SOURCE: Remove link form Relic Wrist band

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

Hope this works for you!

SOURCE: how to adjust metal wrist band on casio watch?

  1. Pop out one spring pin to disconnect the band from the watch or from itself at the clasp. If you don't have a special tool for this, a needle or a pin will probably work. A straightened paper clip may be too thick, but they are cheap so you could try it. Now the watch and band can sit flat on the work table.
  2. Examine the links. If some of them have little arrows on them (usually the ones closest to both sides of the clasp), they are removable.
  3. These removable links are held together by a "U" shaped (actually a squared off "U" - sort of like this |_| ) pin that is inserted into the link. There may should be some kind of window-like opening in the link into which you can insert a narrow screwdriver or similar tool or even a small nail (around 6-penny size) and push out the |_| shaped pin. A straightened paper clip is probably not sturdy enough, but you could try it. Push in the direction of the arrow (from tail to point). The links that were joined by the |_| pin can now be separated.
  4. Remove a second such pin from another adjacent link. Now a single link is free and can be discarded (or kept). Reconnect the remaining adjustable links with one of the |_| pins and re-attach the spring pin from step 1 so the band is reunited with itself or with the watch.
  5. Try it on. If it is still too long, repeat the process. Good luck.

Save your nerves and your money. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to get links out. If you will try to do it yourself, you will loose your strap as you wont be able to put it back together. If you anyway decided to do it yourself, click on my profile and check out my solutions. I do explained all this tricky job to one customer about a year ago, so, you will definitely find it if you have enough patience to go through all my solutions. Rate me plz.

Versace watch ( wristband)


Same place where you bought the watch, mate, same place where you bought the watch. Surely the watch is a Versage but the wrist band can be any band you can find at any good watchmaker of jeweller. ;)
