a jeweler or the fossil store would have the right tools to do the job, but you basically just need something strong and thin enough to fit in the hole where the pin is. You will need a small hammer or something that isn't too big but has enough weight and control to tap the pin out. After that you pretty much just take the link out and reconnect the separated ones.

Check the sides of watch band and you will see the pin ends. They are holding all links together. If there are arrows inside the watch band, they are pointing the way the pins must come out.
To shorten the band you have to:
Extract the pins.
Take link(s) off.
Join the rest of band together and drive pins back.

SOURCE: How do I shorten watch bracelet?

You may 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 start to 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!
Don't forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: I need extra links for my fossil BQ-8792 watch.

Go the Fossil website - http://www.fossil.com. There is a link at the bottom of the page, Customer Care. Clock on that link. On the left there will be a menu item under Product Info that says "ordering links and bands". There is a paragraph titled "Order Links". There is an 800 number to call and they will send you two links just for shipping or if you need more than 2 links, it's $3 per link.

Watch band won't open


It is impossible to say what is wrong without handling the watch. I suggest that you take it to your nearest watch shop and ask them to look it for you.

If they can't do anything for you then the watch may have to be returned to the maker.

To find a local dealer go to the Boluva web site "boluva .com".

I have a Seiko stainless steel ladies watch, 3 years old, only one 'winder' no fancy buttons, analogue style. It has suddenly started beeping every hour - how do I turn it off?


mcdevito75 here, The beeping must be a signal that the battery is weak, have the battery changed. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

How to open Baume & Mercier Hampton Milleis ladies stainless band


Looking at your watch it looks like the clasp on the SS model is just a double deployant preasure fit. If it is brand new sometimes these style of deployants are vary tight.

It is Stainless Steel it is vary difficult to break it looking at the construction of the bracelet.

Basically you just Pull, there is no button it is just pressure fit.

Hi, My ladies black and siver ladies bracelet watch is not keeping time. first the plate in the face kept moving position according to the movement of my wrist. Then it stopped keeping time, so I took it...


I would send it to Fossil anyways. You say the plate is moving, I'm thinking that's the dial (the thing with the Fossil logo and # on it) That is deffinantly under a warrenty. Fossil is pretty good with helping even if you don't have the paperwork, and don't live in the United States. Look them up on the internet, and if you can call first they will give you a # so when you send the watch they already know what to do and can start fixing your watch faster. Tell me what happens , or if I can assits you further. Good Luck!!!
