With some practice you can get them out without damaging them.

With one finger press the pin upwards and use a small screw driver and
gently press the pin toward the center.

Relax the finger pressure while pushing with the screwdriver and then
return the pressure as you stop pushing with the screwdriver.

Some skill is required but you should be able to remove the pins after a few

Putting the pins back in by reversing the process (i.e. put one end in
and press the pin gently onto the watch; push the spring loaded pin in
while pressing it against the case and when the pin is far enough in,
it will slide down the inner face into the hole.

Its easy! (after some practice!).

How do I take the leather strap off my bensherman wristwatch?

Depending on the model, if it is one that has a leather strap, then they are held in place with spring-bars that go through the ends of the band protruding out of each end. the points then insert into holes in the bezel lugs and thus hold the band in place.
The best method is using a tool made for this which you can pickup at any Harbor Fright Tools store if there is one in your area. Alternatively, use a small screwdriver and insert it against the inside of the lug where the band rides against. As you begin to pry downward away from the lug, you will see the spring-bar. Look for any ridges on the bar that can be used to pry further... it's really trial and error and use caution to not damage your band. another way that works quite well is a not-too-sharp knife. Again insert it between the band edge and the inside of the case lug and with pressure against the pin, pry downward away from the lug... the ping should disengage

Invicta watch instructions

Straps are usually held in place by two spring loaded metal pins between the two lugs on either side of the strap. Look at the ends near the lugs you should be able to see them, use a very small flate blade srewdriver to pull back on the pin and once you get it, it will pop out of the hole its in.

I have a fake chanel watch but can,t undo it to take it off..

You will probably need an assistant to remove your watch.

If you still can't get the watch off, let your assistant use a small screwdriver to remove the spring loaded pin that holds the strap to the lug of your watch.

( This can be done by putting a small tension on the strap pressing the screwdriver against the pin and pushing it in the desired direction. Some practice may be required!

Get pen knife and insert the blade between the watch strap and watch lug from the bottom side. Pry the springbar inwards using lever action. This must release the springbar.

Rate me, please.

Kenneth Cole Watch 3574 pin in length has broken

are you talking about the band pins or the lug pins? most watch repair stations will have lugs and pins, and will replace for about $5...any more and you will be getting ripped off. Lug pins are a pain and unless you have the proper lug tools, you can end up scratching the finish of the careful!

Leather watch bands are broken

The "gizmo" would be the pin that attaches the watch to the case. You can easily purchase a replacement pin or strap at any store that has watches (even Wal-Mart). These are very inexpensive and each one will cost you less than $10.

Change ******** Anne Klein watch

Your watch comes with interchangeable bezels, not faces. Bezel is a ring or rectangle (depends what shape your watch has) surrounding a glass.
All bezels are mostly friction fitted,so, to remove your bezel you need to use a strong knife blade and press it between the bezel and the case. The bezel should lift up.
To get the bezel back you have to press it into place.
For changing the strap you have to turn watch upside down and using the knife or lug tool try to squeeze sprigbar end out of the watch lug. Sprinbar is the piece which holds a strap attached to watch. The end of springbar you will find exactly where the strap is attached to watch. Push it inwards and it must come out. The rest is like 2x2.
Good luck.

Can't set the time or adjust the ******** crystal Starck PH-1100

Take a VERY close look at yor watch and you should notice a few tiny buttons. One of them should correspond to MODE, another to SET and so on- depends on how many your watch has.
Use a pin or a needle to push them and find out the settings procedure.
If you cant find buttons on the case sides, examine case back. They can be hidden between the lugs, so, the strap should be taken off.
Remember- there are no watches in existance without adjustment features. Even atomic clock needs to be adjusted after a few million years of work:))

Good luck.
