Experience Watchmaking & Jewelry Repair

There are many ways you can change an element on a watch to make it your own and the Make My Own Watch Kit is no different. Make this watch unique to you by swapping out the band for a stainless steel band or colored leather band with a deployment clasp. Try changing the hands or crown for a more sporty look and even add a date magnifier to the crystal – the options are seemingly endless. Esslinger.com has put together a few watches to show just how much these simple upgrades can dramatically change the look of the watch and make it more your style.

***Please note, the metal watch bands are the right width for the lugs but don’t quite fit without some adjusting. To get the bands to fit you will need to use a plier to bend the tabs out on the bottom of the curved band ends to fit. One the band is on the watch, you can either bend the tabs back down or cut them off and file down for a comfortable fit.
