    My husband threw away the instructions for his new watch. I can't figure out how to take some of the brackets off of the band, to make it fit him. If someone could tell me how I would appreciate it.

Holding the Watch in your hand facing you, turn it to it's left side. You'll see a succession of small holes in the links wherein lies a removable hinge-pin, locate the link(s) you need to remove, and remove the pin in that link, and then the pin below it to pull the link. To do this, you need either a jewelers punch, (like a small awl, to push the pins out) or fashion one from a pair of pliers (small vise-grips work great for this) and a piece of a safety pin (cut a shank out of the back side of a pin to get a straight stiff shaft.)
When you pull your first pin out, put the watch on and gauge the size you need to make it.
once you have pulled the pins, note that one end of the pin is larger, and when reassembling everything, just take mind to put everything back in the same fashion as the disassembly process.
you'll have to push the pin in flush with either the flat side of some pliers or the side of a table, just make sure they go flush...
hope this helps, thanks for reading!

How do I make the watch band smaller?


to adjust the size of your wrist...eat chocolate!
most watches with linked wristbands require the links removing.(small pins to b e pushed out) the type with the chain links usually have a clamp to release to slide the clasp up the band. the instructions should be with the watch manual. or ask a jeweler to help.

please post pictures if need more help so i can see the design

Can the plastic band be opened? It won't fit over


you can ask for the instruction from the authorized retailer of your watch even that you don't have any proof that you don't purchase it to them. being the dealer of the watch brand it is their responsibility to assist all customers that need to know everything about the watch they selling.. now don't hesitate to ask them..

I need new band


If you need a new band for RADO watch, you can pop in any watch shop and choose whichever band you like. The only thing you have to remember is; get the right size. Right size for you watch is the size between lugs in millimetres. Lugs are the things where the band gets attached to the watch. Measure that distance - this is the size of band you are looking for.If you are after original Rado band, then you will have to pop into your nearest Rado dealer shop and order it. The real thing will be far more costly.

Shorten the band on a Mossimo watch


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.

  • 2

    Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.

  • 3

    Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.

  • 4

    Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.

  • 5

    Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).


  • Best regards. Jewel

    mcdevito75 here, Ebay is a great place for your watch band, but you should know the watch band size in MM, or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area.

    Getting analog part of Mossimo watch to start


    FIXED!!!

    As it turned out these Mossimo ANA/DIGI watches use two different batteries, one for the digital part (big) and other for the analog mechanism (small).

    Have the watch serviced to change the second battery and VOILA!!!!

    Enjoy!

    Mossimo watch


    Try this:
    http://www.webjeweller.com/jewellery/removelinks.shtml

    For my band, the trick is to use a 1mm jewler's screwdriver and push against the pin in the link. The pins exit in the direction of the arrow on the link (and go back in opposite direction).

    Pushing on the pin can be tricky. If you slip you'll stab your finger with the screwdriver. It takes a little more pressure than you think, but once the pin moves it comes out easily.
