8: On one side of your watch you will need to connect six chain
links and on the last link you will connect your clasp to the final loop.
Obviously, you will connect the clasp before you wrap the last loop in the
chain closed, then wrap that loop closed.
Step 9: On the opposite side of the watch, you will need to connect seven links to the watch face. The final link in the chain will become the catch for a lobster style clasp like the one show in the picture at right.
When that is completed, try your new watch on. You may want to adapt this design by adding or subtracting a link or two. The 13 links plus a lobster clasp used in the watch above right are about the correct length for a normal 7" wrist.
The prior instructions are predicated in having a loop on either side of your watch. The same chain will work for watch faces without the chain as long as they are configured like the watches shown here. In the watch shown at right, the hole is side ways, orientated parallel to the 9-3 axis of the watch. (This watch is shown larger than its actual size for clarity.) In the watch shown at left, you can see how we have connected this chain to the watch. Because the width of the hole is similar in size to the width of the chain, we were not able to use the same size link as the rest of the chain to connect through the hole in the watch. We needed a larger loop so that it would pass through the hole in the watch. Please visit the next page to view our instructions for making this link with two different sized loops.
