Watchmakers are using special tool to release double sided bracelet screws. As you do not have it, the only option is to use two screwdrivers at once - each on other end of the screw.
It will be quite tricky, but you will definetely sucseed after a few attempts.

Rate, please.

Braun bn0095 watch battery replace


"For servicing and repairs, the removal of the access screw on the back of the watch gives access to the stem release catch; after removal of the crown and stem, pressurised air is inserted to blow-out the crystal. Thereafter, the entire movement, together with the dial and hands are easily removed from the top. Experienced watchmakers with the necessary equipment should only perform this operation and the removal of the access-screw by any other persons without the required expertise is highly discouraged."

I want to shorten my watch band on my new Casio MTG900DA-8WC It has a metal band


Hi,
In order to remove the links of your Mtg930 watch you will need a couple of tools . It is recommended to have a watch pin pusher and a spring bar remover tool in order to do so. If you do not you can use a small precision flat head screw driver , the size that is usually used to fix glasses or smaller.

First you need to lay a cloth down at a table . Lay the watch on top of cloth to prevent scratching . flip the watch upside down and have a good at the back of the watch bracelet.

If you look carefully you are going to see notches on the back of each link with an arrow pointing in. This is where the spring bars are accessible and can be pushed in to remove the link.

You need to place your spring bar remover, pin pusher or precision screw drive in the notch against the edge.

Mean while push the opposite side of the watch link up so you can see the most of the spring bar inside the notch.

The spring bar is going to look like a pink with a notch on the the top then gets smaller. As shown below on the left side of the picture. If you are looking at the notch on the spring bar, that is where you need to get our tool ontop of . So you can push down the spring bar.

Once you push down on that notch on the spring bar the link will be able to slip out . Without a spring bar remover it will be more difficult and you will need to be patient as you try to work your flat head screw driver into the notch and be able to push down . Once the pin is push down you need to pull the link from the rest of the bracelet.

Do not be surprised to take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes if you have no experience and not have a spring bar remover.

Once you removed all the links you desire , You will need to put the spring bars back into the links and close the watch bracelet up.

The easiest way is to slip spring bar into middle of link. Bring the other end of the bracelet over so it the bottom covers the other link with the spring bar head out. Push the spring bar down with your tool as you slide the links back together.

How do I remove links?


You will need a very small screwdriver.
Turn the watch on its side. Firmly grasp the bracelet in the area of the link you wish to remove. Insert the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the slot on the screw head. While applying gentel downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screwdriver counter clockwise to loosen the screw. Continue to turn in a counter clockwise motion until you can feel that the screw is completely free turing. Step 2. disassembly2.gif Grasp the end of the screw with the tip of a pair of tweezers and remove the screw from the link. Set the screw in a safe place for reassembly. Step 3. disassembly3.gif Once the screw is removed, the link will come apart. Repeat this for as many links as necessary. If removing an uneven number of links, remove the greater amount of links from the 6:00 side.

How do you remove links from the bracelet?


Without seeing it I can't be specific but there are two ways links are typically connected - pins or screws. If you look at the edge of the bracelet you will see small holes in each link. If yours has screws you will see the slotted heads and you use a suitably sized mini screwdriver to remove a screw. If you don't see a slotted head on one end you have pins that need to be pushed out with a pin pusher. Look for a small arrow to indicate which direction the pin should be pushed as the pin will only come out from one side. Screws are fairly easy to deal with as are some pins. Others are more difficult and are best left to one who has the tools and experience to avoid scratching or otherwise damaging the bracelet. If you have screws it's a good idea to use a drop of threadlock to keep them from loosening up.

I DO NOT KNOW OR EVEN BEGIN TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO


Invicta watches either have screws or push pins. The one I sized yesterday had screws; it was tricky because I had to hold a flat head screwdriver on one side of the pin and then another screwdriver on the either side to unscrew it (this kept it from just spinning without loosening). If it is a push pin (you will know by looking because either a screwdriver will fit in the head or not) then you will need to get a thin steel rod about the width of a paperclip, a hammer, and a block that you can support the watch on. Push pins are pressure set and you just have to tap them out with a hammer by hitting the pin pusher/ steel rod into the pin hole to knock it out. Knock out the pins to the links you want to remove and then use a pin to resecure your watch band together.

