General Notes Because of the way they are put together, expansion bands (flexible metal watch bands) are unique in that they usually don't require a clasp of any kind and can be removed and put on easily.
ROWI have long been at the forefront of metal expansion watch bands with their Fixoflex-Watch Bands, and stand for innovation in quality from Germany. The watch bands are extremely hard wearing and robust.
Expansion bands can generally be shortened or lengthened. In order to do this then individual links must be removed or added in the amount required.
The method shown below is not suitable for standard metal watch bands.
- Shortening Fixoflex, Fixoflex S, Fixoflex 2000 and similar watch bands
1. Please pull out- with the band extended - a U-shaped hook (U-Bow) from the side of the band, carefully avoiding not to twist it. A special band shortening pair of pliers might be helpful here.
2. Separate the watch band by sliding sideways. It is advantageous to separate the watch band by pushing in such a way that a U-bow remains in the upper part of the watch band‘s link.
3. Put together by completing steps 1 and 2 in reverse order: connect the shortened or lengthened halves of the watch band together by inserting the loose U-bow. Ensure that every U-bow clicks into place.
In order to avoid unnecessary returns of incorrectly ordered products, please check the required measurements before purchase and choose products accordingly. The lug width and the length are especially important and should definitely be checked before you buy a watch strap to ensure the strap will fit your watch and your wrist correctly. Further information on how to ascertain the correct watch strap measurements can be seen here...
You can normally fit the watch straps in our huge range to your wristwatch by yourself. We recommend the use of a spring bar tool (see watch tools). The buckle can also be exchanged if required. Detailed instructions on how to exchange your watch strap and/or buckle can be found here...
