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.
The new Laimer
It is very easy to adjust the watch strap with the shortening set provided for this purpose. You can find this on our website and you can order it when you buy your watch. With the green shortening tool the metal pins are the easiest to move and the silver push pin helps to push out and adjust the metal pins. But you can also simply use a similar object like a blunt nail or a strong paper clip to shorten.
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.
