Question about Stuhrling Watches

Open Question

Need to remove watch band links on a Stuhrling watch.

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:

SOURCE: I recently received a Tag Heuer Link Calbre 5

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.

How do you remove links from my watch band DKNY?


Instructions
    • 1 Determine the amount of links that need to be removed for the watch to fit on your arm correctly.
    • 2 Find the tiny holes on each link. Most DKNY link wristwatches, such as the 3107 model, have holes at the links near the clasp.
    • 3 Using the screwdriver, gently push the pin holding the link bar on the first link you want to remove. The link bar should come out on the other side.
    • 4 Take the pliers and completely remove the link bar from the band. The link band will still be attached to the clasp. Remove the link with the pliers. Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for each additional link you want to remove.
    • 5 Gather the watch band and and bring the two sides back together. Join the link bar and the clasp together and, using the screwdriver, press the link bar back into the hole completely.

Shorten the length of a Kenneth Cole "New York" watch band


With the watch on your wrist, check to see how many links need to be removed from your watch. Your watch should fit comfortably on your wrist. Remove the extra links with your paper clip or push pin.To remove the links from your watch, press on the small pins with your tool that are holding the links in place. The watch band should now separate allowing the pin to become free, and you can now remove the pins first and then the links one at a time until you have removed the desired amount of links. Reattach the watch band when you are done removing the links. To reattach the watch band to your watch, simply fit the end links into each other. To complete the resizing, use your push pin to re-insert a joining pin.

How do I adjust the length of the bracelet (watch band) for a Casio EF106D-2AV bracelet watch?


  • Select a clean, flat work surface where you can perform your watch band adjustment. Put down a piece of felt to protect the face of your Casio. Turn on a lamp near your workspace to better illuminate the watch components with which you will be working.
  • Lay your Casio face down on the protective felt. Look for the small arrows on the back of some of the watch links; these arrows indicate the removable watch links and the direction their pins should be removed.
  • Locate the pin hole above the arrow on the removable watch links. Insert the tip of a watch pin removal tool, or push pin, into the pin hole. Apply pressure to the link pin, in the direction indicated by the arrow, to free the pin and remove the link. A pair of needle-nose watch or jewelry pliers can be used to help pull out stubborn link pins. Remove as many links as necessary for your watch to fit perfectly.
  • Reserve the links and link pins that you remove from your Casio Edifice watch. Store the removed watch components in a small, clear, plastic zipper bag. These components can be used when repairing or expanding your Casio watch band.
  • WARNING:Casio recommends that customers have their watch bands sized by an authorized Casio watch dealer. Sizing the band of your Casio Edifice yourself may void the manufacturer's warranty on your watch. Contact Casio customer support for more warranty information.

    Remove links


  • Wrap the watch band around your wrist to determine how many links need to be removed for the watch to fit properly.
  • 2 Place the watch face-down on a flat surface.
  • 3 Look on the back of the watch band. You will find an arrow that indicates which direction you should push the pins to remove the links.
  • Find the point at which the extra links need to be removed for your watch to fit your wrist. Using a 1 mm flathead screwdriver (or the edge of one side of a pair of tweezers), push the pins in the direction indicated by the arrows.
  • Finish removing the pins with your pliers.
  • Keep the extra links in case you ever need extra room on your watch band.

    How do you adjust the steel watch band of a Citizen Sky Hawk A-T? JY0000-53E


      Making the Band Shorter
    1. Step 1 Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
    2. Step 2 Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
    3. Step 3 Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
    4. Step 4 Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
    5. Making the Band Longer
    6. Step 1 Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
    7. Step 2 Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
    8. Step 3 Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
    9. Step 4 Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
    10. Step 5 Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.

    Want to fit a watch band. take links out.


    You need a link tool. You can purchase this item on Ebay or watch parts sites. Some have a little track that you put the band on and screw a pin into the pin on the band and it pushes the split pin out and you remove the link. Pay attention to the pins on the band. You need to push out the side with the split pin that looks like a flathead screw. It sometimes is. In most cases it is a pin. When the link is removed you have to connect to the next link and push the pin into the hole again and it shoul go in the direction of the other pins. The pin should go in on the side with the split looking pins. You will need special tools: pin pusher device, a pin block and hammer with pins to hammer out the pins on the band usually. Some or most folks take classes to learn this but you may be handy and figure it out.

