Replacing the spring pin is not a problem, however for the band to look as it did originally, the end piece, or end tab - which is now missing, must be replaced. These parts are generally proprietary. You can order one from your local Certified Master Horologist.
You may also consider contacting Luminox. Sometimes, the manufacturers run out of these parts and the whole band must be ordered because that is all that is available.
Wrap the watch band around your wrist to determine how many links need to be removed for the watch to fit properly.
Place the watch face-down on a flat surface.
Look on the back of the watch band. You will find an arrow that indicates which direction you should push the pins to remove the links.
Find the point at which the extra links need to be removed for your watch to fit your wrist. Using a 1 mm flathead screwdriver (or the edge of one side of a pair of tweezers), push the pins in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Finish removing the pins with your pliers.
Keep the extra links in case you ever need extra room on your watch band.
Those type of bands take a special push pin to push out the pins and can be rather tricky. My best advice would be to take to a local jeweler/watch repair as they have the best tools to do it and it normally is less the $15 to do and worth it.
Hope this helps.
On some watches - scuba usually - the crown has a rubber seal and that seal is engaged when the crown is screwed to the case. If your watch is like this, you need to unscrew the crown before you can pull out the stem.
Twist the crown in a counterclockwise direction several turns. You will be able to tell when it is completely unscrewed because youwill feel spring tension. Pull out the stem to set the watch. When you finish, push the stem back in.
Push against the spring tension and carefully thread the crown back onto the case.
That should do it.
