    Can you convert Pin/Tube lug bars to push pin?

    I have a Raymond Weil 8400-ST-200001 Analog Digital watch, similar to the Tag Heuer Aquaracer Chronotimer. It has a very nice bracelet, yet for the sake of change I wanted to place my StrapSmith Alligator strap on it, the case has drilled lugs and I thought no problem! Not so fast, it is using the pin/tube variety to secure the bracelet to the case. I would rather have a push pin in their so I could have the choice of the bracelet, alligator strap or even a rubber strap on there. Is it possible to change this out without; A.) damaging the existing pin/tubes & 2.) Getting myself in a pickle where I no longer can place the bracelet back on. Thoughts, experience with this appreciated!

    Pictures of the case and strap will help you get answers. but in my experience unless you have the correct micro tools and knowledge to modify this, I would try to find other alternatives as the risk to permanent damage to the lugs or case would be considerable if you just start playing around with it.

    Maybe consider something like Speedbars, or quick change bars, like those that come on certain models like Christopher Ward?

    Good luck.

    Thank you Nokie! I agree 100% with you and I think it best to leave it as is at this point.
