Hi, I would recommend either taking to a jeweler at your local mall who usually do it for free. If your like me and have a decent size watch collection, I would suggest to invest in a watch resizing kit.
Thank you for contacting FIxYa.<br />
I suggest you take your watch to a reputable local jeweler for sizing. Expect to pay a nominal fee (around $5) for this service. Do not attempt to size your own watch! You may damage or scratch the watch and bracelet. The liability is yours.<br />
If you still decide to do, follow instructions given here:<br />

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.
I have two tag 6000. one of the watch bands broke and I found a great fix. look on ebay for a rubber band called for rolex presidents. it fits the tag and the ribbing goes perfectly with the watch style. a easy and inexpensive fix, although you loose the stainless band...good luck
Hello! I just went through the same thing. If you got the watch new, you can look in the box to find "mini" or "half" links included with the watch. There is no fine adjustment on the Link, but you can replace the larger links with the "mini" links to get the size closer. They are not quite half size, more like 65% of a regular link. So if you add one "mini" link and the watch is too big, you can then replace a regular link with a "mini" link to keep adjusting the size. I went to a dealer (Jared does this, as does Torneau...you talked to the wrong person) and it took about 5 minutes and was $15.
Hope this helps.
Hi. I just received the Tag Heuer Indy 500 with steel bracelet today for christmas from my wife. I'm a smaller man and had to take out 3 links. I'd never sell this watch so if you would like them...just write.
