Re: Need To Takeout a Link in Band
I know little about this watch, but generally there is an arrow on the inside of the band, you can use a small screwdriver to push on the side, or perhaps in a small hole on the inside of the band to force the link pin/s out in the direction of the arrow.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

take it to a jeweler and they will send it to casio to remove a link. The clip may have movable anchoring points . You need a pin to push in the pins inside the link on both sides. then move the link and re anchor the band under the clip.
You will need to hold the watch firmly in your hand, with the side pointing up. Make sure
that you can grip it firmly. If you have trouble holding onto the
watch, place it on a stable surface. Make sure that the side is facing
toward the ceiling and locate a connecting pin. There will be a
connecting pin on each link of the watch band. Select a link, and hold
the eyeleteer over the connecting pin for that link. Carefully place the eyeleteer onto the connecting pin. Push gently but
firmly until the connecting pin slides partially out the other side.
Occasionally, the pin will be difficult to push through the slot. If
this is the case, gently tap it though with a standard hammer. Using a pair of pliers, pull on the connecting pin carefully until it
slides out. Keep a firm grip on the watch band so that the links do not
come apart before you are ready for them to. Separate the Casio watch band. Repeat this process with additional links
until the watch band is as small as you would like it to be. Reconnect
the band by tapping or pushing a connecting pin into the band where it
Hi, sizing the bracelet on your ceramic watch may void its warranty, making it ineligible to receive service from the manufacturer. If you want to keep your watch covered under warranty, contact your watch manufacturer for information on their customer repair service.
If you want to remove it yourself, you need a watch pin removal tool. You can use a watch pin removal tool to remove the link pins that secure the clasp pieces to your ceramic watch band.
But if you don't have a watch pin removal, follow the instruction below........
Find a clean, flat, well-lit work surface where you can size the bracelet of your ceramic watch. For best results, spread a soft optical cloth over your work surface and perform your repair on top of the cloth. The cloth will help prevent you from losing any small watch components, like link pins, that may be freed during repair.
Wrap the ceramic watch band around your wrist and count how many links overlap. Use this as a guideline for how many links should be removed. Note that the actual number of links to be removed may differ slightly from the original estimate. Remove excess links from your watch band one at a time to make sure that you don't end up accidentally making the band too short.
Remove the excess watch links from the ends of the band with the attached clasp pieces. Look between the removable ceramic watch links to locate the silicone connector pieces that join the links. Use a pair of small, pointed scissors to make a cut between the link and the silicone connector, this will free the excess links. Cut on the side of the link that faces the watch clasp. Repeat the process on the other side of the ceramic watch band.
Remove the clasp pieces from the ends of the removed watch links. Examine the clasp pieces to look for the metal pins that hold them in place. Push out the metal pins with a push pin to free the clasp pieces. You can now reattach them to the ends of your ceramic watch band.
Examine the newly-shortened ends of your ceramic watch band. Without the clasp in place the silicone connector pieces will be exposed. Note the two small puncture holes that go straight through the silicone connector. Insert the teeth of one of the clasp pieces through the holes in the silicone connector from the bottom. Fold over the other side of the clasp piece, reinsert the metal link pin and push the clasp to click it into place. Attach the second clasp piece to the other side of the watch band using the same procedure.
Hi I just bought this watch for my wife's birthday and we had the same problem, it was too big. I googled and binged for a solution to shortening the band or to remove a link but no one had an answer. I go crazy with things like these and just decided to look at the watch band. First took out the pin for the latch so I can get a better look because that pin can be pressed down. On the inside of the band are arrows. Those arrows indicate which direction the pins can be pushed out. Just push the pin out with a tool, they will require a little pressure but they will give because one end of the pin is bigger than the other. Remove link and enjoy. Hope this helps someone else out there. Just a note this is only for the Peugot 7056 it has a white plastic band and I wouldn't recommend anyone try this with any other model as I don't know how those bands are designed.
Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
Making the Band Longer
Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.
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.
You need a link tool. You can purchase this item on Ebay or watch parts sites. Some have a little track that you put the band on and screw a pin into the pin on the band and it pushes the split pin out and you remove the link. Pay attention to the pins on the band. You need to push out the side with the split pin that looks like a flathead screw. It sometimes is. In most cases it is a pin. When the link is removed you have to connect to the next link and push the pin into the hole again and it shoul go in the direction of the other pins. The pin should go in on the side with the split looking pins. You will need special tools: pin pusher device, a pin block and hammer with pins to hammer out the pins on the band usually. Some or most folks take classes to learn this but you may be handy and figure it out.
