Get pen knife and insert the blade between the watch strap and watch lug from the bottom side. Pry the springbar inwards using lever action. This must release the springbar.

How to exchange leather straps for almost any watch brand


Most of the people are pretty sure that when their watch leather straps are worn out they have to replace them with new ones, made by exactly the same brand as their watch brand is. This is completely wrong. About 95% of all watch brand models can be fitted with leather straps from any watch strap producer without loosing brands identity. All you have to do is: 1. Release the strap from the watch; 2. Measure the width of the strap where the spring bar (pin) goes through and write it down or memorize it; 3. Undo the buckle/clasp; 4. Measure the width of strap in place where the buckle/clasp was fitted and write it down or memorize it; 5. Measure the length of the strap (both parts together) and write it down or memorize it. Now you have everything you need for strap replacement. Visit any shop selling leather straps or even find it on the internet. You will find thousands of different colours, patterns and leather variations. The choice is yours. Just one thing to remember: The strap you are buying must match all the measurements you took of your original strap. This is not difficult to match, as the watch straps usually are made to global standards. When you have your new strap delivered, just fit it to your watch and undo the buckle/clasp that came with it. Fit your old, original buckle/clasp on to the new strap and you are done. Most watch manufacturers impress, engrave or laser engrave their logos on buckles/clasps, not on the leather straps itself. So, when you fit the original buckle/clasp on brand new strap of different make, it becomes the original strap of the watch you own. And nobody knows that the strap is, for example, from Hong Kong, but watch is from Switzerland (except you, of course} as they look together as one nicely designed piece and the buckle/clasp works as the proof of identity. In case if your watch has some unusually shaped fixing for the strap, this shape can be easily cut in to the strap by modellers scalpel. At the very end I just want to remind to all readers: Watch straps sold under watch brand names are 2-10 times more expensive. In fact - they are not produced by watch manufacturers themselves, but in Italy, Germany, China and Hong Kong and then sent to watch manufacturers. Just because these straps were fitted to the watches and the buckles or clasps were added to them, these straps automatically becomes their brand straps and cost a lot, lot more. Hope it helps to save your hard earned money.

How to change the size of the strap?


I don't know for the swatch specifically but all watches are roughly the same beast. If you look at the side you will notice small pins on the band. With a very small jewelers screw driver and some light tapping you can pop the pins out. The end connections near the watch and then on the clasp side are usually spring loaded which can be removed with a tiny flat blade as well. Just tap out the pins and keep track of them, you will need to tap them back in once you have removed the extra link to make this smaller.

Where can I buy a watch strap (double pin) for a Fossil FS3041?


mcdevito75 here, You can but a new strap for your Fissil watch almost any where, Ebay, or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area as they would have the watch right there for a perfect fit. With anything else you"ll need to know the MM size of your strap. As the strap attaches to the watch case at the pins, simply measure in MM"s this is the size of the band you need, if you can only measure in Standard Measurement use the search online for conversion Inches to MM. But with a watch shop they do everything for you.

Skagen watch band pins I've remove/changed spring pins other watches several times before but for this watch nothing happening How is it done?


they are very tough they have more pressure on them than most spring pins also on your watch they are tucked into the leather very well. the best way is with a spring tool apply quite a bit of pressure. a normal watch band will not fit this watch. it will only take skagen replacement bands.

Where ca I buy A new stainless steel strap and pins for my tcm chronograph quartz 20 bar watch serial number 234245


As long as it's not a strap exclusive to your watch, you should be able to take it to any jeweler who sells watches or a watch selling kiosk in a mall. I wouldn't take it to a store like Wal-Mart, just because they have no requirements for their employee's to know a crown from a clasp, for them to work in the jewelry area.

Spare parts??


If you approach a watch repairer, he should have a range of standard pins, one of which should fit your watch.
