Good idea, I might give that a go, although your pins have ledges that mine don't, I ended up using my pointy tweezers to grip them and pull down which worked well but I couldn't get the other end out, maybe due to the additional pressure due to the loose end of the spring being compressed against the case rather than in the hole.
When you do get them out, make sure to change the springbars, see the following.

Wow, thanks for that, glad I'm not the only one. Update: replacement spring bars are ordered, as is that nifty tool! :D

thought I'd better give an update on this. CW have been amazing and have sent out a replacement bracelet with the QR bars. Took about 5 minutes to remove a link from either side and then fit to my watch, no problems. I really like the leather strap that I bought with it but I think I'm going to stick with the bracelet for a while at least as it fits and sits a lot better than the strap, as I find myself fiddling with the sizing on the strap, but the bracelet is now set up to fit just right.
