Highly Recommended, And A Very Good Value, but Not Quite Perfect.
on August 23, 2016
Actually made by Anchor Brands in India, not sure where the "euro" part comes in. I used this as a case holder so I can remove snug case backs, but it is described as a movement holder. That claim is beyond the scope of this review.
Pros: Very well made for the money. Pins appear to be nylon, soft but rigid, perfect for the application. Watches can be rotated 90 degrees and pin placement can be adjusted so your watch will better fit the tool if necessary. Notched at the bottom for placement in a bench vise for really stubborn case backs.
Cons: Aluminum tool frame can scratch the watch if care is not taken. Pins are not snug in the holes, so they can fall out and get lost. Nylon pin shape could be tapered at the shoulder which would hold watch in tool more securely under torque. Pins could be taller to better accommodate thick watches. Tool cannot handle watch cases much larger than 42 or 43 mm in diameter.
Overall a good value on a tool for periodic use. The cons are somewhat nit-picky, but prevent the EuroTool from getting a perfect 5 stars. It will work well for the vast majority of watch sizes.
