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.

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!

Is it possible to replace the leather strap on my husbands Armani watch for one with links?


You would have to visit a retailer who sells watch bands and have them show you compatible bands. There are tons of universal ones, but it depends on the width of the connector where the leather band joins to the watch face, and if they have something that will fit that width. It can take them a few moments to change it out, after you've identified what fits.

Can't adjust the wrist band on citizec C651


Look where the band connects to the fold-over clasp. There are several holes on the clasp. Use a plastic headed thumbtack or some other small pointed object to push the pin in and move to desired hole to fit your wrist.
If the longest adjustment is still not big enough you will need to add a link to the band. You can contact Citizen Watch at 800-321-1023 they will send you 3 links at no charge.

I would like to change the leather ******** my tissot t91142851 to a metal bracelet like the model t91148851. where can i purchase such item and how much would it cost?


mcdevito75 here, Best Bet, Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the replacement band. Cost would depend on the band itself, you"d most likely want a band that Tissot makes with their watches to maintain authenticity, I would figure such a band could cost $30.00--- $75.00 Of course you can also contact Tissot if you have the paper work that came with the watch when new, or online at Tissot watches.com

HOW DO I CHANGE THE LEATHER BAND ON THIS WATCH?


The springbars can be retracted using a small tweezers but a springbar tool will make it a much easier job. You can get one from Amazon or ebay for under $5 - search "springbar tool" to find them.

Adjusting the strap


Most clasps have a series of small holes drilled in them, and the end of the strap is held in by a small, spring-loaded bar whose ends are seated in one set of holes. Take the end of a small paperclip, or a large needle, and use it to depress the spring-loaded pin. You can then carefully slide it to another set of holes to make the band smaller. Don't let the ends of the pin slide all the way out of the clasp, or it might shoot off into space.
