SOURCE: shorten watchband

I have a similar watch and removing the links are not easy. There are pins in certain links that have arrows on the inside of the band. I used a push pin to remove the pins in the direction of the arrows. Snip the end of the push pin with a wire cutter or pliers so that it fits into the hole and tap the top of the push pin with a small hammer until the other end of the pin is exposed enough to extract it with a set of needle nosed pliers. Repeat for other side of link. When the pin is extracted, twist the link inward and it should snap out.
Remove the link and reverse the procedure, placing the pin in the opposite direction as it was extracted. You may have to tap it gently with the push pin and hammer to get it to go into the holes flush.
It takes a little while and some patience, but if you can get someone to hold the band for you while you tap the pin, it will be easier. Also, if you remove the spring loaded pin from the band fastener so the band can be laid out straight, it will also be easier. Good luck!

Look at that link, a very clear step-by-step explanation with pictures. Works for Casio, maybe also for your watch.

SOURCE: How do I shorten the watchband to fit my wrist?

If you turn the band inside out...and stretch it...you will see either 2 or 4 small tabs per section. Use a jewelers screwdriver to lift up each tab per section and slide that section out. Now it will be easy to take other sections out as you won't have to maintain pressure on the band. Reassembly is reverse order.

It all depends on the style of the band.
Go to where the links are all the same size, not tapered at all.
If you have a stretch band, along the edge, unbend the flaps that hold what look liks tiny staples. Pull out what you need removed and put the remailing pieces together.
If you have a non-stretch band, grab a SMALL paperclip about 1/8" from the end. Along the edge of the band you will see the pins that hold it together. Have someone hold the band with the bottom edge of the pin you are removing, over an opening. Between 2 hardback books wirks great. Tap the pliers to drive the pin partially out. Pull it out and do the same to remove as many links as needed. Put the pins back in, in the same direction they came out, from the same side they came out.

How does it get sized?


You can usually have your local watch shop to shorten watchbands but if they cannot do it then you could contact Michele watches.

You could then discuss any problem you have with them.
Insert "www.michele.com/" into your search engine, at the bottom of the page on the left is a "contact us" link. Click on this for info.
