20 Most Recent Fossil AM3726 Wrist Watch - Page 2 Questions & Answers


I have looked at their web site and although it is one of the most helpful sites about, it is hard to locate instructions for individual watches.


If you can't get any help from your supplier, then follow this link to reach their customer care department. They should be able to tell you how to do it. https://www.fossil.com/en_US/shop/customer_care/contactus/fossil-contactus.html

mcdevito75 here, To reove the links you"ll need a special tool called a link remover available on ebay, or you can look for a small watch repair shop in your area for about the same cost of the tool and save on delivery time as shop can do the job right away.

For removing or adding links firstly you will have to remove bracelet pins or screws. In case if there are screw on each side of bracelet - you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. In case if there are pins - read the rest:
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 (screw ends and pin end may look similar). Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and try to unscrew one. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead of screws. 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 punches check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the pin end is coming out long enough - grab it with pliers and 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.

mcdevito75 here, You"d need a special tool called a link remover tool available on ebay but, the cost and time for delivery are the same as you looking for a small watch repair shop in your area to remove these links for you, hold onto the se removed links just in case you ever want to re-install them.

hello. Your best bet is to take the watch into a jewelry store.
They have a special tool designed to remove the link pins with out damaging anything. They may charge a few dollars but it would be worth it. J.

Go the Fossil website - http://www.fossil.com. There is a link at the bottom of the page, Customer Care. Click on that link. On the left there will be a menu item under Product Info that says "ordering links and bands". There is a paragraph titled "Order Links". There is an 800 number to call and they will send you two links just for shipping or if you need more than 2 links, it's $3 per link.

Try their web site. Go to http://www.fossil.com/en_US/shop/customer_care/static/fossil-customercare.html . You will find a set of instructions; choose the ones for your watch and download.

There are some instructions on the Fossil web site but they are not too easy to find.

Go to "fossil.com", go to the bottom of the page and you will see a menu, click on "customer care" and then look under "Product Info" on the left and you will see "watch instructions"

Go down the list to the bottom and under "Phillipe Stark" there is an item "bracelet instructions".

Look for screws in the links or pins. Sometimes "hairpin" looking keepers are used to remove a link.

Fossil AM3726... | Answered on Dec 06, 2009


Are you pushing the links in the same direction as the arrow is pointing? If so, are you using a tool specifically made for removing watch links? If the answer to both of the above is "yes" then look closely at your watch. The pin will look different on both sides. One side will look like the head of a "screw" and the other will look rounded and just come to a point. You always want to use the watch link remover tool on the ROUNDED end and push the "screw" looking end out. It could be that your watch was assembled w/the pin facing the wrong direction.

If you appreciate me solving this for you then please rank this solution as "fixya" or at least "helpful", thanks!

I know little about this watch, but generally there is an arrow on the inside of the band, you can use a small screwdriver to push on the side, or perhaps in a small hole on the inside of the band to force the link pin/s out in the direction of the arrow.

If you do not have the manual for it, you may need to remove the back cover in order to see th battery type. If removing the back proves too hard, a jeweler may do it for free or minimal charge. I got my battery from a dollar store and is a good name brand.Easy to install yourself.

Take your watch to a jeweler to identify type and possibly replace it.
