First put the pin in the bottom lug of the watch ( the pins is in the band already). Then take a small flat head screwdriver ( found at Radio Shack, or any electronics store). If youn can, take a small file and file out the inside of the flathead so that it looks like a "U". put it over yhe pin and press down as youslide the pin into the lugs hole on top. If you can't cut the srewdreiver out, just take the flat side of it and press down on the pin and push in accordingly. Without "U" shaping the screwdriver, it may take a few tries. Good Luck!! If you still have problems please let me know!!

Need to replace my leather watch band on my goofy watch with an authentic disney band. it is leather with no characters on the band & underside is stamped with disney made in china. Need size &...


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.

Strap broken on timex heart rate monitor watch 30 lap ironman triathlon need a replacement


Hi, Almost any large dealer like Wal-Mart, Sears, or Target will have Timex replacement straps and bands for most popular watches and monitors. Sometimes a local Authorized Dealer will have specialized products that the department stores don't even carry without ordering.

I have had good luck with Wal-Mart on watch accessories. I've also ordered straight from Timex in Little Rock, Arkansas, ph. 1-800-448-4639, but it usually takes more time for just parts.

Thanks, Bill

The rubber band broke on my seiko dive watch--unable to get the pins out without breaking them--any suggestions on removing the pins


mcdevito75 here, Best Bet, you may need a special tool to remove and replace the SPRING BARS (PINS) that hold the band onto the watch, then you may even need new spring Bars, (pins) to re-attach the band to rthe watch. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop in your area to change the band.

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.

Replacing watch band on pathfinder pas410. can't get pins out to replace band.


Watchmakers use special tool to release spring bars, but it is possible to release them in home conditions. Place your watch on flat surface face down. Using pocket knife insert the blade between band and the watch lug where the spring bar (pin) end is and using lever action push spring bar end inwards. This should release the band from the watch. If all this does not work, then your watch band is attached with friction fitted pins and you will need watchmakers help, as without special pin removing tool it is not possible to remove friction fitted pins.

Rate me, plz.

I'm looking for a watch strap for a ladie's Timex expedition Adventure Tech watch. Where do I find one??


Timex stores are the only place I have been able to find their straps consistently. If you have a standard lug set up you might be able to get a similar after market strap at your local repair shop.

More current models do not have holes that go all the way through on the buckle but the spring bar still sits in between. With a small screw driver press in tward the middle of the strap ware the spring bar sits at the end of the leather strap. Pop out the strap and the spring bar and then place it into the slot that fits.

Replacement band for nike watch wa0018 oregon alt


I wear the smaller, womens' version of the Nike Oregon. Nice watch. I was attracted to it by the replaceable battery feature, but found out the strap goes long before the battery and the joy of ownership goes out the window with the price of Nike wrist-band replacement. I held onto my broken banded watch for awhile, and came up with a solution. First, don't try removing the screws that secure the watch-band pins. Not sure how they work, but I tried several times without luck. Even had a jeweler look at it without success.

I went to Kohl's and purchased a black velcro Timex replacement band for $8. Again this is the for the smaller version of the Oregon. The width of the timex band in 3/4". It includes a elastic band to secure the watch. This elastic band runs under the back of the watch and over the two pins. It is secured to a faux leather tab (with emblems), which is in turn attached to the velco band. Using a razor knife, I detached the faux leather pad from the velcro band and ran it under the watch pins, then reattached it with a touch of Gorilla glue. Be careful to wipe off any excess as Gorilla glue expands as it dries. Finally I blacked out the Timex advertising with a black felt permanent marker.

No reason to think this wouldn't work on the larger, mens' version of the same watch.
