Re: Replacement for the folding clasp
Go to this link and identify your closest retailer.
They should stock many items and be able to get all others if still in stock.
If not then most jewelers could make one up, perhaps as good as the original, but i would expect it to be quite pricey.
Hope this helps :)

On the back of the bracelet you will see arrows. This is the direction to push
out the pins between the links. This is best done on a folded towel to prevent
You need a fine watchmakers screwdriver to gently push out the pins.
Remove the excess links, reconnect and push the pins back in the same direction
as they come out. If you need more than one link out then do it evenly at each
side of the clasp.
Take care in case any
tiny spring collars fall out of the centre or side of the link. make sure these
are put back as they hold the pin in tightly.
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.
Your watch has double folding clasp and it is opening by pulling bracelet exactly in the middle of clasp. Some clasps are very stiff, so, use a bit of force to open it. Here is the link where you can see how the opened clasp looks: http://www.amazon.com/Just-Bling-Ladies-JB-6210-Diamond/dp/B002JPK310
The newer straps on TAG are generally wider than the professional series and the cost of a new genuine TAG heuer clasp or bracelet may easily exceed the costof buying an entire watch of that series used.
I recommend searching for an after-market strap/ buckle usuing your case back numbers as the search criteria.
Sometimes Rolex bracelet clasps are very tight and this only shows the quality of the watch.
Don't be afraid to pull the clasp hard enough to open it- nothing will brake as Rolex is designed for quite hard use.
If you can't do it by hand, try to use flat butter knife end as a lever.
Hi lovingdesert ,the only thing you do is go to a service center for watch,if they have clasp like of your Anne Klein,maybe they have an extra. sometimes customer leave thier adjusted clasp. or go to Anne Klein site,and order an extra clasp.
The only thing you do is go to service center,maybe they have an extra clasp.Somtimes customer adjusted the size of thier bracelet and when ok they leave their udjusted clasp.That's why some service center had an extra clasp.
You will have to get a complete clasp assembly, which will have to be ordered from the factory that makes that model. If the clasp assembly is not available, A jeweler might have that part or be able to repair it for you.
