1. Find your Casio watch model number:

In order to find the correct replacement watch strap, watch band or metal bracelet for your Casio watch, you need to look on the back of your watch for the model number. This is printed on the back plate of your watch and will start with one or more letters, followed by some numbers e.g. W-96, BGA-169 or WVA-430U. Once you have the model number for your watch you can use this information to search for the correct strap or bracelet.
The number shown in the box on the back of the watch is the 'module' number and is used to identify the correct replacement parts for the watch workings.

2. Find your replacement watch strap by strap code:

Another way to identify the watch strap you need for your Casio watch is to look on the inside of the existing watch strap or metal bracelet. In some cases (not all) there is a code imprinted on the strap or bracelet. This will usually take the form of a series of letters and numbers such as 576-H1-17 or S-934DV. This code can also be useful in identifying the correct replacement watch strap.

3. Fitting your replacement watch strap:

Many Casio watch straps are fitted to the watch case using spring bars. These are small metal bars with compressable ends which slot through the ends of the strap and fit into small holes on the inside of the watch case shoulders. To remove these you simply need a small implement, such as a small screwdriver, or spring bar removal tool, to compress one end of the spring bar and lever it out. You can reuse the spring bars to fit the new watch strap.
In some cases the straps are held in place with screwed rods, which can be removed with screwdrivers. Generally these comprise a female threaded rod and a male screw which is screwed into one end of the rod. Both ends will have crosshead screw heads and you will need two screwdrivers to undo them. Use one screw-driver to prevent one end from turning and use the other to unscrew the other end. Again these screwed rods can be reused.
Sometimes the watch strap appears to use screwed rods, but the screws maybe ornamental only and the strap may in fact be held in by spring bars.
Some Casio watches use strap ends or clips to hold the spring bars in position. These may sit on the top of the watch strap as with the PRG-110 & PAW-1300, or clip underneath the strap as with the WVA-430 and GW-M850 (see below). In this case the spring bar can be compressed by pushing a small implement such as a bradawl or paperclip through the hole in one side of the end clip. You can reuse the end clips to fit the new watch strap.
In most cases if the connecting bars or clips are lost or damaged these can be purchased separately.
