I'm sorry to tell you there is no way you can fix it yourself. (Special tools are needed to fix). Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for help. note, please: As my answer is negative to you, it is positive to your bracelet (band), so rate me accordingly.

Can you please tell me how to remove links on my le cheatau ceramic watch?


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.

Changed battery .A square piece of metal the size of match head fell out. No alarm or light, casio forester FT200


mcdevito75 here, Of couse without the watch and piece of metal that fell out it"s very hard to say. Most likely it was part of the lock-down tab to keep the battery in place, in any event don"t lose that piece of metal. If your casio is working ok don"t worry about it, just don"t lose that piece of metal that fell out.

How to shorten watchband


It all depends on the style of the band.
Go to where the links are all the same size, not tapered at all.
If you have a stretch band, along the edge, unbend the flaps that hold what look liks tiny staples. Pull out what you need removed and put the remailing pieces together.
If you have a non-stretch band, grab a SMALL paperclip about 1/8" from the end. Along the edge of the band you will see the pins that hold it together. Have someone hold the band with the bottom edge of the pin you are removing, over an opening. Between 2 hardback books wirks great. Tap the pliers to drive the pin partially out. Pull it out and do the same to remove as many links as needed. Put the pins back in, in the same direction they came out, from the same side they came out.

Screws fell out of band


All the screws used in watchmaking are very specialized and usually custom made for every specific watch model. You will not be able to by them anywhere, so, the only solution is to find your nearest watchmaker shop and ask for the new screws. Expect to pay around $5-$7 for each screw (based on prices in U.K.)
Do not forget to rate, please.

My wifes Ebel watch band links seem to be stretched out in a few places. Can this be fixed?


Unfortunately it is not possible to do it yourself as special tools and skills are needed.
You can bring your watch to the nearest watch repairer or find the nearest EBEL dealer here:

Note: sometimes it is not possible to repair or renew stretched links and replacement of band is necessary.

Adjust expandable watch bands- Timex watch


Most expandable watch bands aren't sizable. IF it is sizable you will be able to tell when you stretch the bracelet out. If it looks like you can unlatch the links when you stretch it out then you might be in luck, but like I said, most are not sizable.

Adjusting mesh band


Take a small flathead screwdriver, or maybe a metal nail file and pry up the catch.DO NOT pry up by placing the tool on the rod used for hooking the clasp side to this side. Just stick in the metal piece that is folded over ( it should have a little notch in it) and pry it up. If you still don't understand I will be glad to send you a picture later on today. PLEASE let me know either way!!

Wrist band adjustment


In addition to the Pin there is also a small inner "locking" collar about 2mm long that fits into the center section of each link.

I did not notice this collar at first and it fell to the ground when I removed the first link. Without this piece the Pin's will just slide through the links with no locking mechanism.

It fits neatly into the inner portion of the link directly opposite the arrow that shows the direction of removal on the band.

How do I adjust my timex wr 30m watch stretch band?


It's very difficult. You have to take the decorative link covering off first, then continue with the actual stretch band by following these directions.
