SOURCE: removing watch links

Look at both ends of the pin. One will look smooth, the other appears split.
You will need a suitable soft (wooden) support, and a very small dia. punch and a light hammer. The rest of the watch can be protected with a soft cloth.
You place the punch on the end of the pin which looks split, after arranging the watch so the link you are driving the pin from is supported on the edge of the timber. I drill a hole close to the edge of the timber over which I place the pin to be removed. Then by gently tapping the punch with the hammer, the pin should slide down into the hole.
One pin needs to be removed completely, the other can be left in the next link ready to tap back in after the link you wish out is removed.
The important thing is to have a decent punch! The diameter must be such as to fit easily through the pin holes, and the end should be flat. If you cannot make or find a suitable punch, one could be made from something like a darning needle.

SOURCE: remove a link from an armitron ladies watchband model 6P29

More than 90% of Fossil's watches utilize pins that push out.  You can determine whether or not it pushes out by checking if there is an arrow on the back of the link.  If there is an arrow, you should push the link out in the direction of the arrow.  Usually, the link needs to be pushed at least 25% of the way out before it will be loose enough to pull out.  I suggest using pliers and be sure you pull straight out or you risk damaging the pin.  Be sure to watch for a small tube or 'sleeve' that may be in the link.

SOURCE: How to shorten watchband

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.

SOURCE: How do I remove a link to make watchband smaller.

I just got a Citizen Eco-drive watch similar to this one (mine is titanium) for Christmas and took it into the jewelry store today to have it resized. Unfortunately, things didn't go well and it is now on it's way to another jewelers shop for repair. The pins have a short sleeve on them that is supposed to remain inside the links. However when they removed the links, the sleeves came out and they couldn't put them back in. Without the links, the pins do not remain secure in the links. I recommend you take you watch to a jeweler to have it adjusted professionally.

Just got a new Seiko watch but the date won't change automatically


Main cause would be that the date gear teeth have been stripped. This is done by setting the date whilst the hands are trying to change the date themselves (between 10pm and 2am). Always adjust the date with the hands around 6.0clock. You will need to return your watch to where you bought it for repair I'm afraid.

Looking for a replacement watch band for SEIKO SPORTURA HONDA F1 RUBBER BAND/STRAP SNA749P1 Where can I get one and what is the best price for customer in UK?


I've been looking for a replacement for the Seiko SNAE93p1 and have seen the replacement for this in several places. I only remember because it has a red and black band similar to the one on the watch I'm wanting, and I figure that I should get a replacement band when I buy this new watch, as the synthetic bands on Seiko watches tend to break after about 3 years or so.
Watchbands.com has it for $65 I believe. watchbands com
