You can buy any rubber watch strap and take the loop off for replacement. Just make sure - the strap you buy is exactly the same width as the original ******** your watch. Needless to say: colour should match as well. Rate me, plz.

Trying to change leather watch band. This watch has a narrow space to attach rather than a wide space. Have tried to push pins and they will not move.


The easiest way to insert and remove watch band pins is with a band tool. This small tool has a very small, thin fork on one side, usually made of tempered or hardened steel, that you use to spear one end of the watch pin; you can then quickly and easily apply the leverage needed to pull one end out of its mounting hole. Many watch pins have a small collar at each end designed to catch this forked end. These inexpensive tools are sold at most jewelry supply houses or come as part of a "watch maintenance kit" that can be purchased online or at Harbor Freight. However, you can also solve your problem without this tool.

There are two approaches to removing stubborn band pins without the right wrench. First, you can use a sharp knife blade (a screwdriver blade won't work) to try to grab the end of one of the pin to try to pull it out of its mounting hole. Band pins without collars are usually designed to pull a bit more easily from one side than from the other; if you're not having any success on one side of a pin, try the other. In addition, you might want to wear leather gloves--using this procedure, it's almost certain that the knife blade will slip out of control at least once or twice, and there's a serious risk of accidentally cutting yourself unless your hands are protected. Further, you may gouge a notch in your knife blade, damaging its smooth edge. Still, if you need to preserve the band pins, this is a common way to go. Finally, if you put too much pressure on the mounting hole in a plastic watch case, you run the risk of tearing out the hole. In that case, the watch is now useless as a wristwatch, because you can't attach a new band to it.

On the other hand, if your replacement watch band comes with replacement pins, you don't need the watch pins that are currently mounted in your watch. If that's the case, use a pair of nipper pliers to cut the pin in half. You can either push the old band out of the way, or you can even cut it off to get better access to the pins. If you cut the pin approximately in the center, it should be easy to pull each half out. Conversely, if you cut the pin very close to one edge, you may have a bit of a challenge pulling the short end out--but it's still quite do-able.

I always change out the band pins when I change a wristwatch band, so I have become increasingly fond of cutting the old pins in half and pulling them out if I can't easily get them out with a band tool. Doing so minimizes the risk that I will damage the pin mounting holes in the case. Even in a metal case, elongated mounting holes will not hold a pin as securely, making it easier for the band to spring out and the watch to fall and get damaged.

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.

Shorten the band on a Mossimo watch


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.

  • 2

    Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.

  • 3

    Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.

  • 4

    Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.

  • 5

    Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).


  • Best regards. Jewel

    mcdevito75 here, Best Bet, you may need a special tool to remove and replace the SPRING BARS (PINS) that hold the band onto the watch, then you may even need new spring Bars, (pins) to re-attach the band to rthe watch. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area to change the band.

    How do i change watchband for casio bg169wh


    Take the watch with the broken watchband and place it on the table. With a ruler, measure the width of the broken band at the point where it is attached to the watch. Now, measure the total length of the watchband when it is in one piece and fits around your wrist. There will be a crease on the band where it is normally buckled.
  • Step 2 Go to the local store and select a band that you like. You should make sure that the width of the band at the point of attachment to the watch is the same as the old band. Also make sure that the new band will be long enough and not too long to fit your wrist. Purchase the band and return home to change the band.
  • Step 3 Clear a spot to work and make sure that there is a small towel covering the table top so that you can see anything that may drop or pop out during the process of changing the band.
  • Step 4 Use a magnifying glass to look at the point where one side of the band is attached to the watch. You will see a small pin connecting the band to the watch on either side of the band. Carefully use the jeweler's screwdriver to depress the spring loaded pin from the watch to the band and release it from the watch. When the tension on the spring pin is released it may pop out of the band and you will want to take care not to lose it. Repeat this process with the other half of the band.
  • Step 5 Take the new band and slip the spring pins into the small holes on the end of the band where it will attach to the watch. Working with one end at a time, slip one side into the pin hole in the watch body.
  • Step 6 Use the jeweler's screwdriver to depress the other side of the spring pin and guide it into the pin hole in the other side of the watch body. Repeat this process with the other half of the watchband and other spring pin. You now have a new band for your broken one.
