You may 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,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!

The links most likely need a tool that will push the pins out so you can adjust the bracelet. This can be easily done by any jeweler or watch store. You can also order these types of tools online to do it yourself at home. Please do not attempt to remove links without the proper tools as you will not be able to remove them and you will also damage both the bracelet and the pins.

Acutally nowhere. You have to shop around for all the jewellers or watchmakers shops to find it.
You can visit GUCCI wbsite as well, but it is very costly.
Please, rate me (if not happy- do not rate at all).

SOURCE: How do I open my gucci watch to change batteries?

Get a #0 1.6mm precision Phillps screwdriver (these are brittle) or similarly strong, thin piece of steel.

Hold the watch upside-down across your index finger while gripping the straps tightly between your index finger and thumb on one side, and index finger and middle finger on the other (ie. squeeze the strap around your index finger).

On the underside of the watch, stick the tip of the screwdriver under a square slot where the watchband is connected at an angle perpendicular to the strap. Firmly pry upwards on the cover on one side, then the other, until the cover pops off.

The battery is a Renata 379.

To put the cover back on, align the square slots precisely with the ends of the straps (keep these out straight), then firmly push the cover straight down until it "snaps" shut.

SOURCE: How to Open a Gucci watch

Most watches are either screwed on and typically have a series of small notches around the circumference of the case back. A special tool is generally called for. Otherwise they are "snap back" . These are simply pressed on. To remove you can carefully use a regular knife in the absence of a "case knife". There is usually a small gap/groove/notch area to insert the balde and lift the back off.

mcdevito75 here, Best Bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can authenticate your Gucci watch for you.

If your not familiar with watches, specially Gucci an expensive watch let a small watch repair shop remove the back cover and give you all info needed to authenticate the watch.
