Accutime creates fashion watches for men, women, children and teens. Some of their licensed brands include Bongo, XOXO, Disney and Vivani. If you recently purchased any of Accutime's watches, you may want to know how to adjust it properly. Fitting a watch yourself saves you time and money from going to the jeweller.
If you have a chain link watch, you will need tweezers and a pushpin. For a leather or plastic watch band, you will need a hole punch. You can find any of these tools at your local craft or jewellery store.

Place the watch on your wrist. Determine if the watch is too large or too tight. If it is too tight, insert the prong into the next hole, farthest from the watch's face.
Insert the prong into the next hole, nearest the face, if the watch is too large. Adjust your watch to the correct fit, until it is on the last hole. If it still feels loose, then you will need to add an additional hole.
Place the watch on a flat surface. Place the hole punch after the last hole. Press the punch all the way through the band.
