No, he asked about a notched band, like on the Graves. Here the watch attaches not across the full 2cm or so but at two 6-7mm lengths around either side of a center protrusion, through which the pin slides.
Each pin consists of a longer part and a shorter end cap with a smaller pin maybe 2mm long that fits into the end of the longer hollow pin. These take a fairly serious pull to take apart, but must be pulled with care, for two reasons: one, so the pieces don't fly off and get lost when the pin comes apart, and two, so you don't accidentally torque the head sideways off the small pin, which is easy to do when you're pulling hard and not being careful. Vise-grips, with maybe thin wood like popsicle stick pieces to cushion the end caps might do, so you don't damage the end pieces as you squeeze, but again be careful. (If you do twist the endcap off its tiny pin, you might be able to glue it back with superglue (cyanoacrylate), but that's a patient precision operation by itself.)
Once the pieces are detached, the long pin will slide through the simple hole in the top and bottom protrusions from the watch case. You can customize your replacement band, set the pins, and gently compress them, again with widemouth pliers and a cushioning, they will go together more easily than they came apart.
Other Stauers use regular pins you can just pop off with the end of a pen knife, but this one is trickier.
Good luck :-)

SOURCE: need to find half replacement band for eclissi watch 23120

This as with most fashion brand watches has to be ordered through the manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer direct or see a retailer for instructions.

SOURCE: HOW IS A STAUER NOTCHED LEATHER WATCHBAND REMOVED

These sound like standard spring loaded pins.

To remove them I use a small screw driver and press it gently against one end of the pin, while pushing it lengthwise.

This compresses the spring and allows the pin to pop out.

(take care where you do this as it may fire out and get lost).

It may take several attempts to get pins out, as you have to experiment with the forces applied to get the right balance.

Putting the pins back in is also a skill. putting the pin into the strap, put one end into it receiving hole and press the other end as far as you can. Move the end in line with the other receiving hole and remove screw driver. It sounds easy but takes a little practice!

Good luck!

SOURCE: HOW DO I CHANGE THE LEATHER BAND ON THIS WATCH?

The springbars can be retracted using a small tweezers but a springbar tool will make it a much easier job. You can get one from Amazon or ebay for under $5 - search "springbar tool" to find them.

If you need an authentic Disney watch band, try asking at a Disney store. However, non-Disney watch bands will fit this watch and may be both better quality and less expensive. Almost any jewelry store, department/discount store jewelry counter, or shopping mall watch kiosk will be able to measure your watch and determine the right size band. Many women's watches in this general style use a 14mm or 16mm band, but you should measure your watch to make certain.

Skagen watch band pins I've remove/changed spring pins other watches several times before but for this watch nothing happening How is it done?


they are very tough they have more pressure on them than most spring pins also on your watch they are tucked into the leather very well. the best way is with a spring tool apply quite a bit of pressure. a normal watch band will not fit this watch. it will only take skagen replacement bands.
