I need to shorten my Hamilton X-Wind 3 raw metal bracelet by removing two links.

Three raw bracelet is shown here:
http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-37010654304929_2161_110528941


I do not see any links or pins to be marked as removable, all look similar to me.

Any 1st hand experience of doing that job? Any specific details and tips to pay attention to?
Are those regular type of pins? Tools to be used? Problems to be expected? Any suggestions will be appreciated a lot.

Many thanks!

Zac

Hamilton bracelet have regular pins. You should have either screw type pin remover tool, really small screwdriver or special pin tool and a hammer. there must be a lot of video instructions how to remove links on youtube. it is not hard to do, just don't loose small sleeves in links.

Thanks, but no links are marked as removable, where to start?
Small screwdriver would not do, I guess, as pins are not screw type pins.
I guess Hamilton bracelet has no sleeves in links? Wrong?

Check the links, there must be small holes. pins are in the holes.



and of course pins are in the sleves. sleves are tiny tubes which you will see in a link center part after removing pins.

Pins seems not to be Split nor Screw types.
Each pins is flat cut on one end, and has a small "nipple" on the other end.
So what is conclusion? Suggestions?
