Ensure the arrows shown on the links are pointing down. When removing links, hold one end of the pin pusher against the pin to be removed. Strike the other end of the pin pusher with the metal side of the watch hammer until the pin slides out. It will slide out in the direction of the arrow on the links.
How do you remove a metal watch from your wrist?
Place the watch in the holder or on the foam with the arrows are facing downwards. Using the hammer, lightly tap the end of the push-pin tool over the cotter pins until you can no longer push the pin inside the link. When the pin pops through, remove it using your fingers or a small set of pliers.
Does fossil resize watches for free?
There are fossil stores at various malls, (at least the MOA in minneapolis as well as Southdale) and they will do the band sizing for free to their own watches, IIRC.
Gather the links up until it fits the way you want and count how many are in excess. Plan to remove the links evenly from both sides of the watch so that your clasp remains in the middle.
You can take your watch to any jeweler in your area that can remove links from watch to adjust to your wrist size.
Are Fossil watches waterproof?
Fossil does not make waterproof watches. Water resistant watches are produced by Fossil and other watch manufacturers instead of saying that any timepiece is waterproof. Water resistance can be maintained with resealed watches.
