SOURCE: how to adjust a movado band

If there are screw on each side- you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. If not- 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. Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead. 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 blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, 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.
Don't forget to rate, please.

No but if this is a mens watch there might be a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust press the pin in the clasp and move the pin in or out depending on the position of the pin to make loose or tight.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the

  • Select a clean, flat work surface where you can perform your watch band adjustment. Put down a piece of felt to protect the face of your Casio. Turn on a lamp near your workspace to better illuminate the watch components with which you will be working.
  • Lay your Casio face down on the protective felt. Look for the small arrows on the back of some of the watch links; these arrows indicate the removable watch links and the direction their pins should be removed.
  • Locate the pin hole above the arrow on the removable watch links. Insert the tip of a watch pin removal tool, or push pin, into the pin hole. Apply pressure to the link pin, in the direction indicated by the arrow, to free the pin and remove the link. A pair of needle-nose watch or jewelry pliers can be used to help pull out stubborn link pins. Remove as many links as necessary for your watch to fit perfectly.
  • Reserve the links and link pins that you remove from your Casio Edifice watch. Store the removed watch components in a small, clear, plastic zipper bag. These components can be used when repairing or expanding your Casio watch band.
  • WARNING:Casio recommends that customers have their watch bands sized by an authorized Casio watch dealer. Sizing the band of your Casio Edifice yourself may void the manufacturer's warranty on your watch. Contact Casio customer support for more warranty information.

    Self-adjusting bands usually feature easy to remove links that simply snap out. They usually look just like the main clasp or blend in with the band. Simply locate these links and undo the closures to remove or add them.

    How do you adjust the steel watch band of a Citizen Sky Hawk A-T? JY0000-53E


      Making the Band Shorter
    1. Step 1 Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
    2. Step 2 Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
    3. Step 3 Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
    4. Step 4 Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
    5. Making the Band Longer
    6. Step 1 Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
    7. Step 2 Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
    8. Step 3 Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
    9. Step 4 Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
    10. Step 5 Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.

    How do you remove a link without using any tools


    You don't say much in your question ...

    So ... I'm guessing ...

    I'm guessing you have a watch with a expansion band that has removable links.

    I'm also guessing it has a snap fastener and you have already made your band smaller through adjusting that part of the bracelet.

    I'm guessing that yours is of a similar design to several I have owned and/or adjusted for others.

    I'm guessing you have a paper clip in your home or office and ...

    I am also guessing you never thought of a paper clip as a tool.

    Straighten one leg of the paper clikp and pop out the little keeper on two of those links, reattach the loose ends for a smaller bracelet. There should be a little arrow pointing in the direction you should push the little clip/keeper.

    I hope this helps you make your bracelet the size you need it to be.

    On most brands, there are pins that form hinges for the links of strap. You need to push them out to remove links. Usually you would find arrows marked from inside of the metal bracelet which show you the direction in which to remove the pins. You can remove it if you have a small watch maker's screwdriver but you have to be careful. or get one of these ..

    How to remove link from band


    The segments of your bracelet are held together with friction pins which have to be removed first in order to adjust it. This is a relatively complicated task requiring experience and a special tool to remove and return the pins and bushings back correctly without compromising the bracelet strength.
    I recommend taking your watch to an Omega authorised dealer for adjustment while you wait.
