Looking for a replacement watch band for SEIKO SPORTURA HONDA F1 RUBBER BAND/STRAP SNA749P1 Where can I get one and what is the best price for customer in UK?

I've been looking for a replacement for the Seiko SNAE93p1 and have seen the replacement for this in several places. I only remember because it has a red and black band similar to the one on the watch I'm wanting, and I figure that I should get a replacement band when I buy this new watch, as the synthetic bands on Seiko watches tend to break after about 3 years or so. has it for $65 I believe. watchbands com

Put "" into you search engine and you should come to the Seiko instructions list. Scroll down to find your watch and download the instructions.

How to shorten watchband

It all depends on the style of the band.
Go to where the links are all the same size, not tapered at all.
If you have a stretch band, along the edge, unbend the flaps that hold what look liks tiny staples. Pull out what you need removed and put the remailing pieces together.
If you have a non-stretch band, grab a SMALL paperclip about 1/8" from the end. Along the edge of the band you will see the pins that hold it together. Have someone hold the band with the bottom edge of the pin you are removing, over an opening. Between 2 hardback books wirks great. Tap the pliers to drive the pin partially out. Pull it out and do the same to remove as many links as needed. Put the pins back in, in the same direction they came out, from the same side they came out.

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.

Changing a Rolex metal watchband to a leather watchband

Put the watch face down and examine the point where the band is connected to the watch case. you will find two holes and through them you will see sprinbar ends insertyed into watch case lugs. Take the tiny screwdriver and push the springbar end inwards,then do the same at the other lug reaching them through those holes.
Then repeat the same at the other end of the band.
Measure the distance between watch case lugs- this will be exact size for your new leather band.
