SOURCE: what to do with watch repair kit

Unless the watch back has notches on it, you want to look around the edge of the watch and find a little lip. When you find the lipp, use one of the knives and pry open the back. Take one of the tweezers and pull out the battery, you could also use one of those handy-dandy screwdrivers to pry out the battery. Put the new battery in laying exactly like the old one , then proceed to close the back, making sure that the little notch (on the INSIDE lip of the back case) lines up with the stem and crown (the part used for setting the watch) so not to break it. The back openers and the knives are just differant ways to opn the back of the watch. Sometimes watches have screws on the back that need to be taken off in order to open the back case. The case vise is to minumize the wear and tear on your hands. The tweezers are for taking out the battery. If you have anymore questions PLEASE feel free to contact me I will be glad to assist you further! Good Luck!!!

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Watch 3574 pin in length has broken

are you talking about the band pins or the lug pins? most watch repair stations will have lugs and pins, and will replace for about $5...any more and you will be getting ripped off. Lug pins are a pain and unless you have the proper lug tools, you can end up scratching the finish of the watch...be careful!

SOURCE: Having trouble removing pin from men's Ebel 1911

Watchmakers are using special pin removing tools and punches. You can find them on Ebay. If you have pins you can not damage threads as pins do not have any threads - they are friction fitted. Punch must be the size of the pin end you can see. Some pins come out easily, some quite hard, so, use appropriate strength to drive pins out. In case if there are screws - use small screwdriver to fit in the slotted screw end and unscrew the screw.
Rate me, plz.

SOURCE: I recently received a Tag Heuer Link Calbre 5

Here is how its done. First remove one end of the clasp (this is much easier on the adjustment side - just depress the pin and remove). Now you can separate the two halves of the first link (actually this is a half-link). Simply grab each half and pull. You may have to do some twisting - do it carefully so that you don't bend the pin. You may have to do some prying - if so, you can use a thin piece of plastic so you don't scratch the link and only pry along the pin so that you don't bend it. Once removed, you can now remove the first full link. Remove it in the same way. Now replace the end half-link and re-attach the clasp. Removing a link from the other side is a little more difficult. The clasp lock is held on with a long pin (slot on one end and screw on the other. One must be held in place while you turn the other. You may need another pair of hands to help you.
If you feel uncomfortable about any of the above, take it to a jeweler - a Tag AD is not necessary but probably best although any jeweler can remove a link if they understand how they are put together. Tell them the link is composed of a right and left half that snap together and they should then see and understand what they need to do.

What size pin tool do I need to remove the bracelet?


If you have an eyeglass repair kit (available at drugstores), use one of the small screwdrivers to depress the pin and remove the band. If you don't have one of these, try a large, unbent safety pin-- but I'm telling you in advance you will probably stick yourself at least once... just get the repair kit!

I need new pins for my womens eco drive citizens watch to re size. where do i but them and what size do i need.


mcdevito75 here, besides the pins, you"ll need a special tool called a Pin Removal tool. By the time you order and recieve, it"s better to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the removal / Install of these pins and links.

Pins keep popping out when watch band gets snagged. What size are the pins for watch band?


mcdevito75 here, These pins may be a bit worn in the band of your watch, if so, you"d have to order a kit with various size pins for replacement. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop to fit new pins in the band.

I own a titanium luminox and I have replaced the pins that attach the band to the watch it self twice. Where can I find Heavy Duty pins or something? Can I buy a repair kit to install the pins? Thanks in...


I used to have similar problems when I used to used leather (rigid) straps. I found that flexing the wrist used to pull the straps off the watch.

I got over the problem by using expanding bracelet. I have never had the problem since (30 years!).
