Puritan watch link removal

its sound simple enough but you will need to use a bit of force to budge the pin. you will need blue tack punch pin hammer pliers. Roll up the blue tack push onto flat surface , push the barcelet side on into the blue tack wthe arrows pointing downward. insert the punch into the hole and tap with hammer. do this until you have removed enough links then push a pin back into the bracelet and tap home withthe hammer.

How to remove watchband links from an Invicta

Invicta watches either have screws or push pins. The one I sized yesterday had screws; it was tricky because I had to hold a flat head screwdriver on one side of the pin and then another screwdriver on the either side to unscrew it (this kept it from just spinning without loosening). If it is a push pin (you will know by looking because either a screwdriver will fit in the head or not) then you will need to get a thin steel rod about the width of a paperclip, a hammer, and a block that you can support the watch on. Push pins are pressure set and you just have to tap them out with a hammer by hitting the pin pusher/ steel rod into the pin hole to knock it out. Knock out the pins to the links you want to remove and then use a pin to resecure your watch band together.

I need to remove metal

here is a solution..
Each removable link on the watch bracelet has an arrow that indicates the direction of the pin to be pushed out .first decide how many will go out than find a tiny nail to be used as " pin pusher"
Simply align the pin that connects the links with the pin on the wood table and with a small hammer/plier hit it to push the pin out...there it comes..and after taking out linls ,connect the remaining link parts together and put the pin back into....
Some people prefers to use a pro type pin remover..it is a cheap tool..just in case pls visit the URL below..on this link there is an article as Watch Band Adjustment Tool Link Pin Remover too..

Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and

If your watchcannot be wound up (by this I assume you mean using the crown wheel), you can wind it by swinging it gently from side to side for a few minutes (200-300 oscillations).

If the watch does not work after doing this, then send it back to the supplier and ask for a replacement/refund).

The minute and hour hands are "out of sync"... the

The problem that you describe--misalignment of the hour and minute hands--would be fixed in the way you'd describe--the watch movement would be removed from the case, and the hands would be removed from their pinions and placed down more accurately. This is a relatively minor repair if you have the right tools, but it's not something I recommend for the average DIY person.

The first challenge is removing the watch movement from the case. Some movements drop out easily, but others are kept in place by the crown and setting stem. These must be removed in a way that they can be re-inserted. Simply pulling them out by brute force usually damages the internal set lever; different movements have different mechanisms for releasing the stem.

The second challenge is removing the hands. Attempting to "slide" the hands on their pinions runs a high risk of damaging the pinions by making one or both of them oval instead of round. Very little force is applied to the pinions, so even a slight distortion can mean that your watch will start to hang up at odd times when friction is stronger than the force being put out by the watch movement. Even worse, it's possible to break one of these little parts--they're very strong, but they're also very brittle. A tool called, naturally enough, a "hand remover" is used to pull the hands straight up off their gears; they're then pushed back into their correct place.

For a qualified watchmaker or watch repair technician, this is a simple and inexpensive repair that should take them only a few minutes once they get around to actually paying attention to your watch. Given the high risk of damage to your watch if you haven't done this before and if you don't have a hand removal tool, I would suggest that you outsource this repair instead of attempting it yourself. I have ruined more than a few watches in the course of practicing this repair; it doesn't take much force to damage these delicate parts!

Remove links from metal watch band

This was on a Seiko Dive watch SKX007. This has the metal links joined with pins, which, you will find, are split/spring down their length.

I used a neoprene mouse mat as a work surface, which was ideal as it allows the pin to move out, whilst supporting the links and stopping any slippage. I also rigged a table lamp close by.

There is an arrow which shows in which direction the pin needs to be pushed to remove it. Look carefully and you see that one end of the pin is slotted a little, the other is plain. Push the plain end in the direction of the arrow firmly... it's a leap of faith.

As a tool, I used a cocktail stick to start with. It required firm pressure and then it suddenly gives. I was able to draw the pin out by hand, but used pin nose pliars in one instance, as some pins offer more resistance than others. In most cases the cocktail stick worked (I got through a few). I then graduated to a thumb tack which was more reliable, but metal to metal, so a bit more worrying.

Sliding the pin back was simple, though take care to get the smaller links the right way up when it is re-threaded. I pushed it home the last few millimeters with the flat side of the pliers, giving a final push with the cocktail stick. Good luck. Simplysimon.

If the watch is running to slow or fast the problem is in the timing module where the quartz crystal is located, there is nothing that can be done to adjust this to fix it. The watch should returned to the jewelers.

You should be able to wind it manually. Pull out the crown to the winding position and wind fully. With any automatic watch you should do a manual wind periodically.

I have an automatic watch and it is falls behind

There is nothing you can do yourself, as this is mechanical problem and needs watchmakers attention. I suggest the oil in balance staff jewels has not been changed for quite a long time. All you have to do is to visit your closest watch repair shop. There are few things you can not do without proper knowledge. Rate me, plz.
