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.
Watchbands.com has it for $65 I believe. watchbands com
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.
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.
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.
