How to remove link from band

This Omega 007 Seamsater's band is not like my old Seiko. You squeeze two buttons on the clasp to release it. Once the band is open I can not figure out how to adjust it or remove a link, The band is to large. Do I need special tools for this job? Thanks for a any help...

The segments of your bracelet are held together with friction pins which have to be removed first in order to adjust it. This is a relatively complicated task requiring experience and a special tool to remove and return the pins and bushings back correctly without compromising the bracelet strength.
I recommend taking your watch to an Omega authorised dealer for adjustment while you wait.

How do you remove links from my watch band DKNY?


Instructions
    • 1 Determine the amount of links that need to be removed for the watch to fit on your arm correctly.
    • 2 Find the tiny holes on each link. Most DKNY link wristwatches, such as the 3107 model, have holes at the links near the clasp.
    • 3 Using the screwdriver, gently push the pin holding the link bar on the first link you want to remove. The link bar should come out on the other side.
    • 4 Take the pliers and completely remove the link bar from the band. The link band will still be attached to the clasp. Remove the link with the pliers. Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for each additional link you want to remove.
    • 5 Gather the watch band and and bring the two sides back together. Join the link bar and the clasp together and, using the screwdriver, press the link bar back into the hole completely.

How do I remove links from a Seiko watch band?


Follow these steps and it will help u resize your watch.
1-Take a good look at the watch bracelet. Seiko watch bands are equipped with one of two different types of pins holding the links in place. One type is a simple, nail-shaped pushpin that's inserted into the joint between two links. The second is a flat, L-shaped piece of metal that slides into the center of a link and locks it into place. Both pins are removed using the same process. If the nail-shaped pushpin is present, you'll see the tiny screw heads in the joints. If the L-shaped pin is present, the links will be open-sided and you'll be able to see a strip of metal inserted in each links.
2-
Look for the arrows on the inside of the watch bracelet links. The arrows indicate the direction the pins and links need to be slid off of the band. Any attempt to go against the arrows could break or warp the links.
3-Remove the spring bar from the clasp with the small pin-removal tool. Set the watch up on it's side so that the top of the spring bar is facing up and the bottom is flush against the table. Put moderate pressure on the top of the spring bar and tilt the watch just a bit sideways so that the spring bar can slide out. Ease out the bar slowly and carefully; the spring bar is spring-loaded and will shoot away from the watch if you're not careful (make sure that the bottom of the watch is pointed away from you at all times). Put the spring bar in a small dish so it doesn't get lost.
4-Line up a small pin-removal tool with the top of the pin and push in the direction of the arrow until it slides out completely. Slide off the link. Place the pin and the link in the small dish. You'll want to save them in case the watch needs to be re-sized again at a later date. Continue removing links, alternating sides of the band to keep it even, until the watch reaches the desired size.
5-Reconnect the watch. On the side opposite where the spring bar was removed, line up the link connected to the clasp and the second link on the band. Slide the pin in the opposite direction of the arrow, using a flat-headed pin inserter to push it into the joint. Use the pin-removal tool to give it a final push, listening for the click.
6-
Reinsert the spring bar slowly, using the pin inserter. Make sure the spring bar is lined up and tightly in place to avoid injury.
Try this and it you cant manage it then you need to get it to a watch repair shop specializing in that brand.

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?


Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.

But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
  • Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
  • Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
  • Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
  • Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
  • Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.

Ive had my Seiko automatic titanium scuba 200m about 3 years when i got it, i had it sized down by taking out 3 links which the store gave me back and 3 pins that go with , ive put on a few pounds maxed...


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
Seiko normally will send out up to 5 extra links on new watches. I am not sure on watches that are 3 years old but you will need to contact Seiko on this one. MAYBE a watchmaker locally will have some extra peices that will work too.
You can contact Seiko here:

Other than removing links, can I make smaller adjustments to the band on my Omega seamster limited edition?


mcdevito75 here, You should right at the clasp, simply remove the pin and move the entire band up thru the other adjustment holes you see along side the clasp itself. If there aren"t any additional holes along side of the clasp for the band to move up closer to the clasp lock, then no other adjustments can be made.

Adjust watch band for Seiko 7T94 Stanless Steel Band


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.

How do i put on the wave ceptor ?


This depends on what you mean by your question.
To adjust the size of the band, if you look on the inside of the links (the side that goes against your wrist), you will find that at each link joint, there is a spring-pin (like the traditional pins for attaching bands to watches) which can be easily removed.  Remove the necessary number of links to size the band to your wrist.
To put the watch on your wrist, merely position it as desired, and, close the clasp by grasping the outer buckle with your fingers, placing your thumb against the mid-segment, and squeezing the two together. Then, move that assemblage upwards toward your wrist.  Move your thumb out of the way as it approaches closure and push it together until the outer buckle clasp clicks into place around the stud on the inner segment.
If you are asking how to get the watch to receive the time from WWVB, this will happen automatically once per day (three attempts per day until one is successful).  If you want to manually trigger an attempt, this can be accomplished by holding the "RECEIVE" button for a few seconds until the watch beeps and the display reads "RC!".  It will then attempt to receive the signal from WWVB for several minutes and calibrate if successful.
You can identify whether the last synchronization attempt was successful or not by the display in the lower right corner while the time is displayed.  It will show an antenna and three bar-graph segments if it was successful, or, be blank if it was unsuccessful.
If you mean something else by "put on the waveceptor", I'm afraid I don't understand your question.

Aquaswiss Trax watch band adjustment


VSNDESIGNS SAYS:

You should first try to adjust the band at the Clasp first. The clasp has three holes that you could easily move your band up or down into. If you need to remove one or more of the links, try the following.
