Thanks for contacting FixYa.
Is this a new watch?? If it is, I would go back to the shop for a replacement.
If its not new, then my suggestion is to try another repair shop. I agree it is risky to try to tighten. Usually requires pounding it the opposite direction it is curved.
Only other suggestion is to send to Movado and that will be costly.
I would honestly check other local watch makers, preferably one that sells Movado.
Best regards.

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.

try to change your settings of your clock by getting it full circle to get back to real time and see what happens. if still problem persist then you might send it to repair service or it should have warranty service for an expensive watch. hope that helps!

As with luxury bags, luxury watch brands such as Movado are copied and sold illegally. Movado watches are popular among both men and women, but sellers of replica watches hurt the brand by providing the buyer with poor craftsmanship. Dealers know what genuine Movado watches look like, and they are familiar with the watch model names and numbering system. While you can take your watch to a dealer to closely inspect its authenticity, you, too, can learn how to tell if your Movado watch is fake by noting a few details.

Check the material the watch is made of. Replica watches are made of aluminum, and they don't have the same heavy weight of an authentic Movado. Movado watches should feel like quality, solid pieces. True Movado watches are made of stainless steel.Observe the movement of the watch. The movement of the second hand should not be erratic or shaky. It should look smooth as it travels across the face of the watch.
Look closely for scratches on the glass face. Movado watches are scratch resistant, so any imperfection on the face is a telling sign that it's fake. Hold the face to the light and observe if it gleams like a genuine watch. If it's dull or cloudy, it's not authentic. Also, look for the inscription "Swiss Movado Made" to make sure it's authentic.
Feel the links and the clasp on the watch. Clasps should feel solid, and the links should be joined together by screws. Gently pull on the clasps and check for any loose pins. If the clasps feel fragile, it's probably fake.

mcdevito75 here, Without seeing the watch it"s hard to tell, but I would figure the clasp could be repaired, but the cost may equal a new band and clasp. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area and compare repair cost of the clasp with that of a new band.

Broken Watch band


you probably just need a pin to secure the links back together. an authorized Movado retailer will have the tension or screw pins to put the band back together. They can also order additional links if needed. you can find a local retailer on www.movado.com

It probibly is a tri-fold clasp or a "hiding clasp" When you look at you watch can you see a clasp? If not you just need to pull from the middle if the back of the band. One end will open to the left another will open to the right. Don't be afraid to pull on it, that probibly is the main problem your having. Movado makes a solid band that can take some punishment

I cant open my brand new watch ...HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!


I just recieved a Moldavo Men's Junior Sport (Model # 0605105 with certificate of authenticity) as an award -- but the instructions didn't bother explaining how to put the watch on!

For any hidden clasp band, see this web page (excerpt below):
http://www.worldofwatches.com/cust/sizingwatch.asp?d=0

Refer to the "Hidden Clasp" diagram and follow the instructions under the diagram:

cad9c3e.jpg To open this clasp, reach under the bracelet band and lift upwards. The band extends to allow for easy removal.
