Use a sturdy pin or thumbtack to push out the pin from the little hole on the link.
Make sure to examine the watch and which links have pins. Some watches are designed to have a row of removable links with pins.
Remove one end of the band from the actual watch itself. Then remove links as you see necessary.
You may need to use something a little stout like a butterknife to tap the pins out from the links.
The pin on the watch itself has spring loaded tips, push them in and it should release the watch from the band.

SOURCE: 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.

Luminox watch band adjustment


Those type of bands take a special push pin to push out the pins and can be rather tricky. My best advice would be to take to a local jeweler/watch repair as they have the best tools to do it and it normally is less the $15 to do and worth it.
Hope this helps.

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.

Replacing watch band on pathfinder pas410. can't get pins out to replace band.


Watchmakers use special tool to release spring bars, but it is possible to release them in home conditions. Place your watch on flat surface face down. Using pocket knife insert the blade between band and the watch lug where the spring bar (pin) end is and using lever action push spring bar end inwards. This should release the band from the watch. If all this does not work, then your watch band is attached with friction fitted pins and you will need watchmakers help, as without special pin removing tool it is not possible to remove friction fitted pins.

Rate me, plz.

Watch strap adjust


Not all watch bands are adjustable. If yours is, you will see the links are connected with tiny pins. Any store that sells watches will have the tool to remove links. Some watches require a special tool, those need to be adjusted at a store that sells that brand.
