You need to push the pins out in the direction of the arrows. Then take out one link from each side. Put the pins back in the same way they came out, with the slot pointing the same direction as before.

SOURCE: trying to shorten stainless steel watch strap

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 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!

Looking for a replacement watch band for SEIKO SPORTURA HONDA F1 RUBBER BAND/STRAP SNA749P1 Where can I get one and what is the best price for customer in UK?


I've been looking for a replacement for the Seiko SNAE93p1 and have seen the replacement for this in several places. I only remember because it has a red and black band similar to the one on the watch I'm wanting, and I figure that I should get a replacement band when I buy this new watch, as the synthetic bands on Seiko watches tend to break after about 3 years or so.
Watchbands.com has it for $65 I believe. watchbands com

Watch band is broken need a new band . unable to find a repair in australia as advised no replacement band are available


These watches appear to be made by Seiko and they have a service center at the address below. Their web site http://www.nike.com/timing/ says that they will repair or replace broke straps if it is within warranty. Is yours in this position. They do not say what happens if it is out of warranty though!

They suggest you ring them before taking any action (like sending it to them).

The strap has split how can i get it repaired


Generally when a leather watch strap becomes damaged it has to be replaced. Seiko has a good customer service in the U.S. But you could try a shoe repair shop, they might be able to glue it back together.

Hello. I removed my one of strap part from my SEIKO KINETIC SKA187 watch some months ago. Now my arm is bigger and i wanted to put it back. But i can't find it anymore. Could you tell me where i can buy...


You will need to contact Seiko to find a local dealer who will be able to order this for you. Seiko will not normally provide parts to the public but it may be worth while contacting their service department you may get lucky.

The watch will have a case number on the back and possibly a number on the strap too. You will need to quote those.

I have a Seiko stainless steel ladies watch, 3 years old, only one 'winder' no fancy buttons, analogue style. It has suddenly started beeping every hour - how do I turn it off?


mcdevito75 here, The beeping must be a signal that the battery is weak, have the battery changed. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.
