For removing or adding links firstly you will have to remove bracelet pins or screws. In case if there are screw on each side of bracelet - you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. In case if there are pins - read the rest:
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 (screw ends and pin end may look similar). Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and try to unscrew one. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead of screws. 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 punches check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the pin end is coming out long enough - grab it with pliers and 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

Invicta corduba #4898. Crown will not pull out to adjust time and date. Large cap removed, smaller croen head will not come out. Is there a trick to it? Thanks, Steven


Divers watches usually have to have extra strong seals to prevent water getting in. This often achieved by screwing the crown wheel (to the right?) after it has been pushed home.

To pull the crown out, first rotate it anticlockwise about 1/4 of a turn and then pull.

mcdevito75 here, the stem may have a screw down cover if it"s been screwed down to tight you may not be getting a good enough grip to loosen it, Look for a small watch repair shop for this problem. Donot use ant tools yourself to loosen this screw down cover.

Does my 2010 invicta corduba have pins or screws in the braclet? how do I remove them? They look like screws but juts spin around both way when i turn them.


Sometimes the split ends of pins look like screws. If the slot is extremely thin its a pin A screw slot will be a bit wider. I pin removal toll inserted into the smaller end should do the trick.

DIFERENT DISPLAY FOR THE SAME WATCH MODEL.


A watch is considered Swiss, when it is made in Switzerland (hope I spelled that right), by a Swiss Comapny, using 50% or more parts that are also Swiss. Watches made this way will have "Swiss Made" Swiss" or a similar print on the back.

If it has the lables of "Swiss movement" "Swiss Case" then it means that it is only partly swiss made, and will not have a lable listed in the first part of this solution branded on the back.

Hope I helped, have a great day.
