More current models do not have holes that go all the way through on the buckle but the spring bar still sits in between. With a small screw driver press in tward the middle of the strap ware the spring bar sits at the end of the leather strap. Pop out the strap and the spring bar and then place it into the slot that fits.

Hello

I bought one while on a buisness trip to China. I like the watch alot but the band was too big. I have a friend who's a jeweler. He fixed the band for free. It does take a special tool (which he had).

Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

Do it hard way, as Rolex watch bracelets are very hard to open. Just use a bit of strength.

Where are the model number and serial number on a rolex


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Look at the side of your watchcase. On the watchcase lugs, located where the watch bracelet is attached, you may see one small hole on each lug where the spring bar is located. This means your Rolex has the traditional pierced lug style. If your Rolex does not have the pierced lug style, turn the watch over, and look for the long spring bar in the space where the bracelet meets the watchcase. The spring bar attaches the bracelet to the watchcase. The directions for removing the spring bar on both watch styles is slightly different.

    Use your thumb to press down on the link where the band meets the watchcase if your Rolex has the pierced lug style.. If your Rolex does not have pierced lugs, turn the Rolex over, and press down on the link where the band meets the case. Either way, you are applying gentle pressure to the same link, just different sides of it. Remember, you are only removing the side of the band at the bottom of the watch, so press on the link below the 6. Maintain gentle pressure on the link while performing the next step.

    Insert the tip of your spring bar tool into the lug holes, and push the spring bar inward. When done correctly, you will feel the spring bar fall into the case, rather than pop back out. Repeat this step on the other side of the spring bar.

    For a nonpierced lug watch, place the tip of your spring bar tool on one edge of the spring bar, and push inward, until the spring bar falls into the case. Repeat this step on the other side of the spring bar.

    Pull the band gently away from the watchcase. It should remove easily. You can now see the serial number on the watchcase.


  • The reference or model number of a Rolex is located between the lugs at the 12' position. It is also listed on the certificates Rolex issues.


    Hope this helps. Jewel

    Changing a Rolex metal watchband to a leather watchband


    Put the watch face down and examine the point where the band is connected to the watch case. you will find two holes and through them you will see sprinbar ends insertyed into watch case lugs. Take the tiny screwdriver and push the springbar end inwards,then do the same at the other lug reaching them through those holes.
    Then repeat the same at the other end of the band.
    Measure the distance between watch case lugs- this will be exact size for your new leather band.

    How to remove links if there are no pins


    All Rolex watch bracelets has screws, not pins. Get small screwdriver and unscrew them.
    If there is no screws at all, that means bracelet links had been removed and you have shortest version allready ,or, this is not the real (genuine) Rolex bracelet.
    Find your nearest watchmaker to clarify all this.
