I need to adjust my Style&Co SC1325 watchband, what can I do?


Your picture clearly shows the small arrows (on the inside of the band) the way the watch band pins need to be removed. You'll need a very small needle and a small hammer to drive the pins out in the direction of the arrows. Remove links evenly on both sides so the clasp is centered.

Once you fell you have removed enough links to fit your wrist, drive the pins back in reverse direction from the arrows, and set them smooth to the touch. If you can push the pins in to the hole just beneath flush, with your needle and hammer, it'll keep the pin from snagging your sweaters.

If all else fails most jewelry stores charge less than $10 to remove links. Have fun. It's not hard.

How do you remove links from a casio watch strap S-1183DV on watch WV-59DU ?


Hi,

You will need to hold the watch firmly in your hand, with the side pointing up. Make sure that you can grip it firmly. If you have trouble holding onto the watch, place it on a stable surface. Make sure that the side is facing toward the ceiling and locate a connecting pin. There will be a connecting pin on each link of the watch band. Select a link, and hold the eyeleteer over the connecting pin for that link. Carefully place the eyeleteer onto the connecting pin. Push gently but firmly until the connecting pin slides partially out the other side. Occasionally, the pin will be difficult to push through the slot. If this is the case, gently tap it though with a standard hammer. Using a pair of pliers, pull on the connecting pin carefully until it slides out. Keep a firm grip on the watch band so that the links do not come apart before you are ready for them to. Separate the Casio watch band. Repeat this process with additional links until the watch band is as small as you would like it to be. Reconnect the band by tapping or pushing a connecting pin into the band where it is disconnected.

I have a benrus watch that has a bracelet that does not have the usual pins with arrows to remove links. they links have arrows but no pins . instead the ends look like staples with only the flat end...


I had a watch with a strap that sounds like the one you describe.

The "pins" were indeed staple shaped and were removed by gripping them with a long nosed pair of pliers and pulling them out one one side and then the other.

Take care when replacing them as they might bend.

How do i get a replacement pin that goes on the clasp that locks and unlocks the watch band. Mine fell out and it wont stay closed now


mcdevito75 here, Your best bet is to visit a small watch repir shop in your area, I believe you"d need a spring bar type pin in the clasp and without the watch inhand sizeing the pin would be difficult.

How do you adjust the band on the watch?


For removing or adding links firstly you will have to remove bracelet pins or screws. In case if there are screw on each side of bracelet - you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. In case if there are pins - read the rest:
You may or may not 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 (screw ends and pin end may look similar). Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and try to unscrew one. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead of screws. 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 punches check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the pin end is coming out long enough - grab it with pliers and 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 or adding extra link(s) 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! If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

My son received a merona watch and we cannot figure out how to remove the extra links to make it so it will fit him. Can someone help?


i have a merona watch too. i found wire brads in my garage, then pounded out the pins partway. then i put the end of the pin that was sticking out into a vice grip and pulled the pins out. then remove the link, and use a small hammer to put it back in place. it might take a while, but it works.

How to remove links?


Assuming this is NOT an expansion band, there are generally two different types of links: one is a straight pin or cotter pin, the other is an "L" shaped pin. Look at the side of the band. If there is a small round hole it's either a pin or cotter pin. On the inside of the band, there is quite often an arrow that indicates the direction you need to pump the pin to remove it. I have several different tools for removing pins, but you don't need to use a special tool if you're patient and careful. You can use a stiff wire and gently hammer on the end of the pin to push it out. You will need an open area above the head of the pin so it has someplace to go when it clears the band. With the head of the pin sticking out, grip with a pair of pliers and pull. Same process with a cotter pin. Installation is the reverse of removal only you are travelling against the arrow. Once you have the pin almost all of the way in, I pick up the watch and press the head of the pin against the corner of my workbench to push it in the rest of the way. For the "L" shaped pins, they are trickier. I made a special tool for that, but you aren't going to want to do that. If you have an awl, you can brace the edge of the band against a soft metal such as aluminum so it won't scratch. On the inside of the band, you will find the arrows showing the direction you need to go to remove the pin. Youwill also see a small hole along the outer edge of the band. Put the tip of the awl at a low angle against a protrusion that you can see in the hole. Gently tap the awl in the direction of the arrow. When youcan see enough of the pin sticking out the side of the band, you can grip it with a pair of pliers and pull it out the rest of the way. Installation is the reverse of removal. Again, use something to push the head of the pin against.
