    Can someone tell me is this band something easily sized or do I need a jeweler? It has flat head screw heads at each link however they continuously spin when turned making me think they are simply decoration.

    Any help?

    You need two screwdrivers. One to hold one side still while you turn the other side. The two sides basically screw into each other to form the rod/pin for the link.

    Get a precision screwdriver with the spinning top. Or have a friend help you.. They have have added thread lock so some pressure might be needed.

    Thanks for the help. It is NOT an easy process and scratching the band seems inevitable. Why can't it be easy like the MM or HP bands?!?

    If you have the correct precision screwdriver like @Jmgarcia mentions it's really not that hard. You just need to make sure the tips of the screwdriver are the correct size as to not slip or to scrape the sides as you turn the screw. The most difficult part is stabilizing the band while you perform this if you don't have the proper tools. But like he says get a friend to hold it for you while you remove the screws.
