If you are talkin about the end piece that attaches to the case...and its too wide then it must be cut down to fit! Any reputable watch repair shop should be able to do that for you! You could try it yourself but its very easy to scratch the case and/or band!

Broken band, how can I get new rubber band? where??


Hi there,
It looks like that may be a custom band, this site has some great bands, http://www.watch-band-center.com/shop-watchstrap.html?gclid=CjgKEAjwoJ-dBRDbjfKN7IzN0FsSJAAP0G_DR8AwTfhcxt7HHIHONLoaf1QZfq7YeqCB6Vt1_oZKV_D_BwE

you'll need to measure how wide your band is where it connects to the watch to ensure you get the correct fit.

Where can i get a resin watch strap for a Casio Wv-200U-1AVEF


Most department and discount stores that sell Casio watches will carry a general assortment of replacement bands for those watches. However, your model takes a somewhat specialized band that may not be stocked by these stores. Instead, if you're looking for a local source for a replacement band, you might need to visit a "quick watch repair" kiosk or store in your local shopping mall or visit a jeweler who sells Casio watches. Often, both of these types of businesses keep a more comprehensive selection of authentic Casio bands in stock.

Replacement bands are also available online. For example, just because it was near the top of the Google search results I received, this web site has a wide variety of Casio bands, along with suggestions of the watch models to which they go. I have not ordered from this web site, and I have no affiliation with them (I actually think some of their prices are on the high side), but it's one of many online sources for the watch band you need:

Good luck finding the band you need at a decent price!

Trying to change leather watch band. This watch has a narrow space to attach rather than a wide space. Have tried to push pins and they will not move.


The easiest way to insert and remove watch band pins is with a band tool. This small tool has a very small, thin fork on one side, usually made of tempered or hardened steel, that you use to spear one end of the watch pin; you can then quickly and easily apply the leverage needed to pull one end out of its mounting hole. Many watch pins have a small collar at each end designed to catch this forked end. These inexpensive tools are sold at most jewelry supply houses or come as part of a "watch maintenance kit" that can be purchased online or at Harbor Freight. However, you can also solve your problem without this tool.

There are two approaches to removing stubborn band pins without the right wrench. First, you can use a sharp knife blade (a screwdriver blade won't work) to try to grab the end of one of the pin to try to pull it out of its mounting hole. Band pins without collars are usually designed to pull a bit more easily from one side than from the other; if you're not having any success on one side of a pin, try the other. In addition, you might want to wear leather gloves--using this procedure, it's almost certain that the knife blade will slip out of control at least once or twice, and there's a serious risk of accidentally cutting yourself unless your hands are protected. Further, you may gouge a notch in your knife blade, damaging its smooth edge. Still, if you need to preserve the band pins, this is a common way to go. Finally, if you put too much pressure on the mounting hole in a plastic watch case, you run the risk of tearing out the hole. In that case, the watch is now useless as a wristwatch, because you can't attach a new band to it.

On the other hand, if your replacement watch band comes with replacement pins, you don't need the watch pins that are currently mounted in your watch. If that's the case, use a pair of nipper pliers to cut the pin in half. You can either push the old band out of the way, or you can even cut it off to get better access to the pins. If you cut the pin approximately in the center, it should be easy to pull each half out. Conversely, if you cut the pin very close to one edge, you may have a bit of a challenge pulling the short end out--but it's still quite do-able.

I always change out the band pins when I change a wristwatch band, so I have become increasingly fond of cutting the old pins in half and pulling them out if I can't easily get them out with a band tool. Doing so minimizes the risk that I will damage the pin mounting holes in the case. Even in a metal case, elongated mounting holes will not hold a pin as securely, making it easier for the band to spring out and the watch to fall and get damaged.

Replacing watch band on pathfinder pas410. can't get pins out to replace band.


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.

Rate me, plz.

Band replacement


Skagen watches have a fairly unique band. If you have a leather band you can find a replacement from most after market band suppliers like Speidel. For the mesh steel the only after market I know of is from Bariloche. Bariloche. I am still not aware of any titanium mesh suppliers but you can always contact Skagen for replacement bands. They are very good at keeping replacement parts for their watches for several years.

http://www.skagen.com/service/orderWatchBandParts.fx

Once you have the band you will need to use a small screw driver to depress and release the spring bar that secures the band to the watch. Place a screw driver in between the ridge of the spring bar and the lug of the watch case and gently move inwards. Remember that the end of the spring bar is spring loaded so it may fly out if you move the end away from the watch.

Thanks!

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.

How to adjust watch band on relic steel watch


OK basically there must be an element that you can push out in the direction of the arrow. Either there is a very thin pin (like a needle) that you can push out with a blunt sewing needle (break the tip), or there is a more sophisticated system as it is shown under the following link:
