Question about Watches
I have a fossil PR-5338 watch and would like to adjust the band. On the inside of the band some of the links have small arrow heads pointing to the outside of the band. I have applied pressure and there is not a release. On the outside of the the same links I see what looks like bar pins but they do not press in. I have not use my full strength in either case as I do not want to mark the band. What else should I try?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: trying to shorten the band
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.

SOURCE: Replacement Watch Band
I also have an Adidas watch, but cannot find a replacement.
Unfortunately, very unique for the contours around the body of the watch. Where can I find a replacement watchband?

That means you can take the links out either way. Take a small pin that fits in the hole and lightly tap on the pin. If you find you have problems, add a LITTLE oil in the whole, this should make it easier, though a little messy.
