    Re: The Kirium Club

    Lots of talk here about replacement bands. I'd love to try the genuine rubber on some of my Kiriums. Anyone know how to change the bracelet/strap? Seems like you'd need to punch the pins out - is that the case? Don't want to try that and wind up damaging something, but don't want to keep taking to my watch guy every time I want to swap looks.

    It can be done with a simple bracelet removal tool with no harm or cost..

    Re: The Kirium Club

    Hmmm, can you explain a bit further. I don't seem to be able to push those pins in from outside the drilled holes in the lugs, and can't figure a way to insert the tool on the inside of lugs. Probably something very simple and I'm over thinking it!

    Hi. I like the look of these Kirium F1 and am negotiating to buy a CL111A.BA0700 online. Only doubt is about the digital display. When the display is off, is it completely invisible? Or do you see little outlines of the inactive numbers? Grateful for any advice.

    Re: The Kirium Club

    absolutely invisible.

    watchout that the Kirium F1 comes originally with anti-glare coating OUTSIDE of the crystal glass. That means: the glass is scratch-proof, but the coat is NOT. Many pre-owned Kirium F1s have scratched coating on the display, which is EASY to happen and does not look to good scratched. Some owners remove the coating for that reason. Just so you know... GREAT watch!

    Re: The Kirium Club

    Changing/shortening the bracelet Is the sane thing. Here's pixs to explain:


    Get yourself a watch set that include a plastic base that can hold the bracelet, a small hammer and a small pin-like tool that has a long pin at one end and also fits into hole.



    Tap the pin with the hammer. If you do it right, you will feel the lug slipping out from the other end. Then simply use your hands or a small plier to pull the lug out. Thats it!

    Re: The Kirium Club

    Great post-I've always been able to easily remove Kirium links with a standard threaded pin pusher, unable to do it, however, where the bracelet meets the lugs (to change bracelet for strap) due to eccentric shape of case. Have you been able to use these tools/method at lug ends?
