Little patience is required to adjust the links to Luxury Straps and the other Bling type of Strap. A good option is to take it to a jeweler or watch store to help you. But overall this should take about 10-20 minutes for someone making this watch adjustment for the first time. Keep in mind that you do not need to use the Link removal tool. Although it makes it much easier. You can simple use a sharp pin, thumb tack, or eye glasses screw driver.
