    It takes some getting used to but does the job.
    Fiberglassexpert
    Whn you turn it, it just spins like a wheel and does not move the pins at all.

    Tool works fine to open threaded-style watch back covers.

    This is a handy little case opener. It's easy to adjust, and it does exactly what it's supposed to do. Unfortunately it won't open watches with small holes on the caseback (Omega, IWC, Breitling, etc.) because the pins are elongated, and they won't fit in the holes. It's best for opening watches that have notches around the outer edge of the caseback (Tag Heuer, some Seikos, Citizens, etc.).

    I'm thinking I might be able to file down the pins to make them fit into other watches. If I break it, so what. It was less than $5.

    This little device works well to open most screw back watches. Just be careful as this can scratch your base up if you are too heavy handed.

    Not to be used with expensive watches.

    The title about sums up the good parts... within a few minutes of getting it and opening a watch of mine for battery replacement I had the tool tore apart. The casting on mine was very poor quality, the case halves fit together with some big gaps and the pins wobbled so bad I scratched the back of my one case (Fossil) since it didn't have very deep notches in the case back. A little file work improved the fit of the two halves of the tool case and held the pins a lot straighter. That's about the point that I discovered that the one pin was drilled out at an angle causing the pin to pinch instead of slide. For as cheap as it was, I'm not sure it's worth my time shipping it back and trying for a better one, I'll probably just fish out my needle files and try to straighten the groove on the defective pin. I realize it's a cheap tool, but I had hoped for a little better quality than this....

    I got this opener to use with my Invicta watches and it did the job, but users should pay extra attention and caution when using. The opener is not the best-made out there. It isn't very precise and honestly speaking, it feels kind of cheap.The entire unit is made of metal, can't say what kind, but it is metal. The tabs used to grap the watch have some wiggle on their sides, which I think contribute to the problems I had.

    But, at this price, I wasn't expecting any more. The opener did the job, but be extra careful when using it, because this tool is not well made; it will give in when you think you have a good grip on the watch's back plate. So, to avoid more damage or any damage, make sure the tool is in all the way, and "very tight", or it will come lose as you start to turn it. Adjusting the tool to the watche's size, is easy, simply turn the knob you see in the middle.

    After using it, even though it isn't the best, I don't see it breaking any time soon. I would, however, try to keep it lubricated. A couple of drops of W40 or hair clipper oil will do the trick.

    If you are picky about the way your watch looks in the back, I would definitely NOT recommend this opener. Using it requires not just pratice, but patience and being aware that it might possibly come off as you turn it and most likely leave marks on your watch. So think about it before you buy. Hope this helps.

    I'm not sure why this item is so highly rated here on Amazon (4.5 stars); I find most reviews quite accurate but this item is very poorly made with large tolerances so the tips wobble, the tips themselves have an odd shape that will fit most cases poorly and unfinished sharp edges that will badly scratch the case if they slip. I have purchased other screw-back case openers (a jaxa type for $19 (see my review), a suction type for $12) and they are vastly superior, though more costly. I guess if you are very careful with this tool and you will very RARLY use it (e.g., only to change a battery once every couple of years), it might be worth the money. If you collect and/or repair watches, I say do not buy.

    I opened my Seiko diver watch (which is about 34mm wide)fairly easily with
    this tool after a few attemps to lock-in. There is some side to side play in the teeth of the tool, and of course; it only grabs at two points (? indentations in watch).

    This watch-spanner tool, can open to a width of about 52mm maximum (give or take a silly mm).

    Given the price-performance ratio I'm happy. For less than $10 I bought this tool and
    batteries.

    Using it it can slide around a little: on small delicate watches this might be a problem.

    I only used it on the one (seiko) watch, so I can't say how it will grab on other size and shape
    watch backs.

    This tool worked perfectly!

    I have watched some jewelry-store guys open my watches before to replace the batteries, watching usually from a distance, noticing all their magnifying lights and ultrasonic cleaners and really nice tools, how impressive they looked. But with this little blue tool I opened 'er up, then out with the old and in with the new.

    I know I am cutting into some jewelry guy's livelihood by doing it myself but, sorry, it was fun. Saved a few bucks too. Probably many bucks by not letting wife near a jewelry store unnecessarily.

    This tool may be cheap but it does everything I need it to do. Sometimes there is no need to pay a premium for a tool that you use here and there. Even if I used this tool many times a week I think it would be just fine.
