1. Please pull out- with the band extended - a U-shaped hook (U-Bow) from the side of the band, carefully avoiding not to twist it. A special band shortening pair of pliers might be helpful here.
2. Separate the watch band by sliding sideways. It is advantageous to separate the watch band by
pushing in such a way that a U-bow remains in the upper part of the watch band‘s link.
3. Put together by completing steps 1 and 2 in reverse order: connect the shortened or lengthened halves of the watch band together by inserting the loose
U-bow. Ensure that every U-bow clicks into place.
