How do you get links out of a cheap watch?

Ideally you'd use a little gadget with a screw and a pin that lets you pop the pins out of the links. However, you don't need one. Just bend a small paperclip, look for the arrows on the band, then put the paperclip in the hole and push in the direction of the arrow.
