Can the pin in the Sport Band be exchanged without breaking it?

Thanks for the Apple Watch tear down, it was very fun to read.

I have a question: can the pin in the Sport Band be changed without breaking the band? I'd like to put a black pin in a white band.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Did you look at the tear down CAREFULLY? Yes the band appears to be very easy to switch out. There is not a traditional pin attaching the sport band to the watch. See he second picture in Step #5: Apple Watch Teardown

That's not the pin. The pin is the rounded metal bit that's inserted into the band holes when you fasten it around your wrist.

Please excuse my ignorance. I used to do watch repair when I owned a jewelry store but I guess times and terminologies change.
