How can I shorten the watch band. I've tried pushing the pins, but they don;t seem to move. What is the significance of the arrows on the back of the band segments? Thank you for your help!


The arrows show you the direction to push out the pins.
  • Look for an arrow on the inside of your watch band. The direction the arrow is pointing is the direction the pin should slide out of the band. If your pin is screwed in, you may not see an arrow on the inside of your band.
  • 2 Look on the edge of the watch band for a small round object, the pin. If the pin head is flat, then it needs to be pushed out. If the pin head has a screw driver groove, then it needs to be screwed out. Depending on the type of watch pin you have, take a sharp pointed tool or a tiny screw driver from a hobby kit or watch tool kit and place it on the head of the pin. You should be looking at the end of the pin on the opposite side from where the arrow is pointing.
  • 3 Push on the sharp tool to push the pin out of the watch band. You will need to use force to push the pin out. If your pin is screwed in, gently unscrew the pin until it becomes loose. Remove the pin with your fingertips. Make sure to put the pin in a safe place, because you will need it again when resizing the watch band.

    Cardinal quartz 2107 the watch band is to big for me. how do i make the watch band smaller


    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.

    Resize the watch


    If the band is screws then a small screw driver will do the trick. Make sure you use the right size screw driver so you do not strip the screws.
    If the band is put together with cotter pins you can push out the cotter pins with a small awl or punch. You want to apply pressure to the end of the pin that is not split or appears to be smooth. Usually when you have cotter pins they are arrows or indicators on the band to tell you which way the pins come out. Make sure you put the pins back the same way they came out.

    Wrist band adjustment on a fossil watch


    Just take a tiny little jewelery screw driver small enough to fit in the pin hole and tap it with anything that you can find. Then pull out other end. Look for arrows indicating which way to remove pin and go in that direction Some pins are like a hairpin and have a split at one end. Replace solid end first opposite of arrow direction. If there are arrows in both directions on the same link; like Fossil for instance, that means that it doesn't matter which direction the pins are removed or replaced. They are solid and they can go back either end first. It's easy. To get the pin in all the way I just used the little screw driver and tapped it in. Good luck.

    You really should take it to a jeweler who will have the proper tools to do this without damage to the band or watch, but if you feel you are able and don't mind the chance that you might scratch it.

    ...you will need a very small (the kind you use for your eye glasses) screw driver -flat head type, and a way to tap (a tack hammer) get a cloth to lay down (dark so you can see the small parts) and work on this surface. Look at the small holes on either side of the band and look for a ( - ) this is the end of the pin that must come out first and this is the direction you will force out the pin from the chamber. To force out the pin you must put the head of the very tiny screw driver on the OPPOSITE end and gently tap the screw driver to push the pin out, once you see a small portion of the pin, pull on it with a pair of pliers, but try not so squeeze it for fear of damage. Repeat at the next pin you wish to remove or 2 or 3 depending on how many you want out. Once you have removed all you need to, hold the links from where you have it separated together and push the pin back up inside the chamber **but make sure it is going back in as it came out---the pin will look sort of like a bobby-pin and the Rounded end goes in first** After you push it in by hand, you can use the tack hammer to tap it back down to make it flush, then use the screw driver to get is just below the surface of the band.

    here are the steps SEARCH Watches Jewellery WATCHES JEWELLERY GIFT CENTER FEATURED ITEMS WATCH SPECIALS GIFT CERTIFICATES WHAT'S NEW HOME EN FRANCAIS ORDER TRACKING CURRENCY CONVERTER ABOUT US CONTACT US HELP How to Remove Watch Links The following method outlines how to remove most watch links. If you have any questions, please send us an email at Info@Webjeweller.com 1. Pin Type I 2. Leaf Spring Coupled Type 3.Single Screw Link Type 4.Snap Type 5.Bracelet Sizing Instructions 1. 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.
