    Question about the Sub 300T re-issue bracelet

    Much as I enjoy wearing the 'bicycle-chain' bracelet, I was thinking of trying on the black strap that came with the watch.
    However the screws at the lugs gave me a rather hard time.
    Firstly, they seemed to rotate freely when I attempted to unscew them.
    Then I used the extra (smaller) screwdriver supplied as a counterhold, but to no avail.
    The screws are very tight or the screwdrivers don't do what they're supposed to do or ... I don't know what I'm doing, lol.
    Anyone care to offer some insight?

    Cheers

    You need to heat the screws to soften the thread locking material that was applied during mfg. Try hot water, or a hair dryer as those usually do the trick.
