I have a professional adjustment kit for my watches now, but before I did, I was able to remove links and adjust metal bands with just a few simple tools. The key to doing this without damaging the links is to find sturdy tools that will suit your needs, while making sure you have the watch on a soft towel or small cloth. First I would place the watch face on the towel, and have another folded up cloth to place under the watch band to prop it up. before I had my kit I did use push pins, and a small, light hammer. With the watch closed and latched, pull the excess together under your wrist to make your best guess as to how many links you will have to remove. Then after placing the watch in the previously stated position, first take the push pin and remove the pin from the deployment clasp. Be careful when doing so, because it has springs on both sides, and after pushing it in to slide the connecting side out, it can and will pop out and fly a ways if you don't cover it, and searching for those in a messy carpet is not fun. After the sides are apart, start with one side, looking at the arrows on the inside, if they point down, then you should place your pin, or if you have a tool, like a drywall punch, that is small enough at the end to go into the pin hole, that works well too, if you do use that, though, you want to make sure not to hammer it in too far, or else as it widens you will widen the pin hole, so with the push pin, place it in the pin hole, arrows down, the push pin should be placed above the arrow, to push the pin down in the arrow's direction. With the push pin in place, hammer softly down, making sure you have enough cushion underneath the band. Some watches are easier than others to get the pins out, but if it is a normal, easy one, just tapping downward until you see it moving down, should push the pin out the other side enough to grab it with some small needle nose pliers. Pull the pin out, and set it aside, keeping in mind which way it went in. Now repeat that step with the hole one or two links down, depending on how many you decided you have to remove. Once those are out, you reconnect the separated part of the band with one of the pins. Do the same to the other side, then reconnect the deployment clasp. Usually they have a few holes, for smaller adjustments, so if the watch is now close to fit, just use the clasp to move tighter or more loose if you need, by using the push pin again to move that double pin. If, however, you have problems getting the pins out, or do not have any of the right tools, I would highly recommend finding a watch store near you to have a professional perform this, it is usually less than ten dollars for this procedure. Good luck,

If this watch has a metal watch band then links can be removed to make the band smaller.
You maybe able to fit a new smaller watch band to the watch. A watch/jewellery shop will be able to fix or fit a new watch band.
