Got a new watch that's a little too big, need to remove 2 links to make it fit
On the inside of the band, it will tell you which direction the pins come out. If you don't see this, they may be screws, or a different kind of pin. Look in the band to determine what you have
I am using a center punch I ground down on my bench grinder, to push the pins out. You may need to use a small hammer and light force to get the cotter pins out
I was able to just push them out
Notice that these 2 pieces, are one link.
Take the piece out and put the band back together the opposite of how you took it apart. May need a small hammer to get the pins flush with the band
Repeat for the other side, or as many links as you need out, then just pop the band back together and you're done. Keep the extra links somewhere in the event you need them in the future
