mcdevito75 here, That pin is called a spring bar and is used to hold the band to the watch, the pin must be frozen in place on the watch, Best Bet is to try another jewelery shop, in the meantime you can put a drop or 2 of cooking oil on the pin just as it meets the watch this may loosen the remaining portion of pin.
mcdevito75 here, If when you recieved the watch from ebay you had to push the crown in to get it going, we can assume a battery wa sin the watch, thus pushing in the stem (pin) should activate or start the watch. The battery could have gotton loose during shipping, Try pulling out the stem turning the hands as though to set the time, push the stem back in and see if the watch starts, if not, visit a small watch repair shop in your area for possibly a new battery.
mcdevito75 here, hello Diane, I'm afraid your jeweler is correct, and so are you. It is adviseable to pull the stem out to save the battery BUT, only if your not going to wear your watch for a long time, not just over night, here"s the problem!! the quartz mechanism and most of the works are plastic, and plastic while fairly flexable when new, gets hard over time, your pulling the stem to stop the watch everyday or even once a week most likely broke the switch in the mechanism that starts the watch, if so your only option is to replace the movement if you can get one. Pull the stem to stop your watch only if your not going to wear your watch for say 2 weeks toa month.
If it is a metal link band, you can remove a few segments. Segments are connected by split pens. You should see a thinner end and a bigger end; or an arrow on the inside shows where the thinner end should be.
Push the thinner end firmly with a pin or something until the big end pops out the opposite side.Use pliers to remove the pin.
Unfortunately, I do not think this is going to be an easy fix. You may want to take it to a local independent watchmaker. Gucci may sell larger clasps but they may be difficult to find even from them directly. I have looked at the watch you have. It it was solid gold a Jeweler could just make it a touch larger.
Looking at the clasps the options i see is
Have the bangle removed and wear it on a leather strap, Possibly remove the clasp where it says gucci and have the pins laser welded so that the clasp stays in a fixed position similar to a bangle.
i think your rolex watch must be a automatic one. this kind of watch, you don't need to put battery, after in full power, i can last 24-48 hours. if you wear it, it will not stop, but if you don't wear it for long time, it will stop automatic. to adjust the time, you just need to wind the crown counterclockwise, and then pull out the crown, and then you will hear the sound of "click" and then find the right position, and then wind the crown to change the date. please note that the date have to change from small number to big number. after adjust it, you have to screw down the crown to a good water proof capability.
