well, my bubble was mildly burst today. i got a stowa pd 3 days ago and attempted to remove the bracelet springbars myself, but to no avail. so, i brought it to the local fink's jewelers (where i always go if i can't do it myself!) and had the watchmaker remove the bracelet for me. took 20 minutes and i ran home to put the head on a nato . when i attempted this there were 2 screws in the baggie holding the bracelet and springbars. but, one of the screws definately did not belong!!! i tried it anyways, out of sheer hope,desperation,whichever...with no luck . i called the fink's number and of course, the watchmaker was out to lunch. i called 1 hr later and he told the girl i was speaking to he was still trying to find it...and he still is at this moment . luckily, i had a set of fat springbars from my os300 and these fit the stowa perfectly and i've been able to go about my day since. now, i'm just venting here, but seriously, i just want to know how to go about getting another springbar screw for my pd...please if anyone knows how to do this, please pm me. i'm gonna email stowa also to see how much this is going to cost. i know the watchmaker is busy, and otherwise, he did a good job. but, i would think he'd keep all the stuff for the same watch in the same pile. oh well, murphy's law man!
