Hello,

First let's start with the battery replacement;

  • Set the watch face down on a flat rubber surface. This will keep the watch firmly in place and will protect it from being scratched on a more hazardous surface.
  • Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to pull the points just far enough apart so that each point can be pushed into each of the two notches on the back of the watch.
  • Keeping the pliers pushed into each notch, turn counterclockwise to begin removing the back of the watch. Once it has been loosened, finish removing it by hand.
  • The battery will be the only part inside of the watch that is not directly connected. Make a mental note of the battery's position and then remove it.
  • Insert the replacement battery into the same spot where the original battery was located.
  • Use the needle-nosed pliers to screw on the back of the watch in the same fashion you did in Steps 2 and 3, except this time turn clockwise.
For the wrist band replacement;
  1. Measure the band around your wrist to determine how many links must be removed.
  2. Identify the arrows on the underside of the watch band. These indicate what direction the pins should be pushed.
  3. Place the pin pusher above the first pin of the band, where the band connects to the watch clasp. Make sure the pin pusher is the proper size for the pin in question. Tap the pin pusher lightly with the hammer to remove the pin. Very little force should be needed to remove the pin. If you meet with resistance, make sure the pin remover is lined up with the pin. Set the pin aside.
  4. Move the pin pusher down the watch band to the amount of links needed to be removed. Tap the pin pusher with the hammer to remove the pin and the extra links.
  5. Reattach the watch band to the claps by putting the band back in the clasp and tapping the pin back into place with the hammer.
I hope the above helps....

Good luck.

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.

I need to shorten the metal link watch band of my Casio Model 2747 watch.


I just looked at the watch band link more closely and figured out how to remove the links. Pretty engenious link attachment arrangement!

I thought there would be something in the watch manual about band adjustment, but there wasn't. I guess it is not something a "normal" person would be able to do.



Thanks,

Remove links on this watch


Most bands have removable links on the end of the band. You can tell because they have small holes on the side to remove the pins that hold them together. The links that don't have holes are not removable. This is standard on most metal bands.

Adjust ladies citizen watch metal link band


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.

Remove links from fossil metal band


The links most likely need a tool that will push the pins out so you can adjust the bracelet. This can be easily done by any jeweler or watch store. You can also order these types of tools online to do it yourself at home. Please do not attempt to remove links without the proper tools as you will not be able to remove them and you will also damage both the bracelet and the pins.
