You better prepare a plain cloth to avoid scratch a piece of jewelry screw and ponson pinch ,if you cannot secure a ponson, find a big needle or sharp nail,take your watch put a piece of cloth to protect from scratch,hold your watch firmly that cannot slipt.In the side of links,there is a screw marks, or pinch marks lock,if you see screw marks you should use the screw ,if pinch mark ,use the needle or the nail to punch out the lock and detach it ..Again punch it in so it locks or screw it in.That s all you do patswan...

hope this may help;

I bought the self adjustable bracelet watch but do not know how to adjust it to make it tighter on the wrist


Self-adjusting bands usually feature easy to remove links that simply snap out. They usually look just like the main clasp or blend in with the band. Simply locate these links and undo the closures to remove or add them.

I bought a Michael Kors watch and need HELP!


Have you thought of changing the band to a leather one?

This would allow you to make holes in the best place to give the correct length for you.

Alternatively you might be able to get an expanding metal type which would solve the problem. This type can also be adjusted for length.

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 do you remove a link without using any tools


You don't say much in your question ...

So ... I'm guessing ...

I'm guessing you have a watch with a expansion band that has removable links.

I'm also guessing it has a snap fastener and you have already made your band smaller through adjusting that part of the bracelet.

I'm guessing that yours is of a similar design to several I have owned and/or adjusted for others.

I'm guessing you have a paper clip in your home or office and ...

I am also guessing you never thought of a paper clip as a tool.

Straighten one leg of the paper clikp and pop out the little keeper on two of those links, reattach the loose ends for a smaller bracelet. There should be a little arrow pointing in the direction you should push the little clip/keeper.

I hope this helps you make your bracelet the size you need it to be.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

How to make a relic watch bracelet a little smaller?


No but if this is a mens watch there might be a micro adjustment on the clasp. To adjust press the pin in the clasp and move the pin in or out depending on the position of the pin to make loose or tight.

Self-adjustable bracelet watch


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 bands metal is flipped over the bracelets 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 koining 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 to 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.
