How to Adjust a Casio Titanium Watch Band

Updated April 17, 2017

Kashio Tadao founded Casio Electronics in 1946 in Tokyo, Japan. Originally specialising in small electronic devices, Casio has expanded since its inception to produce musical instruments, scientific calculators, wristwatches and other products. Adjusting a titanium Casio watchband requires removing links with special tools (depending on the type of link) and careful instruction to you don't damage the watch.

Examine the watch links closest to the buckle. The narrow end of these links has a small hole, allowing the link to be removed. If the hole contains a simple pin, move to Step 2. If the hole contains a small screw head, move to Section 2.

Set the watch face down on the cloth to prevent damage.

Examine watchband's underside. Locate the small engraved arrows. These indicate the direction you must push the pin.

Use the small driving tool to push the pin out of the link in the direction indicated by the arrow. Pull the pin out from the other side when the driving tool can no longer push the pin.

Repeat Step 4 until the bracelet is sized correctly. Remove links from both sides of the bracelet to keep the watch balanced.

Attach the bracelet to the remaining links using one of the removed pins. Drive the pin in the opposite direction of the arrow to rejoin the band.

Set the watch face down on the cloth to prevent damage.

Examine the side of the watch links to find the small screw heads.

Use the small screwdriver to remove one of the screws, releasing that link. If the screw does not come out while turning, use a second screwdriver to hold the opposing side of the link.

Repeat Step 3 until the bracelet is sized correctly. Remove links from both sides of the bracelet to keep the watch balanced.

Attach the bracelet to the remaining links using one of the removed screws. Tighten the screws clockwise until they no longer move when given a small amount of force.

Tip

Your local watchmaker or jeweller will often offer a free or very inexpensive watch sizing service.

Warning

Be careful using metal tools near your watch. Titanium is a strong metal, but the crystal front and the finish on the titanium can easily be damaged.
