How do you remove a link off the Casio Men's Edifice 10-Year-Battery Analog Bracelet Watch #EF106D-2AV?


Have a look at the links nearest the clasp.
These should have markings on to say which are removable. An arrow or some other indication.
Not sure if this watch has press pins that go through the whole bracelet or flip up catches on each band.

Caravelle by bulova 43b17how to adjust Stainless steel bracelet


To remove some links: If you don't have special tool, at least you have to have something really hard and thin (like the pin you use to post notes on the cork board). Put that pin in to the tiny hole between links where the bracelet pin is and then press/push it forward (follow arrow direction as shown on the inside of the bracelet links.) When the bracelet pin comes out at one end, pull it out of that end totally.
After removing one links, connect the two links next to each other by placing the bracelet pin back into the hole and push it to the other end.
To add some links: You have to have spare links and do the same way with the pin to attach more links.

How do you remove the end link?


take it to a repairer is my advice. but if you want to try you need a very lite hammer a very fine nail and a block to place the bracelet on its side. see what i mean..you do need the correct tools for this job as you may scratch the watch or damage the pins and barrels in the bracelet..place the watch on the side place and you should see the pin thats holding the bracelet section hit the pin on top with the very fine nail and it should push the pin through the bracelet you have to do this twice also there will be either 1 or 2 barrels inside the bracelet when you knock through dont loose these ..but you will be in tears by now as you have prob damaged your bracelet repair could be 200.oo .....instead of 20.oo to remove links....

Where can i buy black bracelet and how can remove


Scratches are not removable - you have to buy new glass as well as bracelet. Use this link to call stores in USA. There are no stores in Philippines. http://www.calvinkleininc.com/calvinklein/stores.aspx

How to adjust expandable bracelet pleaseI would like to remove links to make it smaller.


If you are ready to take that risk, here is how you can do that.
First- get watch on your wrist and by squeezing the bracelet count how many links you have to take out to make it tight enough (say 4 for example).
Check the sides of a bracelet. You will notice that the upper band metal is flipped over the bracelet side. Take tweezers or small pliers and unbend one of these. Try to do as little damage as possible.
When it's done, you will see two metal staples inserted into the bracelet. You have to pull them out. While pulling out, remember how they where positioned, as you will need to drive them back in the same manner.
So, when the staples are out, do the same on the other side of bracelet. Now you have bracelet in two halves.
Count off 4 links and undo the staples in joint of 4th and 5th link in the same manner as previously.
When links are out, take the staples and drive them back into the bracelet joining two ends together. You have to do that exactly the same way and position as you took them out.
When all staples are in place, bend the metal back over the bracelet sides.
BE WARNED: as you gonna do it first time, be ready that you can damage the bracelet or can not put it back together.

Good luck.

Aspen watch band too big


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 start to 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!
