Since 1881, the Japan-based Seiko watch company has manufactured watches of all types, from extravagant models to more-affordable options. The Seiko Kinetic watch, introduced in 1986, has been redesigned over the course of 20 years for high performance and durability. While some watches use a leather band, the Kinetic uses a titanium-alloy band with links that can be removed easily using a spring-bar tool.

Things you need
- Spring-bar tool
- Microfiber cloth
Place the watch on your wrist and measure how many links you will need to remove.
Place the Seiko watch face down on a microfiber cloth to prevent scratches to the glass crystal while you adjust the band.
Locate the metal spring bars in the small holes between each link. Use a spring-bar tool to force the spring bars out of the holes. Remove as many spring bars as you need to obtain the correct adjustment.
Tips and warnings
- Put the extra spring bars and links in a safe place in case you need to reattach the links in future.
- Use caution when using metal tools near your watch, as watches can easily be scratched.
