Default 7625-8043

Another recent purchase. I quite like the braclet even though I dont think its genuine. It looks simple to remove...... but isn't. Anyone know how to get it off. I have tried sliding back the spring loaded whatsits. This allows greater access to the spring bar, but this does not seem to want to move.

The case's plating is in poor condition. Whats the usual done thing? Polish off the gold?
The crystal has a crack in it at 3 o'clock. And under that is some green discoloration.
Seems to have lost about 10 -15 seconds in the last 2 hours.

Thanks John. This is the watch.
It has spring loaded sliders that at a guess help tension up the bracelet against the spring bar/lugs.
The issue was the spring bars didnt have much travel i them and I couldnt get them out with out cutting them

Im now using the strap on another watch.

Anyway I am now having a similar issue with another recent purchase. It has 19mm lugs and I just cant slide back the spring bar to remove the strap which is slightly to small for me. dont want to resort to cutting them off as I did with the other.
The spring bars do not have ridges to grip onto.

You need a sharpened screwdriver say 1.5mm and a pair of gloves and patience.
The sharp end will bite better but, if you slip.....the gloves will help stop the blood!
Sometimes you can bend them out. Not recommended on this type of end link.
