You need the a watch link remover tool. This can be purchased online or a jeweler can do it for you. I would take the watch to where you purchased it and they should do it for free.

SOURCE: How to take out band links?

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.
Don't forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the watch band(remove the links)

This may seem simple to do but it is literally a ***** of a task. Best to where amplifying glasses and use a ball point pen, not a pin or pencil. Push one side of the pin in while keeping a slight outward pressure on the band. When it releases be care full not to let it fly off into the void(which they can) and then move to where you need the band to be and reinstall using a single edge razor blade. Just carefully align the opposite side (assuming youve alredy put one end in)place the razor blade on center and slide the remaining pin into the hole area pull the blade out slowly and listen for it to click into place.

mcdevito75 here, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, You"d need a tool to remove that link, by the time you get the tool, the time to remove the link, is about the same cost of haveing a shop do the job.

Wrist watch shortening


Look at the inside of the band and there will arrows pointing what direction the to tap the pins out to remove links. Put the watch on a small roll of tape or something similar that keeps the band off the surface you are working on. Gently tap the pin out with a tool that will fit in the pin hole. Remove the pin and determine the number of links to remove. Remove the links and reverse the order in which you took it apart .

Can't adjust the wrist band on citizec C651


Look where the band connects to the fold-over clasp. There are several holes on the clasp. Use a plastic headed thumbtack or some other small pointed object to push the pin in and move to desired hole to fit your wrist.
If the longest adjustment is still not big enough you will need to add a link to the band. You can contact Citizen Watch at 800-321-1023 they will send you 3 links at no charge.

Adjust ladies citizen watch metal link band


If it is a metal link band, you can remove a few segments. Segments are connected by split pens. You should see a thinner end and a bigger end; or an arrow on the inside shows where the thinner end should be. Push the thinner end firmly with a pin or something until the big end pops out the opposite side.Use pliers to remove the pin.

Sizing the band on a citizen skyhawk


Be careful, there are end caps on certain pins.
You need a jewelers pin punch. Push the pins out (in the direction of the arrows). You'll see some pins come out with a tiny end cap on one end. If you lose this, you'll have to slightly bend or adapt one pin end, because if you replace it WITHOUT the end cap, it will start coming out in a few hours.

Link removal of stainless steel watch band


Actually, this seems to be the big end of the split pen. Take a pin and push into the opposite hole ontil the big end pops out, then use pliers to pull it out. It should be easy to put it back. There should be an arrow on the inside of the band to show where to push.
