About a month ago, we did an article about replacing the orange color watch bands on our Timex TX watch. We are not sure why, but after a month of wear they were filthy again and we can't get them clean!
The first time we tried replacing the bands, we had some problems. After a bit of work and with the right tools, we did manage to loosen the retaining pins and make the exchange. Now that we know how to take the bands off and on, this swap only took us five minutes. The TX looks almost as good with a black band as it does with a day-glo orange one.
We are not sure if the silicone band picked up some dye from our jackets or that we are just messy in general, but it appears we are more suited for the black watch band than the orange one :-) We'll report back on how this one does in a month or so. [Permalink]- Black TX Bands
