    Hey all, I just got this beauty in but I hate the rubber strap. How the heck do I get these pins to disengage? It's driving me mad! any help would be much appreciated.

    sometimes there are no shoulders on the spring bars. so a knife does work if thats all you have at your disposal. I use a fine blade bracelet sizing screwdriver to get at those. usually when I find those in a watch I'll replace them with pins with shoulders.

    I had the same problem with my SKX007, couldnt NOT get the bracelet off for love nor money, took me about an hour to get them springbars to disengage.
