How to Customize, Clean, and Swap BARTON Watch Bands for the Perfect Fit & Style

How to Customize, Clean, and Swap BARTON Watch Bands for the Perfect Fit & Style

How to adjust the band size for a perfect fit?

Getting the right fit for your BARTON watch band is important for comfort and style. Here are some tips for getting the perfect adjustable fit:

Check your wrist size

  • Use a measuring tape to measure the circumference of your wrist where you wear your watch.
  • Refer to the BARTON size chart to find the best starting point for your wrist size.

Set the band to the right notch

BARTON bands have notches along the underside to control size.

  • Start with the band a little larger than your wrist measurement.
  • Slide the loose end of the band through the buckle and try it on.
  • Adjust the notch if too loose or tight for comfort.

Get the right tightness

The band should fit snug but not pinch your wrist.

  • Make sure you can insert your pinky finger between wrist and band.
  • The band shouldn't slide around on your wrist.

With some trial and error, you can get the perfect customized fit. Adjust during the day if needed as your wrist size may fluctuate.

How to swap out the bands for different looks?

One of the great things about BARTON's quick release bands is how easy they make it to change up your watch's style.

Remove the existing band

  • Turn the watch over and locate the release buttons on the spring bars.
  • Use a small tool like a spring bar tool to depress the buttons.
  • Slide the end of the band out of the spring bar.
  • Repeat on the other side to fully detach.

Attach the new band

  • Slide one end of the new band into one spring bar until it clicks into place.
  • Line up the other end with the open spring bar.
  • Press down on the end of the band so it slides into the spring bar and locks.

Mix and match for endless stylish combinations! Be sure to check the band width works with your watch's lug size for the proper fit.

How to clean nylon watch bands?

Nylon watch bands are durable and low maintenance. However, dirt, grime, and smells can build up over time. Here's how to clean them:

Remove the Band

  • Detach both ends of the band from the watch's spring bars.
  • Set the watch aside in a safe place.

Wash with Soap and Water

  • Mix a small amount of mild soap with warm water.
  • Dip a clean cloth into the mixture.
  • Gently scrub both sides of the band to lift dirt.
  • Rinse clean with a damp cloth.

Sanitize with Vinegar

  • Fill a bowl with 1 cup warm water and 1⁄2 cup white vinegar.
  • Soak the band for 15-20 minutes.
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
  • Pat dry with a lint-free cloth.

Air Dry Completely

Lay the band flat or hang to air dry fully before reattaching to your watch. Avoid using heat or placing in direct sunlight.

Simple cleaning as needed keeps nylon bands fresh! Avoid submerging in water or using harsh chemicals that could damage the band.

How to remove and install the spring bars?

The spring bars connect the watch band ends to the watch lugs and allow you to easily swap BARTON bands. Here's how to remove and reconnect them:

Remove Spring Bars

You'll need a spring bar tool or very small screwdriver.

  • Insert the tool into the hole at the end of the band's lug space.
  • Gently press down to depress the spring bar's tip.
  • Slide the band end off while maintaining pressure.
  • Repeat on the other side to fully disconnect.

Install Spring Bars

  • Compress one end of the spring bar with your tool.
  • Slide the compressed end into its lug hole.
  • Line up the open end with the empty lug hole.
  • Press the band's end piece so the lug compresses the spring bar into place.

When installed correctly:

  • The band should not detach easily if pulled.
  • The spring bar tips should be fully set in the lug holes.
  • The band should pivot smoothly where connected.

Take care not to bend or damage the spring bars. With patience, you can swap bands without tools. Replacement spring bars are available if needed.

How to pair these bands with different watch styles?

  • Black for a sleek, serious look
