SOURCE: Watch Too Small

Extra links for your Fossil watch can be ordered by calling Metro Service Center at (800) 842-8621.
For all watches we offer up to two additional links. There is a $4 shipping & handling charge for all link orders. If more than two links are needed, you will be charged $3 for each additional link requested.
Please note that each additional link adds approximately  inch to the watchband. Link quantities are limited and are not guaranteed to be in stock.

SOURCE: remove watch band link

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 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!

Where do I find a extra link to make my band bigger, and how much is it worth?


Most if not all watch repair stores and many jewelry repair stores will have extra links for your watch band. The price will range depending on the band you are trying to match.

Many times the best place to look for extra links is where you orginally purchased the watch, they might have links they are willing to provide for free or a very small nominal charge.

I purchased an ann kleine watch for my wife an the watch band is too small and i would like to have it enlarged


mcdevito75 here, Anne Klien, nice watches, Retirn to the place where you purchased the watch and ask for 2--3 extra links for the band, most Brand watches will give 1--2--3-- extra links for free when asked for, but of course there"s no guarantee of them being free. Or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area to match up the exsisting links or a new band.

mcdevito75 here, Many watches built today are not comming out with replacement Bands (straps, Bracelets) from the factory, the cost of makeing and keeping extra bands on hand is too high, they should at least have a few extra links to replace worn ones. Chances are your warantee is over on the watch and in that case, you"ll have to find another band, Bracelet on your own. Best Bet, visit a small watch repair shop in your area for another bracelet, band, Strap.

Need new watch band for tag heuer watch the one i have is too small. how much is it to replace a watchand


TAG HEUER watch bands are costly. Over here in England they cost from £60 to £250 (depends on type, model, e.t.c.), but can rocket sky high if you have one of expensive models.
I would suggest to add a few links to your existing band. This will be cheaper than to buy completely new band.
Visit your nearest watch repair store and ask how to do that. Watchmaker should be able to order extra links and fit them for you.
If you insist on a new band - ask watchmaker to order it and fit to your watch.

Rate me, please.

Watch band links.


you would have to either have custom links made or buy a whole new band to be made the links pop out by pins and then shortened placed this way back together
but if you dont have extra links buying longer band is your better sollution cause creating a link or 2 to fits can be costly
