I’d like to replace the bracelet on this old Seiko Lord Matic with a new leather strap, but I’m having the darndest time getting the bracelet off the center “lug.” Anyone seen something like this before or have any suggestions as to how I get this off? I’ve tried pushing around inside those horizontal slats, but to no effect. If there is some sort of release mechanism in there, I’m sure it’s long rusted.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
