It is spring loaded. They make a special tool for removal, but you can manage without it. (see here). You need to take a small jeweler's screwdriver and compress the springbar (pin) along the length of it's axis, by pushing against the collar on the end of the pin where it inserts into the watch body. When you get it compresssed enough to clear the socket, pull gently on the band to disengage that side of the band from the watch. Reverse for insertion.

    The pins were in quite tight, but I finally broke them loose. After that re-assemble was easy. Thanks for your help!

My Fendi watch needs a battery where can I get it in DES Moines, IA?


Many jewelers work on watches. Sometimes you can get the batteries replaced at stores like Wal-Mart or Target in the jewelry dept. But if it's a nice watch that you don't want to take a chance with, find a jeweler who does it. It may cost you a few dollars more, but they won't scratch up the watch. I have a lot of inexpensive watches that I change out the battery myself, but the special ones I take to my local jeweler. The cost is approx. $1.00 for a 4-pack of batteries at the dollar store, vs. approx. $6 to $8 each at the jeweler.

Strap broken on timex heart rate monitor watch 30 lap ironman triathlon need a replacement


Hi, Almost any large dealer like Wal-Mart, Sears, or Target will have Timex replacement straps and bands for most popular watches and monitors. Sometimes a local Authorized Dealer will have specialized products that the department stores don't even carry without ordering.

I have had good luck with Wal-Mart on watch accessories. I've also ordered straight from Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas, ph. 1-800-448-4639, but it usually takes more time for just parts.

Thanks, Bill

Hi,

Check Wal-Mart, Sears, Target, or other large department stores. Many carry a good selection of replacement bands for Timex. If you still don't find one call Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas at 1-800-448-4239.

I hope this will help you replace your band.

Thanks, Bill

Leather watch bands are broken


The "gizmo" would be the pin that attaches the watch to the case. You can easily purchase a replacement pin or strap at any store that has watches (even Wal-Mart). These are very inexpensive and each one will cost you less than $10.

Broken wrist band


The easiest is to bring it to Wal-Mart, or another store with a watch section in their store, if you buy a new wrist band, they;ll put it on for free. If you're feeling DIY, pull the watch band to the side, untill the metal bar inside is ejected form the slot in the watch, from there, insert the new band's bar into the slot, and voila!