Adjusting a casio s940db watchband


  • On the inside of the band, locate the links with the arrow etched on them. The arrows mark the removable links.Lay the watch on its side on a flat surface with the arrows pointing downward. Be sure to leave about 1/2 cm of space between the bottom of each removable link and the flat surface. Using a 1/32" flat head jeweller's screw driver (or metric size 1.0), insert the tip of the screw driver into one side of the removable links' pin holes. You will find that the pins have an end that looks like a screw head. This is misleading - press down very firmly on the other end. Press downward firmly to make the pin pop out the other side. Be careful not to lose it.Remove the pin on the other side of the arrow-marked link.Repeat as necessary to remove half the needed links. You will remove the other half from the other side of the band to maintain equal band length.Flip the watch over so the arrows are pointing upward.Align the holes in the remaining links. Insert the rounded edge of one of the pins into the open link hole. The pin will go in without trouble until the top.Holding the pin in place, carefully flip the watch over again and firmly push the pin fully into placing using the flat surface. The pin will snap into place.Repeat for the other half of the band as necessary.

Pin Type I (Tools: Eyeleteer, Staking stand, Hammer or Pliers) Step 1. Set the watchband onto a staking stand or other appropriate holder. Step 2. Use an eyeleteer to push out the watchband connecting pin toward the arrow. If the pin is too tight, use a hammer to lightly tap out the pin. Step 3. Pull out the connecting pin with a pair of pliers. Step 4. The selected link can be disconnected from the adjoining link. 2. Leaf Spring Coupled Type (Tools: Tweezers or Pliers) Step 1. Use a pair of tweezers to push out the leaf spring of the link in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Remove the leaf spring by using a pair of pliers. Step 3. Other types of leaf springs as illustrated above are also used in leaf Spring Coupled Type Watchbands. Step 4. Disconnect the link from its adjoining link. 3.Single Screw Link Type (Tools: 1-mm Screwdriver or Tweezers) Disassembly Step 1. Turn the watch on its side. Firmly grasp the bracelet in the area of the link you wish to remove. Insert the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the slot on the screw head. While applying gentel downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screwdriver counter clockwise to loosen the screw. Continue to turn in a counter clockwise motion until you can feel that the screw is completely free turing. Step 2. Grasp the end of the screw with the tip of a pair of tweezers and remove the screw from the link. Set the screw in a safe place for reassembly. Step 3. Once the screw is removed, the link will come apart. Repeat this for as many links as necessary. If removing an uneven number of links, remove the greater amount of links from the 6:00 side. Assembly Step 1. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. Assemble the link, and turn the bracelet on its side. Insert the screw into the link either with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. The screw will only go into one side of the link. Step 2. With the bracelet still on its side, securely hold the bracelet between your fingers, and place the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the screw slot on the end of the screw. While using gentle downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screw in a clockwise direction until you feel the screw stop and the top of the screw is just below the edge of the edge of the bracelet. Do not apply more than gentle pressure on the screwdriver as it could cause the screwdriver tip to slip off the screw end, which may scratch the side of the bracelet. Step 3. Once the screw is screwed down in the link as fare as it will go, give the screwdriver one final"twist" to securely tighten the screw. Be careful not to use too much force as the screw head could become damaged. 4.Snap Type (Citizen Sizing Tool) Step 1. Remove the link pine in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Grasp the band on either side of the link from which the pin was removed. Apply gentle upward pressure on the side nearest the case, while applying gentle downward pressure on the clasp side of the band. You will feel mechanism disengage. Step 3. While continuing to apply gentle pressure as outlined in the previous step, gently"rock" the band to completely release the mechainism. Step 4. After releasing the mechanism move the clasp side of the bracelet towards the case to dissemble the links. Step 5. Gently pull the links apart. Repeat the procedure for as many links as need removing. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. 5.Bracelet Sizing Instructions (Tools: Citizen Blue Pin Pusher Link Joint Remover II or Tweezers) Link Components 1) Split Pipe -Two pieces, one at each end of the pin. Generally one split pipe will remain attached to pin during sizing. 2) Cylinder Link - Two pieces, one at each side of the bracelet link. 3) Link Pin - Connects link, cylinders and split pipes together. Step 1. Note the engraved arrow on the backside of the bracelet showing the direction in which the link pin should be pushed and lay the bracelet in the cradle as shown above. Align the pin of the pin pusher with the link pin, being careful to centre it. Once centreed?, apply slight pressure until you feel the pin begin to move and then turn fixture upright as shown in illustration . This slight pressure will keep the pin pusher in alignment with the link pin while the tool is being turned upright. Step 2. With the fixture standing in the upright position, apply even pressure to the pin pusher until the pin drops out. Step 3. Using the tweezers, set the pin/split pipe assembly and cylinder aside. If the cylinder comes off of the pin, reassemble the cylinder and pin. The split pipe for the link pin at this outside end is still on the pin and dose not need to be removed. To reassemble pin and cylinder, insert pin into the hole of the cylinder so that the split pipe rests in the recess of the cylinder. Set aside for use during reassembly of the bracelet.
