SOURCE: need to resize watch braclet on a mens invicta watch

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.

SOURCE: can't set day and date on cote d' azur watch

Just received the watch from someone from a cruise.
I agree that the little dials can't move and the top and bottom buttons do nothing.
Thing is, there was no instructions with the watch, therefore when purchasing the watch
it is not a scam unless you ask the seller to show you how to set the times and then you would find out they are fake.
Pretty sneaky selling tacktic.

When I read the original question, the heading said "Boluva", I don't think that this is the case and I haven't been able to find a makers' web site for Cote d'Zure watches.

I suggest the next step is to take it to a jewelers (if you think it is worth spending some money on it), to ask them to look at it to find out why it isn't working.

I had a similar experience some time ago and I had it cleaned and it ran for many years.

I purchased a Cote d' Azur watch & necklace set on a cruise ship recently, and can't seem to set the other three functions on the watch. There is only one pin but there are three addtional...


One of the dials should be seconds so you won't be setting that, the other two should be day and date, when you pull the stem and crown all the way out you can set the time there is a halfway setting ( pull the stem halfway out) if you turn one way it's the day of the week the other way is the date. Hope this helps! Also what appears to be a second hand on the dial a lot of times is actually a stopwatch.

There were no directions with our Cote d' Azur watch. Where can we get any directions.


does your watch has a strap with N,E,S, W printed on it? Normally, it is located on the bottom side of your watch. If you tilt your watch, the direction will be pointed towards that direction. Consult Cote d\'Azur if you have that on your watch...

How do I set the day on a Cote d' Azur watch I purchased on a Royal Carribbean Cruise


Are you shure you CAN set the date? Most of these watches are fake. I got one at a NCL cruise. For its price, it's fake. So it is not fully functionally. It only shows the time. The date mark is not real on my watch

I bought a webner swiss military standard issue watch with a braclet deployment band. My wrist is tiny....how do I adjust the size?


Take the watch to a watch shop and ask them to shorten it for you. (doing it yourself can be difficult as special tools i.e very thin probes, may be required.

I bought a cote d'azur watch and didn't comne withinstructions


if you take this watch apart and look at the backside, the side buttons are not connected. and there are NO workings for the "neet" time, date and hr hands, so the ONLY setting the watch has is the time. pop the back off and see for yourself, you can also buy these watches on EBAY for 5.00
good luck
