Question about Seiko Watches
Locate the spring bar on the watch's clasp. When you remove the links, the spring bar should be at the end of the last link you plan to keep, so you will relocate the spring bar before removing the links.
Insert the jeweler's screwdriver into the spring bar's hole. You'll be able to push the spring bar along until you reach the last link you plan to keep.
Decide how many links you need to remove to get a good fit.
Locate a hole at the top of the first link you want to remove. Insert the screwdriver into the hole.
Press down on the hole in the link and this will release the L-shaped pin. This will unlock the link.
Pull up on the link pin. It should slide out.
Repeat above step for the next link. On most watchbands, you can't remove single links and must remove two at a time.
Remove the links from the watchband.
Continue to remove the links two at a time until you reach the desired length.When you have the number of links you want, make sure the link pin is in place for your final link. You'll need to use a jeweler's hammer to make sure the link pin is secure.

Tips for a great answer:
Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.
Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.
Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.
Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.
Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).
