How to Change Links in a Ceramic Watch

Updated March 23, 2017

Making sure that your watch fits properly on your wrist is important for both comfort and style. Watch bands come in a range of styles depending on the watch design. Ceramic watch bracelets are constructed from links attached to a clasp. If the watch is too large on your wrist, you need to remove links to enable it to fit correctly. You can remove the links using common household tools.

Put the watch on your wrist. Fasten the clasp. Pinch the strap. The amount of links held in the pinch is the amount that you need to remove.

Push a pin into the hole on the side of one of the links. The other end of the pin will pop out of the other side. Pull it out with a pair of pliers. Remove the housing tube from the link. Separate the links. Repeat this process for as many links as you need to remove.

Realign the bracelet ends. Feed the housing tube into the hole on the side of the link. Push the pin in after it until it is fully in the link. Repeat this on the opposing side. Check the fit of the bracelet on your wrist.
