Dish soap and a toothbrush. You can clean it while stretching it. A cheap ultrasonic cleaner works great. You can buy a cheap ultrasonic cleaner at a drug store. You still have to stretch it to get in the tight spots.

If you can take the band off the watch do it, if you can't that's ok you just have to be a little more careful. I take a 1/2 cup of HOT water, 1/4 cup of Mr. Clean, and 1/4 cup of ammonia. Hook you watch on a cup so it isn't able to slip into the cup, and let it sit for about 10 min. Take a tooth brush and spread open the links and brush away! Make sure after you brush it that you rinse off REALLY good because if you don't you will find that dust and whatever will stick to the band becuse it will be sticky because of the cleaner. If you find you have anymore problem please feel free to ask. I have been cleaning jewelry , watchbands, and watch cases likr this for twenty years , it works well.

Removing wrist band


You can remove any watchband using a pocket knife trying to get between the back side of the band and the watch. Gently pry sideways until you see the spring-loaded end coming out. Flex the band back from the watch as you do this action.

My fossil Stella clear watchband needs cleaning how do you get this clean?


Unfortunately it is a part of wear and tear of the that material. The longer you used it with an acidic sweat it will continue to discolor. Try washing it with mild soap and water after every used. That's also my problem before with my watch.

How to shorten watchband


It all depends on the style of the band.
Go to where the links are all the same size, not tapered at all.
If you have a stretch band, along the edge, unbend the flaps that hold what look liks tiny staples. Pull out what you need removed and put the remailing pieces together.
If you have a non-stretch band, grab a SMALL paperclip about 1/8" from the end. Along the edge of the band you will see the pins that hold it together. Have someone hold the band with the bottom edge of the pin you are removing, over an opening. Between 2 hardback books wirks great. Tap the pliers to drive the pin partially out. Pull it out and do the same to remove as many links as needed. Put the pins back in, in the same direction they came out, from the same side they came out.

Changing a Rolex metal watchband to a leather watchband


Put the watch face down and examine the point where the band is connected to the watch case. you will find two holes and through them you will see sprinbar ends insertyed into watch case lugs. Take the tiny screwdriver and push the springbar end inwards,then do the same at the other lug reaching them through those holes.
Then repeat the same at the other end of the band.
Measure the distance between watch case lugs- this will be exact size for your new leather band.

Pin on the watchband is protruding


No need to buy a new watchband friend, you need a new pin. The spring inside the pin has lost its elasticity ... you won't spend a fortune ....

Please rate the resolution.

Shorten watchband


I have a similar watch and removing the links are not easy. There are pins in certain links that have arrows on the inside of the band. I used a push pin to remove the pins in the direction of the arrows. Snip the end of the push pin with a wire cutter or pliers so that it fits into the hole and tap the top of the push pin with a small hammer until the other end of the pin is exposed enough to extract it with a set of needle nosed pliers. Repeat for other side of link. When the pin is extracted, twist the link inward and it should snap out.
Remove the link and reverse the procedure, placing the pin in the opposite direction as it was extracted. You may have to tap it gently with the push pin and hammer to get it to go into the holes flush.
It takes a little while and some patience, but if you can get someone to hold the band for you while you tap the pin, it will be easier. Also, if you remove the spring loaded pin from the band fastener so the band can be laid out straight, it will also be easier. Good luck!
