Link removal of stainless steel watch band

I have a Citizen Stiletto Eco Drive and cannot find a way to remove the links in the bands. There is what looks like a flat screw head on the links. However, I canot turn this with a jeweler's screw driver.

Actually, this seems to be the big end of the split pen. Take a pin and push into the opposite hole ontil the big end pops out, then use pliers to pull it out. It should be easy to put it back. There should be an arrow on the inside of the band to show where to push.

Wrist watch shortening


Look at the inside of the band and there will arrows pointing what direction the to tap the pins out to remove links. Put the watch on a small roll of tape or something similar that keeps the band off the surface you are working on. Gently tap the pin out with a tool that will fit in the pin hole. Remove the pin and determine the number of links to remove. Remove the links and reverse the order in which you took it apart .

I have bought citizen watch JR3080-51L , and I need some more links because I got a watch that is good for 7" wrist and I need 8.5" wrist. Thanks


I've had to get extra links before, especially for ladies SS and gold bands. Sometimes a local dealer will have spares that will fit your watch. But, the best source I've found is Ebay. Let me know if you have the stock band or something else. I'll try to help you locate some extra links, or another replacement band at a modest cost. Thanks, Bill

How can I resize a citizen watch with an expandable band? It's a little too big. The owner's manual doesn't tell. Thank you-


If you look carefully on the inner side of expandable bands, there's usually the removable links of the band near one or both ends of the band.
These usually have arrows indicating which direction the locking pin/tab slides to unlock and allow removal.
If you're careful, you can unlock them and remove one or two by using a small screwdriver. A very inexpensive alternative is to find a local watch repair shop and have them resize if for you while you wait. They've got the mini-tools and it's usually very reasonable (around here, there's a couple chain grocery stores that have watch repair kiosks inside..great alternative and cheap).

How do you adjust the watch band(remove the links)


This may seem simple to do but it is literally a ***** of a task. Best to where amplifying glasses and use a ball point pen, not a pin or pencil. Push one side of the pin in while keeping a slight outward pressure on the band. When it releases be care full not to let it fly off into the void(which they can) and then move to where you need the band to be and reinstall using a single edge razor blade. Just carefully align the opposite side (assuming youve alredy put one end in)place the razor blade on center and slide the remaining pin into the hole area pull the blade out slowly and listen for it to click into place.

Adjust ladies citizen watch metal link band


If it is a metal link band, you can remove a few segments. Segments are connected by split pens. You should see a thinner end and a bigger end; or an arrow on the inside shows where the thinner end should be. Push the thinner end firmly with a pin or something until the big end pops out the opposite side.Use pliers to remove the pin.

Watchband is one segment too long


You need the a watch link remover tool. This can be purchased online or a jeweler can do it for you. I would take the watch to where you purchased it and they should do it for free.
