SOURCE: How to replace the rubber wristband of a luminox watch

If you have a new wristband, there is a spring loaded lug where the band joins the watch, use a sharp knife or jeweler's screwdriver to slide the lug from the watch

SOURCE: versace watch ( wristband)

Same place where you bought the watch, mate, same place where you bought the watch. Surely the watch is a Versage but the wrist band can be any band you can find at any good watchmaker of jeweller. ;)

I can't find any info on strap replacement on their web site, so I suggest you find your nearest store and speak to them about it.

You can find your nearest store by going to "www.adidas.com" and clicking on "store finder" at top.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

  1. The easiest thing to try is a regular pencil eraser. It's perfect for removing marks and smudges from rubber and works like a charm! Use white erasers as the pink ones may leave pink smudges.
  2. If a regular pencil eraser doesn't work, try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser or similar product. Simply moisten the sponge and rub it over the stained area.
  3. If that doesn't do it, grab your safety goggles and move on to the next step.
  4. Mix four parts water with one part bleach in a cup or small bowl. You will need less than ΒΌ cup of the finished solution, so only mix a small amount.
  5. Wearing eye protection, moisten a white cloth with the mixture. Do not use a colored cloth. You will likely transfer color from the cloth to the watch band and make your problem worse.
  6. Carefully dab the bleach against the stain on the watch band. Don't over apply the bleach or leave it for more than a few seconds or you may damage the rubber.
  7. If needed, increase the strength of the solution by adding a bit more bleach. Do this in small increments to expose the rubber watchband to as little bleach as necessary.
  8. Blot and repeat as necessary if you see improvement.
  9. Once the stain is removed, rinse the band well with water to remove all the bleach residue.
  10. If the stain remains, mix the Rit Dye Remover with a small amount of water to make a paste.
  11. Spread the paste onto the stained area and allow it to set for a minute.
  12. Rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
  13. Repeat if necessary.
Additional Tips and Advice
  • Once you have the band clean, treat it with Armor-All wipes made for vinyl car interiors. This easy tactic will help protect the band from stains and smudging. Repeat every few weeks for maximum effect.
  • Be careful with acetone on rubber watch bands. It can start to break down the rubber and make the band feel "sticky." Once done, this can be difficult to reverse.
Best regards.

I have a clear acrylic michael kors watch and the pegs that hold the links together have turned black with dirt / grime. How can I clean this ?


Rubbing alcohol.
What is holding the dirt there is old body oils, alcohol is good at breaking that down, cheap and doesn't dissolve plastics like some other solvents. Soak the wristband in the alcohol for a couple of days. Don't submerge the watch itself as I don't know how waterproof it is. If you can separate the watch from the band without losing the holding pins, even better.
Use cotton swabs or an old toothbrush with alcohol for the stubborn stuff.

Vivani watch has multiple dials and buttons but no response


Yeah I have the same kind of watch. The three small dials are ornamental and nothing more (this is obvious because their denominations are 60, 60, and 24, instead of something useful like 1-12 month, 1-31 for date, and 7 days of week). The extra two spring buttons are probably the same... nothing but ornamental. You could verify this by taking the back off the watch and seeing for yourself that they probably press nothing at all. Are simply there for maybe some other design where the case is uses,to illuminate the dial or other thing not on the watch. Vivani watches seem to be simple watches that are very ornamental and pretty (i.e., dress watches on the cheap) but completely lacking in features at all.).