    Link removal


    I just got this watch for a gift and was able to remove links myself after doing some research. It really isn't difficult if you are patient, have a little mechanical experience, and have some very basic "tools" available.

    Tools:
    1 push pin like you use on bulletin boards with a plastic head
    1 small hammer like a tack hammer
    1 pair of small pliers. Needle nose pliers would be best but I used diagonal wire cutters (be careful not to cut the link pin)
    1 small block of wood

    Try to pick a well lit table in a room where you will not be interrupted.

    Procedure:
    1. Lay the watch and band sideways on the block of wood so that a pin for the link you would like to remove is just hanging over the edge of the block and pointing down. You need the block to brace the band while you hammer lightly on the pin. Someone to hold the watch in that position would be helpful, but it can be done alone. Only try to remove pins that have an arrow on the back of the band pointing at them. It does not matter with this watch band which way you go with the pin.
    2. Carefully line up the push pin point with the top of the pin.
    3. Slowly, lightly and carefully hammer the plastic side of the push pin so that the pin in the link just emerges from the band on the bottom side enough so that you can grab it with the small pliers.
    4. Slowly and carefully pull the pin straight out with the pliers. You can pick up the watch from the block of wood to get a better grip. Be careful not to bend the pin since you will need to replace at least one of the pins you remove.
    5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 until the band is the correct length. I needed to take out 3 so I removed 2 from one side and 1 from the other side of the clasp.
    6. To fasten the watch back together again, gently insert the pin back in the hole it came from it. You will probably need to use the tack hammer to make the top of the pin flush with the band.

    Casio pathfinder SPF 70-s titanium band adjustment


    I purchased a Casio Pathfinder solar/atomic watch, with compass, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, model 1200T-7WC (titanium).
    Has the titanium band - on this particular band each link is somewhat waveshaped {i.e., there are 2 "arms" from the link making contact with the middle part of the link above (above meaning towards the watch body), and 1 arm fitting between the 2 arms of the next link down). Unlike described in the first solution, the pin is not split, but solid (doesn't look like a slotted screw on 1 end, so the solution at http://www.wikihow.com/Adjust-a-Casio-S-935L-Watch-Band is no help). Here's what to do if you have this band:

    1. Note: before you start, be advised there is a tiny loose 1/8" part (sleeve) that will fall out as you pull the links apart, so work over an appropriate surface to "catch" it. Push pin (from the upper "arrow end) of one of the removeable links (those with the arrows on the backside) out of its hole with a fine poker (I used a 1/32" jeweler's screwdriver, an unbent paperclip would also work, just more likely to bend as you push pin out). This takes some force to do - in my case, after pushing, the pin projected out about 1/2 of it's length, I used needle-nosed pliers to gently pull it out the rest of the way). CAREFUL - once pin is removed and you pull the link away from the one above, a small (1/8") constriction sleeve should fall out of the center arm of the link above. SAVE THIS SLEEVE!

    2. Using the same procedure, remove the pin from the bottom end of the link you're removing. again, SAVE THE SLEEVE.

    3. to rejoin the band once the link is removed, look at the single/middle "arm" of the upper link, looking for the hole where the pin goes through. One side of the hole should be noticeably larger/wider than the other side - this is where you will place the SLEEVE - I used tweezers, or needle-nosed pliers will work - it will drop into hole. Keep this upright so that sleeve doesn't fall out, and slide the 2 arms of the lower link in place around the center arm.

    4. Slide the pin you removed into one of the outer link arm holes - I found it easier if I started from below, pushing it into the center arm - it will stop when it reaches that 1/8" constriction sleeve. I set the extruded end on the pin on a magazine (i.e., slightly padded surface) and then pushed the top side of the band down, forcing the pin through the constriction sleeve and up into the upper arm hole, and Voila, your band is reconnected. The sleeve is important (without the sleeve in place, the pin will simply fall back out).
