SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Wrist Watch unable to remove link

First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

Hope it'll help.

Regards

Arthur

SOURCE: How to set kenneth cole unlisted digital watch with 4 buttons

OK I'll do my best to describe the procedure...

Part 1:
Press mode button till the seconds window blinks
Press Lap/Reset button once to make minutes blink
Cycle through minutes using Start/Stop Button

Part 2:
Press Lap/Reset button once again to make hours blink
Cycle through hours using Start/Stop Button

(for this part, it's a bit tricky. Hours can be displayed in AM, PM, or 24 hour duration. AM is represented by "A", PM is shown with "P" and 24 hour mode is shown with "H", so keep an eye in the seconds window when setting your hour so you know for sure if you have the right hour)

When your done setting minutes and hours, press mode button again till you get to main screen
A helpful hint is to remember when setting up anything in this watch, mode will cycle through the different screens, lap/reset will change the value of whatever your modifying (AKA minutes/hours) and start/stop scrolls through the different fields.

Hope this helps. Sorry if it's confusing, best I could do.

SOURCE: Trying to replace battery in Kenneth Cole C275-04-KC3522

You need a watchmakers knife or caseback opening tool to open your watch.
1)If your watch has screwdown back, there should be grooves in caseback where you have to put in opener and unscrew that caseback.
2)If your watch has a 'clip-on' caseback, you have to carefuly examine the caseback and find the groove between caseback and watch case (it is called 'the lip'). This is the right point where to insert the blade of wtchmakers knife and open it using pressure and lever action.
3)The safest, but dearest way is to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for battery replacement. You may ask the watchmaker to show you how to do that, so, in future you can do that yourself.
Do not forget to rate, please.

I have a watch from kenneth cole reaction model #kc3652 i took it to have battery changed but it didnt work with that is there service for this type of issue


    Bought from Kenneth Cole Store
  1. Write your name, address, phone number and a description of the problem on a sheet of paper.
  2. Put the watch and the paper with your information in a padded envelope or box.
  3. Mail your package to:

    Kenneth Cole Productions Inc.
    Attn: Returns Department
    229 Hollie Drive
    Martinsville, VA 24112
  4. Send the package via Certified Mail and insure it.
  5. Wait four to six weeks. If the repair is under warranty, Kenneth Cole Productions will make the repair and mail your watch back to you. If the repair is not under warranty, it will call you to let you know the charges.
  6. Bought from Official Kenneth Cole Retailer
  7. Find the website for the retailer where you bought your watch. Look for warranty information on the website. This location should have the address where you will send your watch for repairs.
  8. Fill out a form with your name, address, phone number and a description of the problem. Some retailers have forms on their website. The form may include the style number, which is found on the case back.
  9. Include $8.50 to cover return postage in a check, money order or credit card information. The type of payment varies from retailer to retailer, but the amount is generally consistent.
  10. Include any extra money needed for repairs if they are not under warranty. This includes repairs such as a battery, case or strap. This also varies from retailer to retailer. Some ask you to include the money ahead of time; others will call after seeing the watch.
  11. Put the watch, any information and money into a padded envelope and send it to the appropriate address. Insure the package.
