How do I remove the pin? I see the hole that I'm supposed to do something to, but I can't figure out what to do. Usually I think it's just a push, but for some reason that isn't working with this model

How can I remove Watch's links?


the links may have spring loaded pins. Use a very fine flat screwdriver and pry inward slightly to pop them out. Some have holes in the side where you can use a straight pin to push them in.

Wrist watch shortening


Look at the inside of the band and there will arrows pointing what direction the to tap the pins out to remove links. Put the watch on a small roll of tape or something similar that keeps the band off the surface you are working on. Gently tap the pin out with a tool that will fit in the pin hole. Remove the pin and determine the number of links to remove. Remove the links and reverse the order in which you took it apart .

Caravelle by bulova 43b17how to adjust Stainless steel bracelet


To remove some links: If you don't have special tool, at least you have to have something really hard and thin (like the pin you use to post notes on the cork board). Put that pin in to the tiny hole between links where the bracelet pin is and then press/push it forward (follow arrow direction as shown on the inside of the bracelet links.) When the bracelet pin comes out at one end, pull it out of that end totally.
After removing one links, connect the two links next to each other by placing the bracelet pin back into the hole and push it to the other end.
To add some links: You have to have spare links and do the same way with the pin to attach more links.

Is there any way to adjust the band without a special tool?


Use a sturdy pin or thumbtack to push out the pin from the little hole on the link.
Make sure to examine the watch and which links have pins. Some watches are designed to have a row of removable links with pins.
Remove one end of the band from the actual watch itself. Then remove links as you see necessary.
You may need to use something a little stout like a butterknife to tap the pins out from the links.
The pin on the watch itself has spring loaded tips, push them in and it should release the watch from the band.

its sound simple enough but you will need to use a bit of force to budge the pin.

you will need
blue tack
punch

Roll up the blue tack push onto flat surface , push the barcelet side on into the blue tack wthe arrows pointing downward.
insert the punch into the hole and tap with hammer.
do this until you have removed enough links then push a pin back into the bracelet and tap home withthe hammer.

Want to fit a watch band. take links out.


You need a link tool. You can purchase this item on Ebay or watch parts sites. Some have a little track that you put the band on and screw a pin into the pin on the band and it pushes the split pin out and you remove the link. Pay attention to the pins on the band. You need to push out the side with the split pin that looks like a flathead screw. It sometimes is. In most cases it is a pin. When the link is removed you have to connect to the next link and push the pin into the hole again and it shoul go in the direction of the other pins. The pin should go in on the side with the split looking pins. You will need special tools: pin pusher device, a pin block and hammer with pins to hammer out the pins on the band usually. Some or most folks take classes to learn this but you may be handy and figure it out.

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.
