There shoulf be screws on the side of the watch to remove. If not they will queeze together and pop out and you will need a tool to do this with. So basically if that the case you need to take it to a dealer or shop and have them remove it. Thats the case with some high end watches.

Extra links 96r000


You can go to any jeweler that handles Bulova watches and talk to them. I don't know if they will have the extra links but they might depending on how popular the watch is. They would also be able to show you other bands that can work for you and that watch.

Just replaced the battery on the Bulova Ladies bracelet watch. watch keeps stopping still.


If you have had your watch awhile, it probably needs a clean/oil/adjustment. FIne watches need regular mainentance just like a car. Take to a local watchmaker or send to following:

How to take links out of 96D10 bulova watch


For removing or adding links firstly you will have to remove bracelet pins or screws. In case if there are screw on each side of bracelet - you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. In case if there are pins - read the rest:
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 (screw ends and pin end may look similar). Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and try to unscrew one. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead of screws. 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 punches check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the pin end is coming out long enough - grab it with pliers and 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.

Tighten watch


On this type of watch, you would normally remove sections of the bracelet to tighten it although there is sometimes scope for small adjustment in the clasp itself. This is a fiddly job, and my best advice to you would be to take the watch to your local watch repair/watchmakers/jewellers shop and get them to do it for you - it shouldn't cost you much and hopefully they'd do a professional job.

mcdevito75 here, Many watches built today are not comming out with replacement Bands (straps, Bracelets) from the factory, the cost of makeing and keeping extra bands on hand is too high, they should at least have a few extra links to replace worn ones. Chances are your warantee is over on the watch and in that case, you"ll have to find another band, Bracelet on your own. Best Bet, visit a small watch repair shop in your area for another bracelet, band, Strap.

Cannot open bracelet on Bulova 11606355 watch


Try taking your watch to a local watch shop.

If there is something wrong with it, you can only tell by handling it. Alternatively if there is a special way to do it they will probably know it.
