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 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!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

Nesesito new band


Go to a jewelry shop that sells watches/watch accessories, or a watch kiosk at your local mall. Either of these places should have multiple bands that will work on your time piece. If you want a specific band (as in one identical to the one that came with your watch), you'll need to contact Invicta for that. Invicta Service Center

How do i shorten a metal watch band i have a casio 708


Look for removable pins in the band to allow removing one link at a time until it fits ok.

Adjusting band on Invicta 4901


I was having the same problem with mine. Even though the band has arrows, those really are screws in the band. Two really small screwdrivers and you can take out the unneeded links. They are in there really tight, so expect some resistance until they pop loose, after that its easy.

I DO NOT KNOW OR EVEN BEGIN TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO


Invicta watches either have screws or push pins. The one I sized yesterday had screws; it was tricky because I had to hold a flat head screwdriver on one side of the pin and then another screwdriver on the either side to unscrew it (this kept it from just spinning without loosening). If it is a push pin (you will know by looking because either a screwdriver will fit in the head or not) then you will need to get a thin steel rod about the width of a paperclip, a hammer, and a block that you can support the watch on. Push pins are pressure set and you just have to tap them out with a hammer by hitting the pin pusher/ steel rod into the pin hole to knock it out. Knock out the pins to the links you want to remove and then use a pin to resecure your watch band together.

My invicta stainless steel band has two bent pins and I was told to send back to invicta repair. Is the repair of watch band more expensive than a new watch band and who can put on new band.


Most watch pins go for an average of 5 to 10 dollars per pin. If the band is in good condition there is no need to replace it. Most invicta metal bands can retail from 35 dollars and up. We are located in the Holyoke Mall in Holyoke MA
