with my AD, they actually called me today and told me it should be in next week. In addition, they told me if 118stz013110 is not needed, they can just return it to Omega at no cost to me. Didn't have to pay for the parts up front, they just special ordered it, and they will install it for me. I'll bring my extra links just in case it needs to be added after the new clasp is installed.

Lastly, WatchAdviser had an excellent video with Omega on the Chronoscope. I commented on why no quick release spring-bar on the ref and the moonwatch and he responded......."There will also be a solution coming to quick exchange the bracelets and straps..." Nice...:cool:(y)

Please do post pictures of the 118stz013110 if you can - whether it's needed or not. I am curious to see what it is. I have the feeling it may have been a standard Speedy link that was added for free after the OB's watchmaker scratched one of mine while replacing the clasp. It's the only thing that makes sense to me.

I would venture that the reported dimensions are accurate. Looks like the Chronoscope clasp overhangs the Moonwatch endlinks. That’s why the notched endlink does not show itself when extended using the Chronoscope clasp.
