How to Remove Links in a Slazenger Watch

Updated April 17, 2017

Slazenger is one of the oldest and best-known British brand names, specialising in sports apparel and equipment. Slazenger watches are held to the same rigorous standards as any of Slazenger's equipment, and are designed to be tough and attractive tools. Removing a link from a Slazenger watch requires the correct tools and some simple instruction, but should be relatively easy with some care.

Examine the links closest to the buckle of your watch. If they have small holes with a thin metal rod inside, continue to Step 2. If you find a small screw instead, move to Section 2.

Place the watch facedown on top of the soft cloth, to keep the watch from being scratched while you work on it.

Examine the underside of the links closest to the buckle. A small arrow should be engraved on the bottom of the link, indicating the direction the pin must be pushed out.

Use the small driving tool (a thumbtack will work) to push the pin out of the band in the direction indicated by the arrow. Gently pull the pin out from the other side when possible.

Repeat Step 4 to remove all links that are needed to size the band.

Line the remaining bracelet links with the buckle, and insert one of the removed pins in the opposite direction from how it was removed (push it toward the arrow). Push the pin all the way into place to secure the bracelet.

Place the watch facedown on top of the soft cloth, to keep the watch from being scratched while you work on it.

Examine the links closest to the buckle to find the small screw heads. If each side of the link contains a screw, two screwdrivers will be needed to remove the link. Otherwise, one will suffice.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw from one of the links. If the band has two screws per link, use a second screwdriver to hold the other screw steady while removing the partner screw. Set the screws and removed link aside.

Repeat Step 3 to remove all links that are needed to size the band.

Line the remaining bracelet links with the buckle, and insert one of the removed screws back into the watch. Use the small screwdriver to tighten the screw counterclockwise until snug.

Tip

A local jeweller can easily size your watch for a small fee.

Warning

Be cautious when using metal tools near your watch, as the face and body of the watch can be easily scratched.
