SOURCE: How do I shorten the watchband to fit my wrist?

If you turn the band inside out...and stretch it...you will see either 2 or 4 small tabs per section. Use a jewelers screwdriver to lift up each tab per section and slide that section out. Now it will be easy to take other sections out as you won't have to maintain pressure on the band. Reassembly is reverse order.

SOURCE: How do I shorten my Ice watch strap?

mcdevito75 here, I imagine you mean a Band (metal) they can be shortened by removeing links from the band itself, you"ll need a specific tool called a link remover tool. they are available on ebay. However by the time you get the tool and the time to do the work, and if you don"t do any work on watches, the best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area to remove these links. Hold onto the removed links for later replacement. If it"s a Strap (material) on your watch, say, leather, rubber etc. simply cut the excess strap at an angle with scissors.

How do I shorten ******** my Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch?


Take a look at the watch from the side where the band attaches to the buckle. You should see four holes with one of them having a visible pin in it where the band is connected to the buckle. Moving the band to the right will shorten it moving it to the left will make it bigger. To move it simply get something that you can push the pin in with like a paper clip. Push the pin in and the band should come out move it to the left and push the in again and simply move the band into proper position. Once you do that the pin will snap back into place. If that does not adjust it enough go to your local watch store and they can remove links from the bracelet for you. Shouldn't cost you more than $10.

Its too big to fit my hand good but also i cannot shorten it enouph so it can fit me without being extremely tight. Is there an alternate way to shorten it. I noticed 4 holes where the clasp is and was...


Some clasps have holes in them to allow you to adjust the straps in smaller steps than removing links.

It sounds as though yours in one of these.

The pins are spring loaded just like the ones used to fasten the strap to the lugs of the watch, so you can apply a probe to one end of the pin with one hand, while applying a gentle force in the direction you wish the strap to go with the other hand.

Then do the same with the other side and repeat as needed.

I am trying to figure out how to shorten the wrist band on my Casio Edifice EFA-119.


mcdevito75 here, If your Casio has a metal band, you can remove 1--2 links, this takes a special tool called a link remover, best bet is to look for a small watch repair shop in your area. If your Casio has a strap, the buckle may be able to move up the strap to fit your wrist, if so, move the buckle up the strap to fit your wrist and cut offf the exccess strap. If not, you"ll have to replace the entire strap. Hope this helps.

Watch band sizing


OK, I make an attempt:

I saw on other pictures on the web that the links have small holes at the side. There should be some links with arrows r another marking. These are usually the links that can be removed to shorten the strap.

If there is a small arrow on the link, it means that you can push out the pin inside the hole in the direction of the arrow. Then the link can be detached.
You can push it out with a blunt sewing needle (break off the tip).

Remove links on both sides of the watch when resizing it.

Hope that helps.

I can only give a general guide.
Usually, watch bands can be shortened by removing links. These links are commonly held together by small pins. These need to be removed with a very fine punch. Looking at the ends of the pins, one end commonly appears "split", the other end may look quite smooth. The pin needs to be driven out from the "split" end. 2 will need to be removed to remove 1 link, then 1 replaced to rejoin.
Links should be removed equally, so gar as possible, from each side of the band. Your choice which side if 1 only is to be removed.
Sometimes the ending links are different to the others. It is only the ones that are identical that can be removed.
