SOURCE: watch band

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.

I've had a Fossil before, but forgot how easy it is. Thanks for the refresher.

I also have an Adidas watch, but cannot find a replacement.
Unfortunately, very unique for the contours around the body of the watch. Where can I find a replacement watchband?

SOURCE: How to adjust the watch strap

I just bought the o-ring watch by Starck, and it looks to have the same style of strap. If you look on the side of the clasp, you will see a pin on both ends. You have to remove these retention pins first (which may require tools that are unavailable to you). First, stabilize the watch on its side on a soft mat - I used the back of a mouse pad. Then, use a thin, stiff piece of metal tool to push the pins out slightly. I used a crafting tool. Once the pin sticks out enough, you can use a fine set of pliers to pull them the rest of the way out. (If this does not make much sense at this point, you may be best off going to watch shop.) Once you remove the pins, the clasp can be removed from the strap simply by lifting the clamp. You then trim the strap with a pair of sharp scissors to the appropriate length - make sure you see exactly what the end looks like, because the shortened strap will need to have the same apperance. After trimming, reclamp the clasp onto the strap, and reinsert the pin. You may need a small hammer to get the pins seated completely. Then, you're done. So obviously intuitive, why would anyone need directions, right? Honestly, Fossil did not make this one easy at all. Kind of irritating.

You may have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
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!

How do I adjust my watch band?


If you want to deuce the size of your band then I have found some instructions on the Fossil website and since most watches are very similar you can try the method described there.

If you need to replace links then you can get them for Skagen (free!).

Go to "fossil.com", go to the bottom of the page and you will see a menu, click on "customer care", and then look under "Product Info" on the left and you will see "watch instructions"

Go down the list to the bottom and under "Phillipe Stark" there is an item "bracelet instructions"

I cant set the time, I would like to set the correct time, know how to set the alarm and be able to view the day date and time, I think it can show all of that....It was working and now, nothing :(


Perhaps you have operated a number of options that have confused the poor thing! I suggest that you obtain a copy of the user instructions and to do this you should go to the Fossil web site (fossil.com) and enter "Phillipe Stark" in the search box.

Got to the bottom of the screen and there is a menu of alternatives; choose "customer care".

The next page has a menu on the left, choose "watch instructions"

Select the illustration that matches your watch and choose the instructions by the model number.

If you cannot get the watch to operate satisfactorily even when you have followed the instructions, then you can only contact the manufacturer and aask for help.

Setting time & date on Philippe Starck Fossile watch ph1080


hold the left, bottom button (marked ....) for a few seconds....then press the top right button (marked with 1 dot) to change between the hour, minute, date etc. use the bottom right button to advance the flashing number, and when finished setting time and date, use the bottom left button to stop the numbers flashing and return the watch to normal. hope this helps, this is also how to change the date for the other question asker (works on 2 other starck/fossil watches i have and i assume the controls are the same).
