    How To change band PRW-3500?

    Hello -

    Anyone here change the band on their PRW-3500? It has the wings on the back that cover the springs and screws on the side that seem to be linked together and in need of two screw drivers to get them out. Before I go ruining this thing if anyone has done this and can help guide my impatient self I would appreciate it.

    Did this, when I owned 3500s, but don't have any now.

    I don't remember all the details, but I do remember it's very easy. Yes I think you do need two screwdrivers. Take out those screws, and I'm pretty sure that inside is one of those hollow tubes that you must then push out. Once that's done, everything should come off - straps and wings.

    Do it! Super easy.

    I think it's like my PAW-2000. There is a screw bar that goes through a metal tube. You have to use screwdrivers on each end to loosen the screw bar. I use a screwdriver block on one end to give me better control. Once the screw bar is removed you have to push the metal tube out of the lugs. At this point you can remove the strap and wings. Reinstall the metal tube and screw bar and you should be good to go.

    Will do. But nothing exciting, it’s my sons watch and he killed the original strap so we replaced with another original
