  • Going to get the Bergeon 6767-F spring-bar tool mentioned earlier.

    It's actually a bit cheaper on their own site as postage is £6 and unlike their ebay shop you're not charged shipping per item.

    Need to resize a Seiko pin and collar bracelet so was going to get their bracelet pin remover.

    From videos I've looked at it seems easy use. Am I better getting a cheap set with a block, hammer and pin punches?

    Looked at some of the bigger watch tool sets on amazon but they seem too cheap really for the amount of tools you get. The H&S recommended early in the thread is out of stock. Thinking I may be better getting better individual tools as I need them? Don't need them right away but I could do with some case back opening tools as I've some older watches that need batteries or will soon. Mostly snap on but one fairly decent seiko quartz with a screwed down case back.

    Actually could do with some decent precision screw drivers as I need them for some other jobs. Need a mix though Torx, crosshead/philips and I've a G Shock with hex head screws for the strap!

    Thinking maybe a decent set of flat heads and this set.

    From my experience of just changing straps and removing links, and having the shítty ebay kit to start out with. A decent screwdriver is worth it. IF you're removing links it's definitely worth having a good one as it'll reduce the chance of slipping and scratching. The ebay one has a terrible finish and the metal isn't that hard, so it can slip easilly. I ended up filing mine to get a better tip but then just bought a set seperately. Flat head, probably get a couple of sizes. Honestly can't remember the size, I got a kit, but the good ones are so much better.

    The Bergeon springbar tool is definitely worth it too. It's a pleasure to use compared to the shítty ebay one it's much smaller and finer tip, can get into the gaps easier. The ebay one in the kit is a pile of shíte!

    But the ebay pin and collar remover is actually fine. Works perfectly and not something I'd spend money on. It's low quality, but still works perfectly.
    The watch case remover is actually ok too if you set it right. I've taken the backs off a good few watches. I wouldn't do anything expensive, but perfect for replacing batteries in quartz watches or messing with cheaper watches.
