Question about Stuhrling Watches
1. The band is like porcelain, and the link pins are on those links near the middle next to the clasp. 2. The pins seem to have a indentation on one side. I thought it might need a special tool...but no special tool mentioned...only suggested taking the watch to jeweler. 3. Following some YouTube video, I attempted to push the pin with a blunt end tool that was a size of a pin head...but did not move. Q. Is there a special way to remove these pins that differs from other watches?

OK basically there must be an element that you can push out in the direction of the arrow. Either there is a very thin pin (like a needle) that you can push out with a blunt sewing needle (break the tip), or there is a more sophisticated system as it is shown under the following link:
How to remove links from a watch strap
Posted on Dec 26, 2008
Here is how its done. First remove one end of the clasp (this is much easier on the adjustment side - just depress the pin and remove). Now you can separate the two halves of the first link (actually this is a half-link). Simply grab each half and pull. You may have to do some twisting - do it carefully so that you don't bend the pin. You may have to do some prying - if so, you can use a thin piece of plastic so you don't scratch the link and only pry along the pin so that you don't bend it. Once removed, you can now remove the first full link. Remove it in the same way. Now replace the end half-link and re-attach the clasp. Removing a link from the other side is a little more difficult. The clasp lock is held on with a long pin (slot on one end and screw on the other. One must be held in place while you turn the other. You may need another pair of hands to help you.
If you feel uncomfortable about any of the above, take it to a jeweler - a Tag AD is not necessary but probably best although any jeweler can remove a link if they understand how they are put together. Tell them the link is composed of a right and left half that snap together and they should then see and understand what they need to do.

If i remember correctly, on this watch you need 2 keys to unscrew the bolts from the strap, a single one will just make it rotate freely.
