Turn your watch on its side so the links are vertical. On the inside of the links closest to the clasp you can see arrows, which point in the direction that the pins must be pushed out. Only about four links on either side of the clasp have arrows, because these are the only links with removable pins. On the edge of the links on the opposite end from where the arrow is pointing you will see a small circle where the pin is inserted.
Place the tip of your pointed tool on the small circle mentioned in Step 1. Push downward on the pin in the direction the arrow is pointing. Once the pin starts to come out of the link, use your fingertips or a pair of tweezers to completely remove the pin from the link. You may need to use force, but be careful not to scratch your watchband. Use a pointed tool from a jeweler's or hobby kit or watch pin removal tool.
Slide the links apart where you removed the pin so there is a gap in the watchband. Slide your new link into the gap and fit the neighboring links into the new link so it matches the rest of the watchband.
Insert the new pin into the watchband. You will need to insert two pins, the pin you moved in Step 2 and your new pin, into the two empty pin holes. You need to insert the pin small end first so the larger pin head does not pass through the link. Insert the pin against the direction of the arrow rather than in the direction the arrow is pointing like you did in Step 2. Use your pointed tool and your fingertips to push the pins completely in the links until the pin head is flush with the edge of the link.
Best regards. Jewel
