I have rarely an issue with pins popping off the band or watch, but I picked up a crown and buckle "peron" braided strap. since I've used it the last couple of months, I have had a pin come loose 4 times. at first I thought it was a bent pin so I replaced them both, but it happened twice...
The links in my watch bracelet uses screws, and they would get loose a little daily, if I don't tighten them some will get off the bracelet completely. It usually takes 3 to 4 days and a screw will be completely loosen. Anyone has similar problem, and how to prevent it? Thanks.
The "bracelet link pins vs bracelet link screws" question has had rather healthy debate here at WUS. Many prefer screws, while many prefer pins. Though there does seem to be one consensus that emerged - absolutely every one loves the IWC ingenieur pin system which uses a button on the...

This watch checks a lot of boxes for me, but it has a weird "screwed in" strap system. My question: is it possible to use normal NATO and leather straps on this watch? Or are you stuck with what it comes with?

Got my new Seiko SKA371P1 divers watch yesterday. Not had a chance to wear it yet. I need to modify the bracelet. I have done this loads of times before on other watches but this is the first time I have come across the pin/collar system.
After struggling for ages and not understanding why...
Got a worming or all Ambit Sapphire users.
The pin on the strap op the Sapphire is to short!
I lost my Sapphire 2 times in the forest and send already a mail to Suunto. Had 2 times luck to find my watch.
There is the possibility that the pin can flip over.
Take care not to lose the Sapphire.
Hi, all. I'm new on the forums, here, and I didn't see any other areas that seemed specific to this line of discussion, so I'm posting my question here. If the thread needs to be moved, I apologize in advance.
I recently purchased a Casio EDIFICE EQW-A1200DB-1A and I absolutely love it. I...
Hello my fellow WIS. This is going to be bit of a long one, so please bear with me.
The watch in question was purchased brand new approximately 5 months ago, and certainly a genuine SEIKO.
Like many watches without micro adjustment, getting the bracelet to fit smaller wrists can be a real...
Hi there, I just bought a new croc strap for my 3717-04. Anyone know spec of pins to buy. I want to use new pins when I change out straps to ensure a safe/secure fit
A friend recommended Esslinger but there are so many options and variations on a 21mm pin I'm not sure what to get.
I'm considering purchasing a watch with a pin and collar bracelet (Seiko Monster). I was wondering if anyone here has successfully used the SE Watchband Link Remover tool from amazon to adjust the band. There are several listings but here's an example of it:

I'm considering purchasing a Seiko Black Monster, but have heard that the stainless steel band on it is pretty difficult to adjust, even many jewelers will mess it up. Is there a place where I can take it knowing they'll do a good job, I do not mind paying as long as they know what they're...
Glad I didn't DIY on the link removal on my newly acquired Seiko Spirit SCVS003.
The Japanese took great care to include a "retainer" on one end the pin so be careful not to drop it should you venture into that. That's the smallest component in this picture:
Hope it helps to pre-warn fellow...
