FAQ: What are Quick Change or Quick Release Watch Bands

Here at Tech Swiss, we often get asked about Quick Change or Quick Release watch bands. Most of the time, the question is, "What are Quick Change Watch Bands?" These are bands that have built-in spring bars that can be removed without tools. Spring bars are the small metal pieces that connect leather bands to the watch case. Sometimes, these pins are integrated into the design of the band, making them easy to remove with your fingers. Quick Change bands do not need a spring bar removing tool to be removed.

You can see a close up of the quick change lever below:

The lever is raised slightly above the watch band to allow you to remove the spring bar with your finger. No tools required! Quick change bands are great for anyone who wants to change the style of their band on a regular basis. Hence the name, Quick Change!
