SOURCE: Need to remove links in metal watch band Fossil 10

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.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
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 blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, 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.

SOURCE: are fossil 10 atm watches

No watch is "water proof." As a matter of fact, there's a U.S. law on the books that watches (and other equipment) can only be described as "water resistant," since nothing other than a solid object can completely shed water.

All that said, the 10 ATM designation is meant to convey that when the watch was new, it was supposed to withstand up to 10 atmospheres of external pressure--which would translate into being about 300-330 feet underwater. That's pretty water proof in my book.

HOWEVER, and this is a big caveat, a watch's water resistance rating is based on its condition at the time that it left the factory. Over time, the little gaskets that help keep water out of the watch will begin to wear and provide less water resistance. In particular, official factory servicing states that the neoprene gasket between the case and caseback of the watch should be replaced every time that you change the battery. In fact, most people, including me, re-use that gasket if it still looks pretty good when I open the watch. That definitely compromises the factory water resistance rating.

Bottom line: If you have a watch rated for 10 ATM of water resistance that's a few years old, I wouldn't be all that concerned about getting it casually wet, or even going swimming with the watch (I'm paranoid enough that I wouldn't do this, but I'm probably in the minority). However, I wouldn't go diving with a watch that's had its battery replaced unless it was re-tested for water resistance after the battery was serviced. Some but not all jewelers have special machines that perform this test. If you're interested, you could probably pay one of them a few dollars to have your watch tested. They don't have to do anything to the watch other than place it in their machine, so it's not a big deal for someone who has the equipment to perform this test.

I Have a fossil 10 atm watch & the date doesn't change automatically so i change it manually but then half way thought the day it changes the date


Your watch is 12 hours out of step.

The date changes every second time the hour hand passes 12 O'clock.

Your watches' second pass is at midday instead of midnight, so to make it operate correctly, you need to wind it on 12 hours. The date will then change at midnight.
