Question about Watches

Open Question

Several years ago I purchased a Radio Shack Golf Scorekeeper Watch. It has worked wonderfully!. However, the watch band needs to be replaced and my local jeweler can not find a band that fits. Can you help direct me to a source for this watch band?

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 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.
Don't forget to rate, please.

Skagen replacement band


I am facing the same issue as you. I have a Skagen 311LTRB watch without a band. I purchased the watch without a band, so I don't even know what the original band looks like.

It seems strange to me that Google doesn't even find that model of Skagen watch when you search on the model number. Makes me wonder if the watch is fake or real.

What I did was purchase an 18 mm mesh band and two pins from the following seller on eBay: "BandFever" / "18mm SILVER MESH WATCH BAND,COMES WITH 2 SPRING BARS". It only cost $12.95 with free shipping.

After installing the band, I am now able to wear the watch. And it feels very comfortable with the mesh band. However, it looks a littly dorky because there are overhangs on each side of the watch where the bands attach. I keep wondering what the watch appeared like when it was new with its original band.

Wish I could paste an image of the watch, but that doesn't seem to be allowed.

WE NEED A NEW WATCH BAND FOR OUR F187GWBS NOT SURE WERE TO BUY ONE. WARRANTY COMPANY OUT OF BUSSINESS


If you are talking about the Field & Stream F187GWBS men's wristwatch, you can purchase replacement generic watch bands at a variety of locations. This watch takes a 22mm width band, and you can replace the original stainless steel band with a leather band for comfort or find a different brand of stainless bands.
If you prefer not to replace your own band, you still don't need a full-service, premium-priced jewelry store. Their replacement watch bands are also often twice as expensive as ones you can find at a discount store or in a shopping mall watch kiosk. Many watch kiosks offer free or low-cost band replacement if you purchase a band from them.

Need a new watch band


mcdevito75 here, Ebay is a great place for your watch band, but you should know the watch band size in MM, or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area.

I need a replacement watch strap.


Most watches have a similar strap fixing method, so you might be able to get a replacement strap from any watch retailer.

The shop should be able to advise you if they cannot provide you with a replacement.

Casio G-Shock GW-300 replacement bands


I have a Casio g-shock gw-330a and now find myself again replacing the band. So far, $60 on bands. They last me two or three years. To install the band, take the band and watch to a Jeweler. My local Sears does it for me. $5 for installation; $5 for purchase shipping; $20 for band. $30 every couple of years.
This cost disturbs me.
