Steps to Exchange & Install a Casio Casing

As customizing a Casio casing is becoming more and more popular, especially changing it with the Swarovski crystal casing or with the "CasiOak" casing, if you want to exchange and install a new casing for your Casio watch, here are the general steps to follow:

  1. Gather materials: You will need a replacement watch casing, a small Phillips screwdriver, a case opener tool (or a thin blade or flathead screwdriver), and a clean, flat surface to work on.

  2. Remove the watch band: Most Casio watch bands are attached with spring bars that can be easily removed with a spring bar tool or a small flathead screwdriver. Gently pry the spring bar out of the watch lugs on each side of the watch case, and slide the band off the watch.

  3. Open the watch case: Place the watch face down on a clean, flat surface. Use a case opener tool to remove the back cover of the watch. If you don't have a case opener tool, you can use a thin blade or a flathead screwdriver to gently pry the back cover off the watch.

  4. Remove the movement: Once the back cover is removed, carefully lift out the watch movement from the case. Some Casio watches have a retaining clip or a screw that holds the movement in place, so you may need to use a small Phillips screwdriver to remove these before you can lift out the movement.

  5. Remove the old casing: Take note of how the old casing is positioned in the watch and carefully remove it from the movement. Be sure to keep any small parts or screws that may fall out during this process.

  6. Install the new casing: Carefully position the new casing onto the watch movement, making sure that it fits securely and that all the holes and slots line up correctly. Use any small screws or retaining clips that were included with the replacement casing to hold it in place.

  7. Reassemble the watch: Once the new casing is in place, carefully reinsert the watch movement back into the case. Make sure that the stem is properly aligned with the winding mechanism before you screw it back in place. Finally, reattach the watch band by sliding the spring bars back into the watch lugs.

  8. Test the watch: Check that the watch is running and that all the functions are working properly. If everything looks good, put the back cover back on the watch and use a case opener tool or your fingers to snap it securely into place.

Congratulations, you have now successfully exchanged and installed a new casing for your Casio watch! Somehow, the effort of such by a non watch service professional can always associate with some level of risk.
