I have a Michele Urban leather wristwatch model 71-280/380. I purchased it used. There was not battery inside. Does anyone know what size battery it takes so I can try to make it work?

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

How to adjust leather rolex watch band

On the clasp of the watch. There are small holes ware the spring bar sits.
More current models do not have holes that go all the way through on the buckle but the spring bar still sits in between. With a small screw driver press in tward the middle of the strap ware the spring bar sits at the end of the leather strap. Pop out the strap and the spring bar and then place it into the slot that fits.
