    Removal of strap/band of MTG

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering whether any of you has previously removed the whole strap/band of the new MTG-S1000? I have a S1000BD, and I wanna remove its strap and replace it with the one on a S1000D, just a mix-and-match thing I've tried to remove the screws on the strap near the lug, but not successful. Just wanna see if any of you has any experience on doing this. Tx.

    David

    I haven't changed the strap on the MTG-S1000, but if the screws on the strap are anything like the ones on the MTG-900/910 and GW-500, there's a specialty tool for that!

    I wish I'd known about the "screwdriver block" before I struggled with the screws and internally threaded posts a couple of years ago -- both the block and the somewhat goofy screws are shown in the second picture in this post: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/wha...ml#post7512230

    (There's also a link to that tool in that thread. )
