Question about Kenneth Cole KC1232 Wrist Watch

1 Answer

Watch strap I have owned this watch for only 1.5 years, and already the strap has broken twice. The first time I had great difficulty finding a new strap but managed it in the end, sending the whole thing away to a place I had never heard of before. It has broken again, tho, and the people I used the first time seem to have closed business and moved away. Does anyone know where I can get a new strap for this watch? It is what I think is known as a 'fitted' strap, meaning that not any strap will do. Thanks in advance for your help. Mike

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.

I own a titanium luminox and I have replaced the pins that attach the band to the watch it self twice. Where can I find Heavy Duty pins or something? Can I buy a repair kit to install the pins? Thanks in...

I used to have similar problems when I used to used leather (rigid) straps. I found that flexing the wrist used to pull the straps off the watch.

I got over the problem by using expanding bracelet. I have never had the problem since (30 years!).

The strap is broken on casio watch

I had exactly the same problem with exactly the same model watch, and it happened to me twice. The AQ-160 is the important part of the model number as far as replacement parts are concerned. The first time, I took it to the shop where I bought the watch, and they replaced the band, but it cost me $50. The second time, I looked up the Web for the master agent for Casio in Australia, and they said I could buy the end piece, not the whole band, for $6. I found I could replace it quite easily myself by using a drawing pin to remove the spring pin that holds it together. A bit fiddly to reassemble but not too bad. In fact, I didn't wait for the new part to arrive, just used the unbroken end of the old band. So now I have a repaired band plus the old band and a new end piece, in case it ever happens again.

I really like this watch, but it is a pity the bands are so weak.

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.

How do you replace the watch band on a casio g-shock

The following proccedure mentioned can be implied for replacing only resin(plastic) strap.

If you have a spare Band, you can replace it with the help of one small four mouth screw driver and one small 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which you can get from any electronics/ computer hardware shop.

Band = Strap

You just need to remove the strap with the help of 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which ever you find convinent by removing the Spring Bars. After removing the strap put out spring bars from both sides as these may be used for again fixing the band.

If you find difficulty in removing the Band, you just need to unscrew the screws on for side of the watch case and remove the ring and after fixing the strap you can fix the ring again.

The new band can be fixed in the same way as it has been removed. You need to put the spring bar in the hollow space of strap and keeping the buckle side part of starp above the watch i.e 12 position over the space where it has to be fixed, then put one end of the Spring bar on one hole in the watch case and press the spring bar to get inside from other side (hole in the watch case). In the same way you can replace ******** other side.

In case of any difficulty take your watch to nearest Casio Service Centre for assistance or solution of problem.
