    This tool is ok, it is good for removing straps. I bought it to remove a numebr of straps. After a week of use, maybe ten or so straps, the pointy end was worn down. For the price it is ok but you might want to order two if you are doing lots of work - also the shipping prices for such a small item seemed exessive.

    I purchased this tool for a single purpose - to remove the springpins from my Omega Seamaster and change the OEM bracelet to an aftermarket leather strap.

    The tool has a forked end specifically for this purpose, which may work on a hollow-link bracelet common on cheaper watches. However, on a high-end watch which utilized solid end link (SEL) bracelets, this tool is too large and brittle to do the job. In two tries, I broke off bother of the forked teeth, rendering the tool useless. It was extremely shocking how little torque the tool tolerated. It virtually shattered. I was later able to do the job quite well with the ridiculously-thin edge of an X-acto knife... which did chip, but didn't shatter as this 'tool' did.

    The pin-removal tool on the other end functioned as expected, although for the safety of one's watch, a vise-type tool is preferred.

    The millimeter scale markings on the side of the tool were a pleasant surprise, as they are difficult to see in the online photo, and I wasn't expecting them. They are good for quickly finding the correct distance between case lugs for band sizing.

    All in all, this would be a nice tool, but is made of very-low quality unhardened metal. Inexpensive is great, but there is definitely a threshold -- the tool must still be able to function, which this one does not. It may work alright on a watch with hollow end links... but my testing was limited by the tool's shattering the first time I used it. A version with a finer forked end made of hardened tool-grade steel would be much better.

    Best tool to have around. Fine point helps changing any watch strap. Had no problems using it. Great tool to have.

    I don't understand the lousy reviews for this product. It's been copied many times, and is pretty much a standard for watch repair, some brands even include one in their boxes.

    Can't beat the price. Buy it!

    I received the product in a timely manner and I was eager to put it to use. The "pin" side immediately bent when I gently used it remove a loose pin from my watchband. I tried to gently bend it straight again and the pin just broke off. I think the steel used to build this tool is of very poor, cheap quality. Oh well, you get what you pay for.

    I bought this to help change the leather strap on a beautiful watch. The v-notched end was too thick to fit - I used my pocket knife instead. Maybe there's a "knack" to it, but I didn't want to scratch my watch while practicing.

    The pointed end works very well for pressing in those tiny spring bars and the small, recessed auto-set buttons for which a ball-point tip is too big and a needle is too clumsy. But you probably have something around the house that would work just as well (mini-screwdriver, the point of a phillips head...)

    This little piece of metal will allow you to change watch bands. Some people have complained that there aren't any instructions with it. I'd have to say that means you probably shouldn't be messing about with your watch band and go to a jewler. If you want to see how one is used either take your watch into a jewler and they'll generally be glad to let you watch or hang about leaning on the counter and watch them do it. Of course, they may think you are planning to knock the place off.
    Anyway, if you have a number of watches and want to change bands, or just want to help your friends and family out by "working" on their wristwatches then this is a must have tool.

    This is a good tool to have, but while using it the small link remover bit became bent. It still works but I worry it may break completely
