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

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.
If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.
Hope this works for you!

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.

It takes special tools. Go have a jeweler do it. It will only take him/her a couple minutes and often they wont even charge for it (hoping to win you as a future customer). And if they do charge, it would only be a couple skins.
