Do you know the model number?

CA0710-82L

Uses what the site below calls push pins aka also called spring bars, attach the watch band to the lugs and thus the watch case.

I’m still coping with the trauma of adjusting the bracelet in a Rado True at work. Pins and collars, pins and tubes, fuck that shite.

Pin and collar systems are a pain in the ass. The last Heimdallr Monster I bought had the Seiko bracelet system on it. You just need to make sure you are taking the pins out in the right direction as well as putting them back. Those cheap pin removal tools that you get for free with bracelet purchases sometimes works the best I've found. Good luck.

I f!!!ing hate them
If the collars are loose in the holes of the link, use a piece of scotch tape to put over the link hole so they don't fall out while you work the pin in. You definitely need to have patience. It took me like 20-30 minutes to do my last watch.

Done a lot of them. Hold the collar on a straight pin and insert it into the hole. Use a little silicon grease to hold it there. Inset pin, Bobs you Uncle. (I love that phrase)

Trickiest part is not dropping or losing the collar.
