Question about Watches
Ok, so if you are like me then you probably thought removing the three tiny screws from either side of the strap, and cutting segments of the strap and re-screwing the clasps back was going to do it. Unfortunately one realises that the clasps do not slacken to let the rubber straps out even after the screws are off. The critical point is to get the side pins out which is no simple feat. Getting the pins out releases the clasps and the rubber strap.
To get the pins out, use a wire cutter to cut down a paper clip to a length of 1 .5 cms or so. Hold this with a pair of tweezers along the axis of the pins while you hammer down in the direction of the small arrow inscribed on the metal clasp. With persistence a part of the pin comes out from the other end and you can then pull it out completely with a pair of pliers.
Removing the two pins with release the ends of the rubber straps. cut away segments as required while trying on so that you dont cut too many. Make sure you cut the same number of segments on each side. I had to cut three from each side since I have very thin wrists.
Now put the rubber strap back hold the clasps in position and push the pin back in place. Put the screws back and you should be in business.
It sounds complicated but is quite simple if someone shows you how....which I hope I have been able to.
