I had a go anyway, cos I'm a bloke and have little use for instructions, but realised that I don't have the required third arm needed to fit the bloody thing! What tools do I need to make changing it easier?
    There maybe another reason you are having issues with this bracelet. On Bremont watches you need different end pieces for the bracelet. So you need different ends for S2000,S500, ALT1 & Solo. I hope that helps.

    Outstanding video Jeremy!

    I would add two pieces of advice:

    1. Use masking tape to completely cover the lugs - maybe I'm too obsessive about this, but I don't want scratches on the backs of my lugs!

    2. Use the date pusher to remove the pin at the clasp before adding/removing the bracelet. Then fit/remove the two sides of the bracelet separately, and reconnect the clasp. This makes it much easier to maneuver (as compared to fitting the bracelet with the clasp engaged.)

    Best of luck OP!

    Use the Date pusher? Sounds expensive! You can buy little tools, or ends for springbar tools, that are pretty much a pin with a blunt end, especially for pushing those pins out.

    Thanks for the reply, but I have solo ends and alt ends, it's my crack handedness that's the issue!

    Cheers Tony, your second point makes a lot of sense as the weight of the bracelet can make it quite tricky to manoeuvre between the lugs whilst holding in both ends of the spring bar! Will have a go later (once the children are in bed, don't want them learning any new words......)

    I may have used the wrong term (date pusher) - I just meant the pointy-end of the Bremont springbar tool!

    But how many holes have you got in your thumb when the tool slips? Come on own up we have all stabbed ourselves! I usually do it most times I change out a strap - sometimes you just gotta love a nato!
