You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out.
First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together.
Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove.
Start with a tiny screwdriver and unscrew one of the screws. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead.
For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it.
Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well.
NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer!!!
Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows.
After a few blows check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the end is long enough to grab it with pliers, pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting.
After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet.
It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin.
Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times.
Job done!
If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.
Don't forget to rate, please.

Most watch pins go for an average of 5 to 10 dollars per pin. If the band is in good condition there is no need to replace it. Most invicta metal bands can retail from 35 dollars and up. We are located in the Holyoke Mall in Holyoke MA

I know of a couple places in San Antonio and Austin that would be able to custom fit your new band or help you with a repair.

Precision Time

They are located in the malls in either city. They also have a web site.

PrecisionTimeCo.com

You can try to contact Invicta for new links and they may have them depending on the age of the model. Look at your owners manual for contact information.

How to remove links from invicta sea spider polyurethane bracelet


You should use two extremely small flat head screw drivers to remove links on Invicta polyurethane watch bands. The smaller pens on the polyurethane watch bands have a notched cap (tiny screws) on each end .You must use one screw driver to hold the pen cap (screw) steady and the other screw driver to turn the cap (screw) counter clockwise. You only have to remove one notched cap (screw). These caps (screws) are very small and you should be careful not to lose them. Once you removed the cap (screws) you can use a small screw driver or paper clip to push the pens through the links. You should repeat this til you remove the desired links.

I have an Invicta Venom #6111 with Poly strap. I want to put a Stainless steel ******** instead. How do I remove the caps covering the Screws holding the ********?


The caps are just for decoration. They dont cover anything. To remove the strap, you have to release the spring loaded pins from the underside of the band. There are two on both ends. Reuse the pins with the stainless band but be careful not to have a pin go into the wrong hole because they can't be removed without breaking them!
