Question about Tag Heuer Kirium (CL1212.BA0705) Wristwatch
How do i adjust the band
Warning: This is if you don't have any professional watch tools. And I definitely recommend you taking it to a jeweler first.
That being said...
I was able to adjust my band by using a small nail and a pair of needle nose pliers...and Krazy Glue or Super Glue (last warning...you really should take it to pro)...
1. Push the any one of the pins that holds the wristband together until you see it protrude from the other side. While applying pressure to the pin, quickly grab it from the protruding side with the needle nose pliers and pull off the metal cap from the pin.
2. Note you will notice that the pins are actually 2 pieces! They are not screwed together and it makes for a pretty poor design since, one the pins are taken out and then replaced after taking out the appropriate links... they tend to get loose and you will lose that tiny metal cap that holds the pin in place.
3. A professional will have a clamp that is small enough to press these two pieces together. But even that is precarious. I strongly recommend that you carefully apply a drop of crazy glue on each end of the pin, after you are finished.
Final note: I was luck to have spare pins from the links I removed to replace the pin that worked out of its cap. That little sucker is lost to the watch gods. Have fun! Also... you can make final adjustments at the 3 pin location at the wristband release.
Hope this was helpful!

I found the easiest way was to pay a pro to do it, and he had a hard time

You may or may not have
arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come
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.
