How to Use the Rolex GlideLock Clasp: Step-by-Step Gallery & Guide

First, open up the clasp by removing the safety catch.

As you look under and inside the clasp, you'll see notches in 2mm increments.

The Submariner will adjust up to 20mm, while the Deepsea and Sea-Dweller can go up to 26mm.

Find the adjustable side of the bracelet.

Pop the adjustable side of the bracelet out from the clasp.

Let it rest at the 45 degree angle and push in or pull out until you find the notch you need.

Clip the bracelet back flush into the clasp to lock down the bracelet.

You can continue to readjust the size as necessary. Snap the bracelet to relock.


The Glidelock Fine-Adjustment System is a new feature designed by Rolex to allow you to quickly adjust the bracelet size of your Submariner (by 20mm), Deepsea, or Sea-Dweller (up to 26mm).
