Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and to collecting and recently purchased a handsome black 18mm leather strap stamped "Longines" from [email protected] yahoo.com.

It was promptly shipped and I like the quality of the leather for a reasonable price too.

Can anyone offer me a suggestion for removing a gold-toned Spiedel band and replacing it with this new strap? It is for a well-worn Longines Automatic Ultra Chron 10K GF circa late 1960's.

I have some inexpensive watch tools to change the band.
