Pin Type I (Tools: Eyeleteer, Staking stand, Hammer or Pliers) Step 1. Set the watchband onto a staking stand or other appropriate holder. Step 2. Use an eyeleteer to push out the watchband connecting pin toward the arrow. If the pin is too tight, use a hammer to lightly tap out the pin. Step 3. Pull out the connecting pin with a pair of pliers. Step 4. The selected link can be disconnected from the adjoining link. 2. Leaf Spring Coupled Type (Tools: Tweezers or Pliers) Step 1. Use a pair of tweezers to push out the leaf spring of the link in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Remove the leaf spring by using a pair of pliers. Step 3. Other types of leaf springs as illustrated above are also used in leaf Spring Coupled Type Watchbands. Step 4. Disconnect the link from its adjoining link. 3.Single Screw Link Type (Tools: 1-mm Screwdriver or Tweezers) Disassembly Step 1. Turn the watch on its side. Firmly grasp the bracelet in the area of the link you wish to remove. Insert the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the slot on the screw head. While applying gentel downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screwdriver counter clockwise to loosen the screw. Continue to turn in a counter clockwise motion until you can feel that the screw is completely free turing. Step 2. Grasp the end of the screw with the tip of a pair of tweezers and remove the screw from the link. Set the screw in a safe place for reassembly. Step 3. Once the screw is removed, the link will come apart. Repeat this for as many links as necessary. If removing an uneven number of links, remove the greater amount of links from the 6:00 side. Assembly Step 1. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. Assemble the link, and turn the bracelet on its side. Insert the screw into the link either with a pair of tweezers or your fingers. The screw will only go into one side of the link. Step 2. With the bracelet still on its side, securely hold the bracelet between your fingers, and place the 1-mm screwdriver tip into the screw slot on the end of the screw. While using gentle downward pressure on the screwdriver, turn the screw in a clockwise direction until you feel the screw stop and the top of the screw is just below the edge of the edge of the bracelet. Do not apply more than gentle pressure on the screwdriver as it could cause the screwdriver tip to slip off the screw end, which may scratch the side of the bracelet. Step 3. Once the screw is screwed down in the link as fare as it will go, give the screwdriver one final"twist" to securely tighten the screw. Be careful not to use too much force as the screw head could become damaged. 4.Snap Type (Citizen Sizing Tool) Step 1. Remove the link pine in the direction of the arrow. Step 2. Grasp the band on either side of the link from which the pin was removed. Apply gentle upward pressure on the side nearest the case, while applying gentle downward pressure on the clasp side of the band. You will feel mechanism disengage. Step 3. While continuing to apply gentle pressure as outlined in the previous step, gently"rock" the band to completely release the mechainism. Step 4. After releasing the mechanism move the clasp side of the bracelet towards the case to dissemble the links. Step 5. Gently pull the links apart. Repeat the procedure for as many links as need removing. Reassembly is opposite of disassembly. 5.Bracelet Sizing Instructions (Tools: Citizen Blue Pin Pusher Link Joint Remover II or Tweezers) Link Components 1) Split Pipe -Two pieces, one at each end of the pin. Generally one split pipe will remain attached to pin during sizing. 2) Cylinder Link - Two pieces, one at each side of the bracelet link. 3) Link Pin - Connects link, cylinders and split pipes together. Step 1. Note the engraved arrow on the backside of the bracelet showing the direction in which the link pin should be pushed and lay the bracelet in the cradle as shown above. Align the pin of the pin pusher with the link pin, being careful to centre it. Once centreed?, apply slight pressure until you feel the pin begin to move and then turn fixture upright as shown in illustration . This slight pressure will keep the pin pusher in alignment with the link pin while the tool is being turned upright. Step 2. With the fixture standing in the upright position, apply even pressure to the pin pusher until the pin drops out. Step 3. Using the tweezers, set the pin/split pipe assembly and cylinder aside. If the cylinder comes off of the pin, reassemble the cylinder and pin. The split pipe for the link pin at this outside end is still on the pin and dose not need to be removed. To reassemble pin and cylinder, insert pin into the hole of the cylinder so that the split pipe rests in the recess of the cylinder. Set aside for use during reassembly of the bracelet.

Fossil AM3425... | Answered on Dec 18, 2013


There is a tiny point (end of small metal piece called setting lever) on the left side of the stem (on watch movement, very close where the stem is entering the movement).
You have to push that point down with a metal pin or tweezers. Crown (winder) must be pushed in to normal position otherwise you will not be able to put the stem back properly.
So, do as follows:
1) Push the crown in,
2) Lay the watch down on flat surface and push on setting lever point,
3) While holding setting lever pushed in- extract the setting lever by gently pulling crown out of watch.

Do not forget to rate, please.

Just wear it for a few hours. It draws power from the natural motion of your wrist as you move around like normal. It should start up in a few hours and you'll just need to reset the time.
