SOURCE: remove watch band link

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 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!

SOURCE: I have an invicta pro diver watch with stainless

I know of a couple places in San Antonio and Austin that would be able to custom fit your new band or help you with a repair.

Precision Time

They are located in the malls in either city. They also have a web site.

PrecisionTimeCo.com

You can try to contact Invicta for new links and they may have them depending on the age of the model. Look at your owners manual for contact information.

SOURCE: I can;t figure out how to change bands on my baby

It is easy for anyone who did it, but for the first time can be quite tricky. You have to take small screwdriver or pocket knife and insert the blade between strap/band and watch case lug (where the band is attached to watch), then pry it inwards applying some pressure. It will release the spring lug and the band will come off. You may need to repeat this on the other side of band as well. Rate me,plz.

SOURCE: got this watch for xmas, nice. the band is too

The best way is to take it to a watch shop and have the jewler remove the necessary links abot ten buck job. You can also use Invicta site to have them do the job. Usually watch manufacturers have a need to know site that tells you how to do it, but I don't se one on Invicta.

Swiss made model number 33269 s gold is it reel


The best thing to do would be go to a reputable jeweler and they can do a test on the band or case to see if it is real. Also, You can usually see a 14k or other designation somewhere on the back of the case or at the clasp on the wristband.

My Purchased Movado is unusual and the band has cutouts which have fallen apart .How can I fins a replacement band ? The numbers on the back of my watch are84-G2-1883 second line 7010784.Cant find th


That is a beautiful watch. There are a few used ones being sold now on eBay. I think you have 3 choices. The best would be to bring it to an official Movado dealer and ask if it's possible to replace the band. You could also get a routine service at the same time. If they don't have an identical band, then check out what other bands would fit, if any. Lastly, buy one of the used ones on eBay and hope for the best. Good luck. (Now that I think more about it, I've seen a few other internet shops that specialize in band replacement. They aren't very easy to find but it might be worth being persistent and making sure you've exhausted your options.)

to adjust the size of your wrist...eat chocolate!
most watches with linked wristbands require the links removing.(small pins to b e pushed out) the type with the chain links usually have a clamp to release to slide the clasp up the band. the instructions should be with the watch manual. or ask a jeweler to help.

Where can I get a new band for my KS4003 Kenneth Cole watch? The clasp won't open and I didn't want to pay $65 just for a new clasp. How much is the band?


Thank you for contacting FixYa,
You can contact Kenneth Cole for a replacement band but I am afraid the band is probably going to be alot more then the $65 for the clasp. I would honestly just replace the clasp unless the band is worn in which case I would do the band.
Sorry.

The spring in the clasp has broken so the watch band will not stay closed. How can I fix this problem?


replace clasp is the best option..if clasp has 2 buttons on it these can be a easy fix but they always break again so i would replace clasp section or even all the bracelet for the watch .you will need model and serial numbers of the watch then try manufacture or ebay or a repairer

How to remove links from band


This band is put together with cotter pins. To remove the cotter pins look at the edge of the band. The end of the pin that comes out is split and looks like a screw. The end that is solid is the end you want to push from. Use a small punch to push the pin out. The split end is the bigger end of the cotter pin so it needs to come out and go back in the same way it came out. Make sure you remove an even number of links on each side so the watch sits on the wrist the right way. You also have a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust the clasp simply use a punch to press the spring bar in the clasp in until it moves. This is a spring bar so be careful it doesnt jump out if the clasp comes apart.

The strap is broken on casio watch


I had exactly the same problem with exactly the same model watch, and it happened to me twice. The AQ-160 is the important part of the model number as far as replacement parts are concerned. The first time, I took it to the shop where I bought the watch, and they replaced the band, but it cost me $50. The second time, I looked up the Web for the master agent for Casio in Australia, and they said I could buy the end piece, not the whole band, for $6. I found I could replace it quite easily myself by using a drawing pin to remove the spring pin that holds it together. A bit fiddly to reassemble but not too bad. In fact, I didn't wait for the new part to arrive, just used the unbroken end of the old band. So now I have a repaired band plus the old band and a new end piece, in case it ever happens again.

I really like this watch, but it is a pity the bands are so weak.
