I'm currently wearing my Squale 1545 militaire on a NATO because I can't adjust the bracelet. The links are secured by a screw pin that seems impossible to remove. I have the right size tool, but cannot remove them. After much cursing, I got one out, and noticed the threads had some sort of tape or loctite type stuff on them. Have any of you had this issue before and found an easy fix? I've tried hot water, it did nothing.
