Hi All

 

I need a little help with a repair to my TW Steel watch.  The rivets on the arm to the side that hold the adjust crown need replacing due to a little heavy handedness on my behalf.  Can anyone help with either supply, replacement or recomendation for it to be fixed?

 

See attached pics.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Keith

Can you do a close up of the back of the rivet?
Looks like it's one of those pressure fit tubes. Pretty sure I could help you out

They are in fact hollow rivets that look like screws. Both need replacing but I'm unsure how to do them as I don't have the tools.

Not quite right thanks Michael and I can't find anything similar online.  I've now contacted a TW Steel repairer to see if they will supply me with the rivets.

Update.  I've found a TW Steel Service Centre called SWICO who can service/repair the watch, although they want to replace the 'crown assembly' which I think is overkill, but heh ho, at least I can get it sorted.

 

Thanks for the advice and help chaps ;-)
