Question about Fossil CH2331 Wrist Watch

Open Question

Pin popping out

I have a titanium Fossil Blue watch that I have had for roughly 2 years. Recently for some reason the pin keeps popping out stopping the watch. I can reset the time and push the pin back in and it takes right off. It happens at random, sometimes a few hours, sometimes a few minutes. This watch is still like brand new and wasn't cheap so I don't feel like I should have to buy a new one. The numbers on the back say TI-5067 with 260410 under that.

SOURCE: link pins for a womens Fossil watch

The only place you can get them is at a watchrepair. Sometimes I have found wierd sized link holes and have had to make my own pins. I just take a small nail and file it to the size I need. If you have a dremmil tool with a sandpaper attachment it is so much easier! Take a nail that is a little bit longer than the link is and sand down in a slow graduating cone shape, make sure to top of the nail is a little bit wider than the hole on the top of the link. Once you have that , put the smaller end in the link , line up the other link so that the pin goes into both links , and then tap it in. The pin should go into the bottom of the links. It might be good to do this on a piece of wood so that if the pin goes a little through the bottom, you don't damage anything. Try to make the pin as tight as you can, and than file (or dremmil) the top and bottom to the links size. If you still have problems please let me know, and maybe I can help you further. Good luck!!!!!

SOURCE: Where can I buy a

mcdevito75 here, You can but a new strap for your Fissil watch almost any where, Ebay, or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area as they would have the watch right there for a perfect fit. With anything else you"ll need to know the MM size of your strap. As the strap attaches to the watch case at the pins, simply measure in MM"s this is the size of the band you need, if you can only measure in Standard Measurement use the search online for conversion Inches to MM. But with a watch shop they do everything for you.

SOURCE: I just bought a Fossil sport watch, model CH2643.

On some watches the winder needs to be screwed (clockwise?) after pushing it in.

If this does not solve your problem, I suggest you go to your nearest dealer (for a list see the the Fossil website and go to the bottom of the screen and click on "store locator").

It may be that the watch is faulty and needs to be returned as a claim against the warranty.

Invicta watch instructions

Straps are usually held in place by two spring loaded metal pins between the two lugs on either side of the strap. Look at the ends near the lugs you should be able to see them, use a very small flate blade srewdriver to pull back on the pin and once you get it, it will pop out of the hole its in.

I need instructions on removing links from a Fossil Stella watch

you will need some sort of tool for a pin pusher to actually remove the pin from watch . It can be a strong needle of some sorts but I suggest getting an actual pin pusher to prevent from damaging the watch or hurting yourself.

if you look inside the watch band itself you will see on the links an arrow pointing one direction. That is the direction you need to push the pin since the pin head is larger and cannot be pushed the opposite direction .

On the side of the watch links you will see a small circle endented with a pin head. That is the link pin. Place your pin pusher or other similar sized object and with a small or jeweler hammer slowly and lightly hit the pin pusher down until pin comes out of opposite side , you can use tweezers or needle nose pliers to pull pin all the way out

There are some pin removers that screw also or just push down to pop pin .

Once out repeat process until you have removed enough links that watch fits comfortably. Then slide pins with head of pin entering the side where the arrow on back of link is pointing to. Once all the way in gently hammer rest of pin till flush with link .

Would you happen to have a watch band pin (link that attaches band directly to the watch casing) for a Fossil Blue Model AM-3515? Great difficulty locating one of these. Thanks for any help on this.

mcdevito75 here, This pin is called a spring bar, while I have many of these I would need the watch to match up the spring bar with the caseing. Best Bet, see a small watch repair shop in your area. Approx. Cost, $5.00 plus install.

Second hand doesnt move. The ''stop watch'' second hand moves instead of the ''main'' second hand. also the stopwatch feature doesn't work. My watch is a Fossil Blue Titanium model TI-5071

Sounds like a job for Fossil!

Go to their web site "" and at the bottom of their page is a menu which includes "store locator".

Is it worth getting repaired?

Take off the back of the watch. If the weighted wheel on the back is loose, tighten it carefully with a flathead screwdriver. If it's already tight, then you may need to dig deeper to find the problem, possibly located at the spring. I would recommend taking it in to watch repair if this is the case!

Trouble sizing Fossil Watch CH-2506

Those arrows inside of the watch band are showing direction for pins or clips to come out. If you have two arrows in opposite directions on one link, that means there are two pins or clips and each one must be extracted from arrow pointing side.
If there is only one arrow on the link- there is only one clip or pin and must be extracted the arrow pointing way.
Some watch bands are held together by very specificly made clips or pins. In this case you will need a special tool to extract them.

Need pin for band on Fossil Am 3754

Measure distance between the lugs of your watch. Find the nearest watchmaker and ask for spring lug of that size (this is if you need to attach band to watch).
If you need a pin for bracelet links- measure width of bracelet and ask for split pin of that size.
