Cheap imitation of a quality watch tool,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SE - Spring Bar Tool, with Replaceable Tips (Misc.)
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.
