    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have a decent number of watches and am always looking to expand my collection. I figured, well, why am I going to keep going to a jeweler to get my bracelets fitted? Why can't I just do it myself? Seems simple enough...

    Well, this thing broke literally within 3 minutes of taking it out of its packaging. It seemed sturdy enough, but the second I tried to pop open a springbar the tip broke off. What a piece of garbage. Maybe it was my amateur-ish technique, but judging from the general consensus on Amazon, poor quality control seems to be the norm with this product. Shop around and pay a little extra for a premium tool.

    I accidentally ordered two of these, which allows me insight into the consistency of the product manufacture - which explains the very different reviews here. Neither of mine were of great quality, but they differed significantly - so perhaps there's a good production line too! First one has a very poor quality 'large V' design head, and threads on both ends are very poor making it impossible to secure the head without using pliers (and a lot of torque for a poor quality item). The second had decent threads on both ends, but the 'small v' head was distorted (one side half the length of the other).

    I purchased this (these unfortunately) to try to deal with a particularly difficult Casio where the pin fits to rubber, holding a rubber band - which needs to be pressed very firmly into place. I have never had issues adjusting bands or removing and refitting bands - but needed a special tool to try to resolve this for this watch. I did, finally, manage to get the pin located - however I required sufficient force to have removed the last sign of the other half of the 'small v' head - it was a use once experience. It is asserted somewhere in this thread that if you are using force, you are doing something wrong - well I agree and disagree as this watch, and apparently some Seiko rubber designs both need incredible force to align/place the pins. If you have a regular situation, and you get a decent 'copy' of the item, it will likely serve the purpose and is cheap. I could not find a good alternative without going up to a $30 tool, which was not warranted for a $70 watch.

    Good luck.

    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.
