SOURCE: How to adjust the watch strap

I just bought the o-ring watch by Starck, and it looks to have the same style of strap. If you look on the side of the clasp, you will see a pin on both ends. You have to remove these retention pins first (which may require tools that are unavailable to you). First, stabilize the watch on its side on a soft mat - I used the back of a mouse pad. Then, use a thin, stiff piece of metal tool to push the pins out slightly. I used a crafting tool. Once the pin sticks out enough, you can use a fine set of pliers to pull them the rest of the way out. (If this does not make much sense at this point, you may be best off going to watch shop.) Once you remove the pins, the clasp can be removed from the strap simply by lifting the clamp. You then trim the strap with a pair of sharp scissors to the appropriate length - make sure you see exactly what the end looks like, because the shortened strap will need to have the same apperance. After trimming, reclamp the clasp onto the strap, and reinsert the pin. You may need a small hammer to get the pins seated completely. Then, you're done. So obviously intuitive, why would anyone need directions, right? Honestly, Fossil did not make this one easy at all. Kind of irritating.

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.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and 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 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.

You can buy any rubber watch strap and take the loop off for replacement. Just make sure - the strap you buy is exactly the same width as the original ******** your watch. Needless to say: colour should match as well. Rate me, plz.

Save your nerves and your money. Visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to get links out. If you will try to do it yourself, you will loose your strap as you wont be able to put it back together. If you anyway decided to do it yourself, click on my profile and check out my solutions. I do explained all this tricky job to one customer about a year ago, so, you will definitely find it if you have enough patience to go through all my solutions. Rate me plz.

Repair location in my area


Try AWCI.com for someone in your area. I recommend a good watchmaker even for a cell replacement, they will usually clean the case and band, do a consumption check, a min run voltage test and a water resistance test and new seals to keep watch fresh.

Anyone who says they can't open your watch is NOT a repairman. Take it to a mom and pop repairman, NOT a big store, because most of the big stores send all their repairs out to someone like the mom and pop store. If you still have problems finding someone please feel free to get ahold of me and I will assist you. Good Luck!!
