While maintaining the pressure exerted on the movable member 20, the user can then slide it forward or backward in the rack until positioning the first pins 26 in front of a new notch 27a of the rack 27. The user can then release the pressure exerted on the movable member 20. Under the action of the spring stops 30, the first pins 26 are pushed into the notches 27a of the rack, thus blocking any movement of the element. mobile relative to the lid.
  • Ainsi, le dispositif selon l'invention permet un réglage fin et aisé de la longueur du bracelet. Thus, the device according to the invention allows a fine and easy adjustment of the length of the bracelet.
  • Le fermoir 1 comportant le dispositif selon l'invention a été décrit à titre, d'exemple uniquement. Le présent dispositif pourrait équiper d'autre type de fermoir destiné ou non à des bracelets de montre. The clasp 1 comprising the device according to the invention has been described by way of example only. The present device could equip other types of clasp for or not to watch straps.
  • Dans la forme d'exécution précédemment décrite, la crémaillère 27 ainsi que le rail 29 et le rail de guidage 31 et les différents trous borgnes destinés à recevoir des barrettes télescopiques sont directement usinés dans le couvercle 2 du fermoir. En variante, ces différents éléments pourraient être rapportés sur un cadre qui serait lui-même disposé dans le couvercle 2. Les autres éléments constituant le dispositif de réglage selon l'invention et le fonctionnement de cette variante sont en tout point similaire à ceux décrits ci-dessus.In the embodiment described above, the rack 27 and the rail 29 and the guide rail 31 and the various blind holes for receiving telescopic bars are machined directly in the lid 2 of the clasp. Alternatively, these different elements could be reported on a frame which would itself be arranged in the cover 2. The other elements constituting the adjustment device according to the invention and the operation of this variant are in all respects similar to those described herein. -above.
  • En variante également, le couvercle 2, la crémaillère 27 ainsi que le rail 29 et le rail de guidage 31 et les différents trous borgnes destinés à recevoir des barrettes télescopiques pourraient être réalisés d'une pièce par injection de métal.Alternatively also the cover 2, the rack 27 and the rail 29 and the guide rail 31 and the various blind holes for receiving telescopic bars could be made in one piece by metal injection.
  • Par crémaillère fermée, on entend une creusure usinée dans une paroi latérale intérieure du couvercle ou d'un cadre logé dans le couvercle. Elle est dite fermée car vue en plan cette creusure est fermée sur elle-même de sorte qu'une tige s'étendant dans cette creusure puisse être déplacée d'un cran 27a à un autre en passant dans la partie basse de la creusure mais que cette tige ne puisse pas s'échapper de cette creusure autrement que par un retrait suivant une direction perpendiculaire à la face interne latérale du couvercle ou du cadre.Closed rack means a hollow machined in an inner side wall of the lid or a frame housed in the lid. It is said closed because in plan view this hollow is closed on itself so that a rod extending in this recess can be moved from one notch 27a to another while passing in the lower part of the recess but that this rod can not escape from this hollow other than by a withdrawal in a direction perpendicular to the inner side of the lid or frame.
  • Il est évident que les divers dispositifs de fixation et de liaison décrit ci-dessus comme les première, deuxième, troisième et quatrième barrettes télescopiques ainsi que les première, deuxième, troisième et quatrième tiges de fixation pourraient être remplacés par tout autre dispositif approprié.It is obvious that the various fixing and connecting devices described above as the first, second, third and fourth telescopic bars as well as the first, second, third and fourth fixing rods could be replaced by any other suitable device.
  • On réalise ainsi un dispositif de réglage de la longueur du bracelet qui permette un réglage aisé et précis de la longueur du bracelet, de manière sûre puisqu'il n'y a aucun risque de démontage intempestif du dispositif, la crémaillère étant fermée. De plus, le présent dispositif s'adapte à tout type de bracelet et/ou de fermoir pour bracelet connu et est invisible une fois le bracelet porté, ne nuisant pas à l'esthétique dudit bracelet.This provides a device for adjusting the length of the bracelet that allows easy and accurate adjustment of the length of the bracelet, in a safe manner since there is no risk of inadvertent disassembly of the device, the rack being closed. In addition, the present device adapts to any type of bracelet and / or clasp known bracelet and is invisible once the bracelet worn, not detracting from the aesthetics of said bracelet.
