You may 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 start to 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,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!

I am trying to remove 2 links from a ladies indiglo watchband


mcdevito75 here, To remove the links from any watch band requires a special tool called a Link Remover tool, available on ebay. You can remove the links without the tool but the time and work, just isn"t worthit, even with the tool if you don"t know anything about watches, your best bet would be to look for a small watch repair shop in your area , and have them remove the links, hold onto these links in case you need to ever replace them.

I Have a problem with my Technomarine ABS05. There is changed a battery by someone. but the watch doesnt work. I removed the back and some oil came out. where can i find that sort of oil? How can I change...


Hi,

Oil should not come out of a watch. There just isn't that much oil in a watch to have it dripping out.

Are you sure it wasn't water? I can see where moisture could have gotten inside the watch if it was not sealed properly after the battery change.

The fast mall battery change places, jewelers and mart stores do not hire people that are trained to change batteries properly. We have a love hate relationship with those places. We love them because they keep us in business with all the watches they damage. We hate that they are in the business of replacing batteries in the first place because of how many watches they damage.

If you had one of those cheap battery stores replace the battery most likely they did not reseal your watch and it got water inside. This water will cause the problems you have now with your watch.

You will need to have a qualified watchmaker repair your watch.

Hope this helps,

Ken

Can't figure out how to revove links to make it the proper size


locate the arrows on the inside of the watch, use a push pin and small hammer, and lightly tap the push pin into the groove while bracing it on both sides so the pin has room to come out. Make sure the direction you are hammering is the same direction the arrow points. The pins inside are tapered, and will only come out in the one direction. Do this on two of the pins to remove one link, or leave one pin between the two being removed to remove two links. Put the watch back together by reversing the first step. Hope that helps!

How to change the strap of leather to the gel strap technomarine


Hello,
What is the reference of the watch? On the Cruise collection, the process is very simple: 1.      (To remove band) Squeeze the easy release spring bar to one side until it detaches from the watch case completely, do the same for both bands.
2.      (To attach new band) Take the straps that you want to put on and squeeze the easy release spring bar with your (nail or screwdriver) and insert into little groove, it should snap right into place
3.      Do the same for other band

Remove links from fossil metal band


The links most likely need a tool that will push the pins out so you can adjust the bracelet. This can be easily done by any jeweler or watch store. You can also order these types of tools online to do it yourself at home. Please do not attempt to remove links without the proper tools as you will not be able to remove them and you will also damage both the bracelet and the pins.
