    D-Date Replacement Bars

    Hi,

    Not posted in a long while, but browsed often .. anyhow, I've a yellow dialed D-Date, but when trying to remove one of the bars (so as to replace the strap) the screw turns but just clicks & does not undo.

    Does anyone know a way to remove the bar? Or will I have to cut through & get a replacement? And if this is the case is it easy to get replacements? I did contact Anonimo directly (about 3 months ago) but have yet to hear anything back.

    Many thanks /vince ..

    SOrry to hear that... is very hard to get those out, they come so tight and the heads are not deep enough.

    In order to succeed you need this:

    1 Patience
    2 Patience
    3 Patience

    Is very tricky at first but you need to get a pair or screwdrivers 1.4 mm and strat trying to get the screw out... one side is the screw and tthe other one is the lugbar.

    Again patience... and your are not going the first one making damage to the screws... Good Luck !

    Hi VinceR,
    I'm not sure if you contacted Anonimo directly, but I just received 2 spare screwbars for my Anonimo Militare Automatico from Stoll & Co in the US (I'm in Canada) within a couple of weeks. This was actually including time for them to order directly from Anonimo in Italy since it wasn't a stocked part. All I did was send them an email, with a few pics of the watch, model number, etc. and they sent back a quote.

    As for the screwbar not coming out, I would think worst case you'll just need to cut it out (but wait for the replacements first). I actually had my wife hold the second screwdriver while I torqued out the screw. Definitely easier with another set of hands.

    Yep, you'll need two screwdrivers and preferably something that will hold the watch immobile like a good case holder. If the watch is not immobile you have to apply inward pressure as well as torque on the screws which can lead to slipping.

    I just got replacement screwbars from Stoll. At first I thought it was $15 per screw, but it is $15 for a single complete lugbar. Great service from Stoll!
