Alllways try screwdriver first. If the pin doesn'y come out when you unscrewing it, that means you have pins instead. Use small steel pin and hammer to drive the pins out. Make sure that the split end comes out of the hole first.

I have a geneva watch with a large stainless steel band and can't seem to get the pins to release can u help


Are you sure they are cotter pins? Sometimes they can be mistaken for screws and vice/versa. If they are cotter pins then you need to have a small "punch" tool and a hammer to tap it out. Be careful though because if its a different kind of pressure pin there can be tiny sleeves that put the pressure onto the band to hold it in place! Might want to take it to a reputable watch repair shop to save you the time and possible frustration of attempting an adjustment yourself!

Having trouble removing pin from men's Ebel 1911


Watchmakers are using special pin removing tools and punches. You can find them on Ebay. If you have pins you can not damage threads as pins do not have any threads - they are friction fitted. Punch must be the size of the pin end you can see. Some pins come out easily, some quite hard, so, use appropriate strength to drive pins out. In case if there are screws - use small screwdriver to fit in the slotted screw end and unscrew the screw.

Removing pins from men's 1911 Ebel wrist band


Punch must be metal. Size of punch must be the same as the screw size. Punch must go into the hollow part left by the screw, so, when tapped, the screw end (nut) will come out from the opposite side to where screw came out. Start tapping lightly and go harder and harder till you see the ends coming out. Read my tip - it can help as well. Tools can be bought on Ebay.

How to remove links from band


This band is put together with cotter pins. To remove the cotter pins look at the edge of the band. The end of the pin that comes out is split and looks like a screw. The end that is solid is the end you want to push from. Use a small punch to push the pin out. The split end is the bigger end of the cotter pin so it needs to come out and go back in the same way it came out. Make sure you remove an even number of links on each side so the watch sits on the wrist the right way. You also have a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust the clasp simply use a punch to press the spring bar in the clasp in until it moves. This is a spring bar so be careful it doesnt jump out if the clasp comes apart.

How do you adjust the length of a wrist watch band ?


This particular model has cotter pins. Locate the head of the cotter pin by looking at the side of the band. On one side the pins will look split like screws. On the other side they will be solid. The side that is split is the side that needs to come out first so you want to use a thin punch and press out from the solid side. make sure you replace the pins the same way they came out.
Many Times watches also have a micro adjustment on the clasp.

Resize the watch


If the band is screws then a small screw driver will do the trick. Make sure you use the right size screw driver so you do not strip the screws.
If the band is put together with cotter pins you can push out the cotter pins with a small awl or punch. You want to apply pressure to the end of the pin that is not split or appears to be smooth. Usually when you have cotter pins they are arrows or indicators on the band to tell you which way the pins come out. Make sure you put the pins back the same way they came out.

Croton Men's All Stainless Day/Date Sport Bracelet (CA301091SSDW)


I had the same problem & called Croton. If the band has arrows on the underside of the band they are pins that are pushed in. If that is the case, just find something like a punch small enough, or very pointy, and tap the pins out in the direction of the arrows underneath the band. If there are no arrows on the underside of the bands, then the pins might be threaded & screwed in.

Shortening the Length of a Metal Wrist Band


I just did this for my wife's new Kenneth Cole wrist watch rather easily. You don't need a screwdriver, but a short section of a paper clip will do. I just set the band on a raise surface to allow room for the pin to be pushed out using the paper clip. For this watch, one side of the pin resembles the slotted side of a small screw - but it is not a screw. This is the side that bulges up a bit to help the pin stay in place. I believe if you punch it out from the opposite side it will fall off quickly, but if you do from the bulged side it, too, will come out but with some resistance. To reattach the band you need to punch the pin into the slot in such a way that its bulged side is on top otherwise you may end up with a bent pin. You must also first line up the hole with the paper clip before reinserting the pin. Good luck.
