How To Adjust A Tag Watch Band
How do you adjust a Tag watch band? There are various types of bands Tag uses on their watches. There are leather straps, which for the most part are fairly self explanatory on their adjustment, and there are metal bracelets, which are what metal watch bands are called. For our purposes today, we shall discuss adjusting a metal bracelet on your Tag Heuer watch.
Tools needed to adjust the band on a Tag Heuer watch:
- Spring bar tool
The process to adjust the band on your Tag Heuer watch will go as follows:
- Inspect bracelet. Look at the clasp on the bracelet. You can make adjustments there without having to remove the links. If there are adjustment holes on the sides of the clasp, you can move on to the next step. If not, you will have to remove the links if you have the tools and know how, or take the watch into a watch maker to have the links removed.
- Use the spring bar tool to move the first side of the clasp. Using the small pointed end of the spring bar tool push the end of the spring bar into the hole. A spring bar is a spring loaded pin which is used to hold watch bands to the watch as well as clasps together. This allows for adjustments to be made to them. Once the pin is compressed on one end, slowly move the bracelet to the next hole in the clasp. Moving the pin only one hole at a time prevents binding. Make sure you do not accidentally let the spring bar slip out from under the clasp. They can fly off into space and get lost. We have found them to be practically impossible to find in carpeting.
- Move the second side of the spring bar. Turn the watch over and use the spring bar tool to compress the other end of the spring bar. Slowly move it until it clicks into the same hole on the second side of the clasp.
- Check for fit. Put on the watch and check for fit. If it still does not fit, repeat the process. If it fits now, you are finished.
Congratulations, you have successfully adjusted the bracelet of your Tag Heuer watch. Wear it in good health.
