This is a quite attractive watchband. It flares out at the ends....the last 3-4 links being wider than those in the middle....a nice replacement if that's what you old band was like. This band is longer than most, over 6-1/2 inches long vs. many which are 6 1/8 inches long.

These Timex bands are tricky to shorten. You are going to need to remove some of the U-shaped clips in order to shorten it. (The U-Shaped clip is what holds the inside links to the outside links. If you look at the outside edge of the watchband while stretching it out, you'll see a portion of the top of a clip between the outside and inside links. Only by prying up the two outside edges (lips) of both an inside and outside link can you remove a U-shaped clip.)

First, figure out how many links you want to remove. You then choose a link towards the middle of the band and using a sharp pocket knife or very small flat edge screwdriver, pry up on one of the outside edges of one of the bands outside links (one of the links you see while wearing it). Then repeat the process with an adjacent inside link (one of the links that touch your skin while wearing it.). With both edges pried up, use either a very small flat edge screwdriver, or a pair of tweezers to pull out the U-shaped clip. Now repeat the process on the opposite end of the same links. At this point, you can either slide the band off of itself, or use tweezers to pull out the U-Shaped clip. Now count down on one side how many links to remove and repeat the process. (Note, that you'll need to be careful to choose the next link to remove carefully as the inside links and outside links overlap each other....you can't have two outside links butting up against each other, for example.)

Now, with the inside links removed, hold the two remaining large sections of the band together and slide a U-shaped clip into each end and fold the edges of the pried up links back down. (I first pushed them down a bit with needle-nose pliers and then pushed the band against a hard surface to push them down further. Finally, I used the needle-nose pliers once again to push the end of the links back down the rest of the way.) Don't worry if they don't look perfect on the outside edges....they aren't noticeable and don't touch your skin.

Also, if you lose one of the U-shaped clips, you can get one from one of the extra links you removed, or perhaps from you old watch band. This process is a bit tedious, so allow yourself some time.

It's a timeless look (no pun intended), and it has been around for a long time for a reason: it works, and it's super convenient. I got this to put on my Pebble smartwatch, because I hate the feeling of silicone rubber on my wrist. This is the watchband your dad wore when you were a kid, so it's going to read as slightly dad-like (i.e., not very fashionable or cool), but it's very convenient. It's not easy to size one of these things, so make sure you're prepared for that process with some pliers and a precision screwdriver. Look around on the internet for a how-to guide on taking out links (there are a number of them), and make sure you're prepared before you start. Good light, good tools, and patience will be of the utmost importance.

Also, I remember losing a lot of arm hair to my old expansion bands. I don't know if the technology has improved or what, but I don't seem to have that issue with this band.

i bought it for a timex but it was to large. it does fit my wenger though and i decided to keep it. it has a nice twist action and seems like it will be very durable.
