My husband recievd a coach lexington watch today as a gift. We are unable to open the clasp and there are no instructions in the small manual included in the box. It appears to be one that you squeeze to open, but that's not happening either.
It's a bit of a b!tch to open I know but you kind of pull it open.. it's odd and worrysome at first because you feel like you are going to break the band on a watch you just paid $400 for.
Looking at the strap you will see the "Coach" logo embossed into the metal. Just below that is the point where the band opens. Grasp just below the sides of the band with your index finger and thumb at this point and pull (holding the rest of the watch stationary if it's not on your wrist). Make sure you are just pulling on the edges of the underside so you aren't pulling the center metal piece that acts as the hindge. You'll see it or feel it. Pull and it'll click off.. one side likely first. Then just pull the other side up . After putting the watch on/off for a few times it will get easier.
Be happy the watch isn't the easiest to take off, don't want it falling off accidentally!

you dont take pins out of mesh watch bands all you do is put a dart or small screwdriver in the slot to unclamp it slide the clasp were you wont it then lock it in one of the groovs, click link below for instructions please rate me if helped http://mondainewatch.co.uk/how-do-i-adjust-a-mesh-strap.html
It may have buttons on the sides of the clasp that you must press. If you do not see the buttons on the sides of band, it is a friction fitting, and you must pull on one or the other side of the "butterfly" clasp for it to release.
If you see a large outside clasp, there will sometimes be a fold over safety. This is called a tri-fold clasp. You must pull up the hinged clasp one direction, then the main clasp the other direction. A bi-fold clasp has no safety, and can be pulled one direction to open.
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.
Ajusting the Clasp - Skagen signature mesh bands are easily adjustable in just three simple steps:
LIFT - SHIFT - PRESSLift the slotted clasp, Shift the adjustable buckle to the desired position (make sure the clasp is set in one of the indentations on teh back of the band), Press the slotted clasp closed.
Your watch has double folding clasp and it is opening by pulling bracelet exactly in the middle of clasp. Some clasps are very stiff, so, use a bit of force to open it. Here is the link where you can see how the opened clasp looks: http://www.amazon.com/Just-Bling-Ladies-JB-6210-Diamond/dp/B002JPK310
Most clasps have a series of small holes drilled in them, and the end of the strap is held in by a small, spring-loaded bar whose ends are seated in one set of holes. Take the end of a small paperclip, or a large needle, and use it to depress the spring-loaded pin. You can then carefully slide it to another set of holes to make the band smaller. Don't let the ends of the pin slide all the way out of the clasp, or it might shoot off into space.
Hi if it is anything like the other eco watches ---------
just under the clasp that lifts up you will find a little button, it is about 2mm long and there is one on either side, push these in with your thumb and index finger and it should release the clasp.
When you close it up,you will feel it `pop` back home again.
