SOURCE: Skagen watch band issue

You can find generic bands on Ebay or do a Google search for mesh bands. They come in various widths usually in millimeters so you have to measure the width between the lugs where the band connects to the case of the watch. Do a Google search for nomenclature of what a lug is on a watch if you do not know what I mean.

Does this leather band come out someway ? I can not see any pin holes ? My Husbands wants to switch it out to a buckle clasp instead. Is this possibile with watch ?


yes
under the band at the ends there is a small spring loaded pin that is removed and the band comes out
use something with a sharp edge , press in in beside the leather and then push sideways to compress the spring and the pin will come out
or take it to a jeweller and he will remove and fit the new band in 5 minutes

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.

How can I shorten the watch band. I've tried pushing the pins, but they don;t seem to move. What is the significance of the arrows on the back of the band segments? Thank you for your help!


The arrows show you the direction to push out the pins.
  • Look for an arrow on the inside of your watch band. The direction the arrow is pointing is the direction the pin should slide out of the band. If your pin is screwed in, you may not see an arrow on the inside of your band.
  • 2 Look on the edge of the watch band for a small round object, the pin. If the pin head is flat, then it needs to be pushed out. If the pin head has a screw driver groove, then it needs to be screwed out. Depending on the type of watch pin you have, take a sharp pointed tool or a tiny screw driver from a hobby kit or watch tool kit and place it on the head of the pin. You should be looking at the end of the pin on the opposite side from where the arrow is pointing.
  • 3 Push on the sharp tool to push the pin out of the watch band. You will need to use force to push the pin out. If your pin is screwed in, gently unscrew the pin until it becomes loose. Remove the pin with your fingertips. Make sure to put the pin in a safe place, because you will need it again when resizing the watch band.

    How do you adjust the steel watch band of a Citizen Sky Hawk A-T? JY0000-53E


      Making the Band Shorter
    1. Step 1 Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
    2. Step 2 Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
    3. Step 3 Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
    4. Step 4 Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
    5. Making the Band Longer
    6. Step 1 Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
    7. Step 2 Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
    8. Step 3 Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
    9. Step 4 Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
    10. Step 5 Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.

    Got a wine colored stretch band that the pieces of the band fell off


    I'm sorry to tell you there is no way you can fix it yourself. (Special tools are needed to fix). Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help. note, please: As my answer is negative to you, it is positive to your bracelet (band), so rate me accordingly.

    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.
