SOURCE: remove watch band link
You may have
arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come
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 start to 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.
Don't forget to rate, please.

I know of a couple places in San Antonio and Austin that would be able to custom fit your new band or help you with a repair.
They are located in the malls in either city. They also have a web site.
You can try to contact Invicta for new links and they may have them depending on the age of the model. Look at your owners manual for contact information.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help! You were a extraig help."
It is easy for anyone who did it, but for the first time can be quite tricky. You have to take small screwdriver or pocket knife and insert the blade between strap/band and watch case lug (where the band is attached to watch), then pry it inwards applying some pressure. It will release the spring lug and the band will come off. You may need to repeat this on the other side of band as well. Rate me,plz.

The best way is to take it to a watch shop and have the jewler remove the necessary links abot ten buck job. You can also use Invicta site to have them do the job. Usually watch manufacturers have a need to know site that tells you how to do it, but I don't se one on Invicta.
