Unless the watch back has notches on it, you want to look around the edge of the watch and find a little lip. When you find the lipp, use one of the knives and pry open the back. Take one of the tweezers and pull out the battery, you could also use one of those handy-dandy screwdrivers to pry out the battery. Put the new battery in laying exactly like the old one , then proceed to close the back, making sure that the little notch (on the INSIDE lip of the back case) lines up with the stem and crown (the part used for setting the watch) so not to break it. The back openers and the knives are just differant ways to opn the back of the watch. Sometimes watches have screws on the back that need to be taken off in order to open the back case. The case vise is to minumize the wear and tear on your hands. The tweezers are for taking out the battery. If you have anymore questions PLEASE feel free to contact me I will be glad to assist you further! Good Luck!!!

What size pin tool do I need to remove the bracelet?


If you have an eyeglass repair kit (available at drugstores), use one of the small screwdrivers to depress the pin and remove the band. If you don't have one of these, try a large, unbent safety pin-- but I'm telling you in advance you will probably stick yourself at least once... just get the repair kit!

How do I take out a couple links in the band of a 7056 White Peugeot watch. The pins are not spring loaded like most other watches. The band is plastic and there is only one pin per link. I don't know if...


Hi I just bought this watch for my wife's birthday and we had the same problem, it was too big. I googled and binged for a solution to shortening the band or to remove a link but no one had an answer. I go crazy with things like these and just decided to look at the watch band. First took out the pin for the latch so I can get a better look because that pin can be pressed down. On the inside of the band are arrows. Those arrows indicate which direction the pins can be pushed out. Just push the pin out with a tool, they will require a little pressure but they will give because one end of the pin is bigger than the other. Remove link and enjoy. Hope this helps someone else out there. Just a note this is only for the Peugot 7056 it has a white plastic band and I wouldn't recommend anyone try this with any other model as I don't know how those bands are designed.

How can I shorten the watch band. I've tried pushing the pins, but they don;t seem to move. What is the significance of the arrows on the back of the band segments? Thank you for your help!


The arrows show you the direction to push out the pins.
  • Look for an arrow on the inside of your watch band. The direction the arrow is pointing is the direction the pin should slide out of the band. If your pin is screwed in, you may not see an arrow on the inside of your band.
  • 2 Look on the edge of the watch band for a small round object, the pin. If the pin head is flat, then it needs to be pushed out. If the pin head has a screw driver groove, then it needs to be screwed out. Depending on the type of watch pin you have, take a sharp pointed tool or a tiny screw driver from a hobby kit or watch tool kit and place it on the head of the pin. You should be looking at the end of the pin on the opposite side from where the arrow is pointing.
  • 3 Push on the sharp tool to push the pin out of the watch band. You will need to use force to push the pin out. If your pin is screwed in, gently unscrew the pin until it becomes loose. Remove the pin with your fingertips. Make sure to put the pin in a safe place, because you will need it again when resizing the watch band.

    How do i shorten the band on my casio 3319


    You look for the end of the link that has a screw like notch and tap it out with a small screw driver (like a eyeglass screwdriver or any thing you can sub,) and pull out with a needle nose pliers. Be careful and out the band on a rubber or paper surface though.
    Providing you have the tools. I did mine in 3 min.
