Can i have my watch's belt made smaller?

to clear up my question:

Can i have it made smaller at a shop if i didn't buy it from there or is that rude?

And if yes, i can, around how much do they ask for this?

(ps: this is the kind of belt i'm talking about)

    There are normally link pins.

    Jewelers do it all the time. Some do it for free as a service, and others could charge you. If they do it for free, you might tip him/her $5.

    You might find a larger pawn shop, or a local jeweler, or the jewelry counter at a good department store to do it.

    It isn't rude, but you ask as "How much would you charge to resize a metal watch band?" You can telephone ahead.

    It's not expensive and almost all watch shops will do it. It's not rude in the least. It's business.  It's a few dollars per link. It's not a DIY job unless you have a few special tools. You mess up a DIY repair and you might need to buy a new strap. You don't want that!

    No, that's not rude at all.  Asking to have links removed or added is a normal thing to have done at a jewelry counter.
