    Yes, I'm sure they would. The cost is over $100. Hardly seems like a sensible solution for "stainless steel" link pins corroding through, rendering two links unuseable. Citizen has the worst customer service of any company I have come across, and I'm more than happy to relay that opinion to anyone looking for a watch - especially those in the aviaition community. What a heap of junk.

    Thanks for the feed back and thanks for using

Citizen will gladly sell you a new band that will match your Skyhawk. Find full particulars here:

    Yep, I have tried for two years to secure two links. Finally I'm back in Europe and sent the watch back to Citizen UK and rather than swap out two links, they have proposed a whole new band. It's the end of the line for this watch. Six months of use, followed by years trying to get it fixed and only to find it'll cost 50% of the cost of the watch to get it sorted. Life is too short for that sort of rubbish service and product.

    Casio make a few nice watches for pilots, so I'll not bother getting a replacement band from Citizen and buy another brand of watch.

    Sorry I couldnt help ... glad you are solving your trouble. Casio is a good name. Good luck with your new watch.

I have bought citizen watch JR3080-51L , and I need some more links because I got a watch that is good for 7" wrist and I need 8.5" wrist. Thanks

I've had to get extra links before, especially for ladies SS and gold bands. Sometimes a local dealer will have spares that will fit your watch. But, the best source I've found is Ebay. Let me know if you have the stock band or something else. I'll try to help you locate some extra links, or another replacement band at a modest cost. Thanks, Bill

Do not know how to set date and day

Hi, Since Citizen does not list this caliber number on their site, try another caliber number close to your model, with the same features. I've been successful with this procedure more often than not. Most setting instructions are near the front of the manual, between pages 3-9. If you don't have the manual, Try this link:

Take the four-digit Calibre number from the back of the watch, enter it, and download a PDF of your watch setting-instructions/manual.
I hope this helps you. Thanks, Bill

Anyone know how to set time on a NY-1385 watch?

First, go to the time mode which displays week day, seconds and timeas opposed to calendar, seconds and time. To do so, touch and hold upper left sensor until the watch beeps. Then use the upper right button to switch to the proper time mode. Then touch and hold lower right sensor. This will send the watch into settings mode.
