Band sizes can be reduced by taking out sections. This is done by using a narrow tool to drive the jointing pins out.

You need specially small probes to do this and unless you have one, it is best to take it to a watch shop to do it for you.

Maxum Watch Band X6003L2 - Australia Need a replacement band, but distributor says it can only replace whole watch not band. It is only 18 months old. Any advice?


You might be able to replace the band with a generic watch band (meaning a band that will fit the watch but is not the exact band that it came with) Some good companies would be speidel or Hadley Roma to get the bands from. Just find out the millimeter length (or the size of the band) and you probably could change it.

I need new band


If you need a new band for RADO watch, you can pop in any watch shop and choose whichever band you like. The only thing you have to remember is; get the right size. Right size for you watch is the size between lugs in millimetres. Lugs are the things where the band gets attached to the watch. Measure that distance - this is the size of band you are looking for.If you are after original Rado band, then you will have to pop into your nearest Rado dealer shop and order it. The real thing will be far more costly.

Need to change size of timex expansion band


Hi,

Take the watch to your local Jeweler that you trust. They have the proper equipment to do the job effeciently and quickly. The jeweler may not even charge you to just downsize the band. Make sure you keep the extra links. If you have to have extra links added, that will cost a little more. Done properly, without damaging/scratching the band, or watch...will be worth the expense.

Thanks, Bill

Pins keep popping out when watch band gets snagged. What size are the pins for watch band?


mcdevito75 here, These pins may be a bit worn in the band of your watch, if so, you"d have to order a kit with various size pins for replacement. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop to fit new pins in the band.

How do i change watchband for casio bg169wh


Take the watch with the broken watchband and place it on the table. With a ruler, measure the width of the broken band at the point where it is attached to the watch. Now, measure the total length of the watchband when it is in one piece and fits around your wrist. There will be a crease on the band where it is normally buckled.
  • Step 2 Go to the local store and select a band that you like. You should make sure that the width of the band at the point of attachment to the watch is the same as the old band. Also make sure that the new band will be long enough and not too long to fit your wrist. Purchase the band and return home to change the band.
  • Step 3 Clear a spot to work and make sure that there is a small towel covering the table top so that you can see anything that may drop or pop out during the process of changing the band.
  • Step 4 Use a magnifying glass to look at the point where one side of the band is attached to the watch. You will see a small pin connecting the band to the watch on either side of the band. Carefully use the jeweler's screwdriver to depress the spring loaded pin from the watch to the band and release it from the watch. When the tension on the spring pin is released it may pop out of the band and you will want to take care not to lose it. Repeat this process with the other half of the band.
  • Step 5 Take the new band and slip the spring pins into the small holes on the end of the band where it will attach to the watch. Working with one end at a time, slip one side into the pin hole in the watch body.
  • Step 6 Use the jeweler's screwdriver to depress the other side of the spring pin and guide it into the pin hole in the other side of the watch body. Repeat this process with the other half of the watchband and other spring pin. You now have a new band for your broken one.

    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.

    Rate me, plesae.
