There are three links on either side of the closure mechanism
marked with an arrow. These are the ones to remove. If you only
need to remove one link, remove it from the six o'clock side of the band. If more than one, then try to balance, one from each side, etc.

The easiest way to remove individual links is with a "link remover"
tool of the sort used by jewelers. These are not expensive. The other way is to get a very small, slim diameter finishing nail and
position the sharp head of the nail in the slightly recessed hole of the link to be removed. The watch band should be perpendicular on a wooden table. Gently pound the nail downward with a hammer. If you're skillful, and lucky, you can get a 1/16" or more of the retaining pin to protrude from the other end. Now, use needle-nose pliers to gently twist and rock the protruding nub of the pin, and try to pull it out. Good luck with that.

You'll need to remove two retaining pins for each link, or consecutive run of links, that you're removing. Then reconnect
and line up the remaining links and (gently) insert and/or pound
one of the removed retaining pins back into the hole to keep the watch band assembly intact.

Again, good luck!

How to set time on m.z. berger wrist watch


Hi Hollywoo,
As far as I can see Berger watches all have what I would call a winder knob. You normally pull this out gently and then turn it to move the hands of the watch - ie: to set the time. When finished just push it back in.

How do I change batteries on a M.Z. Berger AW 213 watch


I know it's been a while since you posted this question, but I just had to do this with mine after it was lost in a drawer for a few years, and I had no luck googling so I had to figure it out for myself.

First, you have to remove the band, but you only need to do this on one end, not both. I did this by twisting the watch body around while holding the cloth/leather portion of the band still, letting the elastic part twist around with the watch body. Then, just use a fingernail to pull on the ridges on one end of one of the pins that are holding the band on; both ends are spring-loaded, so it doesn't matter which. Twist the watch body back around, and you'll now be able to flip it over to expose the back.

Now, take a thin, strong blade (I used a butterknife) and pry off the back plate. There's a tab on the upper right edge of the back plate to make this much easier. Since it probably came off in the process, place the rubber sealant ring back around the edge of the backplate.

Once you have the back plate off, there's a thin metal piece covering the battery that's held on with one screw. Remove that with an eyeglass screwdriver or any other similarly-sized Phillips-head screwdriver. There's just a small tab holding the metal piece in place on the other side, so just flip the metal piece up a bit and pull it out. You can now take the battery (a CR2016 3-volt watch battery) right out.

But wait, what's this? Beneath that battery, separated by a small plastic insert, is another, smaller one, a 377/376 1.55-volt watch battery. The 377/376 powers the analog movement, while the CR2016 powers all the digital stuff and the backlight.

Replace both batteries, making sure to place the plastic insert back on top of the 377/376 before putting the CR2016 back in, and follow the steps in reverse to put the watch back together. You may have some difficulty getting the back plate back on, but I just pressed one side in and held it while I tapped the other side down with my fist.

How to set the time on a digital watch


Hi, you need to find the little black "set" button which is located on the right side of the watch between the two functioning buttons. its very little. Press it once with like a needle or a pen tip (because you cant reach it with your fingers). You can then set the time.

Need to add links to a new Elgin watch band. The number on back of watch is SR626sw


That's the battery number for the watch also known as the #377. It's the most common watch battery in the world. Your model number is located at the bottom of the dial (face) below the six-o'clock position. You will need a 10 power jeweler's loupe or magnifying glass to see it and read it. Jot down the number and contact Elgin directly (MZ Berger Co,) for the extra links.
