Question about Casio Waveceptor Watch WVA106HDA2BV Blue with a Metal Band feat. Atomic Timekeeping Mens Watch wva1...
The arrows point in from edge of strap so I assume I need to apply pressure to pin to push from the edge. The other end of pin seems to have a fine slotted head as if it needs to be undone by a really fine screwdriver. Can you please tell me what to do as I don't want to be applying pressure to push out pin if it is the wrong option. Will take to jewellers if needs undoing with a screwdriver.
I've just bought a WVQ-620. Punching the pin out in the direction of the arrow was straightforward. Quick tap with a hammer (strap positioned over a drilled hole on a piece of wood) and then pull out with pliers.
I then discovered there was a small collet in the inner part of the bracelet (arrow end). Basically this is what holds the pin in place. And during extraction of the pin it can come out - it's very small, so be careful not to lose it.
Any case, re-assembly was by putting the pin in (at the arrow end) giving it a sharp tap with a hammer so it locates in the collet and then just driving it right through so it is positioned just so.
No special tools, just patience and good humour.

What appeared to be a slotted head was in fact a split pin so just had to tap pin thru from other end with 1mm fine screwdriver. Dead easy when I was confident I was doing the right thing. Took only 5 minutes to take out 2 links.
Hope this helps somebody??

Tips for a great answer:
Turn your watch on its side so the links are vertical. On the inside of the links closest to the clasp you can see arrows, which point in the direction that the pins must be pushed out. Only about four links on either side of the clasp have arrows, because these are the only links with removable pins. On the edge of the links on the opposite end from where the arrow is pointing you will see a small circle where the pin is inserted.
Place the tip of your pointed tool on the small circle mentioned in Step 1. Push downward on the pin in the direction the arrow is pointing. Once the pin starts to come out of the link, use your fingertips or a pair of tweezers to completely remove the pin from the link. You may need to use force, but be careful not to scratch your watchband. Use a pointed tool from a jeweler's or hobby kit or watch pin removal tool.
Slide the links apart where you removed the pin so there is a gap in the watchband. Slide your new link into the gap and fit the neighboring links into the new link so it matches the rest of the watchband.
Insert the new pin into the watchband. You will need to insert two pins, the pin you moved in Step 2 and your new pin, into the two empty pin holes. You need to insert the pin small end first so the larger pin head does not pass through the link. Insert the pin against the direction of the arrow rather than in the direction the arrow is pointing like you did in Step 2. Use your pointed tool and your fingertips to push the pins completely in the links until the pin head is flush with the edge of the link.
Best regards. Jewel
