    Removing Stowa strap?

    What is the best way to remove the strap from the MO LE? For some reason, it is proving more difficult than other straps and since I don't want to ruin it, I figured I would ask.

    FYI, I am using a simple strap removal tool (pronged end) that came with a new alligator strap I have.


    My little watch collection:
    Dornblüth & Sohn Regulator
    Sinn EZM-1 LE
    Stowa 80th Anniversary Marine Original (MOLE)
    Alpina Avalanche Extreme Regulator PVD 42mm

    Gone but not forgotten:
    Schauer Kulisse Edition 12
    Stowa Marine Original LE II
    Stowa Marine Original
    A few not really worth mentioning!

    Try to push back the strap at the lug end to reveal as much of the spring bar as possible. Having a good spring bar tool is helpful. I place blue painters tape on the lugs to protect it during this process.
