Question about Kenneth Cole Watches
SOURCE: leather watch band
I might have the solution. Is it a rectangular watch with a leather strap? It sounds weird, but I have a watch with no brand name on it (bought yesterday from K-Mart at $9.99) with the model #A126-06. The package insert said "Advance Watch Group." I googled them, and they manufacture watches for Kenneth Cole, Tommy Bahama and a bunch of other designers.
I was really surprised because K-Mart is the last place I'd buy a watch, except that it looked like my broken Raymond Weil tank watch.
I suggest you go to K-Mart and see if you find a watch that looks like yours.
The back of this watch is marked as follows:
Stainless Steel Caseback

SOURCE: alarm and hour beep
On your watch ( in the digital area) there has to be a a bell looking design and or a ))) That show that your hourly chime is on. You have to either push two buttons at the same time OR go to the alarm mode on you watch and push any button besides the mode button, one of the buttons should take that little bell or))) off you screen. If this dosn't work, PLEASE let me know and I will research this a little more.Good Luck!!!

I just dug my watch out after not wearing for a few years and had the same problem. There is an easy way to adust this watch's time and alarm, basically one way to enter both.
1) With the watch in the regular time display mode (doesn't matter if 12 hour or military time), depress and hold the lower left hand button (mode button). After a few seconds the watch appears to shift to alarm mode and it is blinking. This puts you into the mode for adjusting the alarm.
2) If you want to adjust time, date, etc rather than alarm time, after you have done step one, simply press that same lower left button again, and then it will put you into the time mode, but this time the time mode is blinking and you can adjust the various components (seconds, minutes, hours). You can only move minutes, hours, etc forward, no way to move backward. You will start off with the second display blinking, probably skip that unless you need to adjust seconds. Depress the upper right button to shift to the next option (minutes) and you will see the minute display blinking. Adjust the minutes by depressing the lower right button. When finished depress upper right button to move to next option (hours) depress the lower right button to move the minutes/hours/month/date forward as necessary, when you finish just press the lower left button again and it pulls you out of adjust mode and you are back in regular time viewing.
I had to post this because I've had this problem in the past and it killed me. Its kind of intuititve after you get into the adjusting mode by pressing the lower left button- remember, initially it will put you into adjust alarm mode, but press again and you will get into adjust time mode.

First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet,make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Hope it'll help.
