The only place you can get them is at a watchrepair. Sometimes I have found wierd sized link holes and have had to make my own pins. I just take a small nail and file it to the size I need. If you have a dremmil tool with a sandpaper attachment it is so much easier! Take a nail that is a little bit longer than the link is and sand down in a slow graduating cone shape, make sure to top of the nail is a little bit wider than the hole on the top of the link. Once you have that , put the smaller end in the link , line up the other link so that the pin goes into both links , and then tap it in. The pin should go into the bottom of the links. It might be good to do this on a piece of wood so that if the pin goes a little through the bottom, you don't damage anything. Try to make the pin as tight as you can, and than file (or dremmil) the top and bottom to the links size. If you still have problems please let me know, and maybe I can help you further. Good luck!!!!!

I need instructions on removing links from a Fossil Stella watch


you will need some sort of tool for a pin pusher to actually remove the pin from watch . It can be a strong needle of some sorts but I suggest getting an actual pin pusher to prevent from damaging the watch or hurting yourself.

if you look inside the watch band itself you will see on the links an arrow pointing one direction. That is the direction you need to push the pin since the pin head is larger and cannot be pushed the opposite direction .

On the side of the watch links you will see a small circle endented with a pin head. That is the link pin. Place your pin pusher or other similar sized object and with a small or jeweler hammer slowly and lightly hit the pin pusher down until pin comes out of opposite side , you can use tweezers or needle nose pliers to pull pin all the way out

There are some pin removers that screw also or just push down to pop pin .

Once out repeat process until you have removed enough links that watch fits comfortably. Then slide pins with head of pin entering the side where the arrow on back of link is pointing to. Once all the way in gently hammer rest of pin till flush with link .

Would you happen to have a watch band pin (link that attaches band directly to the watch casing) for a Fossil Blue Model AM-3515? Great difficulty locating one of these. Thanks for any help on this.


mcdevito75 here, This pin is called a spring bar, while I have many of these I would need the watch to match up the spring bar with the caseing. Best Bet, see a small watch repair shop in your area. Approx. Cost, $5.00 plus install.

Fossil AM4200 shorten band


Depending on the age of the watch you will see indicators of pin direction on the inside of the band. Little arrows that point the direction the pins should come out. If there are no arrows you can look at the edge of the band. You are looking for a split in the pin that makes it look like a screw. The opposite side will be solid. You want to push on the side that is solid so the side that looked split comes out. This is a cotter pin and the split side is bigger and needs to come out first. Use a small punch to push the pins out. Make sure you take links from the band evenly on either side.

Trying to remove links on a fossil watch w/arrrows pointing out


Are you pushing the links in the same direction as the arrow is pointing? If so, are you using a tool specifically made for removing watch links? If the answer to both of the above is "yes" then look closely at your watch. The pin will look different on both sides. One side will look like the head of a "screw" and the other will look rounded and just come to a point. You always want to use the watch link remover tool on the ROUNDED end and push the "screw" looking end out. It could be that your watch was assembled w/the pin facing the wrong direction.

If you appreciate me solving this for you then please rank this solution as "fixya" or at least "helpful", thanks!

Trouble sizing Fossil Watch CH-2506


Those arrows inside of the watch band are showing direction for pins or clips to come out. If you have two arrows in opposite directions on one link, that means there are two pins or clips and each one must be extracted from arrow pointing side.
If there is only one arrow on the link- there is only one clip or pin and must be extracted the arrow pointing way.
Some watch bands are held together by very specificly made clips or pins. In this case you will need a special tool to extract them.

Need pin for band on Fossil Am 3754


Measure distance between the lugs of your watch. Find the nearest watchmaker and ask for spring lug of that size (this is if you need to attach band to watch).
If you need a pin for bracelet links- measure width of bracelet and ask for split pin of that size.

I need to know how to remove links from a Fossil watch with a metal band that has arrows pointing the opposite directions. Can you help?


That means you can take the links out either way. Take a small pin that fits in the hole and lightly tap on the pin. If you find you have problems, add a LITTLE oil in the whole, this should make it easier, though a little messy.

Trying to shorten the band on a fossil watch. removable links have arrows which point outward on both sides of the link.


You need a small, (smaller than the pin hole) punch to force the pins out of the band. Since the arrows point in both directions you can push from either direction. Push enough of the pin out to be able to grasp it with a pair of small pliers and remove it. Do that on both sides of the link, replace the extra with a small hammer and you're done.
