I have a Timex Expedition that has a non standard band and can't find a replacement anywhere. I love the watch but I am in Afghanistan and there are no stores. I need to find one or two online. Any ideas would be appreciated.

SOURCE: shorten watch band

For this you will need a pair of fine tweezers, a small flat blade screw driver and a lot of patience.

Determine how many links you need to take out by pinching the band while it is on the wrist. Once you know how many you are ready to remove the links.
spread the band and you will see that the very end of the links is tabbed. Be careful and fold down the end of the link with your small screw driver. Be careful not to bend anything. You will then need to turn the band over and bend down the tab of the link on the opposite side but right beside the first tab you bent down. Now you will see how the band is held together. If you look into the two tabs you just bent down you will see a small peice of metal connecting the two links. This is a staple. Pull the staple out with your tweezers.
Now go to the exact opposite side and perform the same task. The band should now be apart where you remove the staples from each side.
Now count down the number of links you want to remove and perform the task again.
*Remember that you must do it the exact same way on each side or the band will not go back together.
Once you have the correct number of links out the band will go back together the same way you took it apart.
When folding down the tabs be sure to use gentle even pressure so you dont over bend them and keep the band from moving freely. I usually find it easiest to use the fla part of the screw driver in a gentle pressing motion.

Remember that this take watch makers and technician a lot of practice. Be patient. If you arent patient or good with very small parts, pop into your local jewlery store for help.

SOURCE: purchase watchbands for the timex 1440 sport

My son's watch (WR 50M) broke... so I have a strap, if you'd like it.
He loved this watch and it would cost about the price of a new one to repair, so I'm buying him a new one. He's had the same watch for years... bless, huh?
If you anywhere I can purchase another WR 50M - 1440 Timex, I'd be most grateful.

Where can i buy a replacement strap


Most retailers that carry watches also have replacement watch-bands. Since you have a fairly common brand and model, there should be at least one size that fits in stock. The Timex website has more info, although as of this writing the link to directly order from Timex is down.
