You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
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.
Job done!

My timex indiglo watch's expansion band is too large. How can I remove links to make it smaller.


mcdevito75 here, Removeing the tiny pins to remove links is fairly easy, replaceing them is the hard part, for this you"d need a Link remover tool, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, the $10--15.00 cost will equal your Time, effort and tool you"d need. Don"t forget to hold onto the links removed from the band in case you need them again.

Adjusting the watch band


Without knowing the type of band you have, I can only say that the links in an expand band can be removed to make it smaller. Now adding more links would require that one would need obtain compatible links.

I can not get the watch band to fit my wrist. How do i shorten the band


If it is a metal band there are links in the side of teh band that you can remove. If all teh removable links are gone you may need to change the band into a smaller one. And there are little pins by the watch you can do that as well. I recommend taking to a jewelry repair shop. Some jewelry store do repairs as well, and may have parts you need for this as well as the tools.

Trying to shorten the band on a fossil watch. removable links have arrows which point outward on both sides of the link.


You need a small, (smaller than the pin hole) punch to force the pins out of the band. Since the arrows point in both directions you can push from either direction. Push enough of the pin out to be able to grasp it with a pair of small pliers and remove it. Do that on both sides of the link, replace the extra with a small hammer and you're done.

Aquaswiss Trax watch band adjustment


VSNDESIGNS SAYS:

You should first try to adjust the band at the Clasp first. The clasp has three holes that you could easily move your band up or down into. If you need to remove one or more of the links, try the following.
