Most department and discount stores that sell Casio watches will carry a general assortment of replacement bands for those watches. However, your model takes a somewhat specialized band that may not be stocked by these stores. Instead, if you're looking for a local source for a replacement band, you might need to visit a "quick watch repair" kiosk or store in your local shopping mall or visit a jeweler who sells Casio watches. Often, both of these types of businesses keep a more comprehensive selection of authentic Casio bands in stock.
Replacement bands are also available online. For example, just because it was near the top of the Google search results I received, this web site has a wide variety of Casio bands, along with suggestions of the watch models to which they go. I have not ordered from this web site, and I have no affiliation with them (I actually think some of their prices are on the high side), but it's one of many online sources for the watch band you need:
The battery is actually accessed from the front of the watch.
You should have a "Case Knife" to remove the front bezel.
Remove the band first.
Set the watch in its side. Set the case knife at the groove where the watch band holder meets the front bezel, and give the back of the knife a sharp rap with a small hammer. The front bezel should pop off.
Some watches have a small circular plastic piece that will also come out. Gently remove the movement from the front. The battery (CR 2025) can then be removed from the back of the movement using a small, thin blade. Install the new battery. The inside back of the case should have restart instructions. (Push A -left button once. then push and hold A until hands move to 12:00. Push B once to start reception.
The back of the watch is plastic. Don't try to remove it.
Gently re-assemble movemengt. A watch case press tool is best for finishing assembly. I would suggest taking the watch to a jeweler if you are uncomfortable taking this watch apart. Good luck
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.
You do noy need an exact Anne Klein band as all watch bands are made to specific measurements. You have to measure the width of the band (the end attached to the watch) and buy any type of band you like, just make sure it is exactly the same width as the previous band. In case if you have the Anne Klein clasp or buckle, you have to measure the other end of the band as well and by any band you like, but in this case you need to match both ends of the band. Clasp or buckle are easily refitted to the new band and nobody knows that this is not an original one. Do not forget to rate, please.
On ebay you will be able to find the correct Casio band for your watch. There are 2 or 3 dealers that sell them but a little advice....don't buy the cheap ones! Buy ONLY the Casio replacement band and it will fit perfectly. You will need the spring bar tool to remove the pins that hold the band to the case. Don't try to install or remove the band without one....it will gouge the case at the pin stems and you will not be happy. They are cheap and worth every penny. Casio.com can also direct you to their watch bands. Hope this helps you and good luck!
I drilled a coupleof very small holes in the plastic part of the case and also in the watch band where it attaches to the case. I mixed strong epoxy glue (two part) and held the two pieces together with clamps over night. That was 6 months ago and it is still holding. The holes helped squeeze the glue into the joint. Good Luck!
The following proccedure mentioned can be implied for replacing only resin(plastic) strap.
If you have a spare Band, you can replace it with the help of one small four mouth screw driver and one small 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which you can get from any electronics/ computer hardware shop.
Band = Strap
You just need to remove the strap with the help of 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which ever you find convinent by removing the Spring Bars. After removing the strap put out spring bars from both sides as these may be used for again fixing the band.
If you find difficulty in removing the Band, you just need to unscrew the screws on for side of the watch case and remove the ring and after fixing the strap you can fix the ring again.
The new band can be fixed in the same way as it has been removed. You need to put the spring bar in the hollow space of strap and keeping the buckle side part of starp above the watch i.e 12 position over the space where it has to be fixed, then put one end of the Spring bar on one hole in the watch case and press the spring bar to get inside from other side (hole in the watch case). In the same way you can replace ******** other side.
In case of any difficulty take your watch to nearest Casio Service Centre for assistance or solution of problem.
