You will need
- - awl or a sewing needle (you can try and floss);
- - pliers.
First, you need to choose a well-lit place, better if it is under the lamp or to be near a window. Be sure to clear the work surface from unnecessary things. This is necessary in order to little details that hours are not lost.
Metal bracelets are mainly composed of several parts by which they well fit hand. Usually, to band hours, a little shortened, just need to get rid of several divisions. You need to remember that if you shorten a bracelet more than one link, then you need to remove them from each side in equal amounts. Otherwise, the watch will be uncomfortable to sit on the arm. Also noticeable is that the number of divisions is different. Better start deleting those that are smaller, so you don't shorten the strap too much. Remember that the length of the bracelet is much more difficult.
Put the bracelet and carefully, not making big power (otherwise you can damage the clips, insert an awl or needle into a small hole, which is on every division of the strap. Slowly squeeze small metal skewers that hold this design. To understand in what direction you need to squeeze them, you need to look at the arrows on the inner side of your hours. When seem part of the skewers, press it gently with your pliers and pull out completely. Remove the required number of units, starting with those that are closer to the body hours.
Now you need to put the bracelet back. For this purpose, the skewers connect the desired links. If there is a need for a small adjustment, then do it. On the clasp there are several holes, they also have pins. They can also be adjusted, observing extreme caution.
Removing the links, try to keep them. Maybe after a while the strap will be tiny in this case you will have to return the division to the place.
