Sizing Your Watch     *New: "How to" Videos

Fitting Your Wrist - Removing Links
If you have ordered a watch with a metal bracelet, there is a good chance you will have to have one or more links removed to fit your wrist properly. This can only be done with the wearer present. That is why we ship all watches unsized.

We suggest you take your watch to a reputable local jeweler for sizing. Expect to pay a nominal fee (around $5) for this service. Do not attempt to size your own watch! You may damage or scratch the watch and bracelet. The liability is yours - TheWatchery.com will not accept a scratched or damaged watch for return.

Hold on to Them
After the links are removed, keep those links! Occasionally, a watch bracelet may break. It is a lot easier (and cheaper!) to have the bracelet repaired with your own links than ordering and shipping new ones.

(Please remember that once you have your watch sized, you may NOT return it for a cash refund or exchange)
