SOURCE: Remove link form Relic Wrist band

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

Hope this works for you!

You can find here step-by-step instructions with pictures:

How to shorten a metal watchband

It is for a casio watch, but the watchband has the same principle with "arrows" on the links.

SOURCE: Brand new watch won't work

Check your users manual if your watch have two batteries. If yes, you need to replace digital part battery.
If your watch has only one battery, your digital screen or plate is defective. Bring it back to the retailer and ask to replace for the decently working watch.
But first of all try to fiddle with all pushbattons- sometimes it helps.

SOURCE: Invicta 2875 wrist watch band too large

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: How do I shorten the watchband to fit my wrist?

If you turn the band inside out...and stretch it...you will see either 2 or 4 small tabs per section. Use a jewelers screwdriver to lift up each tab per section and slide that section out. Now it will be easy to take other sections out as you won't have to maintain pressure on the band. Reassembly is reverse order.

I have an new band for the G-shock 500A but can't figure how to get the screws out of the old band to replace it. The screws turn both ways and don't seem to move. Is there some trick or special tool I...


Yes, You need two screwdrivers. One for each side. One screw on one side is long and goes all the way through the watchband and threads into the screw oon the other side which is smaller. Once you have backed the longer screw all the way out, you should be able to give the watch band a few light taps and the long screw should fall out. The screw on the aother side may require a bit more tapping or coaxing with the screwdriver to remove it. Once both screws are out, you can remove the watchband.

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.

I have two lovely gold vicence watches, one is round with a turquoise backing, the other is oval, or oblong with gold background. They came with a nice leather band. they are pretty stiff and don't really...


Unfortunately Vicence does not do such a service, but do not panic yet, as you can go to the nearest jewellery shop and ask to fit any gold bracelet you choose. Just take your watches with you, because the jeweller will need to get measurements between case lugs and the overall length of the new bracelet and watch to fit your wrist perfectly.
