SOURCE: tighten wristband of the Nixon Watch , remove links

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!

SOURCE: Nixon Watch band

I tried the hammer plyer thing way back but took a bunch of time and stress, then I took it into a skate shop where they sold nixon watches and they had an actual tool supplied by nixon and all the **** needed to do the job.

SOURCE: battery change for Nixon Kink watch

You have to open your watch caseback. Undo the battery holding contact, get the battery out and memorise the writings on the battery. Buy exactly the same one and replace it in the backwards way you took it out.

SOURCE: dead battery on nixon insider watch!

The insider has not one, but FOUR batteries. I took it to my local jeweler for replacement and the watch never worked the same again. I suggest you return to Nixon for battery service.

To Nixon's credit, their warranty dept. replaced my watch after trying to fix it.

Where can I buy a battery for nixon rotolog watch A02840100?


Take it to your local jeweller and they will change the battery whilst you wait for between $6 and $8. They keep all the batteries and all the tools to remove the back.

My Nixon Rotolog Leather watch broke at where the leather meets the watch. The bar keeping it together broke. I need a new bar in order to keep the watch together.


This is called spring bar or spring pin. You can buy these on ebay. Make sure you get the right size. The distance between watch lugs is the right size. Measurement must be taken in mm.

It says rom fail on my lodown 2 and i was wondering if anyone knew how to reset the watch?


Here some tips to deal with a Nixon Lodown:
1) Sleeping mood (display is off, all buttons lead to the same reaction: display shows time for some secs and then turns off again. This mode is for battery energy saving, switch it on and off by holding (c.a. 2 secs) the light button.
2) ROM FAIL: it happens that the lodown shows ROM FAIL and constantly restarts. It happened on my watch while I tried to change time zones. Here is what to do about it: Bring it to a professional watch repair store and get the battery replaced. The watch restarts automatically and works perfectly fine again. DON'T send it to Nixon, they will charge you for shipping, battery replacement, the new battery etc. Although it should be covered by the guarantee. Just get a new battery, it cost me 16 USD and the watch is good again, waterproof and works perfectly. Nixon authorized repair centers will charge you extra for pressure testing. I had this on my second Lodown, after I had it two weeks only...
3) Watch freezes: All digits are on at the same time, none of the buttons brings a reaction. I had this problem on my first lodown. Just get a new battery, that solves the problem. But again DON'T use authorized Nixon repair centers, it costed me almost 45 USD, just to get a new battery. Although the watch was only 1 year old and guarantee should have covered this case.
In general the Nixon Lodown is a good watch, looks good, has all features you need, as long as it works. The problem with the watch is, the above problems occur pretty often. I have my second Lodown now and I am very disappointed with the Nixon customer service. Although clearly guarantee cases, they will charge you for every single problem you have with the watch. My advice, bring the watch to a regular watchmaker.
After all, I don't understand why the Nixon Lodown manual does not mention all the above issues. The manual is completely useless, very poor from Nixon. You have to dig online to solve any issues on the watch. In summary: The Nixon Lodown watch is good, Nixon customer service and guarantee is a joke. ROM FAIL and freeze is solved with replacing the battery.

I just bought a new Nixon "The Banks" watch and the dial in the lower right hand corner, I believe it's suppose to be the second hand, won't work.


The Banks has three different batteries in it for each dial. The second hand battery died on it. I had the same problem and just went to a watch store and they replaced the battery for me.

How water proof can you dive to with them?


Only if the water resistance is 100m or more.

If your watch has a "no water" icon, then it should not be allow to get wet.
