Re: Casio SPF70 Spring Pins
The best way is to take a look on ebay. The only downside is: you have to buy a whole lot (I mean - you can not buy just a two or three springpins). Go to ebay, choose jewellery and watches and then watch parts and tools or accesories. The other way is to try to find on internet jewellery and watch part supplyers in your coutry and contact them. They usually selling springpins in packs of 10. Before you buy any of them, you need to measure the distance between watch case lugs in milimeters. The size between lugs is the exact size for the springpins to order. If you are not happy with that, then you have to try to continue to visit more jewellers till you find the right ones.

mcdevito75 here, I'm surprised a jeweler couldn"t help. Here is Casio"s contact number, speak with them, TIP, get a spring bar 1/2 MM smaller and larger than what you measured. Contact Casio at 800-435-7732 9AM-----5 PM EST. hope this helps.
mcdevito75 here, My best advise is to see how the other 2 springs are situated in the watch, then simply follow suite with the 3rd spring. BE VERY CAREFULL THOUGH AS< ANY OR TOO MUCH RESURE ON THE CASIO DISPLAY WILL RUIN IT. If you can"t find the spot for this spring, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for help, it"s better than ruinning your watch.
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.
There is this little spring which fits in one of the small holes in the watch. When I tested my watch without the spring, there was no beep. With the spring in place the sound worked nice again. So (IMO) apparently the little spring is used as contact between the watch en the "speaker" placed at the back of the watch.
