How do you remove links


There are small pins that are friction fit into the band. You will need a small screwdriver or something the less than the diameter of a paper clip. Using a small hammer tap the pin out in the direction of the arrow which is indicated on the back of the band. Do so for however many links that need to be removed. After doing this then put the band back together and replace the pin by taping it in until it is flush. Use a thin cloth over the pin when taping so you don't scratch the case. Good luck. If you need a professional go to a jeweler to help you out.. Thank you, Gabe.

How to remove the band on the Invicta venom reserve


If you are talking about removing the entire band from the case, the Venom uses 2 spring-tension pins on each side, both of which must be released from their holes in the case to free the band. it is a tricky, hard to see procedure, even for a jeweler, but it can be done. I recommend taking the Venom to the jeweler the first time and letting them show you what the attachment looks like. This would make it easier for you to try yourself in the future without scratching the case or becoming too frustrated.

If you must try this yourself, be patient and use a small tool like a mini screwdriver to release the first pin via the small gap on the underside of the band, and then look for the 2nd pin which is further back. A small flashlight may help you see the pins. Then repeat on the opposite end of the band.

Putting the watch band back on the case is somewhat easier, still requiring patience and several tries. Don't lose or damage the pins.

I own baby g 3786 watch and need new strap for it. where can I buy it?


I've had to send mine to Casio every time I've needed a new band. It's a PIA. I wish I could find another way to replace it. They will only put the same band back on. I'd like a different band that is a little more durable. Good luck.

How do you put the back, back onto this fs1? The band keeps getting in the way! Back came off easily enough, popped off after unscrewed. Band is still on watch, have tried to slide back into grooves but...


You have to remove band in order to fit caseback back onto the watch. Insert pocket knife blade between band and case lug and pry inwards. This motion should release the band. It will be a lot more difficult to fit the band back on and you will probably need to buy springbar tool. Rate me plz.

How to shorten watchband


It all depends on the style of the band.
Go to where the links are all the same size, not tapered at all.
If you have a stretch band, along the edge, unbend the flaps that hold what look liks tiny staples. Pull out what you need removed and put the remailing pieces together.
If you have a non-stretch band, grab a SMALL paperclip about 1/8" from the end. Along the edge of the band you will see the pins that hold it together. Have someone hold the band with the bottom edge of the pin you are removing, over an opening. Between 2 hardback books wirks great. Tap the pliers to drive the pin partially out. Pull it out and do the same to remove as many links as needed. Put the pins back in, in the same direction they came out, from the same side they came out.

My invicta stainless steel band has two bent pins and I was told to send back to invicta repair. Is the repair of watch band more expensive than a new watch band and who can put on new band.


Most watch pins go for an average of 5 to 10 dollars per pin. If the band is in good condition there is no need to replace it. Most invicta metal bands can retail from 35 dollars and up. We are located in the Holyoke Mall in Holyoke MA

Broken Watch band


you probably just need a pin to secure the links back together. an authorized Movado retailer will have the tension or screw pins to put the band back together. They can also order additional links if needed. you can find a local retailer on www.movado.com

Replace a band on a fossil watch brand 2753 georgia bulldogs


Bands are held to the watch body by springpins. To disengage them, I use a fine blade knife, and pull one end of the pin down by causing the blade to bite into the metal of the pin, between the eye of the band and the watch body. This method will work when dealing with leather straps, perhaps not with a metal band, depending on how much clearance there is between the watch fork and the band's eye.
If there is no clearance, it may be necessary to destroy the springpin to get the band free. Replacement pins can be purchased at a watch repairer.
Replacing batteries: You need the back off. Some screw on, most press in. Press- ins can usually be released with a knife blade, or small leverage device if there is a specific release place on the rear cover. On odd occasions, it becomes necessary to "use a hammer and chisel". Not easy.
Screw- off backs need a tool to engage the slots on the rear. Sometimes can be done with a pair of long- nose pliers.
The backs often have a fine rubber sealing ring, for water resistance.This needs to be put back in place carefully.
The batteries are held in place by various means, spring tension, clamping etc. Sometimes a screw or two must be loosened to free the battery.
Really, it is all a job for the experienced.
I only do work on my own and other family member's watches. I have a range of tools I have made for these. I wouldn't risk doing outsiders' watches. I do bands and batteries, but leave it at that.

Removing the back to change battery


The plastic wrist band doesn't have to be cut away. You need to dislodge the spring-loaded end of the pin from the hole in the plastic with the blade of a sharp thin knife.

The you proceed to lift one of the 4 snaps to open the cover. The battery is under a white translucent inside cover.

The original battery was Sony SR621SW.

Pay attention to the rubber seal ring when putting the watch back together.
