I don't know. dollar stores may sell watch bands. watch
retailer may charge to resize your band. store where you purchased it may have tools for easy fix at no charge. just take proof of purchase and watch.

SOURCE: adjust expandable watch bands- Timex watch

Most expandable watch bands aren't sizable. IF it is sizable you will be able to tell when you stretch the bracelet out. If it looks like you can unlatch the links when you stretch it out then you might be in luck, but like I said, most are not sizable.

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.

SOURCE: shorten watch band

For this you will need a pair of fine tweezers, a small flat blade screw driver and a lot of patience.

Determine how many links you need to take out by pinching the band while it is on the wrist. Once you know how many you are ready to remove the links.
spread the band and you will see that the very end of the links is tabbed. Be careful and fold down the end of the link with your small screw driver. Be careful not to bend anything. You will then need to turn the band over and bend down the tab of the link on the opposite side but right beside the first tab you bent down. Now you will see how the band is held together. If you look into the two tabs you just bent down you will see a small peice of metal connecting the two links. This is a staple. Pull the staple out with your tweezers.
Now go to the exact opposite side and perform the same task. The band should now be apart where you remove the staples from each side.
Now count down the number of links you want to remove and perform the task again.
*Remember that you must do it the exact same way on each side or the band will not go back together.
Once you have the correct number of links out the band will go back together the same way you took it apart.
When folding down the tabs be sure to use gentle even pressure so you dont over bend them and keep the band from moving freely. I usually find it easiest to use the fla part of the screw driver in a gentle pressing motion.

Remember that this take watch makers and technician a lot of practice. Be patient. If you arent patient or good with very small parts, pop into your local jewlery store for help.

Need to change size of timex expansion band


Hi,

Take the watch to your local Jeweler that you trust. They have the proper equipment to do the job effeciently and quickly. The jeweler may not even charge you to just downsize the band. Make sure you keep the extra links. If you have to have extra links added, that will cost a little more. Done properly, without damaging/scratching the band, or watch...will be worth the expense.

Thanks, Bill

The only place you can find an original band is through the actual vendor. Try this.:

TG Service Center

North Little Rock, AR 72114 Phone: 800-448-4639
Email:custserv@timex.com Your only hope to find a band is if someone is selling like watch on Ebay, craigs list, etc and it is in new condition. Hope this helps.

Pins keep popping out when watch band gets snagged. What size are the pins for watch band?


mcdevito75 here, These pins may be a bit worn in the band of your watch, if so, you"d have to order a kit with various size pins for replacement. BEST BET, look for a small watch repair shop to fit new pins in the band.
