Hint: The easiest way to find the size bracelet needed for your watch is to check your old band. Many times manufacturers imprint the back of the band with the lug size.
Part 1 Band Width
Watchbands come in different lug sizes. The lug size of the band is the width of the ends where the band attaches to the watch face. Lug sizes are measured in millimeters. You can measure the lug size of your watch face by measuring the distance between the two watch lugs with a caliper. If you are using a ruler, we have provided a conversion chart below. However, the most accurate way to measure millimeters is with a caliper.
Part 2 Band Length
Bands are generally made in short, regular, long, and extra-long lengths.
Average Mens Wrist Size
|Long or XL||Over 8|
Average Ladies Wrist Size
|Long or XL||Over 6 5/8|
The easiest way to determine the length of band needed would be to measure the old watch strap you are replacing.
If you do not have a band to measure, you can use the formula below to determine band length:
Band Length = Wrist Size Watch Face Length

Watch Band Replacement Instructions:
1. Set up your work space. Lay out a soft cloth to prevent the watch face from getting scratched while you attach the band. Also, find a flat metal implement that can be used to remove the spring bars.
2. Use a flat metal implement to remove the spring bar. Slide the implement between the band and the watch face. Use the implement to push down the notch on the spring bar and remove the band from the watch face. Be sure to save the removed spring bar, you will use it to attach your new band.
3. Repeat step 2 to remove the other side of the old band from the watch face.
4. Attach the new watchband. Insert the spring bar into one end of the new watchband. Anchor the band by inserting one end of the spring bar into the watch face. Use your metal implement to push the spring bar down. Slide the band into place and align the spring bar with the holes in the watch face. Remove the metal implement and allow the pin to pop into place and hold the band in place. You can ensure the band is attached by slightly wiggling the band to ensure it doesnt detach.
5. Repeat step 4 to attach the other end of the band to the watch face.
Note: to correctly align your band you will want the buckle end on the 12 oclock side on the watch face. (See picture)
