You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
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 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.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: I bought the self adjustable bracelet watch but do

Self-adjusting bands usually feature easy to remove links that simply snap out. They usually look just like the main clasp or blend in with the band. Simply locate these links and undo the closures to remove or add them.

Seiko sne039 only runs in direct light


It will be ticking in two second intervals, This is because it is very low on power. It should keep correct time and eventually settle down. It needs a long exposure to a nice bright sunny day and it will be fine once it has a good initial charge.

There are several easy to follow tutorials on u-tube. It's easier for you to look at these than for me to describe how it is done. Just search "adjusting steel watch straps"

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.

How to remove link from band


The segments of your bracelet are held together with friction pins which have to be removed first in order to adjust it. This is a relatively complicated task requiring experience and a special tool to remove and return the pins and bushings back correctly without compromising the bracelet strength.
I recommend taking your watch to an Omega authorised dealer for adjustment while you wait.
