How do I shorten the strap of my Laimer watch?

Here you will find a short description of how you can easily adjust the strap of your Laimer watch to the circumference of your wrist.

Most of our watches have a normal link strap where the links are connected with small metal pins. This is exactly what is described below; allowing you to add or remove each link individually, thereby the watch can be adjusted to fit any sized wrist.

Alternatively, you can simply tell us the desired wrist circumference when ordering your watch and we will adjust the watch for you in advance.

1. Remove connecting pin

First use the green tool (small vice) to loosen the connecting pin between two bracelet links. It is important that you push the pin in the right direction (see arrows on the inside of the wooden links).

2. Remove connecting pin for 2 links

After it is loosened, you can use the small metal pin to push it out completely. Once you have done this with two links, you can simply remove the middle, now loose, part and put the links back together.

3. Reconnect open ends

When connecting the open ends you can use one of the previously removed connection pins to connect the open ends again. With the back of the pin or the green device, you can then push the connecting pin back in.


We also have some models that need to be shortened differently to that which is described above. A different procedure is needed for example for the models 0153 MIA, 0154 MIRIAM and 0155 MAJA. In these models spring pins are used instead of the normal metal pins. These can be loosened with light pressure through the metal pin. The green shortening tool cannot be used here. So if the watch you are looking for does not have a normal link strap, or you are not sure which strap/band it is, just contact us.

Problems with customization?

If you have problems shortening your watch, we recommend that you have it adjusted by a professional on site.
