  1. Watchmaking
    Hello, I have never found removing a case back to be a chore, but today I am left with a bit of annoyance. Each case back grove is less than perfect. There is no place for the tool to grab because each grove has been worn down. Small bit of alcohol has been used, hot/cold. I assume there is...

    Hi All, Just bought my first BFK and I'm about to alter the bracelet size soon. When putting the link pins back in, do you push them back in the same side of the link that they come out of. ie. opposite to the direction of the arrow? Many thanks in advance. Jason

    Hey everyone! I got this Omega Seamaster Deville from 1967. It's a beaut, but there's an engraving on the back that I'm trying to get rid of. Some people say that engravings are cool because its a piece of the history. I personally am not a fan of having a strangers name on my watch. What do...

    Hello I have a quartz swiss made 5 jewel movement watch and it has a screw down crown. I tried googling and watching youtube videos but still confused about how to remove the crown from my watch? I'm guessing I need a pointy needle to push in one of these holes or do I need to pry up that gold...

    Hi all, does anyone know how to remove the G-illuminator button in a DW-6900 please? I have a replacement item to install but can't quite figure out if the thing simply pops out or whether one has to open it up to remove the movement first and do it from the inside? Thanks in advance. EDIT...

    Sinners,I recently purchased my first serious watch. Proudly an 857 UTC with the tegimented bracelet. Very happy with it. To go with it I ordered a couple of straps from Greg Stevens. In the mean time I was going to put a rubber strap on it from another watch.The watch comes with the Sinn...
  8. Tissot
    I want to try a leather band I bought for my Tissot PRC 200 (which is on the original metal bracelet - which is awesome BTW). Is the metal bracelet held on with spring bars? Can I just use a watch tool to press those bars back a bit to get the bracelet loose?

  10. Casio G-Shock
    My G-Shock came with a plastic buckle. I already have a metal replacement, so I do I get the plastic one off? I am sure that is not held together by a spring bar. I've tried using a screwdriver, a dull knife, and a paper clip to remove it. I even cracked my fingernail trying to remove it. Any...
  11. Straps & Bracelets
    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: Amazon.com: SE Watchband Link...

    Hi Gents As you can see I am new to this forum and I come seeking help please! I've got an Original Tissot Touch that was in need of a bit of tlc so I set to work with my scratch pen and scotchbrite ;-) As a result I ended up with grit under the bezel that made the ratchet feel rough, not a...

I want something to make the job easier, especially when there is Loctite applied, and I want to avoid scratching the watch at all costs! Has...

    At first sight, this looks a more complex arrangement than for a G-Shock but it's actually more similar than it looks. 1. The first thing to do is to push in the end of the spring pin and release the small chrome cover that's over it. I did this just using a small nail. 2. Once this is...
