SOURCE: Remove link form Relic Wrist band

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

Hope this works for you!

SOURCE: replaceing battery for colibri pocket watch

Just figured this out myself - couldn't find an answer on the internet or Colibri's website.

Look at the bottom edge of the pocket watch near the hinge (the end opposite of the post). On my watch, there is a small indentation, barely noticable, along the bottom of the side of the back cover directly opposite (but very near) to the hinge. Take a small fine screwdriver (as you would use to change a screw in a pair of glasses), and gently pry that into the groove. A small amount of force is required, but the back just "pops" off.

Keep in mind, there is a risk of scratching the cover. So if that risk is unacceptablen to you, a watch store should be able to do this as well. But it was pretty easy. Hope that helps.

You may or may not 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 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 or adding extra link(s) 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!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

Removing wrist band


You can remove any watchband using a pocket knife trying to get between the back side of the band and the watch. Gently pry sideways until you see the spring-loaded end coming out. Flex the band back from the watch as you do this action.

Need to replace battery in my Colibri pendant watch. Can't figure out how to open case to change it.


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the tip of your pocket knife in the slot on the back of the watch. Pry the back off.

  • Take your tweezers and grasp the metal piece that is hiding the battery.

  • Once that metal piece is out the battery should come out too.

  • Put the new battery in and cover it with the metal piece.

  • Put the back of the watch back on and snap it into place.


  • Best wishes. Jewel

    How do I change the date on a Colibri Pocket Watch?


    Usually all quartz watches are supplied with calendar setting mechanism and it is very simple-
    try to pull out crown and you will notice that there are two clicks,so, when the crown is pulled out to the first click, the date can be adjusted by the turn of the crown. When crown is pulled further out (second click)- the watch is in hand setting position and you can adjust time.
    Did it help?

    Watch band links.


    you would have to either have custom links made or buy a whole new band to be made the links pop out by pins and then shortened placed this way back together
    but if you dont have extra links buying longer band is your better sollution cause creating a link or 2 to fits can be costly

    Pocketwatch quit working


    Stephen,
    Pocket watches are watches the collect dust (from the pockets they sit in) very easily, so you may have an issue here with that being the cause of why your hands are not moving as they once did. Then again, it could be VERY easily that you went to a place to have them replaced and the battery you purchased was "aged" and no longer has power enough to make the watch function properly. I would suggest that if you replaced it yourself in a place where you bought the battery and went home to put it in, go to a place where they put it in for you as they will overturn the stock much quicker. If the clerk is someone of real knowledge they will even be able to tell you "we sell a 20 of that one every week" or something of that nature. As I have suggested to others this is the time of year where quality of service for a small watch battery is much less then it will be when you go in in 5 weeks when the store is happy to see someone.
