Just take a tiny little jewelery screw driver small enough to fit in the pin hole and tap it with anything that you can find. Then pull out other end. Look for arrows indicating which way to remove pin and go in that direction Some pins are like a hairpin and have a split at one end. Replace solid end first opposite of arrow direction. If there are arrows in both directions on the same link; like Fossil for instance, that means that it doesn't matter which direction the pins are removed or replaced. They are solid and they can go back either end first. It's easy. To get the pin in all the way I just used the little screw driver and tapped it in. Good luck.

The tools to do this are expensive unless you do it all the time. You can go to your Fossil Store and they will adjust your watch quickly.

If you do not have a Fossil store near you, go to a jewlery store or jewelry repair shop and they will do it for anywhere around $2.00 to $14.95.

The Fossil Store does it for free, though!

U can do it yourself using a cutting player and a small sharp apparatus..
just detach the watch and the band using the sharp needle like apparatus..
now you can remove off the unwanted portion by pulling off using the cutting player,...

I just adjusted my Fossil watch by using a small pick tool, it had an end that was small enough to fit into the hole on the end of each link. You just have to push hard sometimes to force the pin out at the other end. It helps to push against something that will give a little or to hold it sideways as you push to see when the other end will begin to poke out, then use a pair of tweezers to pull the rest of the way out (the pins are very narrow).

Fossil watch pink es2206 need more links, band too short

You can get links from Fossil.

Go to "" and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Click on "customer care" and under "product info" you will see "ordering links and bands".

Click on this.

If you are not sure how to fit the new links and they do not send you any instructions, take your watch to a watch shop who will fit them for you.

How do I adjust my watch band?

If you want to deuce the size of your band then I have found some instructions on the Fossil website and since most watches are very similar you can try the method described there.

If you need to replace links then you can get them for Skagen (free!).

Go to "", 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"

You can buy it on eBay. Choose JEWELLERY AND WATCHES, then click on TOOLS. There are plenty of watch band adjustment tools.

Purchased fossil ladies watch am4183 at Macy's, stainless steel band is too big, is this band adjustable, if so how.

Check the sides of watch band and you will see the pin ends. They are holding all links together. If there are arrows inside the watch band, they are pointing the way the pins must come out.
To shorten the band you have to:
Extract the pins.
Take link(s) off.
Join the rest of band together and drive pins back.

How to adjust band

My best suggestion to you is to take it to a Fossil store (they will do it for free!), or go to a jewelry or department store (Dillards, Foleys) to get it sized right.

The problem with doing it yourself is if you do not have the correct tools you can scratch the watch or bend the pins easilly. Especially with the black band like you have.

If you go to a jewelry repair shop they will charge you. I have seen them charge anywhere from $2.00 to $15.00. Unlike Fossil or a few other big department stores.
