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.

Cerruti watch strap cannot be changed in any watch specialists in middlesbrough and i am just wondering where i will be able to get it done


You probably will have to send it away to get sorted (make sure you send it insured and very well protected).
You should contact cerruti to see who the repair shop is in the UK, (not sure they have one.)
Failing that you may be able to buy a replacement strap of ebay and have a general watch shop change strap for you.
Or find a jewellers that sell straps, they should have one that fits.

Have a longines watch circa 970 but need new links for the strap longines cannot help me ,so now what


If you haven't already tried it, I suggest replace the entire strap.

Most watches have standard sized lugs, so it should be possible find another one that you like and also fits your watch.

How do i replace the strap with the new one


You can usually but a watch strap from you local shop and they will fit it for you.

If you particularly want a Fossil strap, then you can get one fro them by going to their web site "fossil.com", select "watches", then "men" or "women" and scroll down the page and near the bottom you will find a number of alternative straps that you can buy from them.

You can have it fitted by a local watch shop if you do not wish to fit it yourself.

How to make the strap shorter


Those are very difficult to adjust. Unless you adjust those often, then your best bet is to take it to a watch repair business and let them adjust it for you! :-)

Good luck!

New battery needed and fitted to a Polar heart rate monitor


This is really easy to do yourself. Get a CR1632 battery, unscrew the four screws on the back (dont tip the watch as there is a small spring in the watch), unclip the metal band holding in the old battery noting the way 'round the battery is in (minus side up), pop in new battery and push clip back down, when re-fitting the back make sure the spring mentioned earlier lines up with the white sticker with a hole in it on the inside of the watch back, screw down the back. After you have re done all your settings you may need to re-aquaint the watch with the strap, to do this put on the watch and strap, set the heart monitoring going, bring the watch up close to the 'Polar' logo on the chest strap until the time is displayed, should now be all set up.
