Just and FYI for anyone who has had those little annoying watchband or watch screws come loose.
Have you tried to buy tiny screwdrivers?
Have you have used your fingernail?
Took it to a jewelry store for help?
Well, I have found the answer!
A damned Q-tip. Yes, simply get a Q-tip, press it into the screw and turn. It is that simple. The cotton catches inside the groove, you simply press into the screw and spin the Q-tip. Works with glasses and any other tiny screw I have tried.
Just a public service announcement.

I'm a watch collector [ I have over 40 ] and I've never had screws just fall out like that. I've popped the pins on a wristband, but that's it. A little Green Loctite will hold them in, but allow you to remove them if you need to adjust the band later. Do Not Use Red Loctite. You'll never get it apart again.
