Question about Watches
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!
