    I asked a question for an specific watch....INVICTA 5024. I have adjusted the bracelets of all my watches, I know the answer you posted, but doesn't work for this watch, links are different.

  • javicopico Jan 03, 2011

    I already did the spring bar on the clasp, but the links, don't look like spring bars, they actually look like screws. Please take a minunte to look up for a picture of this watch and you will see that is not like others (INVICTA 5024). The solutions I am getting are very easy, I already tried.

  • javicopico Jan 06, 2011

    This is not the case for my watch. Please look up for INVICTA 5024. I can't figure out how to get the pins out.

  • javicopico Jan 06, 2011

    Hi, please advice how do I get the pins off to adjust the bracelet of an INVICTA 5024 watch?

  • javicopico Jan 09, 2011

    This is not the answer I am looking for.



    I could have done that since the beginning.



    I guess that the purpose of paying for a service is to get it done. Not to be sent to somebody else.



    I am not satisfied with the solution............in fact, no solution for me worked.



    Thanks for your support............an unhappy customer

Watches usually have adjustable links, that sometimes require fine tools to change the links. The best thing I can tell you, not knowing what type of watch you have, is to take it into a Jewelry Repair shop and have them adjust it for you. They have the tools, and know how.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hi,

If the watch band needs adjustment, you can go to the vendor who sold you the watch. The vendor will use special tools to adjust links in the watch band.
To adjust the watch yourself, use a pin pusher or paper clip, remove links by pressing on the small pins holding the links in place. When the watch band separates, and the pin is free, remove pins, then links, one at a time.
Re-attach your watch band by fitting the end links into each other. Using your pin pusher, re-insert a joining pin to complete the sizing. Store your extra links and pins safely in case you need to adjust the watch again in the future.

    Locate
    the spring bar on the watch's clasp. When you remove the links,
    the spring bar should be at the end of the last link you plan to keep,
    so you will relocate the spring bar before removing the links.

    Insert the jeweler's screwdriver into the spring bar's hole. You'll
    be
    able to push the spring bar along until you reach the last link you plan
    to keep.
    Decide how many links you need to remove to get a good fit.
    Locate
    a hole at the top of the first link you want to remove. Insert
    the screwdriver into the hole.

    Press down on the hole in the link
    and this will release the L-shaped pin. This will unlock the link.

    Pull

    up on the link pin. It should slide out.

    Repeat above step for
    the next link. On most watchbands, you can't remove
    single links and must remove two at a time.

    Remove the links from
    the watchband.
    Continue to remove the links two at a time until you
    reach the desired
    length.When you have the number of links you want, make sure the link
    pin is in
    place for your final link. You'll need to use a jeweler's hammer to
    make sure the link pin is secure.

Adjust expansion bracelet


Since all bracelets are simiar, the instructions I found on the Fossil web site may help you.

I have found some instructions on the Fossil website and since most
watches are very similar you can try the method described there.

Go to "fossil.com", go to the bottom of the page and you will see a
menu, click on "customer care", and then look under "Product Info" on
the left and you will see "watch instructions"

Go down the list to the bottom and under "Phillipe Stark" there is an item "bracelet instructions".

How to adjust expandable bracelet pleaseI would like to remove links to make it smaller.


If you are ready to take that risk, here is how you can do that.
First- get watch on your wrist and by squeezing the bracelet count how many links you have to take out to make it tight enough (say 4 for example).
Check the sides of a bracelet. You will notice that the upper band metal is flipped over the bracelet side. Take tweezers or small pliers and unbend one of these. Try to do as little damage as possible.
When it's done, you will see two metal staples inserted into the bracelet. You have to pull them out. While pulling out, remember how they where positioned, as you will need to drive them back in the same manner.
So, when the staples are out, do the same on the other side of bracelet. Now you have bracelet in two halves.
Count off 4 links and undo the staples in joint of 4th and 5th link in the same manner as previously.
When links are out, take the staples and drive them back into the bracelet joining two ends together. You have to do that exactly the same way and position as you took them out.
When all staples are in place, bend the metal back over the bracelet sides.
BE WARNED: as you gonna do it first time, be ready that you can damage the bracelet or can not put it back together.

Good luck.

I want to adjust the steel bracelet on my new GMT II


You can do it yourself but proper watchmakers screwdriver is needed.
Check the sides of your bracelet and you will see screw ends with grooves. Unscrew them and adjust your bracelet (take the links out). Then screw them back in.
