Removing a link from the wrist band of the Stauer Colossus watch is a task that requires some mechanical talent. The links are held together with pins. These pins need to be pushed out. I strongly recommend the purchase of a "Watch Band Link Pin Remover" (got mine on eBay for $7). Prepared with this tool, the steps are as follows.

a) Separate the wrist band at the position where the strap and latch are held together. Careful! This pin is spring loaded.
b) The links that can be removed are marked with an arrow on the interior side. The pin should be removed in the direction indicated by the arrow.
c) With the previously mentioned tool you will be able to perform the hardest part, namely push out the pin by 3/16". In the image below note how the pushed out pin goes into the groove of the tool.

d) Use a small screwdriver or a punch with diameter of less than 0.07" (or 1.8 mm) in order to push out the pin completely (see second picture).
The push pin of the tool can be reversed which is helpful for re-assembly. I recommend smoothing the one end of the pin with a small file or sandpaper. This way the pin enters easily into the hole of the lower section. Else you run the danger of bending the link if the pin is not correctly positioned and you apply too much force.

Hour, minute and second hands don't work, why?


Yes, there are two batteries in the 19093 (Compendium Hybrid). The first battery (CR2025) is visible as soon as you remove the back cover plate. The CR2025 controls the digital half of the watch and the back light. The second battery is underneath the circuit board that the CR2025 is connected to. There are 6 small screws that will need to be removed to lift the circuit board and gain access to the second battery. The second battery is an SR626SW.
