    GW810 - removing back plate?

    Hi,

    I notice on the GW810 series the metal band is attached to the watch by plastic shaped anchors. These cover the screws for the backplate. How do you remove these anchors for the band, so that the screws for the backplate are visible?

    Just curious..

    Curious Ghobbit,

    I have the same model but I'm wearing my solar Gulfman today... so if my memory serves me well the only way to remove those anchors is to remove the screws keeping the braclet in place first... once the braclet is out, anchors go out as well...

    Anyhow, I just checked the back of my gulfman... no such worries here...back of the watch is protected by just 4 screws and that's it...

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers.

    I believe that the bezel parts are more or less the same for all GW-810 series watches so that it should be similar to the ones with resin bands.

    To get access to the backplate screws you will need to remove the resin parts fixed to the case by the four screws at the top and bottom. The two screws on the sides between the buttons are not important here.

    The resin bands are affixed to the watch by a springbar held in place by metal clasps which can be removed by pushing into the small hole on either side. Maybe it's similar with the metal band.

    @ ghobbit,

    you definetely have to remove the bracelet first. you have to use a very thin piece of metal (like a sewing needle for instance) to push the springbars back on the upper link of the bracelet. after that you can remove the two plastic links which cover the screws.

    Many thanks,

    I was wondering how this was done. So, the pins that hold the bracelet also hold the plastic anchors to the watch itself....and once the pins are removed, the anchors are easily lifted off. I'm glad I posted instead of poking and proding at plastic watch pieces with a mini screwdriver!

    Thanks for the pic holger. I'm going to file this thread for my own reference.

    On a related note, if I wanted to use a different metal strap or change it over for a nato band for example, would I need new anchor adapters? i.e. if I wanted to use standard watch straps/bracelet, how would I affix these to the gw810?

    regards,
    Ghobbit

    @ ghobbit,

    I replaced the black ion coated bracelet of my G-800BD-1v with a resin strap. not that I don't like the bracelet - quite contary - I find it wears extremly comfortable, its just that I think a strap fits the G-800BD better.

    anyway, the case of the G-800BD is the same as it is with the GW-810 series (or the GW-800 series fo that matter). so I ordered a strap (from the GW-800-1V to be exact)...




    ....and attached it to the G-800BD. you don't need any new anchor adaptors for it BUT you need longer springbars and the two metal clips which hold the springbars:



    here a wristshot of the G-800BD with resin band:



    hope this helps.



    regards, holger
