I'm leaning toward picking up an Aquis and am having a hard time deciding whether to go with the bracelet or rubber strap. I'm wondering how small a wrist the bracelet can be sized to accommodate (i.e. maximum number of links that can be removed). I like my watches to fit snug, but only have about a 6.75" wrist. I'm leaning toward the bracelet, but if I couldn't achieve a snug enough fit, I'd just go with the strap.

i got a 7.25" wrist and the rubber at the minimum just fits, any smaller and it would need to be cut to size.
so if you're one of those who dont like any cutting done, then guess bracelet is your only choice.

Hi again Bryan, I've got a ProDiver Date on rubber and had to have that cut to size by the AD when I got it. It's not difficult to do by any means so strap or bracelet - the choice is yours

Thanks, guys. I figured the strap would need to be cut down to size, which is fine with me. I just didn't want to be in a situation where I bought the bracelet version and was unable to achieve the desired fit, even after removing all the links. Based on sticky's experience, it sounds as though I'm in luck!

please note that the new strap on the Aquis doesnt need to be cut, unlike earlier ORIS straps. Its a very high quality piece.

I've got 6 1/2" wrists and wear my Aquis on its bracelet. You'll have no problem getting the bracelet sized to your liking.

I have similar sized wrists. You should have no problem with either band after sizing. The micro adjustments on the clasp make it easy to get a perfect fit on both. I bought both bands, thinking I would keep it on rubber most of the time, but actually found the bracelet to be more comfortable. Plus, the bracelet looks amazing.
