Once the buckle has been opened, grab the buckle end of the nylon band and pull it out of the watch case. You may need to hold on to the watch case when you do this is the band is a tight fit.

Set the watch case and old band aside so that you remember which end of the band belongs where on the case so that the clasp will close the way you want it when you replace the band.

When the band has been removed, you will want to measure the watch band to find the right size replacement band. Then, with the size of the band, you can check out our wide selection of watch bands to find the perfect replacement nylon band.
