    Bracelet adjustment question

    Hi all, just got my Junghans Meister Driver Chronoscope with bracelet. I love the watch Iím just not sure how to adjust the bracelet. Iím pretty sure I need to push the pin just not sure which direction to push it to because thereís no arrow to show which way to push the pin to on the back of the bracelet. Usually with my other watch bracelets thereís an arrow pointing which way to push the pin to. Or may be in this case it doesnít matter? Hereís what the bracelet and pin look like. Name:  IMG_6996.JPG

    Not super experienced with this, since I usually just look for the arrow too. But I think for pins, one end of it has a SPLIT down the middle for the pin to expand / flare out.

    So, I'd assume you want to push from the end that is SOLID, so the SPLIT end goes out the side.

    Same when you insert the pins back in, always put the SPLIT end in, and push the SOLID end.

    Hope someone can correct me if I am completely wrong :P

    Definitely look for the arrow, which indicates the direction that you should be pushing the pin out. If the pin does split, then make sure the split end is on the end that the arrow points in.

    Some of these pins do not have the split ends but might have a sleeve. If any hollow cylindrical pieces come out after pushing the pin, save that piece because without the sleeve, there is no friction for the pin to hold and the pin will fall out.
