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.

I need to adjust my Style&Co SC1325 watchband, what can I do?


Your picture clearly shows the small arrows (on the inside of the band) the way the watch band pins need to be removed. You'll need a very small needle and a small hammer to drive the pins out in the direction of the arrows. Remove links evenly on both sides so the clasp is centered.

Once you fell you have removed enough links to fit your wrist, drive the pins back in reverse direction from the arrows, and set them smooth to the touch. If you can push the pins in to the hole just beneath flush, with your needle and hammer, it'll keep the pin from snagging your sweaters.

If all else fails most jewelry stores charge less than $10 to remove links. Have fun. It's not hard.

How to change the size of the strap?


I don't know for the swatch specifically but all watches are roughly the same beast. If you look at the side you will notice small pins on the band. With a very small jewelers screw driver and some light tapping you can pop the pins out. The end connections near the watch and then on the clasp side are usually spring loaded which can be removed with a tiny flat blade as well. Just tap out the pins and keep track of them, you will need to tap them back in once you have removed the extra link to make this smaller.

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.

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?


Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.

But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
  • Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
  • Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
  • Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
  • Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
  • Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.

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.

    My daughter gave me a Timex wristwatch (Indiglo waterprood, two tone, with day of month display for Christmas. The band is a bit big. How do I adjus it? It's not a twist o flex.


    You just need a tool to push the pin out. Make sure to push the pins in the direction that the arrow points. DO NOT try to do this with any sharp object as you will ruin the band and ultimately the pins. You need a specific tool to do this as you it applies a quick "burst" of pressure to the pin which pops it out. You can buy this tool online at an inexpensive price (search: watch sizing tool), but if you don't have a huge watch collection I would just suggest going to your local jeweler to have it sized. I size all of my own watches, but I have been doing this for years. I would not want you to ruin your band or the pins by doing this incorrectly. It will probably cost you $10+ to have it sized at a jeweler, but you will be paying around the same for a tool. While this may seem like an annoying cost to pay, I assure you that it's quite normal, and almost everyone needs to have their watch sized. Watch companies make their watches big on purpose so that if you are a larger person you will not have to pay for extra links or special order them. Depending on where she bought the watch, they might even be able to size the watch for free (if they have the tools I am 99% sure they will size it for free as most places offer free sizing if you bought the watch from them). Even Wal-Mart offers free watch sizing if you purchased it from that specific location (this doesn't apply if you purchased the watch online though). Although the pin looks like it can be pushed out with a pen or something else sharp, please don't attempt this. I previously worked at a jewelry counter and can't tell you the number of ruined watches I have seen by people attempting to size their watches without the correct tools. Most stores will not let you return/exchange a watch that has been damaged if the customer has attempted to size it themselves either.

    Hope this helps!

    Need pin for band on Fossil Am 3754


    Measure distance between the lugs of your watch. Find the nearest watchmaker and ask for spring lug of that size (this is if you need to attach band to watch).
    If you need a pin for bracelet links- measure width of bracelet and ask for split pin of that size.
