There is another "Invicta Watch Sizing Tool" on Amazon with many more reviews. The main point from half of those reviews is that it is easy to break this tool. The only difference I see from that tool and this one is that this one is yellow.
There are no instructions included with this product. With a little research online, in 5 minutes I removed 2 links from my new watch and I am wearing the watch right now. I am going to give you the valuable piece of information that I found online.
When you look at the pins in the links of the watch's bracelet, on one side there appears to be a split in the pin, as if you were going to use a small screwdriver on it. The other end of the pin is solid. This is the key to not bending or breaking the pin on this tool.
Line the tool's pin up with the solid end of the pin in the bracelet, making sure it is in the hole, and slowly turn the knob on the tool. It will push it out enough so you can grab the pin with tweezers of pliers and finish pulling it out.
When you remove the links and put the watch's bracelet back together, you can by hand push the pins back into the links. They will not go all the way in, so you can use this tool to push it all the way in.
