How Do You Shorten Seiko Watch Bands?
To shorten a Seiko watch band you will need to remove at least one link from the watch band. The steps for doing this apply to all types of metal Seiko watch bands. This is a simple process that can be completed by anyone, regardless of whether they have experience working with watches. Identify the link you wish to remove.
