Removing links from a 97P144 watch band can be a bit tricky, but with the right tools, it can be done. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove links from your 97P144 watch band:

  1. Gather the tools: You will need a small screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and a link removal tool (specifically designed for removing links from watch bands).
  2. Locate the link pins: Look at the back of the band and locate the link pins that hold the links together. These will be small, thin pins that run through the links and hold them in place.
  3. Use the screwdriver: Use the small screwdriver to push down on the head of the link pin, and then use the pliers to gently pull the pin out of the link. Be sure to keep a firm grip on the pin as you pull it out, as it can be tricky to remove.
  4. Repeat the process: Repeat this process for each of the link pins that you want to remove.
  5. Use the link removal tool: Use the link removal tool to push the link out of the band.
  6. Reassemble the band: Once you have removed the desired number of links, reassemble the band by pushing the link pins back into place and securing them with the screwdriver.
Be sure to take your time and work carefully, as you don't want to damage the band or the watch itself during the process.

Band is too big. how do i remove links?

mcdevito75 here, generally the links are held together with pins, for this you"d need a link remover tool, Best Bet is to have a small watch repair shop remove these links, hold onto the removed links in case you need them again.

Need to take out a link or 2 to fit wrist. How do you remove the links

wrist watches links are made through two types of connection. First one is road based. the ends of the links are made in such a way that they make a round and interconnected with each other by sliding one link inside other then a thin road is placed in between the circle with spring loaded locking mechanism so that it shall not come out of the circle. In order to remove this type of link you are required to put the end of the link on a small hole and with the help of a small road tap the top of the road inside the links circle. Once the road is out you can slide out both the ends of the links and remove any number of links you wan't.

Second type of connection is made in half round type in this type one end of a link is made half circle and the other end is exactly same size hole the semi circle end fits inside the hole of next link. To remove the link you have to undo the semicircle part with the help of a plair and remove the link.

I recently received a Tag Heuer Link Calbre 5 Automatic watch as a gift. However, it needs 1-2 links removed. I took it to a local jeweler and they said it can't be sized because it they weren't ablwe to...

Here is how its done. First remove one end of the clasp (this is much easier on the adjustment side - just depress the pin and remove). Now you can separate the two halves of the first link (actually this is a half-link). Simply grab each half and pull. You may have to do some twisting - do it carefully so that you don't bend the pin. You may have to do some prying - if so, you can use a thin piece of plastic so you don't scratch the link and only pry along the pin so that you don't bend it. Once removed, you can now remove the first full link. Remove it in the same way. Now replace the end half-link and re-attach the clasp. Removing a link from the other side is a little more difficult. The clasp lock is held on with a long pin (slot on one end and screw on the other. One must be held in place while you turn the other. You may need another pair of hands to help you.
If you feel uncomfortable about any of the above, take it to a jeweler - a Tag AD is not necessary but probably best although any jeweler can remove a link if they understand how they are put together. Tell them the link is composed of a right and left half that snap together and they should then see and understand what they need to do.

How do i remove a link from the watch band?

hi friend,
step 1
Measure the watch band's length. Every wrist size is different, and there's no need to remove all of the links when you may only need to remove one or two. Putting the watch around your wrist and pinching each link around it to see how much room you need gives the jewelry wearer a reasonable estimate.
  • Step 258782_65x95_aspect.jpg Open the watch near the link you want to remove. Link watches have several openings, so even if you open the wrong clasp, it can always be reattached.
  • Step 358783_65x95_aspect.jpg Flick the tip of your fingernail inside the clasp to open the extra links. Continue doing so until you have removed all of the links that are too big for your wrist. If you have short fingernails, try using tweezers or anything with a sharp edge that can easily unfasten a link. New watches tend to be very stiff, so it may take a little nudging, but the links come off. It will be obvious which ones come off and which ones don't by looking at the back of the watch band. The links that come off have a claw on the tip of each one and sometimes have the brand name on top of it.
  • Step 458784_65x95_aspect.jpg Put the extra links in a safe place. There may come a time that you either let someone else borrow the watch or your wrist swells and you need these links again.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • If you can't get the links to open, visit a jewelry repair store. Workers there may be willing to help you adjust your watch for free. If you bought the watch from a retail store, the jewelry counter is usually required to adjust your watch for no additional cost.

    Watch band adjustment for polo club watch

    There are small holes at the side of some of the links. You need to push out the small needles or pins in these holes in the direction of the arrows that are marked on the links.

    You can use a sewing needle to do that (a blunt one, or break the tip).

    When the small pins are pushed out, the links can be detached.

    Hope that helps

    Cheers Critter
