    Removing Links From G701D Bracelet?

    I’m having trouble removing links from my G701D so I searched the forum and found a few posts about removing links, some of which show a special tool. However, in all cases the links on the watches in question are removed by taking the pin from the outside of the link, while in the case of the G701D the pins are on the inside. I’ve taken a photograph so you can see how the pins are only accessible from the inside:

    As you can see in this photograph there’s no way to access them from the outside:

    It therefore seems that you need a different tool to the one shown in the other posts.

    Does anyone know how to remove links from the G701D style bracelet?

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    They look like spring bars to me with collars. I think you need to push the collar down, ideally with a spring bar removal tool. You could improvise but run more risk of scratches. It might be worth paying a few £/$'s to have it sized.

    Yup, they're very similar, if not the same, as my MTG-930 bracelet. Definitely little spring bars. A cinch to size if you have a springbar tool :)

    Thanks for the replies and advice. Just to be sure, is the "spring bar removal tool" at the below link the right thing?

    Yes, it's the one labeled 'spring bar removal tool' for £3.50. I have that same one, and it's not that good quality, but it will do the job.

    You could also check a Sears or similar type of home improvement store and look for small, narrow flathead screwdrivers. If you can find one small enough, it should work without a problem, and may be cheaper than buying one online.

    One of these little buggers will sort you out!

    Or just use a small flat screwdriver tip, it's pretty easy with a little patience!


    Watches are frickin evil!
