Usually on these types of clasps, there is a little metal tang with a notch on the inside of the part that the worded end of the clasp slips over a bar. Under that bar is where you lift up the notched tang. After you lift it up, using a miniscrewdriver or watch knife, you can then slide the attachment to the desired band length. Then push the tang back down to lock it.

How to exchange leather straps for almost any watch brand


Most of the people are pretty sure that when their watch leather straps are worn out they have to replace them with new ones, made by exactly the same brand as their watch brand is. This is completely wrong. About 95% of all watch brand models can be fitted with leather straps from any watch strap producer without loosing brands identity. All you have to do is: 1. Release the strap from the watch; 2. Measure the width of the strap where the spring bar (pin) goes through and write it down or memorize it; 3. Undo the buckle/clasp; 4. Measure the width of strap in place where the buckle/clasp was fitted and write it down or memorize it; 5. Measure the length of the strap (both parts together) and write it down or memorize it. Now you have everything you need for strap replacement. Visit any shop selling leather straps or even find it on the internet. You will find thousands of different colours, patterns and leather variations. The choice is yours. Just one thing to remember: The strap you are buying must match all the measurements you took of your original strap. This is not difficult to match, as the watch straps usually are made to global standards. When you have your new strap delivered, just fit it to your watch and undo the buckle/clasp that came with it. Fit your old, original buckle/clasp on to the new strap and you are done. Most watch manufacturers impress, engrave or laser engrave their logos on buckles/clasps, not on the leather straps itself. So, when you fit the original buckle/clasp on brand new strap of different make, it becomes the original strap of the watch you own. And nobody knows that the strap is, for example, from Hong Kong, but watch is from Switzerland (except you, of course} as they look together as one nicely designed piece and the buckle/clasp works as the proof of identity. In case if your watch has some unusually shaped fixing for the strap, this shape can be easily cut in to the strap by modellers scalpel. At the very end I just want to remind to all readers: Watch straps sold under watch brand names are 2-10 times more expensive. In fact - they are not produced by watch manufacturers themselves, but in Italy, Germany, China and Hong Kong and then sent to watch manufacturers. Just because these straps were fitted to the watches and the buckles or clasps were added to them, these straps automatically becomes their brand straps and cost a lot, lot more. Hope it helps to save your hard earned money.

How do i adjust the band on the slimline mesh skagen watch


Step 1. On the reverse of the strap you should see a succession of ridges. You will also notice a corresponding ridge on the clasp. Sounds obvious, but once you have decided where the clasp should reside on the strap, you need to align these two ridges.

The reverse of the strap
Step 2. Get a piece of string or ribbon and wrap it around your wrist. Snip the string so that one end meets the other and measure this diameter.
Step 3. On the other end of the strap you will see the hook which goes over the clasp - you will see the next picture. From this hook the measured distance will be where the end of the string lies.

The clasp mechanism - the watch is to the right of the picture
Step 4. This is the tricky bit! Insert a small screwdriver into the hole on the main clasp part, from the right hand side and bend it down towards the strap thus opening the clasp. Do not insert a tool from the left side, under the clasp and use the bar as a fulcrum; you will bend this rod and the watch strap will not hook over it. Move the clasp to the desired position and gently locate the ridge nearest the position. Once located, press down on the open clasp until it clicks into place - voila!

Other than removing links, can I make smaller adjustments to the band on my Omega seamster limited edition?


mcdevito75 here, You should right at the clasp, simply remove the pin and move the entire band up thru the other adjustment holes you see along side the clasp itself. If there aren"t any additional holes along side of the clasp for the band to move up closer to the clasp lock, then no other adjustments can be made.

Unclear as to how you adjust the rubber band strap


  1. Remove the deployant clasp from the watchband. The clasp is attached using spring bars on each end of the clasp. The method of spring bar removal varies but is usually performed by pushing a small pointed tool (one end of a spring bar tool) into a hole at the end of the clasp. While depressing the spring rod, pull the buckle away from the bracelet to detach. Repeat this for both sides of the buckle.
  2. Step 2 Measure the watchband to determine proper sizing. Use the scissors to cut along the inner grooves to remove needed sections (each section of the rubber will contain a new set of holes for the bracelet spring bars). Cut carefully and conservatively, as this step cannot be undone.
  3. Step 3 Reattach the buckle to the band after resizing. Reverse Step 1, pushing the spring bar in while sliding the buckle back into place.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

Mens Versace leather strap. How do I adjust the band ? The watch has a cream face, square in shape, chronograph with a brown elather strap. Clip requires adjusting and cant work out how to adjust..


Well i am going to roll the dice and assume you have one of the ez clasps but if I am wrong you can send the model number and we will figure it out.

To adjust the ez clasp pull up on the front of the clasp loop while pushing down on the band. Rather than the traditional buckle and prong set up, the prong here is underneath the clasp loop.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

How do you remove the pin out of Starck and Fossil PH1100 watch?


Ok, so if you are like me then you probably thought removing the three tiny screws from either side of the strap, and cutting segments of the strap and re-screwing the clasps back was going to do it. Unfortunately one realises that the clasps do not slacken to let the rubber straps out even after the screws are off. The critical point is to get the side pins out which is no simple feat. Getting the pins out releases the clasps and the rubber strap.
To get the pins out, use a wire cutter to cut down a paper clip to a length of 1 .5 cms or so. Hold this with a pair of tweezers along the axis of the pins while you hammer down in the direction of the small arrow inscribed on the metal clasp. With persistence a part of the pin comes out from the other end and you can then pull it out completely with a pair of pliers.
Removing the two pins with release the ends of the rubber straps. cut away segments as required while trying on so that you dont cut too many. Make sure you cut the same number of segments on each side. I had to cut three from each side since I have very thin wrists.
Now put the rubber strap back hold the clasps in position and push the pin back in place. Put the screws back and you should be in business.
It sounds complicated but is quite simple if someone shows you how....which I hope I have been able to.

How to adjust the watch strap


I just bought the o-ring watch by Starck, and it looks to have the same style of strap. If you look on the side of the clasp, you will see a pin on both ends. You have to remove these retention pins first (which may require tools that are unavailable to you). First, stabilize the watch on its side on a soft mat - I used the back of a mouse pad. Then, use a thin, stiff piece of metal tool to push the pins out slightly. I used a crafting tool. Once the pin sticks out enough, you can use a fine set of pliers to pull them the rest of the way out. (If this does not make much sense at this point, you may be best off going to watch shop.) Once you remove the pins, the clasp can be removed from the strap simply by lifting the clamp. You then trim the strap with a pair of sharp scissors to the appropriate length - make sure you see exactly what the end looks like, because the shortened strap will need to have the same apperance. After trimming, reclamp the clasp onto the strap, and reinsert the pin. You may need a small hammer to get the pins seated completely. Then, you're done. So obviously intuitive, why would anyone need directions, right? Honestly, Fossil did not make this one easy at all. Kind of irritating.

Adjusting the strap


Most clasps have a series of small holes drilled in them, and the end of the strap is held in by a small, spring-loaded bar whose ends are seated in one set of holes. Take the end of a small paperclip, or a large needle, and use it to depress the spring-loaded pin. You can then carefully slide it to another set of holes to make the band smaller. Don't let the ends of the pin slide all the way out of the clasp, or it might shoot off into space.
