Product Description

6" Spring Bar Tool for Watches This is a must have tool with one tip that is reversible, a small fork on one end and a pin pusher on the other. The other tip is a large fork which is the most useful end for removing spring bars quickly on leather straps. The small fork is for grabbing spring bars for the backside of metal bands.

    Don't waste your money on this inferior product.

    The small punch tip, which is used to remove the pin from a watch band, broke during after about three minutes of using it.

    I found that all three tips were well made and functioned appropriately.

    This tools broke in a heartbeat! Looks nice but is made cheap, didnt last a week! It offered replaceable tips, turned out to be just one that was on the tool itself, so not really having replacements like it said.

    I bought this piece of junk some months ago and it worked OK at the beginning. Then during a removal, I noticed one of the tines on the small end was gone. Fortunately, it still removed the pins, but how long before the other tine decides to break? It left a jagged edge and might gnarl the inside of the lugs. I haven't tried to file the jagged, but why should I? I never forced the issue with the removal procedure. So I can only conclude that the metal was not properly tempered. As a lot of stuff from Asia appears to be. I'd replace the cruddy tip if I could find the info here. I couldn't, so that's probably a waste of time. Guess I'll go Swiss.

    I received my SE Spring Bar Tool very quickly and well packaged. I was originally put off in my buying decision by some of the negative feedback regarding tool breakage, but decided to purchase it anyway, due to the low price.

    When I received the spring bar tool, it was well packaged and appeared to be well made and finished. The knurling was not too aggressive and the threads were well made. There were no chips in the plating. Noticing that some of the feedback was related to tool breakage, I tested all three tips included with the tool. I found that all three tips were well made and functioned appropriately. I attempted to purposefully break each tip by applying a force many times in excess of what would be required to remove the three different types of watch band spring bars that the tool was designed for. They did not break. I can only conclude from my experience that either someone was asking the tool to do something for which it was not designed (removing a link pin, not a spring bar and "tapping lightly"), or used the tool improperly, e.g. excessive use of force.

    I am picky about my tools and I have no concerns about including this fine tool on my bench. It is remarkably well made for the price.

    If you do break the tips, you may purchase first quality Bergeon replacements at Jules Borel for a modest fee. However, until you learn to use tools properly, you will probably break those as well, so purchase several.

    It is the poor workman who blames his tools.

    First things first:

    Do not buy this tool.

    As some other reviewers have noted, it's poorly made and will break. For me, it happened the first time I tried to use it. The small fork tip is made of low-quality metal and the tip just snapped when I was trying to remove a spring bar. I'm very fortunate to have not scratched my watch. Learn from my mistake and do not be tempted by the low price.

    It's important to note that this is a copy of a high-quality spring bar tool that is Swiss made. Bergeon sells a version with their name on it as the model 6111 even though they don't manufacture it, that's how good it is. If you can get your hands on one of those, you have what most consider to be the finest spring bar tool available. Of course, the $30-40 price tag is a bit of a pill to swallow but it sure beats scratching a watch that worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars. A small price to pay, as I now know.

    This spring bar tool works well until it chips then not so good. The replacement tips were not included as offerred. Don't waste your money on this inferior product.

    It bent as I was trying to change the band on my Patek Philippe. I don't believe the gold pins are stonger than standard metal pins

    As other reviews say, this thing is cheap and will break easily. Took me about 5 minutes. And it is also dangerously sharp

    it does not come with spare tips- the tips are just removable and reversable. The small punch tip, which is used to remove the pin from a watch band, broke during after about three minutes of using it. I was removing a pin on my watch band, and tapping the tool lightly, and the tip just broke off. very poor quality, i strongly reccomend you choose another product
