SOURCE: Watch band replacement

If you can, get yourself a small flathead screwdriver and grind or cut out the middle to resemble a barbecue fork. This will help you to hold down and move the springbar. If you can't grind or cut it, just use it to hold down the ledge that springs down (like a toilet paper holder) and push it over with that. It will probably take a few trials, because it is difficult without the right tools.

SOURCE: Pin that holds metal band clasp is missing

If it is only the pin that holds the metal band, this is an extremely inexpensive part that is available at most stores that sell watches.

SOURCE: replacing watch band on pathfinder pas410

Watchmakers use special tool to release spring bars, but it is possible to release them in home conditions. Place your watch on flat surface face down. Using pocket knife insert the blade between band and the watch lug where the spring bar (pin) end is and using lever action push spring bar end inwards. This should release the band from the watch. If all this does not work, then your watch band is attached with friction fitted pins and you will need watchmakers help, as without special pin removing tool it is not possible to remove friction fitted pins.

Rate me, plz.

Go to "" and click on "support".

Although they don't say so directly, their repair section imply that they can replace straps.

Each link near the clip has a Spring- loaded PIN securing it to the other link, remove as many links you need and join the two open ends back together, a watch shop will do it too. $$

Sounds like it may be a bit sticky or need demagnetizing. A light sharp tap on the side on something like a wooden or plastic surface might help!

Most makers have a limited warranty and does not cover anything outside the case.

Have you tried any of the local watch repairers; on the face of it, it sounds to me that a watch repairer should be able to fix it for you.

I bought an Akribos Shutter Watch, and it will tick for a while but after 2 hours or so, it will stop.

It needs a service.
The watch needs to be cleaned internally.
