Removing links on wave ceptor 106hdu

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.
Thanks
Ray

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.

OK,
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??

How do I add a link to the wristband?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • 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.

    How do you adjust the steel watch band of a Citizen Sky Hawk A-T? JY0000-53E


      Making the Band Shorter
    1. Step 1 Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
    2. Step 2 Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
    3. Step 3 Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
    4. Step 4 Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
    5. Making the Band Longer
    6. Step 1 Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
    7. Step 2 Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
    8. Step 3 Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
    9. Step 4 Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
    10. Step 5 Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.

    I have been given a casio wave ceptor wvq 570 as a present. Unfortunately the plastic strap keeps detaching itself, by pulling the strap pin out. The strap seems undamaged but has a lot of play round the...


    If the pin keeps coming out, then it seems likely that it is bent.

    This can happen if the watch is fastened very tightly and your hand bends back until it strains the pin.

    I suggest that you go to a jeweler and have a new one fitted.

    How do you adjust the watch band(remove the links)


    This may seem simple to do but it is literally a ***** of a task. Best to where amplifying glasses and use a ball point pen, not a pin or pencil. Push one side of the pin in while keeping a slight outward pressure on the band. When it releases be care full not to let it fly off into the void(which they can) and then move to where you need the band to be and reinstall using a single edge razor blade. Just carefully align the opposite side (assuming youve alredy put one end in)place the razor blade on center and slide the remaining pin into the hole area pull the blade out slowly and listen for it to click into place.

    How to adjust watch band on relic steel watch


    OK basically there must be an element that you can push out in the direction of the arrow. Either there is a very thin pin (like a needle) that you can push out with a blunt sewing needle (break the tip), or there is a more sophisticated system as it is shown under the following link:

    Remove link form Relic Wrist band


    For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

    If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

    Hope this works for you!

    Removing links


    It?s very tough to remove the links, I would recommend taking it to a dealer If you have to, you will either need a fine punch (or very masonry nail), a medium hammer, and a piece of wood a couple of inches square, a rag or wash cloth. A sturdy flat blade watch makers screwdriver. The ones from a dollar store may not work, and a pair of pliers. There are two types of links, both of them are a pig to remove, expect lost fingers, lots of swearing and possible scratched strap. Version one, The one I think you have, Place the watch strap flat on something hard, put a cloth under it so it will not mark, the outside of the strap will be on the cloth and you will see the arrow, there is a rectangle with a nipple recessed inside. Place the blade of the screwdriver between the nipple and the edge of the rectangle, press down and wiggle between the nipple and the edge and twist, there will be a locking pin which comes out of the side link, in the direction of the arrow. Wiggle away until you can free the locking pin. It?s simpler to put them back. Version two, Place the rag folded a couple of times on the block of wood Place the strap on the rag so it?s on it?s side, hang the watch over the edge of the block so the strap is flat against the block and there is nothing touching the watch (hanging in air) Look at the edge of the strap, see the small pin, in the fold of the metal, punch it out (down into the cloth) enough to then grab it with the pliers, I actually drilled a small hole in the block of wood so the pin would be pushed into that rather than against the wood, but don?t drill holes in your dining table! I would still recommend taking it to a dealer,

    You need to push the pins out in the direction of the arrows. Then take out one link from each side. Put the pins back in the same way they came out, with the slot pointing the same direction as before.
