SOURCE: Watch Band Adjustment

I think maybe we're all too familiar with the little old watchmaker image, loupe in right eye with tiny tools at hand......The links that have the arrows on them are indeed removable, it just takes more force than you might think. I'm in my office, so I used a pushpin (like for bulletin boards) and yep, it took more force than I thought, but the pin did come out the other side. A little tug with needle nose pliers and out it came. Remove link, repeat as necessary. Good luck

VSNDESIGNS SAYS:

You should first try to adjust the band at the Clasp first. The clasp has three holes that you could easily move your band up or down into. If you need to remove one or more of the links, try the following.

Most expandable watch bands aren't sizable. IF it is sizable you will be able to tell when you stretch the bracelet out. If it looks like you can unlatch the links when you stretch it out then you might be in luck, but like I said, most are not sizable.

SOURCE: How to adjust Skagen watch band.

You may have arrows inside bracelet.Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and start to unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!

Maxum Watch Band X6003L2 - Australia Need a replacement band, but distributor says it can only replace whole watch not band. It is only 18 months old. Any advice?


You might be able to replace the band with a generic watch band (meaning a band that will fit the watch but is not the exact band that it came with) Some good companies would be speidel or Hadley Roma to get the bands from. Just find out the millimeter length (or the size of the band) and you probably could change it.

How to adjust Relic ZR15539 watch band


Depends on the type of band. Is it a twist-o-flex or solid link? Your best bet is to seek out a local watch repair business and let them adjust it for you! Unless you do these often it can be frustrating and you could lose small parts!

Good luck!

I just bought a skagen stainless steel mesh band watch. I am trying to adjust the band to make it shorter. I have the piece the moves open, but I cannot figure out how to get it shut again.

your watch has the skagen signature mesh band. its actually very easy to adjust once you figure it out all you need is a small screwdriver.

1 Answer

The woven metal strap of my Skagen watch is unraveling at the edges. It is catching on my clothes, and scratching my arms. Otherwise, I love the design and functioning of the watch.


I am sorry to say you can't do much about that, unless you have the band soldered9which can be costly) Skagen is a really good company, and will send you another if you get ahold of them. I have seen them do this sometimes for free (not usually though). I don't know if the band is one piece with the casing , if not Spiedel. and Hadley Roma make mesh bands that will fit most watches if you want to go that route. Skagen has a web sight go there and get their phone #, have the model # ready (on the back of the watch) They will help you. If you find you still have a problem please let me know, and I will assit you further. Good luck!!

How do I adjust my timex wr 30m watch stretch band?


It's very difficult. You have to take the decorative link covering off first, then continue with the actual stretch band by following these directions.
