I think maybe we're all too familiar with the little old watchmaker image, loupe in right eye with tiny tools at hand......The links that have the arrows on them are indeed removable, it just takes more force than you might think. I'm in my office, so I used a pushpin (like for bulletin boards) and yep, it took more force than I thought, but the pin did come out the other side. A little tug with needle nose pliers and out it came. Remove link, repeat as necessary. Good luck

Is there a way to buy a band and change it on a Relic Wet?

SOURCE: Relic Wet watch

Like many other watches, the Relic Wet's battery can't be changed by the owner. It requires a Jeweler's wrench. Said wrench has prongs that fit into the 6 indentations on the back of the watch. The wrench is than used to unscrew the back plate, exposing the battery. Any reputable jewelry store will have one.

SOURCE: taking back off relic watch

If this is screwback, then there should be grooves for inserting case opener claws. For this yoy need case opener with interchangeable claws. You can buy it on ebay for approx. £7.00.
If the casebask is snap-on, then there shouldn't be any grooves, just small opening (lip) between the caseback and case. This is exact point where the watchmakers knife blade must be inserted and pryed up.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Go to the home site of the particular brand of watch you own. They should have the instructions for just about every watch configuration they manufacture.

SOURCE: how to set the time on relic watches

Not a bad design actually... just poor support since the instructions aren't even available on relic's website.

To set the time on the relic zr85048:
On the back of the watch, you will see a small cutaway or recess at the base of the crown. Insert a thumb nail, or some thin object under the crown and pull upward gently. Rotate the crown in the raised position to set the time. When finished, push the crown down. Done.

Where to find batteries for relic watches?


Relic watches use common internal movements and common batteries. They can be found at most drugstores, radioshack and jewelry stores. The trick is getting the back off without damage. Best bet, jewelry store.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT FOR RELIC WET WATCH ZR11657????


If you can, pop the back of the watch off, the battery will have 3 digits, and some letters, for example 375R, 325LRW, etc. the 3 digit number is the type of battery you need. If you cannot read the number, then typically, if you take out the battery, and you measure the width, and height of the battery, then find another battery with the same measurements, it will work, trust me.
i hope i helped!

Where can I purchase a crystal for a Relic Wet watch. Could you tell me the price.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
You can try contacting Relic at this link to see where to send for a replacement:
http://www.relicbrand.com/contact.htm
You can also try a local watchmaker. Depending on the crystal, most can be cut to fit and the price varies depending on the type of crystal, difficulty, etc. Take to a local shop for estimate.
Hope this helps!

What battery is the replacement? Relic ZR11622


Thank you FixYa.
Look on the back of the watch, or in the manual. If it doesnt say the battery size you will need to take to jeweler to have them measure the compartment to see what battery is needed. Sorry but no other way to know the battery needed.
Best regards. Jewel

How do you remove links from a Relic watch?


The ladies Relic used two different link systems. The easiest is the easy link system. This is a series of links that are put together with clasps. Simply undo the clasp of the number of links to remove. Its like a series of buckles. The second is a cotter pin or tension pin. You will need to push the pins out from the right end with a narrow punch. To tell the right end of a cotter pin look for the split at one end that makes it look like a screw. The opposite end will be smooth. The smooth end is the end you place your punch on and push the cotter pin out. To tell the right end of the tension pin look for the end that looks the snuggest and possibly has a dimple. The opposite end will look smaller in diameter. The smaller end is where you will place your punch to push out the pin.

Although this can be easy i always recommend going to a qualified watch maker/technician to insure you do not damage the band when removing the link.

How to make a relic watch bracelet a little smaller?


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.

Relic Watch Band Removal


If there are holes where the band connects to the watch and you are unable to push the spring bar out. There may be a bar connecting the band to the watch. Those are harder to push out.You might have to use a tool & hammer it with a gavel. Hope this helps

Watch Band Adjustment


I just got this watch for a gift and was able to remove links myself after doing some research. It really isn't difficult if you are patient, have a little mechanical experience, and have some very basic "tools" available.

Tools:
  • 1 push pin like you use on bulletin boards with a plastic head
  • 1 small hammer like a tack hammer
  • 1 pair of small pliers. Needle nose pliers would be best but I used diagonal wire cutters (be careful not to cut the link pin)
  • 1 small block of wood

Try to pick a well lit table in a room where you will not be interrupted.

Procedure:
1. Lay the watch and band sideways on the block of wood so that a pin for the link you would like to remove is just hanging over the edge of the block and pointing down. You need the block to brace the band while you hammer lightly on the pin. Someone to hold the watch in that position would be helpful, but it can be done alone. Only try to remove pins that have an arrow on the back of the band pointing at them. It does not matter with this watch band which way you go with the pin.
2. Carefully line up the push pin point with the top of the pin.
3. Slowly, lightly and carefully hammer the plastic side of the push pin so that the pin in the link just emerges from the band on the bottom side enough so that you can grab it with the small pliers.
4. Slowly and carefully pull the pin straight out with the pliers. You can pick up the watch from the block of wood to get a better grip. Be careful not to bend the pin since you will need to replace at least one of the pins you remove.
5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 until the band is the correct length. I needed to take out 3 so I removed 2 from one side and 1 from the other side of the clasp.
6. To fasten the watch back together again, gently insert the pin back in the hole it came from it. You will probably need to use the tack hammer to make the top of the pin flush with the band.
