How to remove and replace the watch band

remove the watch band

   VANGOSEDUN leather watch bands are carefully made using various techniques and methods (cut band, remborded, Full-Bugg etc.). If you need to change your watch bands for any reason, we’ve got some instructions shown below to help you remove your old watch band and fit your new one, preferably bought from VANGOSEDUN leather watch bands store.

   For Watch bands with Spring Bars: Nowadays watch bands are often attached to wrist watches with spring bars/spring pins. Spring bars/pins are small metal bars with ends that are sprung.

   The first job to do is to take the spring-bar tool, and using the forked end, find the end of the spring bar between the band and the lug (horn) of the watch. You should now be able to push the end of the bar inwards to remove it from the hole in the lug end. You should now be able to pull the band away form the watch. Repeat this process for both sides of the watch band.

   If your spring bars are still in good condition they can be reused for your new watch band. If you would prefer new ones, they can be found in our shop in the ‚Spring- and T-Bars‚ category under “ACCESSORIES” in our shop.

   Next, thread the spring bars through the ends of your new watch band. Ensuring the watch band is the correct way around, and that the piece with the buckle is attached to the 12 o’clock‘ position, slot one end of the spring bar into the small holes on the inside of the lug. Using the forked end of the watch band, press the other end of the spring bar inwards, before releasing it into the small hole on the other lug. To finish, you should check that the spring bars are properly in the holes and that the band is securely fastened to the watch so that it won’t fall of unexpectedly.

   For Watch bands with Screwed Attachments: Some watch bands are attached to watches with screws. For the most part this is with visible screws on the sides of the watch lugs. For these types of attachments, simple unscrew the screw with a small screwdriver, remove the watch band, thread the screw through your new band and secure the screw back in place.

   For Watch bands with Fixed Bars: Older wrist watches often have fixed bars that don’t come away from the watch as spring bars do. For these watches we have special watch bands with either clip-, stick-, or split pin bands ends to go around the fixed bar. They can be found in out shop in the ‚Open End Watch Bands‚ category under “SPECIAL BANDS”.

   A watch strap or watch band is no longer simply a throw-away product that just serves the purpose of keeping a watch on your wrist, it a so much more than that. It affects the whole look and feel of your watch and personal style. In the same way that a watch isn’t just a means of telling the time, but a fashion accessory, the watch band has developed too.
