You need to make sure that if you had the watch band adjusted they did not adjust it at the clasp. When you adjust the watchband links should be removed if you adjust it at the clasp the band keeps pulling open. When you open the clasp fully make sure the pins are on the end holes. If the pins are in the end holes then, the clasp is probably sprung somehow and you will need a new one or have a jeweler or watch repairman fix it! You may also be able to order a new clasp from manufacturer! Hope this helps!!
Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.
But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.
mcdevito75 here, Without seeing the watch it"s hard to tell, but I would figure the clasp could be repaired, but the cost may equal a new band and clasp. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area and compare repair cost of the clasp with that of a new band.
replace clasp is the best option..if clasp has 2 buttons on it these can be a easy fix but they always break again so i would replace clasp section or even all the bracelet for the watch .you will need model and serial numbers of the watch then try manufacture or ebay or a repairer
No but if this is a mens watch there might be a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust press the pin in the clasp and move the pin in or out depending on the position of the pin to make loose or tight.
You have two options and for both you need to find yewellery repair shop. Option1) Some jewellers sell NOS (New Old Stock) gold watch bands. If your vallet is thick enough for this option- shop around and buy one. Same jewellery repair shop will be able replace the old band with the new one, even if the band is soldered to watch case. Option2) In the same shop ask if they can built up (lengthen) the clasp. In this case you will spend less money, but you will loose on looks. Note: As mostly all gold watch bands are maschine made, it is allmost impossible to repair or lengthen them in a good looking way. Anyway- consult the jeweller first and see what he says. He may have some NOS witch is exactly matching your old watch band pattern. Good luck.
Yeh, just go to a watch repair shop and they will have the pin for your watch. If they don't, they are not a repair shop. Don't go to a jewelry store, they probibly won't have it. Look for a true watch repair shop in the phone book. Pins like that are in stock at any repair shop. Good Luck!!
