Adjusting the strap

I was given as a gift a Versace Watch with leather strap. I noticed it has this steel thing attached to the strap.

Any idea how one goes about adjusting the strap to one's fit on the wrist on this??

Re: Adjusting the strap

Most clasps have a series of small holes drilled in them, and the end of the strap is held in by a small, spring-loaded bar whose ends are seated in one set of holes. Take the end of a small paperclip, or a large needle, and use it to depress the spring-loaded pin. You can then carefully slide it to another set of holes to make the band smaller. Don't let the ends of the pin slide all the way out of the clasp, or it might shoot off into space.

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.

The watch part number and a knowledgeable watch maker will provide the correct bracelet. If you WANT a leather strap most models can accept one - unless the case is sculpted to integrate seamlessly with the bracelet, in which case you may not be able to insert the spring bars that are necessary to mount the strap.

Setting time on a Versace elissi watch

An interesting problem!

Looking at the pictures (only ones from the front are available on their web site), it would appear that the only features that go inside the case are the strap attachment lugs. Could one of them pullout and turn?

If all else fails, go to "" and go to the bottom of the page. Put your cursor over "watches and fine jewelery" and a dropdown menu appears. Select customer care or stores and find out where you can get advice.

Mens Versace leather strap. How do I adjust the band ? The watch has a cream face, square in shape, chronograph with a brown elather strap. Clip requires adjusting and cant work out how to adjust..

Well i am going to roll the dice and assume you have one of the ez clasps but if I am wrong you can send the model number and we will figure it out.

To adjust the ez clasp pull up on the front of the clasp loop while pushing down on the band. Rather than the traditional buckle and prong set up, the prong here is underneath the clasp loop.

Hope this helps. Thanks!

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.
