SOURCE: How to remove links from Fossil metal band?

I've had a Fossil before, but forgot how easy it is. Thanks for the refresher.

SOURCE: I need to know how

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.

SOURCE: Trouble sizing Fossil Watch CH-2506

Those arrows inside of the watch band are showing direction for pins or clips to come out. If you have two arrows in opposite directions on one link, that means there are two pins or clips and each one must be extracted from arrow pointing side.
If there is only one arrow on the link- there is only one clip or pin and must be extracted the arrow pointing way.
Some watch bands are held together by very specificly made clips or pins. In this case you will need a special tool to extract them.

SOURCE: remove links from fossil metal band

You may have arrows inside bracelet.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!

Would you happen to have a watch band pin (link that attaches band directly to the watch casing) for a Fossil Blue Model AM-3515? Great difficulty locating one of these. Thanks for any help on this.


mcdevito75 here, This pin is called a spring bar, while I have many of these I would need the watch to match up the spring bar with the caseing. Best Bet, see a small watch repair shop in your area. Approx. Cost, $5.00 plus install.

You can get links from Fossil.

Go to "fossil.com" and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on "customer care" and under "product info" you will see "ordering links and bands".

Click on this.

If you are not sure how to fit the new links and they do not send you any instructions, take your watch to a watch shop who will fit them for you.
