I'm having a devil of a time trying to take off a band on one of my older watches - a Tourneau Safari Chrono.
It's a metal band with holes on the end, but there is no give, so I can't just push them in like a regular springbar. Also, there is zero room on the back to get the spring bar fork into to try and loosen it. I'm trying to figure out if there is another trick here.
Attached are some photos of the holes and the backside to explain my predicament. I've also ruled out that they are screws.
I've changed plenty of straps, just have never run into this before.
Thanks in advance for anyone that can help!
