Question about Timex Outdoor Casual Expedition® Aluminum Trail 46461 Wrist Watch
I have a similar watch and removing the links are not easy. There are pins in certain links that have arrows on the inside of the band. I used a push pin to remove the pins in the direction of the arrows. Snip the end of the push pin with a wire cutter or pliers so that it fits into the hole and tap the top of the push pin with a small hammer until the other end of the pin is exposed enough to extract it with a set of needle nosed pliers. Repeat for other side of link. When the pin is extracted, twist the link inward and it should snap out.
Remove the link and reverse the procedure, placing the pin in the opposite direction as it was extracted. You may have to tap it gently with the push pin and hammer to get it to go into the holes flush.
It takes a little while and some patience, but if you can get someone to hold the band for you while you tap the pin, it will be easier. Also, if you remove the spring loaded pin from the band fastener so the band can be laid out straight, it will also be easier. Good luck!

It probably is a pin that is holding the links together. When you look on the inside of the band is there an arrows pointing in one direction. If so then you need to push out the pins in that direction and then put them back in the opposite direction.

It is for a casio watch, but the watchband has the same principle with "arrows" on the links.
