SOURCE: Watch Band Adjustment

I just got this watch for a gift and was able to remove links myself after doing some research. It really isn't difficult if you are patient, have a little mechanical experience, and have some very basic "tools" available.

Tools:

  • 1 push pin like you use on bulletin boards with a plastic head
  • 1 small hammer like a tack hammer
  • 1 pair of small pliers. Needle nose pliers would be best but I used diagonal wire cutters (be careful not to cut the link pin)
  • 1 small block of wood

Try to pick a well lit table in a room where you will not be interrupted.

Procedure:
1. Lay the watch and band sideways on the block of wood so that a pin for the link you would like to remove is just hanging over the edge of the block and pointing down. You need the block to brace the band while you hammer lightly on the pin. Someone to hold the watch in that position would be helpful, but it can be done alone. Only try to remove pins that have an arrow on the back of the band pointing at them. It does not matter with this watch band which way you go with the pin.
2. Carefully line up the push pin point with the top of the pin.
3. Slowly, lightly and carefully hammer the plastic side of the push pin so that the pin in the link just emerges from the band on the bottom side enough so that you can grab it with the small pliers.
4. Slowly and carefully pull the pin straight out with the pliers. You can pick up the watch from the block of wood to get a better grip. Be careful not to bend the pin since you will need to replace at least one of the pins you remove.
5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 until the band is the correct length. I needed to take out 3 so I removed 2 from one side and 1 from the other side of the clasp.
6. To fasten the watch back together again, gently insert the pin back in the hole it came from it. You will probably need to use the tack hammer to make the top of the pin flush with the band.

SOURCE: taking back off relic watch

If this is screwback, then there should be grooves for inserting case opener claws. For this yoy need case opener with interchangeable claws. You can buy it on ebay for approx. £7.00.
If the casebask is snap-on, then there shouldn't be any grooves, just small opening (lip) between the caseback and case. This is exact point where the watchmakers knife blade must be inserted and pryed up.
Do not forget to rate, please.

SOURCE: how to set the time on relic watches

I had to go to the Sears counter to fix mine. The sales person had to use TWEEZERS to pull the serrated knob up. He had to really work at it. Once it is pulled up you can twist the knob to set the time and then push the knob back down. What a stupid design.

you'll see the clasp as it look s when open. You need to hold the strap and clasp near one side of the 'join' while pulling the upper part of the strap away from the clasp on the other side.

The clasp on my steel watchband pulls away from the band creating a large gap. it looks bad and catches on things. what do i do?


You need to make sure that if you had the watch band adjusted they did not adjust it at the clasp. When you adjust the watchband links should be removed if you adjust it at the clasp the band keeps pulling open. When you open the clasp fully make sure the pins are on the end holes. If the pins are in the end holes then, the clasp is probably sprung somehow and you will need a new one or have a jeweler or watch repairman fix it! You may also be able to order a new clasp from manufacturer! Hope this helps!!

Tag Heuer "link" woman's watch-- can't open clasp!


You just have to pull with more force. Decent watch brands always make clasps very tight.

Hello, I have received a just bling womans watch as a gift and can't figure out how to put the wrist ********. Just bling/ JB 6210 serial #17861854


Your watch has double folding clasp and it is opening by pulling bracelet exactly in the middle of clasp. Some clasps are very stiff, so, use a bit of force to open it. Here is the link where you can see how the opened clasp looks:

How do you remove links from a Relic watch?


The ladies Relic used two different link systems. The easiest is the easy link system. This is a series of links that are put together with clasps. Simply undo the clasp of the number of links to remove. Its like a series of buckles. The second is a cotter pin or tension pin. You will need to push the pins out from the right end with a narrow punch. To tell the right end of a cotter pin look for the split at one end that makes it look like a screw. The opposite end will be smooth. The smooth end is the end you place your punch on and push the cotter pin out. To tell the right end of the tension pin look for the end that looks the snuggest and possibly has a dimple. The opposite end will look smaller in diameter. The smaller end is where you will place your punch to push out the pin.

Although this can be easy i always recommend going to a qualified watch maker/technician to insure you do not damage the band when removing the link.

How to make a relic watch bracelet a little smaller?


No but if this is a mens watch there might be a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust press the pin in the clasp and move the pin in or out depending on the position of the pin to make loose or tight.
