    Changing Prodiver Strap

    Hey there Stowa friends!
    I just bought a used Prodiver. I've been waiting for the opportunity to try one of these great watches out for awhile and I finally have one! First impressions after a few days of ownership are great. Seems to be a VERY well built, quality watch.

    Right now it's on the supplied rubber strap but I'm really wanting to try it on the bracelet. However, my girlfriend and I tried to do the swap earlier this weekend and backed out b/c I was getting kind of nervous that I would mess something up.
    Is there a tutorial for swapping straps/bracelets for the Prodiver???
    Anyone know where I can get a good set of quality screwdrivers for the job that are small enough?
    Thanks in advance!

    I was hoping someone with a prodiver would chime in, but there were a couple of threads on the subject, here is one.

    I had a set of precision screwdrivers, from something like I guess HomeDepot in US, they work a charm. Just take one screwdriver to each end of the bar, hold one firm and unscrew with the other. Tape the lugs if you are afraid you'll slip and scratch them.

    Sometimes screws are secured with LOCTITE :oops:

    You have to use acetone or hot air (hairdryer) to loosen up that chemical aid before unscrewing,

    Thanks for the tips!
    I ordered a set of screwdrivers and a "third hand" tool from ofrei last night so hopefully that'll do the trick.
