SOURCE: Shortening stainless band for 1st generation Tissot Le Locle

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,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!

The 60-second counter hand shakes slightly when watch is tilted.


I don't think it is normal for hand to move when tilted. what about the warranty? Tissot must cover your watch under the warranty. Mind you I had a similar experience with Samsonite luggage and despite International guarantee, they did not honor. I have lost faith in some brand names.

Tip

After six years my battery is low, so I took my Tissot Touch back to the shop...


When you need frequent re.Syncronizing of your Touch or after 2-3 year
maybe you need to replace the battery.

you need:
a CR1632 3V Battery (about 2€)
a very tiny screw driver
a very sharp knife

With the knife remove the bottom of yout Tissot, (you do not need to unscrew) it's just a cover to pull up like in this imagedcef0c0d.jpg

Now you can clean with a soft brush & remove the dust.
Use the screw drive to replace the battery,
put back the cover & enjoy

I bought a Breitling Superocean Chrono (A13340) from "Sakal" duty free shop at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv Israel on 9-12-2010. The "attestation de chronometre" certificate number...

One other note.


The COSC number generally refers to the movement number not the case number.


Inspect the hang tags that came with the watch.. the movement number may be referred to on one of them... or to the COSC certificate.


Otherwise the only way the movement number can be viewed is to remove the back.


Watches have several numbers.. reference and serial.

A - Stainless Steel

13 - Caliber

3 - Certified

40 - Model (Super Ocean)


The case will have a number the movement and the bracelet.. the crystal etc etc.


When you have the watch serviced.. have them write the movement number down for you.. for comparison.


Good luck!

I have a Seiko stainless steel ladies watch, 3 years old, only one 'winder' no fancy buttons, analogue style. It has suddenly started beeping every hour - how do I turn it off?


mcdevito75 here, The beeping must be a signal that the battery is weak, have the battery changed. Look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.
