SOURCE: Remove link form Relic Wrist band

For my relic ZR15372, all I did was take a thin, hard object (a thumbtack in my case) and carefully pushed out the connecting bar from the link.

If you look at the inside of the band of your watch, you may notice that on some of the links (the ones nearest the clasp for me) there is a little arrow pointing at the side - if you look at the side of the links, there should be a little hole, big enough to push a thumbtack into. If you apply enough pressure (again, carefully - no need to stab your thumb or any other part of your body), the connector pin should slide out a little on the other side. Then it's just a matter of pulling the pin out - perhaps a pair of tweezers would do the trick.

Hope this works for you!

SOURCE: shorten watchband

I have a similar watch and removing the links are not easy. There are pins in certain links that have arrows on the inside of the band. I used a push pin to remove the pins in the direction of the arrows. Snip the end of the push pin with a wire cutter or pliers so that it fits into the hole and tap the top of the push pin with a small hammer until the other end of the pin is exposed enough to extract it with a set of needle nosed pliers. Repeat for other side of link. When the pin is extracted, twist the link inward and it should snap out.
Remove the link and reverse the procedure, placing the pin in the opposite direction as it was extracted. You may have to tap it gently with the push pin and hammer to get it to go into the holes flush.
It takes a little while and some patience, but if you can get someone to hold the band for you while you tap the pin, it will be easier. Also, if you remove the spring loaded pin from the band fastener so the band can be laid out straight, it will also be easier. Good luck!

SOURCE: My ecclisi watch band links have all frozen, and then snapped.

Hi QVC would be a good place to start your quest, get in touch with them and explain the situation.
I assume from what you have posted, that the links were failing over a period of time even before the 12 month gurantee date, Be plesent but firm, QVC trade on good customer relations.

SOURCE: Kenneth Cole Wrist Watch unable to remove link

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!

Hope it'll help.

Regards

Arthur

How to remove links from invicta sea spider polyurethane bracelet


You should use two extremely small flat head screw drivers to remove links on Invicta polyurethane watch bands. The smaller pens on the polyurethane watch bands have a notched cap (tiny screws) on each end .You must use one screw driver to hold the pen cap (screw) steady and the other screw driver to turn the cap (screw) counter clockwise. You only have to remove one notched cap (screw). These caps (screws) are very small and you should be careful not to lose them. Once you removed the cap (screws) you can use a small screw driver or paper clip to push the pens through the links. You should repeat this til you remove the desired links.

My question, bought this diamond accent watch but the little snap thing that hold the watch band snapped off about 2 weeks after i bought it,got it at wal mart and they wont take it back, said its not...


If you present your watch and receipt for it the shop has a responsibility to repair any faulty parts. If, however, if it has been damaged, then they are under no obligation to repair/replace it.

I have an old (1991) Corum Admiral's Cup watch and need to remove some links. How do I do that? Thank you for your time.


mcdevito75 Here, You"ll need a special toll called a link remover tool, available on ebay, however if you"ve never done work or this particular work on watches, your best bet is too find a small watch repair shop in your area for the link/s removal.

Remove links on this watch


Most bands have removable links on the end of the band. You can tell because they have small holes on the side to remove the pins that hold them together. The links that don't have holes are not removable. This is standard on most metal bands.

Need to add a link to Armatron watch band


You have to call Armitron to get extra links for this watch. You could add them in yourself (if you purchase a watch link remover tool), or you could take it to a jeweler. You could also ask if they have the easy links which just snap on and off available when you call and these can be just snapped on and off without any tools.

I cant open my brand new watch ...HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!


I just recieved a Moldavo Men's Junior Sport (Model # 0605105 with certificate of authenticity) as an award -- but the instructions didn't bother explaining how to put the watch on!

For any hidden clasp band, see this web page (excerpt below):
http://www.worldofwatches.com/cust/sizingwatch.asp?d=0

Refer to the "Hidden Clasp" diagram and follow the instructions under the diagram:

cad9c3e.jpg To open this clasp, reach under the bracelet band and lift upwards. The band extends to allow for easy removal.
