Shortening Metal Watch Bands
from the brand BEAR and other manufacturers

General Note:
Metal watch bands with removeable links can also often be adjusted at the clasp to change the length. Simply take the spring bar out and put it through one of the other pre-drilled holes.
The instructions here are not suitable for expansion watch bands. Please see the Rowi Fixoflex link for more details on how to shorten an expansion watch band.
1. Folded Metal Watch Bands with a flat splint

Band shortening: Metal Watch Band with flat Splints

Links that can be removed are usually marked with a small arrow on the underside.
First remove the metal splint from the chosen link. To do this, you will need to use the pointed end of a spring bar tool or a thin screwdriver. Insert the end into the gap on the underside of the watch strap and push the splint outwards as shown in the picture above. Use a pair of pliers to pull it out fully. Repeat this process for each of the links you'd like to remove, rememebering that only ones with arrows can be removed.
In order to put the band back together you will need to replace the splint into the link once the rest of the band it put into place. (Make sure you put the splint in straight). A small hammer could be useful at this stage of the process to ensure the splint doesn't protrude at all leaving an uneven or sharp edge.
Please Note: In order to avoid scratching your watch band, be careful, take your time and avoid brute force!

2. Solid or Folded Metal Bands with a round pin/splint

Shortening Metal Watch Bands with round pins

Links that can be removed are usually marked with a small arrow on the underside.
In order to shorten your watch band to the length desired, you will need to remove unrequired links. To do that you will need to remove the pins that are visible on the side of the band in the direction of the arrow on the underside. We recommend using a pin removal tool or set for this. For stubborn pins we recommend using the set so as to not scratch the band.
Once the required links have been removed the pin will need to replaced into the band to complete it again. To do this replace the pin in the opposite direction to the arrows. A small hammer could be useful to do this. Your band should now be the correct length.

3. Metal Bands with Screwed Pins

The removal of pins and therefore links for this type of band can be done by removing the screws (visible from the side of the band). Unrequired links can be removed and then the required screws can be replaced using a thin screwdriver.
Please ensure you do this over a table or tray to make sure you don't lose screws should they fall during the process.
