Invicta Watch Problem

I recently bought one of these off Amazon. I'm a watch wearer and love the color scheme:

https://www.amazon.com/Invicta-Colecci% ... 390&sr=8-3

So now I it arrived, I'm thinking about sending it back. Why?
BECAUSE I CAN'T TAKE IT OFF.

Since it's a diver watch it has this extra clasp that folds over. Undoing this clasp with a fingernail is impossible.
I literally have to wedge a paperclip under there.

I'm thinking about heading over to the local watch repair place to see if there's anything that can be done. But I find the entire situation bizarre. Can you imagine being in the airport and trying to tell the TSA agent you can't remove your watch??

Update: I took the watch to the local watch repair place and they were able to loosen the latch just enough that I can actually open it myself now. So I'm keeping the watch.

Remember the divers watch protection only last a year to 18 months after which you have to get the rubber in the watch replaced.
