SOURCE: discolored white nautica watch band

If your watch band have UV sensitive pigmentation in it, there is nothing you can do, but buy the new band.
Find your nearest jeweller and ask to clean watch band in ultrasonic cleaner for 1 hour. If this kind of cleaning doesn't help, that means your watch band is UV sensitive and is and will be discolouring more and more by the time.
Alternatively you can try to clean it with the lighter fluid (ZIPPO). Soak a soft cloth in to lighter fluid and clean the band. Start with a small area inside band to make sure the fluid is not reacting as dissolver, as some resins react quite vigorously and tend to transform into chewing gum sort of state.
And again- if this cleaning doesn't help, the band is UV sensitive and discolouring is taking place.
That discolouring is happening becouse some of the colour pigments used in resin manufacture are sensitive to ultraviolet light and when exposed to sunlight or daylight, they react in a chemical
way, changing molecular structure, wich we see as the colour change.This process can not be reversed and this is why the band can not be cleaned.
Do not forget to rate please.

My fossil Stella clear watchband needs cleaning how do you get this clean?


Unfortunately it is a part of wear and tear of the that material. The longer you used it with an acidic sweat it will continue to discolor. Try washing it with mild soap and water after every used. That's also my problem before with my watch.

How do i take a link out of my stella watch?


mcdevito75 here, Genearlly removeing the bands links are more common with Mens watches but some womans watches also have this option, the links are held together with pins which require a link pin remover tool so these pins don"t get bent. Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your araea and have them remove a link or two, also hold onto these removed links in case you need them again.

I have a calumet watch, and the band is getting dirty. Is there a way to clean the band?


Polyurethane Band
Polyurethane Bands, which are made of soft plastic, may turn hard after 2-3 year's use. Colour fading can also be seen.
If bands are kept wet and in highly humid locations or are exposed to sunlight for a long time, the deterioration of the bands may be accelerated in a relatively short period and some cracks may appear on the band surface. (This is called 'hydrolytic cleavage of polyurethane')
Kindly pay attention to the condition of polyurethane bands, which are often worn in such occasions as marine sports/outdoor activities
  • We recommend immediate exchange when your polyurethane band loses elasticity or develops cracks.
  • Semi-transparent/white/fair coloured polyurethane band may turn a different colour due to light/stain ( or sometimes may absorb colours from other materials). In addition, polyurethane bands have many small holes on the surface, which easily catch and hold stains/other different colour material. Thus it is rather tough to entirely clean polyurethane bands. Kindly replace current polyurethane band with a new one when you find extreme discolouration.
  • There exist some sorts of stains (like oil/cosmetics), which cannot be removed off. Smoking cigarette/long time use may turn the colour yellowish.

CAUTION!
Do not use solvent/chemicals (benzene/thinner/breach) for band/bracelet cleaning!

White band turned yellow


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the chlorine in the pool water dis-colored the band, not to mention, possibley the watches mechanism also. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for a new band and possible remedy for the water inside the watch.
