Service: Shortening of metal watch bands (with links)
PLEASE NOTE: This description describes a SERVICE and not a product. If you purchase this, we will shorten the band for you, you will NOT receive the tool shown above!!!
Shortening of Metal Watch Bands
Metal watch bands often don't come from the manufacturer in the length required. Metal watch bands made up of links (solid or folded) can normally be shortened to the required length by removing links.
The shortening of a watch strap can be completed by a local watchmaker or jeweler (for a small fee), or you can shorten a watch band yourself. In our shop under "Help" you will find instructions for shortening metal watch bands ("Shortening Metal Watch Bands").
If you would like us to shorten your watch band (with links) for you, then you need to purchase the required service with your selected watch band. This service includes:
1x shortening of one metal watch band, by one or more links
the removed links will of course be sent with your order
Please ensure you read all the information and notes here in detail!
If you order shortening of a watch band, please include the length you require your watch band to be once it has been shortened, and the model number of the watch band we will be shortening. In order to do this, please use the comments field during the order process.
Please also note, that the band cannot be shortened to the mm, as only complete links can be removed. The number of removable links on a watch band is often limited. It is therefore not possible to shorten an XL band to XS length.
As well as the removal of links, most metal watch bands can be adjusted at the clasp. More information can be found in individual product descriptions.
Please measure the length you require carefully. The shortening of the watch band cannot be mm exact, as only whole links can be removed. Watch bands shortened at the request of customers cannot be returned or exchanged with the realms of the customer's right of withdrawal (see our returns policy for more details). The terms of the defect liability still apply.
