SOURCE: Watch band resizing
This band requires a pair of band pliers to pull out a U shaped tab that connect the two links. Sometimes you can get a small screw driver in to start the tab coming out and pull it the rest of the way out with a pair of pliers. The tab is located in the middle. You'll note that, if you look at the side of the band, there are three layers of metal. The tab is in the middle and slides out. If you look at the inside of the band, the side that would be on your wrist, you will see the slot that the watch plier would fit into to start sliding the tab out.
* I do not recommend this repair for the layperson. I suggest seeing a watch maker/technician.

If you look carefully on the inner side of expandable bands, there's usually the removable links of the band near one or both ends of the band.
These usually have arrows indicating which direction the locking pin/tab slides to unlock and allow removal.
If you're careful, you can unlock them and remove one or two by using a small screwdriver. A very inexpensive alternative is to find a local watch repair shop and have them resize if for you while you wait. They've got the mini-tools and it's usually very reasonable (around here, there's a couple chain grocery stores that have watch repair kiosks inside..great alternative and cheap).

Could be a number of different ways. Some newer watches have multiple clasps that make it easier for you to adjust it yourself. Check the bottom of the band for extra clasps.
Without seeing the watch I have no idea what type of links you have. I suggest taking it to a reputable watch repair shop and have them adjust it for you! It will save you the frustration of having to search for a small screw or pin if it should fall on the floor!

I suggest you take it to a watch shop (decide how much shorter you need it before you go - or take mother and watch to the shop).
It is very quickly done when you know what you are doing and have the tools!
