    Metal bracelet - I have lost the bushes which hold the pins in place

    Hi.

    Model - Casio MTG S1000D

    Whilst resizing the bracelet for this watch I managed to lose two of the tiny bushes (sleeves?) which fit into each link to provide a tight fit for the pin which holds two links together.

    I don't know whether this bushing arrangement is standard practice for watch bracelets, or the correct name for the missing items. (I hope that I have described them adequately.)

    Is it possible to buy replacement bushes? If so, where?

    Thank you.

    I would think that this pin and collar(?) system for bracelets is fairly common... and if so, virtually any jeweler could probably fix it for you. That's my guess, anyway!

    Are they the "c ring (band links)" listed in this parts list? Casio MTGS1000BS-1A Parts and Accessories Library from Pacparts

    (If so, there's a parts source as well.)

    Such sleeves are normally known as "bushings".

    Thank you for the great advice.

    Yes, the parts are the C-rings. I am in the UK so ship;ing costs would make it a little expensive to order from Pac Parts. I therefore contacted Casio UK's parts department, asked for C-rings for this watch and placed an order.

    Thanks again for the (very quick) help.

    When people are looking for parts, THIS is why my first counter-question is usually "where do you live?"

    Another great UK source for Casio watch parts (and other brands) is Tiktox.com.

    I know that Citizen uses these bushings as well. I made the mistake of sizing a bracelet on a Citizen watch expecting only a pin to come out. The bushing ejected rapidly and vanished into the microscopic wilderness of my living room floor (never found it). I was able to obtain replacements (gratis from Citizen service). These are probably made in a standard size so it should be likely to source one from a local jeweler.
