SOURCE: Watch Band Adjustment

I think maybe we're all too familiar with the little old watchmaker image, loupe in right eye with tiny tools at hand......The links that have the arrows on them are indeed removable, it just takes more force than you might think. I'm in my office, so I used a pushpin (like for bulletin boards) and yep, it took more force than I thought, but the pin did come out the other side. A little tug with needle nose pliers and out it came. Remove link, repeat as necessary. Good luck

SOURCE: Remove link form Relic Wrist band

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

Hope this works for you!

SOURCE: How do I shorten watch bracelet?

You may 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 start to 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!

SOURCE: I need extra links for my fossil BQ-8792 watch.

Go the Fossil website - http://www.fossil.com. There is a link at the bottom of the page, Customer Care. Clock on that link. On the left there will be a menu item under Product Info that says "ordering links and bands". There is a paragraph titled "Order Links". There is an 800 number to call and they will send you two links just for shipping or if you need more than 2 links, it's $3 per link.

I have a geneva watch with a large stainless steel band and can't seem to get the pins to release can u help


Are you sure they are cotter pins? Sometimes they can be mistaken for screws and vice/versa. If they are cotter pins then you need to have a small "punch" tool and a hammer to tap it out. Be careful though because if its a different kind of pressure pin there can be tiny sleeves that put the pressure onto the band to hold it in place! Might want to take it to a reputable watch repair shop to save you the time and possible frustration of attempting an adjustment yourself!

Does not run. does this watch have a battery in it?


There are two types power sources for watches. Automatic and battery.
Automatic needs to be either wound by the crown (winder on the side) or wound by the movement of the wrist while it is worn.
The battery powered is self explanatory.

Since you didn't include the model it's difficult to say for sure because Relic makes both automatics and battery powered watches. Although I can tell you is most automatics will clearly labeled. If your watch say automatic somewhere on the face or back you need to contact Relic for service because your watch has a 12 year warranty.

To prevent violating your warranty a jeweler should be the one who replaces the battery if it is battery power.
I included the link to Relic watches below for info on the warranty and instructions.
Hope this helps.

Mens Relic watch stopped working after battry change


I suggest that your watch has an oxidized contacts and electricity can not reach the movement.
Do as folloes:
Take out the batttery,
Clean (scrape) all battery related contacts till they are shiny (use hardened steel needle for that),
Use the dust blower to get rid off any tiny dust and dirt particles after cleaning,
Refit the battery back.
Now your watch should work again.
If all written above do not help, then there is a problem with your watch and you will need the help of the watchmaker.
