    Help! Changing GW-500A Band

    Hi, I've got a G-Shock GW-500A [2688] with a cracked strap. It looks like the band is held on by flat head screws, but when I turn the screw on one side of the band, the screw on the opposite side of the band turns.
    So I guess its some sort of bar and not a screw, but how do I release it or undo it so I can replace the band? I'd appreciate your suggestions. Thank you.

    You need two screwdrivers, one on each end. Hold one end screwdriver steady and rotate the other to unscrew.

    And a very steady hand as I found. And something to hold the watch body is managed between my knees but a small table clamp with padding will be employed next time .

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Yeah. Snapped the screw trying to loosen it.
    Fortunately I have a replacement.
