SOURCE: Adjust watch band for Seiko 7T94 Stanless Steel Band

You may or may not 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 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!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

SOURCE: How do you remove a back off a old seiko watch

If you see the indentations on the case back to accomodate a tool, then you need that tool and unscrew counter clockwise. If you don't see those indentations then the case back then you should be able to pry by using the proper tool. You might be able to use a small bladed tool, like a knife, but be very careful that you dont slip and cut yourself. Go between the case and one of the band posts to get leverage.

Looking for user guide for model 4511 Desert Falcon Zodiac watch


Clearly a screwdown crown is better for water resistance but most watches maintain a seal without it. I wouldn't test out the 100m claim but it should be safe in the pool.

I have a Ricoh watch that has " ATRANTA Water Resistant 10BAR" on the face. Face is red in colour, has day and date scroll. Day of week can be seen in English or (guessing)Chinese or Japenese script. Back...


Ricoh Elemx AT Corp. is subsidiary company of Ricoh Elemex Corp.
The Hamilton Ricoh Watch Company, Ltd. was a joint venture (60% owned by Hamilton) and only existed between 1962 and 1964. Electric parts were made in Lancaster, PA while the mechanicals parts were made in Japan, the watches also being assembled in Japan. The movements are marked "Ricoh 555E", but are the same as the Standard Time Corp. 130E (fitted in Hamilton's Vantage range), which in turn is very similar to the Hamilton 505.
Although the factory was turning out 1000 / month, very few were sold. Marketing was handled by Ricoh but they failed to break the stranglehold and monopoly that Seiko had in the Japanese stores; in the end, most were sold on US military bases in Japan.
The partnership was dissolved in 1965; some of the Hamilton Ricoh movements were re-cased as Vantage and sold in the US.
Now Ricoh is owned by Elemex and they still producing watches. Follow this link and see for yourself:
http://www.ricohelemex.co.jp/en/products/req/
Unfortunately, I cant give you any details about your watch, except that the 10BAR means your watch can withstand 10BAR pressure, and that is 10 meters under water.
The bar (symbol bar) is a unit of pressure equal to 100 kilopascals, and roughly equal to the atmospheric pressure on Earth at sea level.
Rate me, please.
