Then set the hour and minute hands to the desired time. When setting the minute hand, put it 5 minutes later than the time to be set and turn it back to the correct time.

Watch Sizing- Adding/removing Links
You must first determine how many links need to be removed/added from the watch. Always check for arrows on the back of the watch links, so that you can follow the direction of the arrow for easy pin removal. Turn over the watch to look for arrows on the underside of the links, showing you which way you need to push the pin out of the link. Use a pin remover tool to push out the hair clip pin from the hole located on the side of the link. After the links are removed/added, simply follow these steps in reverse to re-assemble the bracelet.
