Question about Watches
Holding the Watch in your hand facing you, turn it to it's left side. You'll see a succession of small holes in the links wherein lies a removable hinge-pin, locate the link(s) you need to remove, and remove the pin in that link, and then the pin below it to pull the link. To do this, you need either a jewelers punch, (like a small awl, to push the pins out) or fashion one from a pair of pliers (small vise-grips work great for this) and a piece of a safety pin (cut a shank out of the back side of a pin to get a straight stiff shaft.)
When you pull your first pin out, put the watch on and gauge the size you need to make it.
once you have pulled the pins, note that one end of the pin is larger, and when reassembling everything, just take mind to put everything back in the same fashion as the disassembly process.
you'll have to push the pin in flush with either the flat side of some pliers or the side of a table, just make sure they go flush...
hope this helps, thanks for reading!

Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.
Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.
Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.
Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.
Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).
