How do you repair a watch whose band is broken and a spare just won't fit? Answered

I have a northstar cw2 that i unfortunately stepped on and broke the band. I would like to fix it but the bar that runs parallel to the watch face was not connected to the watch frame but set in plastic and now there is just an empty space. I tired a replacement but it just doesn't seem to fit correctly.

There's a reason that the original fell out-you bent the bar or, more likely, you screwed up the holes that hold the bar. You have to replace the plastic or make the holes deeper AND get a longer bar.
