How to shorten a metal watchband

It is for a casio watch, but the watchband has the same principle with "arrows" on the links.

SOURCE: how to shorten the watch band without breaking it

You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: can't set inner dial on merona watch

You just remove one of the links. I don't think there's a way to set the inner dials. I think it's just for show.

SOURCE: I need to shorten the metal link watch band of my

I just looked at the watch band link more closely and figured out how to remove the links. Pretty engenious link attachment arrangement!

I thought there would be something in the watch manual about band adjustment, but there wasn't. I guess it is not something a "normal" person would be able to do.



Thanks,

How do I shorten ******** my Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch?


Take a look at the watch from the side where the band attaches to the buckle. You should see four holes with one of them having a visible pin in it where the band is connected to the buckle. Moving the band to the right will shorten it moving it to the left will make it bigger. To move it simply get something that you can push the pin in with like a paper clip. Push the pin in and the band should come out move it to the left and push the in again and simply move the band into proper position. Once you do that the pin will snap back into place. If that does not adjust it enough go to your local watch store and they can remove links from the bracelet for you. Shouldn't cost you more than $10.

I bought a webner swiss military standard issue watch with a braclet deployment band. My wrist is tiny....how do I adjust the size?


Take the watch to a watch shop and ask them to shorten it for you. (doing it yourself can be difficult as special tools i.e very thin probes, may be required.

Shortening the Length of a Metal Wrist Band


I just did this for my wife's new Kenneth Cole wrist watch rather easily. You don't need a screwdriver, but a short section of a paper clip will do. I just set the band on a raise surface to allow room for the pin to be pushed out using the paper clip. For this watch, one side of the pin resembles the slotted side of a small screw - but it is not a screw. This is the side that bulges up a bit to help the pin stay in place. I believe if you punch it out from the opposite side it will fall off quickly, but if you do from the bulged side it, too, will come out but with some resistance. To reattach the band you need to punch the pin into the slot in such a way that its bulged side is on top otherwise you may end up with a bent pin. You must also first line up the hole with the paper clip before reinserting the pin. Good luck.
