Hi,
In order to remove the links of your Mtg930 watch you will need a couple of tools . It is recommended to have a watch pin pusher and a spring bar remover tool in order to do so. If you do not you can use a small precision flat head screw driver , the size that is usually used to fix glasses or smaller.

First you need to lay a cloth down at a table . Lay the watch on top of cloth to prevent scratching . flip the watch upside down and have a good at the back of the watch bracelet.

If you look carefully you are going to see notches on the back of each link with an arrow pointing in. This is where the spring bars are accessible and can be pushed in to remove the link.

You need to place your spring bar remover, pin pusher or precision screw drive in the notch against the edge.

Mean while push the opposite side of the watch link up so you can see the most of the spring bar inside the notch.

The spring bar is going to look like a pink with a notch on the the top then gets smaller. As shown below on the left side of the picture. If you are looking at the notch on the spring bar, that is where you need to get our tool ontop of . So you can push down the spring bar.

Once you push down on that notch on the spring bar the link will be able to slip out . Without a spring bar remover it will be more difficult and you will need to be patient as you try to work your flat head screw driver into the notch and be able to push down . Once the pin is push down you need to pull the link from the rest of the bracelet.

Do not be surprised to take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes if you have no experience and not have a spring bar remover.

Once you removed all the links you desire , You will need to put the spring bars back into the links and close the watch bracelet up.

The easiest way is to slip spring bar into middle of link. Bring the other end of the bracelet over so it the bottom covers the other link with the spring bar head out. Push the spring bar down with your tool as you slide the links back together.

My Casio watch band has split apart where the rubber part holds the main pin to the steel watch band making the band unable to be repaired. I would like to find a replacement watch band.Can you help me?


are you referring to casio mtg900 if so do you mean the rubber part below the G button . If so I do believe casio sells that first link . You can call them if you would like to order it if they still have in stock or for a whole new band

I am trying to figure out how to shorten the wrist band on my Casio Edifice EFA-119.


mcdevito75 here, If your Casio has a metal band, you can remove 1--2 links, this takes a special tool called a link remover, best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area. If your Casio has a strap, the buckle may be able to move up the strap to fit your wrist, if so, move the buckle up the strap to fit your wrist and cut offf the exccess strap. If not, you"ll have to replace the entire strap. Hope this helps.

I need to shorten the metal link watch band of my Casio Model 2747 watch.


I just looked at the watch band link more closely and figured out how to remove the links. Pretty engenious link attachment arrangement!

I thought there would be something in the watch manual about band adjustment, but there wasn't. I guess it is not something a "normal" person would be able to do.



Thanks,

Look for removable pins in the band to allow removing one link at a time until it fits ok.

Pin that holds metal band clasp is missing


If it is only the pin that holds the metal band, this is an extremely inexpensive part that is available at most stores that sell watches.
