The Black Bay?How are you liking it? I’m thinking about the black dial version.
It didn’t quote the message, I wanted to ask about the Seiko 5 GMT.The Black Bay?
I love it. Gets more wrist time than the Speedy these days.
Most people complain about the size, or rather the thickness. And it is thick, but that sort of stuff does not really bother me.
However if you do have to wear a dress shirt it is difficult to fit under the cuffs.
That and people don't like the fake rivets on the bracelet. Again, those don't really bother me. And as you see above, there are things you can do about that lol.
I just use a basic spring bar tool.
In fact, the one that came with my Speedy.
It is not too tricky once you get the hang of it.
Just take your time and be careful. Some people will even tape the lugs to protect them.
If you have another watch, you can also do some practice on that one.
Once you get the hang of it, it only takes about a minute.
I change from the band to a strap of some sort on the Speedy almost weekly.
I’ll hold it like this and apply some pressure on the link between the lugs with my index finger so when the spring bar is retracted, the bracelet will just sort of pop up on the one side and then I’ll just slide out the spring bar and voila.
But I will say that getting the bracelet off the Tudor is a bit trickier than the Speedy, I think because of the way that one link that holds the spring bar is designed.
Or maybe I just need more practice on that watch in particular lol.
I have been thinking about picking up some spring bar tweezers though.
I've never used them, but seems like it would make it easier.
Can be pricey though...
