Resizing my watch

I just purchased a new invicta watch and the band is too large for my wrist. Are the links held together by screw pin or push pin? How do I get either one of them out?

How do I remove a link from the Stauer Colossus Hybrid Chronograph


Removing a link from the wrist band of the Stauer Colossus watch is a task that requires some mechanical talent. The links are held together with pins. These pins need to be pushed out. I strongly recommend the purchase of a "Watch Band Link Pin Remover" (got mine on eBay for $7). Prepared with this tool, the steps are as follows.

a) Separate the wrist band at the position where the strap and latch are held together. Careful! This pin is spring loaded.
b) The links that can be removed are marked with an arrow on the interior side. The pin should be removed in the direction indicated by the arrow.
c) With the previously mentioned tool you will be able to perform the hardest part, namely push out the pin by 3/16". In the image below note how the pushed out pin goes into the groove of the tool.

d) Use a small screwdriver or a punch with diameter of less than 0.07" (or 1.8 mm) in order to push out the pin completely (see second picture).
The push pin of the tool can be reversed which is helpful for re-assembly. I recommend smoothing the one end of the pin with a small file or sandpaper. This way the pin enters easily into the hole of the lower section. Else you run the danger of bending the link if the pin is not correctly positioned and you apply too much force.

Shorten the length of a Kenneth Cole "New York" watch band


With the watch on your wrist, check to see how many links need to be removed from your watch. Your watch should fit comfortably on your wrist. Remove the extra links with your paper clip or push pin.To remove the links from your watch, press on the small pins with your tool that are holding the links in place. The watch band should now separate allowing the pin to become free, and you can now remove the pins first and then the links one at a time until you have removed the desired amount of links. Reattach the watch band when you are done removing the links. To reattach the watch band to your watch, simply fit the end links into each other. To complete the resizing, use your push pin to re-insert a joining pin.

How can I shorten the watch band. I've tried pushing the pins, but they don;t seem to move. What is the significance of the arrows on the back of the band segments? Thank you for your help!


The arrows show you the direction to push out the pins.
  • Look for an arrow on the inside of your watch band. The direction the arrow is pointing is the direction the pin should slide out of the band. If your pin is screwed in, you may not see an arrow on the inside of your band.
  • 2 Look on the edge of the watch band for a small round object, the pin. If the pin head is flat, then it needs to be pushed out. If the pin head has a screw driver groove, then it needs to be screwed out. Depending on the type of watch pin you have, take a sharp pointed tool or a tiny screw driver from a hobby kit or watch tool kit and place it on the head of the pin. You should be looking at the end of the pin on the opposite side from where the arrow is pointing.
  • 3 Push on the sharp tool to push the pin out of the watch band. You will need to use force to push the pin out. If your pin is screwed in, gently unscrew the pin until it becomes loose. Remove the pin with your fingertips. Make sure to put the pin in a safe place, because you will need it again when resizing the watch band.

    Adjusting band on Invicta 4901


    I was having the same problem with mine. Even though the band has arrows, those really are screws in the band. Two really small screwdrivers and you can take out the unneeded links. They are in there really tight, so expect some resistance until they pop loose, after that its easy.

    I DO NOT KNOW OR EVEN BEGIN TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO


    Invicta watches either have screws or push pins. The one I sized yesterday had screws; it was tricky because I had to hold a flat head screwdriver on one side of the pin and then another screwdriver on the either side to unscrew it (this kept it from just spinning without loosening). If it is a push pin (you will know by looking because either a screwdriver will fit in the head or not) then you will need to get a thin steel rod about the width of a paperclip, a hammer, and a block that you can support the watch on. Push pins are pressure set and you just have to tap them out with a hammer by hitting the pin pusher/ steel rod into the pin hole to knock it out. Knock out the pins to the links you want to remove and then use a pin to resecure your watch band together.

    My invicta stainless steel band has two bent pins and I was told to send back to invicta repair. Is the repair of watch band more expensive than a new watch band and who can put on new band.


    Most watch pins go for an average of 5 to 10 dollars per pin. If the band is in good condition there is no need to replace it. Most invicta metal bands can retail from 35 dollars and up. We are located in the Holyoke Mall in Holyoke MA

    Want to fit a watch band. take links out.


    You need a link tool. You can purchase this item on Ebay or watch parts sites. Some have a little track that you put the band on and screw a pin into the pin on the band and it pushes the split pin out and you remove the link. Pay attention to the pins on the band. You need to push out the side with the split pin that looks like a flathead screw. It sometimes is. In most cases it is a pin. When the link is removed you have to connect to the next link and push the pin into the hole again and it shoul go in the direction of the other pins. The pin should go in on the side with the split looking pins. You will need special tools: pin pusher device, a pin block and hammer with pins to hammer out the pins on the band usually. Some or most folks take classes to learn this but you may be handy and figure it out.

    How to remove link from band


    The segments of your bracelet are held together with friction pins which have to be removed first in order to adjust it. This is a relatively complicated task requiring experience and a special tool to remove and return the pins and bushings back correctly without compromising the bracelet strength.
    I recommend taking your watch to an Omega authorised dealer for adjustment while you wait.
