Question about Peugeot Watches

1 Answer

How do I take out a couple links in the band of a 7056 White Peugeot watch. The pins are not spring loaded like most other watches. The band is plastic and there is only one pin per link. I don't know if the pin is pressed in or what? In that the band is plastic I don't want to brake a link. Can you advise the process for removing a couple of links. I gave the watch to my grandaughter for Christmas.

Hi I just bought this watch for my wife's birthday and we had the same problem, it was too big. I googled and binged for a solution to shortening the band or to remove a link but no one had an answer. I go crazy with things like these and just decided to look at the watch band. First took out the pin for the latch so I can get a better look because that pin can be pressed down. On the inside of the band are arrows. Those arrows indicate which direction the pins can be pushed out. Just push the pin out with a tool, they will require a little pressure but they will give because one end of the pin is bigger than the other. Remove link and enjoy. Hope this helps someone else out there. Just a note this is only for the Peugot 7056 it has a white plastic band and I wouldn't recommend anyone try this with any other model as I don't know how those bands are designed.

Online Factory watch how do I change the band or make it smaller. I don't see any spring pins like a normal watches


There are spring loaded pins inside the end links. I apply a straight pin to the outside holes to retract the link pin enough to release. Real jewelers probably use some sort of special tool to get the same result.

My watch band is too large. How do I make a metal expansion bracelet smaller


There are two ways.

First is to remove links.

Second it to move the pin in the clasp to another hole. Mine has 8 holes for this and you can see them in the side of the clasp. Use a pin to push the pin inwards as they are spring loaded. Do this work on a table with a cloth on it. If you drop the pin on carpet, they can be hard to find.

How to change watch band on invicta angel stainless steel band


Turn the watch over and you will see that the band is attached to the watch with spring loaded pins. There is room to put a spring removal tool in the available slot and depress the spring which will allow you to twist the band away from the watch. Be careful to not loose the spring loaded pin as you may need it to install another band. Almost every watch uses this method of band removal. Those that don't usually have a long screw that is accessible from the side of the watch.

How do I remove links from a Seiko watch band?


Follow these steps and it will help u resize your watch.
1-Take a good look at the watch bracelet. Seiko watch bands are equipped with one of two different types of pins holding the links in place. One type is a simple, nail-shaped pushpin that's inserted into the joint between two links. The second is a flat, L-shaped piece of metal that slides into the center of a link and locks it into place. Both pins are removed using the same process. If the nail-shaped pushpin is present, you'll see the tiny screw heads in the joints. If the L-shaped pin is present, the links will be open-sided and you'll be able to see a strip of metal inserted in each links.
2-
Look for the arrows on the inside of the watch bracelet links. The arrows indicate the direction the pins and links need to be slid off of the band. Any attempt to go against the arrows could break or warp the links.
3-Remove the spring bar from the clasp with the small pin-removal tool. Set the watch up on it's side so that the top of the spring bar is facing up and the bottom is flush against the table. Put moderate pressure on the top of the spring bar and tilt the watch just a bit sideways so that the spring bar can slide out. Ease out the bar slowly and carefully; the spring bar is spring-loaded and will shoot away from the watch if you're not careful (make sure that the bottom of the watch is pointed away from you at all times). Put the spring bar in a small dish so it doesn't get lost.
4-Line up a small pin-removal tool with the top of the pin and push in the direction of the arrow until it slides out completely. Slide off the link. Place the pin and the link in the small dish. You'll want to save them in case the watch needs to be re-sized again at a later date. Continue removing links, alternating sides of the band to keep it even, until the watch reaches the desired size.
5-Reconnect the watch. On the side opposite where the spring bar was removed, line up the link connected to the clasp and the second link on the band. Slide the pin in the opposite direction of the arrow, using a flat-headed pin inserter to push it into the joint. Use the pin-removal tool to give it a final push, listening for the click.
6-
Reinsert the spring bar slowly, using the pin inserter. Make sure the spring bar is lined up and tightly in place to avoid injury.
Try this and it you cant manage it then you need to get it to a watch repair shop specializing in that brand.

I HAVE A PEUGEOT WATCH WITH METAL BAND. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO TAKE OUT LINKS OR SET THE DATE


Today I brought a Ceramic Peugeot watch to a Certified Master Watch Maker who has 50 years of experience and he could not get the pins out to remove links, he stated they were too small and had no tools that size. I have found a service phone number for Peugeot Watches, I plan on calling them when they are open to see what they suggest, I am afraid I will have to send the watch to the service company for sizing.If interested the phone number is 888-223-0026

Is there any way to adjust the band without a special tool?


Use a sturdy pin or thumbtack to push out the pin from the little hole on the link.
Make sure to examine the watch and which links have pins. Some watches are designed to have a row of removable links with pins.
Remove one end of the band from the actual watch itself. Then remove links as you see necessary.
You may need to use something a little stout like a butterknife to tap the pins out from the links.
The pin on the watch itself has spring loaded tips, push them in and it should release the watch from the band.

I need to change my watch band


Where the band meets the watch - push the band a bit to expose the pins that hold it on.. The pins are spring loaded and will compress with the push from a tiny flat screw driver..

You can get replacement bands at most retal stores..

OR - take the watch to WalMart jewlrey dept and find a band that fits and they will help you chang it..

Good luck ;o)

How do i change watchband for casio bg169wh


Take the watch with the broken watchband and place it on the table. With a ruler, measure the width of the broken band at the point where it is attached to the watch. Now, measure the total length of the watchband when it is in one piece and fits around your wrist. There will be a crease on the band where it is normally buckled.
  • Step 2 Go to the local store and select a band that you like. You should make sure that the width of the band at the point of attachment to the watch is the same as the old band. Also make sure that the new band will be long enough and not too long to fit your wrist. Purchase the band and return home to change the band.
  • Step 3 Clear a spot to work and make sure that there is a small towel covering the table top so that you can see anything that may drop or pop out during the process of changing the band.
  • Step 4 Use a magnifying glass to look at the point where one side of the band is attached to the watch. You will see a small pin connecting the band to the watch on either side of the band. Carefully use the jeweler's screwdriver to depress the spring loaded pin from the watch to the band and release it from the watch. When the tension on the spring pin is released it may pop out of the band and you will want to take care not to lose it. Repeat this process with the other half of the band.
  • Step 5 Take the new band and slip the spring pins into the small holes on the end of the band where it will attach to the watch. Working with one end at a time, slip one side into the pin hole in the watch body.
  • Step 6 Use the jeweler's screwdriver to depress the other side of the spring pin and guide it into the pin hole in the other side of the watch body. Repeat this process with the other half of the watchband and other spring pin. You now have a new band for your broken one.

    I NEED A NEW PIN FOR THE g952906 mens watch.


    Yes, you can buy them on eBay. They ate called spring bars or spring loaded pins. All you have to do is to measure the distance between lugs on watch (the place where the band is attached to the watch). This will be exact spring bar size you are after.

    Rate, please.
