I recently received a Fossil Ch 2506 watch as a gift and have not been able to resize it. The only pin that will come out separates the closing mechanism from the watch band. There are arrows facing outward along the inside of the watch band, but they are in opposing directions. Since it was a gift, I do not have any of the literature that might have come with the watch.

Re: Trouble sizing Fossil Watch CH-2506
Those arrows inside of the watch band are showing direction for pins or clips to come out. If you have two arrows in opposite directions on one link, that means there are two pins or clips and each one must be extracted from arrow pointing side. If there is only one arrow on the link- there is only one clip or pin and must be extracted the arrow pointing way. Some watch bands are held together by very specificly made clips or pins. In this case you will need a special tool to extract them.

Why not go to a store where they sell watches? or google for a fossil store close toy you? In this forum you put a question and have to wait if an what someone gives an answer, not knowing where the person is answering from. I live in Europe and I can't sell you a belt.
And even if I could, sending it over seas could cost as much as 30 euro. exuding the price of a belt close with you.
The file is a compendium of instructions for a large number of Fossil movements, but it is unclertain which movements the model CH-2331 and CH-2698 watches use. However, movement OS10 (page 15) appears to be the only one that matches the dial layout, button layout and also has a date window as the CH-2331. The watch has a quartz analog mechanism and uses one SR927W 1.55-volt silver oxide button cell. Silver oxide cells have low current output, but very long shelf life, so if the stem is pulled out completely when the watch isn't being worn, the battery could last many years. Scan the instructions to match up the CH-2698 with a movement number. A good guess from examining photos of the face of a CH-2698 watch would be movements OS20 / FS00 or VD53.
When you pull out crown, there is two positions (clicks), not just one. First click is for day/date quick setting. Second click is for hand setting. Pull the crown out slowly and carefully and you will soon find out both positions.
Yes, it is quite difficult to get the replacement parts from Switzerland and sometimes takes very long time. In my experience the longest was 9 months for the balance wheel. If you are not satisfied with your watchmaker, check out direct services from Ernst Benz using this link: ernstbenz.ch Here you can find all the info and services they are offering. Do not forget to rate, please.
Measure distance between the lugs of your watch. Find the nearest watchmaker and ask for spring lug of that size (this is if you need to attach band to watch). If you need a pin for bracelet links- measure width of bracelet and ask for split pin of that size.
