Question about Watches
First 4 links on both ends of the watch band have directional arrows pointing to the left on one side and point to the right on the other side . 3links wide and 2 skinny links in center seems like a pin goes through all 5. need to size this watch band . how do i remove the links to size it.
OK basically there must be an element that you can push out in the direction of the arrow. Either there is a very thin pin (like a needle) that you can push out with a blunt sewing needle (break the tip), or there is a more sophisticated system as it is shown under the following link:

Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.
Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.
Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.
Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.
Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).
