You can skip the part about removing the split tube. Instead of their pin pushing tool, I used a short piece of straight pin held with long-nose pliers while I squeezed using medium sized channel-lock pliers. A helper to hold the watch would've been good.

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: How do you remove a back off a old seiko watch

If you see the indentations on the case back to accomodate a tool, then you need that tool and unscrew counter clockwise. If you don't see those indentations then the case back then you should be able to pry by using the proper tool. You might be able to use a small bladed tool, like a knife, but be very careful that you dont slip and cut yourself. Go between the case and one of the band posts to get leverage.

My kenetic battery ( i think) operated watch ,N0, on the back plate-


First, does it say "Kinetic" on the face of the watch? If not, it is not a Seiko Kinetic. (You did not mention if it was a Kinetic or not.)

Second, the Serial number is not like any Seiko Kinetic I know, which is 2 4 digit numbers.

Third: The number you gave itself may indicate the type of button battery you need.

Good luck.

The ease of repairing Seiko watches.


No. First off no watchmaker has a "parts account" with Seiko. Seiko only sells watchbands to watchmakers. All other Seiko parts are sold through supply houses.

Seiko parts are not hard to find most times. The very old Seikos will have parts issues and some of the current styles of Japan only Seikos will not have parts available.

Case tubes for all Seiko watches are not available at all.

Finding parts for Seiko watches requires the use of the watches model number which is on the case back of the watch. The number listed in the title is not a model number. The SKA098 is a retailers number so the retailers can reorder the watch. It does not cross reference for parts.

There are many watchmakers that don't want to service Seiko watches so they can and do make up all kinds of stories as to why it is impossible to repair them and so on.

Actually Seiko is much better about parts supply than any of the Swiss watch companies.

Hope this helps.

I traying to find a band for my watch is metal but i do not know it model it call seiko kinetic SQ 100 it is golden all around with white back ground and it has a calender


You can try Seiko for the band. That band is pretty common in both Seiko current models and after market brands such is Speidel.
There is a 18mm metal band that is almost exact from Bariloche available in some watch repair and accessory stores. You can also check Speidel.

I have broken my wrist band for my watch.....


You should be able to purchase a replacement band at any local watch dealer. They will need to measure the width of the band where it connects to the watch, and then can offer you a variety of styles to choose from for a nominal cost.
