20 Most Recent Casio G-Shock G7000D-8V Wrist Watch Questions & Answers

On my new ProTrek PRW-3000T, there are the small collars which douglasjryan describes. Looking closely at them, I believe that they are not directional (you can re-insert them either way, which is convenient, because they do tend to come flying out at unexpected moments after you've removed a pin). Neither are the pins directional, as far as I can tell. (I think it is this clever and easy to use, and probably more durable, collar design, which eliminates the need for the split-end fragile pins of the past).

I was able to do everything with only hand strength, a very small jewellers' screwdriver to act as the pin pusher, the requisite needlenose pliers to pull the pins out once the pin pusher has extended the pin end by 2-3mm from the bracelet link, and an old toothbrush (great idea, Arturs Kalnins, thanks!) handle to push the pins back in.

To amplify Arturs Kalnins' admonition - the pins go back in following the same direction they came out. That is to say, you push from the edge of the bracelet link which has the arrow etched in it to get the pin out, and you put the pin back in starting from that same edge of the bracelet link which has the arrow etched in it.

A note about pushing the pins back in. Although they seem to be stronger than the pins of the past, you still would not want to apply a sideways force to them. So, start inserting the pin back in with fingers, or using the needlenose pliers gently, to get the end of the pin inserted through the first edge of the bracelet link and into the collar, then continue gently pushing, being quite careful to push only straight (this is particularly important if using a toothbrush handle) until the pin is pushed through the collar and into the centre section of the bracelet link. Before trying to force the pin the last few millimetres, make sure that the bracelet links are lined up - if you are using only hand strength as I did, instead of a bracelet holder, it is easy for the pin to be inserted through one edge, through the collar, through the centre of the link, and to have the band slightly twisted so that the other edge of the link is not lined up with the pin hole. Once the links are aligned, continue pushing with the toothbrush handle to sink the pin the rest of the way.

I found that the end of the toothbrush (at least, the old one that I used, which has a rounded end) makes a convenient pusher for the last fraction of a millimetre to get the pin end flush with the bracelet link edge.

Thanks everyone, you made the process of sizing my watch band (I had to remove four links) quick and easy!

I purchased a Casio Pathfinder solar/atomic watch, with compass, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, model 1200T-7WC (titanium).
Has the titanium band - on this particular band each link is somewhat waveshaped {i.e., there are 2 "arms" from the link making contact with the middle part of the link above (above meaning towards the watch body), and 1 arm fitting between the 2 arms of the next link down). Unlike described in the first solution, the pin is not split, but solid (doesn't look like a slotted screw on 1 end, so the solution at http://www.wikihow.com/Adjust-a-Casio-S-935L-Watch-Band is no help). Here's what to do if you have this band:

1. Note: before you start, be advised there is a tiny loose 1/8" part (sleeve) that will fall out as you pull the links apart, so work over an appropriate surface to "catch" it. Push pin (from the upper "arrow end) of one of the removeable links (those with the arrows on the backside) out of its hole with a fine poker (I used a 1/32" jeweler's screwdriver, an unbent paperclip would also work, just more likely to bend as you push pin out). This takes some force to do - in my case, after pushing, the pin projected out about 1/2 of it's length, I used needle-nosed pliers to gently pull it out the rest of the way). CAREFUL - once pin is removed and you pull the link away from the one above, a small (1/8") constriction sleeve should fall out of the center arm of the link above. SAVE THIS SLEEVE!

2. Using the same procedure, remove the pin from the bottom end of the link you're removing. again, SAVE THE SLEEVE.

3. to rejoin the band once the link is removed, look at the single/middle "arm" of the upper link, looking for the hole where the pin goes through. One side of the hole should be noticeably larger/wider than the other side - this is where you will place the SLEEVE - I used tweezers, or needle-nosed pliers will work - it will drop into hole. Keep this upright so that sleeve doesn't fall out, and slide the 2 arms of the lower link in place around the center arm.

4. Slide the pin you removed into one of the outer link arm holes - I found it easier if I started from below, pushing it into the center arm - it will stop when it reaches that 1/8" constriction sleeve. I set the extruded end on the pin on a magazine (i.e., slightly padded surface) and then pushed the top side of the band down, forcing the pin through the constriction sleeve and up into the upper arm hole, and Voila, your band is reconnected. The sleeve is important (without the sleeve in place, the pin will simply fall back out).

In addition to the Pin there is also a small inner "locking" collar about 2mm long that fits into the center section of each link.

I did not notice this collar at first and it fell to the ground when I removed the first link. Without this piece the Pin's will just slide through the links with no locking mechanism.

It fits neatly into the inner portion of the link directly opposite the arrow that shows the direction of removal on the band.
