Omega Seamaster Bracelet Question

Hi, does anyone know if it easier to add or remove links from the new Seamaster Professional 300m? The old bracelets were notoriously difficult to remove or add links and the pins often bent when they were removed. It was also a job that was done at a jewellers and not at home.

They seem to have gone to a screw and pin system, so are the pins easier to remove and can it be done at home?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it can be done at home. But a word of caution - the screws are the smallest little specks of metal, they are very easily lost if you drop them. How do I know that...

Hi many thanks for that. Is it possible to buy replacement screws? I tried eBay but could seem to find them.

Anyone know what size the screws are?

Thanks again.

Size? Microscopic.

You can try Otto Frei, but I haven't checked so I don't know if they have those exact screws.

I have now bought the watch and the links are very easy to remove. Simply remove the screw and the link bar slides out (might need a little tap)

Can easily be done at home
