Question about Croton RC311065RGRG Wrist Watch

Open Question

I am trying to remove links from a Croton Reliance Watch band. There are no visible pin holes but on the underside of the band there are openings visible and it has 'open' above the slots. Do I push down or up to get off the links? How do I move the links to get them off?

SOURCE: Croton automatic watch, band problem

Unless you have the appropriate tools for the job, it is likely that you will mark or damage the links taking them out yourself - any reasonable jeweller will be able to perform this service, normally only costing a few dollars at most. You could also return the watch to Croton to get this done if you prefer; http://www.crotonwatch.com/contact_us.aspx If you are still determined to do it yourself, then it is fundamentally just a matter of identifying the removable links (they will have a small screw head visible on the side), buy the correct size screwdriver(don't get a cheap one, it will do your watchstrap no favors) then it is simply a matter of unscrewing the link pins required, reassembling the pin where you wish to rejoin the strap - use loctite or similar to keep it from undoing, but be careful not to get this in the moving parts of the strap. if you can post a close up picture of the removable links from all sides, then i could talk you through it in more detail. Hope this helps :)

I had the same problem & called Croton. If the band has arrows on the underside of the band they are pins that are pushed in. If that is the case, just find something like a punch small enough, or very pointy, and tap the pins out in the direction of the arrows underneath the band. If there are no arrows on the underside of the bands, then the pins might be threaded & screwed in.

SOURCE: can't get my croton watch to work.

There are a few possible reasons why your watch is not working:

  1. The battery is dead (sometimes even new watches have a dead battery in them).
  2. The plastic piece between the crown and the watch case was not removed (this protects the battery from wearing down until you receive the watch).
  3. You bought a watch with a damaged movement and it just will not work period so you may have to return it, exchange it, or have it repaired
These are the 3 reasons why your watch could not be working. The reason will fall into one of these 3 categories, so I hope this helps!

How do I shorten ******** my Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch?


Take a look at the watch from the side where the band attaches to the buckle. You should see four holes with one of them having a visible pin in it where the band is connected to the buckle. Moving the band to the right will shorten it moving it to the left will make it bigger. To move it simply get something that you can push the pin in with like a paper clip. Push the pin in and the band should come out move it to the left and push the in again and simply move the band into proper position. Once you do that the pin will snap back into place. If that does not adjust it enough go to your local watch store and they can remove links from the bracelet for you. Shouldn't cost you more than $10.

I have a Casio (593 F91W) and cannot get the pins out to change band. Jeweler cannot get the pins out. What is the secret?


It's likely that your band pins are thin and do not have collars that can easily be grabbed by most band removal/installation tools. If you are already changing the band, the best thing to do would be to cut off the band so that the pins are clearly visible, then use a set of nipping pliers to cut the band pins in the middle. At best, you'll cut them in half; at worst, you'll bend the pins into a "V" that will pull at least one end out of their holes. Obviously, you'll need fresh pins with your new watch band.
Efforts to dig the pins out of their holes can easily damage the holes themselves, making the watch useless.

Shorten the band on a Mossimo watch


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    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.

  • 4

    Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.

  • 5

    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).


  • Best regards. Jewel

    How do I adjust the length of the bracelet (watch band) for a Casio EF106D-2AV bracelet watch?


  • Select a clean, flat work surface where you can perform your watch band adjustment. Put down a piece of felt to protect the face of your Casio. Turn on a lamp near your workspace to better illuminate the watch components with which you will be working.
  • Lay your Casio face down on the protective felt. Look for the small arrows on the back of some of the watch links; these arrows indicate the removable watch links and the direction their pins should be removed.
  • Locate the pin hole above the arrow on the removable watch links. Insert the tip of a watch pin removal tool, or push pin, into the pin hole. Apply pressure to the link pin, in the direction indicated by the arrow, to free the pin and remove the link. A pair of needle-nose watch or jewelry pliers can be used to help pull out stubborn link pins. Remove as many links as necessary for your watch to fit perfectly.
  • Reserve the links and link pins that you remove from your Casio Edifice watch. Store the removed watch components in a small, clear, plastic zipper bag. These components can be used when repairing or expanding your Casio watch band.
  • WARNING:Casio recommends that customers have their watch bands sized by an authorized Casio watch dealer. Sizing the band of your Casio Edifice yourself may void the manufacturer's warranty on your watch. Contact Casio customer support for more warranty information.

    How do you adjust the steel watch band of a Citizen Sky Hawk A-T? JY0000-53E


      Making the Band Shorter
    1. Step 1 Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
    2. Step 2 Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
    3. Step 3 Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
    4. Step 4 Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
    5. Making the Band Longer
    6. Step 1 Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
    7. Step 2 Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
    8. Step 3 Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
    9. Step 4 Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
    10. Step 5 Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.

    Adjusting a casio s940db watchband


  • On the inside of the band, locate the links with the arrow etched on them. The arrows mark the removable links.Lay the watch on its side on a flat surface with the arrows pointing downward. Be sure to leave about 1/2 cm of space between the bottom of each removable link and the flat surface. Using a 1/32" flat head jeweller's screw driver (or metric size 1.0), insert the tip of the screw driver into one side of the removable links' pin holes. You will find that the pins have an end that looks like a screw head. This is misleading - press down very firmly on the other end. Press downward firmly to make the pin pop out the other side. Be careful not to lose it.Remove the pin on the other side of the arrow-marked link.Repeat as necessary to remove half the needed links. You will remove the other half from the other side of the band to maintain equal band length.Flip the watch over so the arrows are pointing upward.Align the holes in the remaining links. Insert the rounded edge of one of the pins into the open link hole. The pin will go in without trouble until the top.Holding the pin in place, carefully flip the watch over again and firmly push the pin fully into placing using the flat surface. The pin will snap into place.Repeat for the other half of the band as necessary.

    How do you adjust the watch band(remove the links)


    This may seem simple to do but it is literally a ***** of a task. Best to where amplifying glasses and use a ball point pen, not a pin or pencil. Push one side of the pin in while keeping a slight outward pressure on the band. When it releases be care full not to let it fly off into the void(which they can) and then move to where you need the band to be and reinstall using a single edge razor blade. Just carefully align the opposite side (assuming youve alredy put one end in)place the razor blade on center and slide the remaining pin into the hole area pull the blade out slowly and listen for it to click into place.

    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.
