Any watch shop or jeweler should have an assortment of replacement bands suitable for most watches or can order a specific brand if desired.

How do I add a link to the wristband?

Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Turn your watch on its side so the links are vertical. On the inside of the links closest to the clasp you can see arrows, which point in the direction that the pins must be pushed out. Only about four links on either side of the clasp have arrows, because these are the only links with removable pins. On the edge of the links on the opposite end from where the arrow is pointing you will see a small circle where the pin is inserted.

    Place the tip of your pointed tool on the small circle mentioned in Step 1. Push downward on the pin in the direction the arrow is pointing. Once the pin starts to come out of the link, use your fingertips or a pair of tweezers to completely remove the pin from the link. You may need to use force, but be careful not to scratch your watchband. Use a pointed tool from a jeweler's or hobby kit or watch pin removal tool.

  • 3

    Slide the links apart where you removed the pin so there is a gap in the watchband. Slide your new link into the gap and fit the neighboring links into the new link so it matches the rest of the watchband.

    Insert the new pin into the watchband. You will need to insert two pins, the pin you moved in Step 2 and your new pin, into the two empty pin holes. You need to insert the pin small end first so the larger pin head does not pass through the link. Insert the pin against the direction of the arrow rather than in the direction the arrow is pointing like you did in Step 2. Use your pointed tool and your fingertips to push the pins completely in the links until the pin head is flush with the edge of the link.

  • Best regards. Jewel

    Omega watchband adjustment (Metal) pins or screws?

    mcdevito75 here, That would depend on the band itself, I would figure most are pins, your best bet though is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this adjustment, special tool needed.

    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.
