I feel like this is a probably dumb question but I can't find anything on it. There is plenty of informatin about replacing bands on watches with spring bars. But I'm a little bit at a loss as to how to do it with some of these vintage women's wataches that don't seem to use them.
For example, I have the watch attached which simply seems to have a bar that appears to be part of the watch.
Other watches I own seem to have a hood over this bar that allows attachment of a band:
Unfortunately there is no apparent way to me to get the band off without removing the hood. And there doesn't appear to be a way to get the hood off without basically unbending it around the bar.
Is there something I'm missing? Becasue basically it looks to me like the band is impossible to change without ruining the old band. And in the case of watch number one, I'm stuck without a hood. Is there some place to order more?
