SOURCE: Remove link form Relic Wrist band

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

Hope this works for you!

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: I have a Bulova Caravelle

Hi. If you take a tiny screwdriver (one that you might use to screw a screw into an eyeglass and run it gently around the back you will feel an indentation where you can insert the tip and pop open the back. The battery is easy to access but trying to get the back back on is the problem! Good Luck.

SOURCE: does two watches have the same case number??

If you have two sets of numbers that are the same, then I would expect a third number (the serial number) to be present on both watches also.

How do you take the back of a wrist watch off so you can change the battery


The Proper way is with a "watch case wrench". They can be purchased for a few dollars on Amazon and E-bay. In most cases unless you are changing many watch batteries the best option is to call around to local jewelers and pawn shops and ask how much to replace a watch battery. In my town it ranges from $30 to as little as $5.99 battery included.

Admiral pocket watch 7635522 . how old is it and its worth. its swiss, 16 jewels3 adjust ,14 kt gold by tacy watch co


Learn about your watch by following these links. Hope it halps. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/6584638 Cyma was a company name under the Tavannes umbrella of watch co. names. Founded in 1891 by Henri Sandoz (1851-1913) after 20 yrs of success at the helm of his first company, Henri Sandoz and Cie., the Tavannes Watch Co. was known for many patents and new innovations including patents and contributions for repeaters (chiming watches), pocket chronometers (highly accurate pocket watches), marine chronometers (ships clocks), chronographs, extra thin movements, hermetic (waterproof) cases, metal dials, parts of all kinds and even their own shock protection devices. By the 1920's the Tavannes Watch Co., Tacy (short for Tavannes and Cyma) Watch Co. and Cyma Watch Co. were one of Switzerland's most productive and popular manufacturer's with offices in nearly every overseas market. http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=624 What it's worth- only the watchmaker can tell after inspection, as there are too many things to be connsidered (quality of movement and craftmenship, working order, looks, age, state of case, glass, crown, hinges, etc, etc)

Please tell me where the serial and model numbers arre on a Bulova marine Star 100m. men's copycay513@gmail.com


Most of the time you can find the serial and or model number on the first link that is attached to the case of the watch on the back. Often there is a serial number on the back of the case itself. If not in any of these locations you may have to open the case and look on the inside of the case. Be careful with opening case, if you're not comfortable opening the case yourself take it to a reputable jeweler.
If there are no serials on the watch it is probably a knockoff or replica.

Hope this helps.

The second hand on my versace watch moves every 5 seconds,instead of every second.could this just be a low battery or something more serious? 63QC A370173 is the number on the back of the watch case


It sounds like the battery low you suggested.

Take the watch to a Versace service center ( there can be difficulties if you try to replace it yourself or get a local jeweler to replace the battery- it is a comon complaint that watches fail after battery renewal!).

Does the tag heuer wk1113 wrist watch have a serial number on the back case ?


Yes. Its always under the Model Number. Some model numbers were etched, instead of stamped or engaved, on the case and over time may be worn off but on a newer watch it should be visible.

Lock on the eco-drivel wrist watch snapped


IF they still make the same bracelet for your watch you will be able to buy a replacement. If the watch is a leather strap then it is much easier as I can guarantee they will have a compatible strap. Contact citizen to see if they have any metal bracelets or leather straps for this watch.

(Loose numbers)


Any reasonable jeweller will have the tools and skill neede to disassemble this watch, then it should just be a matter of using the correct glue - this will depend on the material of the face and the numbers, but a jeweller would be able to figure this out. If you really want to try yourself then it wouldn't be a particularly complicated job with the right tools, but a jeweller will be able to check if anything else in the watch needs servicing too - it is unusual for the numbers to come off unless moisture has got into the watch or excess heat - both of which are likely to cause much more serious problems in the workings of the watch anyway. If you want to send the watch to Invicta for repair see this site for details; http://www.invictawatch.com/ or call; 1-866-INVICTA mail to; service@invictawatch.com An idea of cost is given on the page linked below although it doesn't specifically list your problem i would imagine it to be around the same as a cleaning, possibly a little more; http://www.invictawatch.com/support_files/service_center/ServiceCenter.htm Hope this helps :)
