No slot or screw to remove watch back


Check the top around the crystal. Some of those watches came apart from the top of the watch. Generally a few screws to remove. If no screws then the back pops off. Not easy but it may be the way in.
Again, if it's a decent piece go to a jeweler to do the work. Should be under $10.00. to do it.

thank you, gabe.

My watch broke and the main link piece that connects the band to the watch is missing how do i replace that piece to my watch my arm feels bare without my watch.


Hello collay1,

I understand what you mean.. You can just go to any watch repair center and they should have a spare part of what you need. Many people have had that kind of problem.

Goodluck!

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?


Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.

But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
  • Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
  • Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
  • Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
  • Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
  • Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.

How is a stauer notched leather watch band removed and replaced


No, he asked about a notched band, like on the Graves. Here the watch attaches not across the full 2cm or so but at two 6-7mm lengths around either side of a center protrusion, through which the pin slides.
Each pin consists of a longer part and a shorter end cap with a smaller pin maybe 2mm long that fits into the end of the longer hollow pin. These take a fairly serious pull to take apart, but must be pulled with care, for two reasons: one, so the pieces don't fly off and get lost when the pin comes apart, and two, so you don't accidentally torque the head sideways off the small pin, which is easy to do when you're pulling hard and not being careful. Vise-grips, with maybe thin wood like popsicle stick pieces to cushion the end caps might do, so you don't damage the end pieces as you squeeze, but again be careful. (If you do twist the endcap off its tiny pin, you might be able to glue it back with superglue (cyanoacrylate), but that's a patient precision operation by itself.)
Once the pieces are detached, the long pin will slide through the simple hole in the top and bottom protrusions from the watch case. You can customize your replacement band, set the pins, and gently compress them, again with widemouth pliers and a cushioning, they will go together more easily than they came apart.
Other Stauers use regular pins you can just pop off with the end of a pen knife, but this one is trickier.
Good luck :-)

How do you remove the links from an invicta subaqua venom stainless bracelet?


it's not much harder then normal push pins, just a little trick..push the pin out, doesn't matter which way. You will probably have to pull it out with pliers once you get it started.

once that pin is out, the band still won't come apart. There is another pin, a tube actually that the other pin went thru. it connects the center links. to remove it, you have to first remove the outer links. to do this you push them inwards, toward where your wrist would be if you were wearing it. (the links are actually two pieces-the center 'snake-skin' piece, and the outer bars. the outer bars are connected behind the center piece) the outer bars are what you push inward, they will pop out once the first pin is out.

Now you will just have the center piece connected to the adjacent center piece. That second pin (the tube) will just about fall out if you turn the band on its side. Now the bracelet will come apart.

To put back together, just line up the to center pieces, slide in the tube, then put the outer links in from behind the center piece (this actually locks the tube in place) then put in the long pin.

Ideally it will slide in halfway easily, then carefully tack it in fully. if it doesn't get in halfway jiggle the links and tap lightly. Don't use too much force until it's past 2/3 inserted or you will bend the pin.

The band links come apart


some bands have pressure pins holding them together and once the come apart wont hold again. take it to a jewelry store with a lazer welder and they should be able to drill out the old on and weld a piece of steel

Hi, I've bought a Rado ceramic Jubile, and have had as many links taken out but its still a little loose, any ideas?


I am pretty sure that you see 3-4 you can take out, but I think you can take the whole band apart if I remember correctly. After taking the links apart there is a metal tounge that the ceramic slides on to. The tounge is connected like a hinge, if you find something to tap out the pin holding the tounge on then the next piece of link slides out. Just keep doing this untill adjusted to your size. I would take out the harder ones and put in the ones that can easily be adjusted.Just be careful, that ceramic breaks easily!!!! Let me know how you do . Good Luck!!!
