I am going to assume you are talking about a leather band. You may need to bend the springbars( the pins that attach your band to the watch). You can do this with two teaspoons. Put the spring bar between the nested spoons and gently squeeze them together. This will facilitate attaching the band.

How do I take out links in a seiko SUR072 watch band.


Without seeing the band design, Seiko has a couple of executions that they use. One is a pin which is flared on one end. There is usually a directional arrow showing you which way the pin gets driven out. You will need a small hard pin. It should tap out, after the flared end is exposed you can pull it out with a small pair of plyers or side-cuts. Push out the next pin in the next link then put the pin back in the way it came out. The flared end is the last piece that goes into the band. If this doesn't work try a store where they at least install batteries. Good Luck hope this helps. Gabe

A pin popped out of my band and was lost. In addition, the curved piece that blends the band to the bezel of the watch was lost and not to be found. I can't locate a replacement band or replacement part...


Replacing the spring pin is not a problem, however for the band to look as it did originally, the end piece, or end tab - which is now missing, must be replaced. These parts are generally proprietary. You can order one from your local Certified Master Horologist.

You may also consider contacting Luminox. Sometimes, the manufacturers run out of these parts and the whole band must be ordered because that is all that is available.

Contact Luminox Repair Center at 401?946?0920.

How do you put the back, back onto this fs1? The band keeps getting in the way! Back came off easily enough, popped off after unscrewed. Band is still on watch, have tried to slide back into grooves but...


You have to remove band in order to fit caseback back onto the watch. Insert pocket knife blade between band and case lug and pry inwards. This motion should release the band. It will be a lot more difficult to fit the band back on and you will probably need to buy springbar tool. Rate me plz.

Band too long. Since adjustable, it fits okay, but the end of the band sticks out and is uncomfortable. The local jeweler says you can't shorten a mesh band.


Since I can't see you band it is difficult to be absolutely sure what can be done but I suspect what your jeweler says in partly correct, as they are not made to be shortened.

I would expect to see a metal cover over the loose end. If this is so, then if this cover can be prized off without damaging it, then the excess band could be removed using side cutters and the end cover replaced. (this sort of thing is outside the normal watch fitters range of work).

There is always the risk of an untidy result though and this should be carefully considered before letting anyone loose on you watch.

If there is no end cover, then just chopping off the excess might be worse than the original problem.

Do you know any handyman with a range of engineering tools in his garage!

Can't find the watch band for fossil arkitekt fs 4127?? it have a curve and use two pins


I have the same watch Fossil FS-4127 and I too can't find a replacement band. Appears to be planned obsolesence by Fossil. This FixYa site is almost as bad as Fossil, which is all advertisements and no answers whatsoever.

Adjust ladies citizen watch metal link band


If it is a metal link band, you can remove a few segments. Segments are connected by split pens. You should see a thinner end and a bigger end; or an arrow on the inside shows where the thinner end should be. Push the thinner end firmly with a pin or something until the big end pops out the opposite side.Use pliers to remove the pin.

You do noy need an exact Anne Klein band as all watch bands are made to specific measurements.
You have to measure the width of the band (the end attached to the watch) and buy any type of band you like, just make sure it is exactly the same width as the previous band. In case if you have the Anne Klein clasp or buckle, you have to measure the other end of the band as well and by any band you like, but in this case you need to match both ends of the band. Clasp or buckle are easily refitted to the new band and nobody knows that this is not an original one.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Stainless steel band won't snap into my watch


Stainless steel bracelet ends (so called wings) must be curved flush to the watch case.
Another way is to use curved spring lugs (pins).

Lucien piccard watch


The arrows you are seeing are for sizing the band. I cannot find 26311SS in my data base, but I have a good idea what you need to do. The curved piece is a safty that goes over the clasp. Take something like a round toothpick and with the curved piece going to the right like this: ( put the toothpick under the far lefthand side, in the middle and see if you can pry it up ,( I say use a tooth pick so not to scratch up your watch) it should flip over to the right.Check and see if there are any spring loaded buttons on either side of the clasp, if there is push them in ,and lift to your left If there is no buttons just pry up towards your left. If this dosn't work PLEASE let me know, and I will find the exact watch and we can go from there. Good luck!!
