Is this a Strapcode aftermarket bracelet? If so, it should be screws so you need a tiny jeweller's screwdriver, a clean white surface so you can find a screw easily if it goes walkabout, and some kind of magnifier or loupe so you can see what you're doing, unless you're Superman?

I find needle nose pliers are handy for extracting the screw once undone, and for picking it up when it drops out. They don't always drop out freely.

If you need an uneven number of links, i.e. 3 on one, 2 on the other, put the extra link on the 12 o'clock side to keep the clasp centred on your wrist.

I work on a white microfibre towel so the screw doesn't bounce if it drops, because if one lands on the floor, good luck finding it :laugh:
