CLICK HERE to visit the manufacturers website and download your manual.

You need part Number IPM25 -
If your watch band needs adjusting, this is the tool for you. This handy pin remover tool will make removing and adding links to your watch band a snap. It can be used on most standard sized metal bracelets with pins or double barrel pins. The large handle makes it easy to use.

You dont NEED this special tool to remove the links on Invicta watches... any generic link removal tool will work - this one just happens to have the Invicta name on it.

The jeweler you purchased from (or any one in your area) has the equipment necessary, and should not charge anything.

$19.95USD HERE for the "Invicta model".
$8.95UDS HERE for the "Generic" tool.

Look for a kit that includes extra pins in case you break one!!

Follow these instructions to avoid breaking or bending the pin

1. The center area of the pin removal tool can be released to allow you to get vertical alignment on the target band pin.

2. You can move the band back and forth in the middle section to line up the pin with the band arrows for horizontal alignment.

3. Once it's aligned, the pin can be removed by placing your band in the center and gently turning the screw handle till the pin is pushed through.

4. The repair kit includes some standard pliers to help you remove or place pins. There are also tweezers to help with small parts. In my opinion neither of these are really necessary and I've never used them when resizing watch bands. Just work slowly and you can push the pins most of the way through without additional tools.

5. Once you have to reset the pin to the new band link, simply reverse the direction of the band in the resizing tool before slowly screwing the pin back into place. Make sure the band pin is turned the right direction.

With all this in mind, only opt for that kit if the sale price makes it close to the price of the tool alone. Otherwise, it's not worth the extra cash. Also, you may be able to buy this tool for half this price including extra pins. Just make sure if you use a third party to avoid those with excessive shipping costs.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

    On invicta watches you need a special plastic tool.

    I quote a testimonial:
    "Ahh, the Invicta. If you're like me, you pulled it off a list of the best (cheap) watches in the world,
    ordered it from some fly-by night Internet retailer, and now have a
    giant metal bangle hanging from your scrawny wrist. I spent about an
    hour trying to push the pins out with all sorts of household objects:
    paperclips, tiny screwdrivers, awls, ice picks, telekinesis, obscene
    words and gestures. Nothing worked. A little more research revealed
    that most of the crazy internet watch people (no offense intended,
    CIWP) also invest heavily in watch-related tools, and it makes sense
    for them, since they're crazy and have different watches for different
    moods and shades of light. They're constantly buying, selling, and
    trading watches, and (I assume) adjusting them to fit. You _could_ buy
    the little plastic tool that one would use for the job, or for the same
    price, you could visit the little man with the thick accent who works
    in the back of your local jeweler's, and he'll chuckle to himself and
    adjust your watch.



    I ended up taking the metal bracelet off my Invicta 8926, and replacing it with a rubber bracelet, which I like a lot better. Turns out I'm not a metal bracelet person."

    from Adjusting watch bracelet.

    You need to buy the special sizing tool below to do the job on Invicta watches.

    The alternative is having it done at a local shop for $10.

    Here is the tool for $15:

How can i take the back off the invicta sea spider model no. 5915 so i can change the battery?


Hi I love my Invicta watches also. My wife is telling me that collection is close to how many shoes she has LOL. You will need a special tool the tool has two adjustable prongs so it will fit a Rolex and any other screw on type watch. Normally they come in a set of watch tools. I would suggest eBay, you can get a kit that not only will open any back on any watch but you will get tools for removing the pins in the band. There is also a unique tool to help you put the spring pin in that holds the band to the watch. One word of caution when searching on eBay look to see where the seller is. If it is China I would find one here in the States. I hope this will help you
Have a great day.

How to remove links from Invicta 0132 wildflower


Normally on this type of Invicta you would use a slim punch to push out the little pins at each end of the link section you want to remove, then reattach the band using one of the removed pins.

In some cases one end of a pin will be slightly wider than the other so that the pin is meant to be removed in one particular direction. If you can't tell any difference, the pin will probably come out either way. You may use a small hammer to tap the pin back in if needed but don't scratch your band.

How to remove links from invicta sea spider polyurethane bracelet


You should use two extremely small flat head screw drivers to remove links on Invicta polyurethane watch bands. The smaller pens on the polyurethane watch bands have a notched cap (tiny screws) on each end .You must use one screw driver to hold the pen cap (screw) steady and the other screw driver to turn the cap (screw) counter clockwise. You only have to remove one notched cap (screw). These caps (screws) are very small and you should be careful not to lose them. Once you removed the cap (screws) you can use a small screw driver or paper clip to push the pens through the links. You should repeat this til you remove the desired links.

Adjust bracelet on sea spider?


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 /> <a href="http://www.webwatches.co.uk/how_to.htm" target="_blank">http://www.webwatches.co.uk/how_to.htm</a><br /> Best wishes.

How do I remove pins to size an Invicta Sea Spider model #0140


mcdevito75 here, Aren"t the spring bars (pins) built into Invictas Strap?? Look on the back of the Strap real close to where ot attches to the watch, see a little tab you can move with your fimger, this tab should compress the spring bar (pin) and allow you to remove the strap.

Go to the "invicta.com" web site.

Put your cursor over "collections" and select "Instruction manual".

There appears to be only one manual covering all their watches.
