Default Dont forget the loctite!

Had this issue with my tisell a few years ago and had forgotten about this issue.
While I really love threaded links, I forgot to give my Phoibos wavemaster's bracelet a good once over with the jewlers screwdriver before wearing it. Oops....
Thankfully I noticed it before it fell off.
Had to dig the bottle of loctite blue out of my watch box.

This same issue cost me a very special clasp on of my watches whilst on vacation. One of the custom made screws dropped out in a taxicab (I think) and I had to write it off. This is actually a very good tip!

ouch...i was fortunate that i caught this one. i noticed while getting groceries at Bravo this morning. the screw was actually completely unthreaded from the other side of the link. if i had swung my hand around wrong it might have popped right off. its not going anywhere now.
im a little surprised companies dont use something like loctite when they assemble the bracelet by default so this doesnt happen.

As they say, just be sure to use the Blue and not the Red for this if you ever expect to remove the screws again.

I had screws come out of one of my metal bands, probably because I tend to take the watch off and play with it. I tightened the screws down but was unsure of how easy to take off - do you just put a drop on top of the screw or actually on the threads before screwing them back in?

Directly on the threads and/or on the interior threads, just make sure they're free of any oil or lubricant first.

So it's either the blue or the red pill?
