I just recieved my new watch, I do not understand how this watch closes or clasps, so I cannot adjust to size. it is 109179wtcl. In the manual I think it is a metal insert but the picture does not help me....

I have had a couple of watches that have clasps like that. Essentially it folds into itself, if you look at the metal part that does not fit the rest of the band you will notice some rectangular openings and two little projections.
Now, to close it you have to pull each side of the bands in, the metal bar should also fold a little as well, then each side should clasp.
I hope this image helps. chengeaj.jpg
I hope this helps, also to get back open you should just be able to pull it open, it will should have no ill-effect on the watch. I really hope this helps.

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?

Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.

But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
  • Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
  • Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
  • Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
  • Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
  • Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.

How do you open the latch on a Rolex datejust watch

If I understand right, by the latch you mean bracelet clasp. You just pull it by the crown. Clasps on ROLEX watches can be very tight, so, have to pull it with appropriate force. Rate me, plz.

Cannot open clasp prestige replica rolex

1)Unscrew the crown until it pops out, the same way you would unscrew the crown to change the time on the watch.
2)Place the watch case opener in the notches around the outside of the back of the watch case. You have to use a watch case opener made for Rolex watches to open the watch. Once the case opener is in place, twist it and the back will pop open.
3)Use a mini screwdriver to loosen a tiny screw on the inside of the watch located near the stem. You do not need to unscrew fully--only loosen it.
4)Pull the crown straight out. The crown and stem should come out easily.
To open the back of the watch
1)Purchase a Rolex watch back opener set, if you do not already have one. This set is able to open and close any size of Rolex case.
2)Match the size of your Rolex case with the same size of grooved metal die from the tool set.
3)Put the metal die on the grooves on the back of the watch case.
4)Turn the die to remove the case.
5)Remove the rubber gasket.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

How to shorten band on Rolex submariner

on mine I removed a couple links using a jeweler's screwdriver(flat-blade). Look for the screws in a hole along the narrow edge of the links nearest to the clasp. Use care in removing/replacing these screws, you do not want to break or strip them using excessive force. If you need to remove more than one link, take additional links from the opposite side of the clasp, so the clasp stays centered on your wrist.

How to adjust leather rolex watch band

On the clasp of the watch. There are small holes ware the spring bar sits.
More current models do not have holes that go all the way through on the buckle but the spring bar still sits in between. With a small screw driver press in tward the middle of the strap ware the spring bar sits at the end of the leather strap. Pop out the strap and the spring bar and then place it into the slot that fits.
