    How to change this strap (weird spring bars) [PICS]

    Just bought a Pan *homage* and it seems to have strange spring bars. They don't appear to be screw ins, but don't appear to have a collar on the insides either? What gives?

    Could it be a "drift pin" ? Have to tap it out ?

    Are they just push-out, non-shouldered spring bars with drilled lugs?

    Does it come with a quick release mechanism? Check whether there are push buttons on the bottom of the lugs.

    I find the shape of the case highly suspicious. Look more like a counterfeit to me.

    They mimic the current Panerai design with a push-out pin.

    Is there a little button under the lugs?




    The bar might look like this.



    Also might be shoulder less spring bars in which case use a pin to push the end of the bar and pop it out.

    Yup, little button is there. Never seen that type of release before. Thank you.
