Broken Armani sign


Yes it can be fixed but may need a jeweller. You cannot take the glass face out on it own, you have to remove the watch back plate and then pull out the watch mechanism. (Once the back plate is off removing the mechanism is not difficult) You then have access to both the inside glass face and the watch face. If you can do this you will need to glue the Armani logo with something like super glue, but not applied directly to watch, too risky. If you have tweezers hold the Armani logo in them. Use a pin and dip it into a small blob of super glue, apply the pin to the back of the logo and then place it on the watch face as quickly as possible and align. Once aligned apply a little pressure with the tweezers on the logo to help adhere, about 5 seconds, leave to dry and then put watch back together. If this all seems to difficult a jeweller can do it in about ten minutes.

Blank displayI have tried to reset this with no success Any ideas will be gratefully welcome


Have you considered that a dead battery might be the cause of this. They don't last longer than a year. I would not attempt to change the battery on your own if you would miss this watch if you broke it. I change batteries nearly everyday and the digital ones are by far the most difficult. If you did change the battery on your own already the reason it is not working is because you negated to short the battery. Digital watches sometimes need to be shorted after a battery replacement to turn back on take a pair of metal tweezers and put one end on the positive side of the battery. Look for a little hole with a contact on it that's either A/C or reset. Put the other end of the tweezers here. If that doesn't work a tiny spring feel out of the watch is not replaceable and you must therefore replace the watch if that is the case. Hope this helps.

How is a stauer notched leather watch band removed and replaced


No, he asked about a notched band, like on the Graves. Here the watch attaches not across the full 2cm or so but at two 6-7mm lengths around either side of a center protrusion, through which the pin slides.
Each pin consists of a longer part and a shorter end cap with a smaller pin maybe 2mm long that fits into the end of the longer hollow pin. These take a fairly serious pull to take apart, but must be pulled with care, for two reasons: one, so the pieces don't fly off and get lost when the pin comes apart, and two, so you don't accidentally torque the head sideways off the small pin, which is easy to do when you're pulling hard and not being careful. Vise-grips, with maybe thin wood like popsicle stick pieces to cushion the end caps might do, so you don't damage the end pieces as you squeeze, but again be careful. (If you do twist the endcap off its tiny pin, you might be able to glue it back with superglue (cyanoacrylate), but that's a patient precision operation by itself.)
Once the pieces are detached, the long pin will slide through the simple hole in the top and bottom protrusions from the watch case. You can customize your replacement band, set the pins, and gently compress them, again with widemouth pliers and a cushioning, they will go together more easily than they came apart.
Other Stauers use regular pins you can just pop off with the end of a pen knife, but this one is trickier.
Good luck :-)

I have a Relic ladies watch that I wear all the time and just love. I recently had the pin to brake that holds the watch to the band. The jewelry store repair man had to drill the pin out to replace it...


mcdevito75 here, That pin is called a spring bar and is used to hold the band to the watch, the pin must be frozen in place on the watch, Best Bet is to try another jewelery shop, in the meantime you can put a drop or 2 of cooking oil on the pin just as it meets the watch this may loosen the remaining portion of pin.

The rubber band broke on my seiko dive watch--unable to get the pins out without breaking them--any suggestions on removing the pins


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.

I have 4 seiko watches that no longer work. Most unreliable watch


mcdevito75 here, hello Diane, I'm afraid your jeweler is correct, and so are you. It is adviseable to pull the stem out to save the battery BUT, only if your not going to wear your watch for a long time, not just over night, here"s the problem!! the quartz mechanism and most of the works are plastic, and plastic while fairly flexable when new, gets hard over time, your pulling the stem to stop the watch everyday or even once a week most likely broke the switch in the mechanism that starts the watch, if so your only option is to replace the movement if you can get one. Pull the stem to stop your watch only if your not going to wear your watch for say 2 weeks toa month.

I drilled a coupleof very small holes in the plastic part of the case and also in the watch band where it attaches to the case. I mixed strong epoxy glue (two part) and held the two pieces together with clamps over night. That was 6 months ago and it is still holding. The holes helped squeeze the glue into the joint. Good Luck!

Replacement band for nike watch wa0018 oregon alt


I wear the smaller, womens' version of the Nike Oregon. Nice watch. I was attracted to it by the replaceable battery feature, but found out the strap goes long before the battery and the joy of ownership goes out the window with the price of Nike wrist-band replacement. I held onto my broken banded watch for awhile, and came up with a solution. First, don't try removing the screws that secure the watch-band pins. Not sure how they work, but I tried several times without luck. Even had a jeweler look at it without success.

I went to Kohl's and purchased a black velcro Timex replacement band for $8. Again this is the for the smaller version of the Oregon. The width of the timex band in 3/4". It includes a elastic band to secure the watch. This elastic band runs under the back of the watch and over the two pins. It is secured to a faux leather tab (with emblems), which is in turn attached to the velco band. Using a razor knife, I detached the faux leather pad from the velcro band and ran it under the watch pins, then reattached it with a touch of Gorilla glue. Be careful to wipe off any excess as Gorilla glue expands as it dries. Finally I blacked out the Timex advertising with a black felt permanent marker.

No reason to think this wouldn't work on the larger, mens' version of the same watch.

How to adjust the band on a aquaswiss trax watch


Warning: This is if you don't have any professional watch tools. And I definitely recommend you taking it to a jeweler first.

That being said...

I was able to adjust my band by using a small nail and a pair of needle nose pliers...and Krazy Glue or Super Glue (last warning...you really should take it to pro)...

1. Push the any one of the pins that holds the wristband together until you see it protrude from the other side. While applying pressure to the pin, quickly grab it from the protruding side with the needle nose pliers and pull off the metal cap from the pin.

2. Note you will notice that the pins are actually 2 pieces! They are not screwed together and it makes for a pretty poor design since, one the pins are taken out and then replaced after taking out the appropriate links... they tend to get loose and you will lose that tiny metal cap that holds the pin in place.

3. A professional will have a clamp that is small enough to press these two pieces together. But even that is precarious. I strongly recommend that you carefully apply a drop of crazy glue on each end of the pin, after you are finished.

Final note: I was luck to have spare pins from the links I removed to replace the pin that worked out of its cap. That little sucker is lost to the watch gods. Have fun! Also... you can make final adjustments at the 3 pin location at the wristband release.

Hope this was helpful!
