New case is not going to happen. New band can be purchase anywhere practically unless your band is specific to the watch. Then you will have to go to the manufacture and most likely it will cost as much as you paid for the watch. There is a lot of supposition in my answer as you haven't disclosed what watch you actually have.

Need to take band off and replace with a new one


If memory serves me right. There are screws on either side of the band by the case. Use two small eyeglass screw drivers and turn clock and counter clockwise one screw driver on each side of the band. Yeah i know its difficult but the screws only loosen that way. Then pull the tube out and do the same for the other side.

I want to change the watch strap, mine is brokem


Probably don't need special order band. Most people buy band that is same width. Bands have a collapsible post on each side where they attach to the watch, you just pick a band that fits the width. To change a watch band you have to use something like a razor blade (single edge common to cleaning) to wedge between the metal frame of the watch and the band, then try to get some friction on the post and push it away from the watch and toward the middle of band such that you collapse the post and get it out of one hole that the post is in (2 holes 1 on each side of post) so you can tilt the post out. A new band usually has 2 posts included since it is common to bend the old posts getting them out and hard to just buy those. Put the post in the band, put one end of post into a hole, then tilt and compress with the razor to push post into position, then slide the razor out which allows it to go in the second hole. Now band stays attached.

Can anyone help me. I have a new band, but need to get the pins loose. Can anyone tell me how I can change the band (so how to get the pins loose?)


Most likely this model disassembles one of two ways.

Let me preface this response with saying that it is best to have a professional Certified Master Horologist do this repair, as it can be difficult to keep parts intact in the process.

If you see slits in the end of the pins that hold the band on, you need to use sharp, proper size watchmaking screwdrivers on each side. It can be difficult to do this alone, without a device to hold the pin in place while in the process.

The second method is: if there is no **** for a screwdriver (it is smooth like a button), it is a pressure pin configuration. It is one complete piece on one side going all the way through the band, and the other side is held in place by a small rivet that is the same style and appearance that goes into the other side. This can be removed by holding one side in a vise device, and pulling the other with special needle nose pliers, or placing those pliers on the inside of the "button" rivet, and tapping the pliers with a mallet.

You would then replace the band and:

A) Use two screwdrivers to thread the screw back in to one side

OR

B) Tap the button rivet back in to place with a mallet and anvil.

I hope this helps you!

2.      (To attach new band) Take the straps that you want to put on and squeeze the easy release spring bar with your (nail or screwdriver) and insert into little groove, it should snap right into place
3.      Do the same for other band

Skagen watch band issue


You can find generic bands on Ebay or do a Google search for mesh bands. They come in various widths usually in millimeters so you have to measure the width between the lugs where the band connects to the case of the watch. Do a Google search for nomenclature of what a lug is on a watch if you do not know what I mean.

How do you replace the watch band on a casio g-shock


The following proccedure mentioned can be implied for replacing only resin(plastic) strap.

If you have a spare Band, you can replace it with the help of one small four mouth screw driver and one small 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which you can get from any electronics/ computer hardware shop.

Band = Strap

You just need to remove the strap with the help of 1, 2 or 3 no. screw driver which ever you find convinent by removing the Spring Bars. After removing the strap put out spring bars from both sides as these may be used for again fixing the band.

If you find difficulty in removing the Band, you just need to unscrew the screws on for side of the watch case and remove the ring and after fixing the strap you can fix the ring again.

The new band can be fixed in the same way as it has been removed. You need to put the spring bar in the hollow space of strap and keeping the buckle side part of starp above the watch i.e 12 position over the space where it has to be fixed, then put one end of the Spring bar on one hole in the watch case and press the spring bar to get inside from other side (hole in the watch case). In the same way you can replace ******** other side.

In case of any difficulty take your watch to nearest Casio Service Centre for assistance or solution of problem.
