Thread: Cheapo Bergeon adjustable spring bar tool - any good?

  1. #1

    Cheapo Bergeon adjustable spring bar tool - any good?

    Had anyone tried the ebay type adjustable springbar tools that are copies of the far more expensive Bergeon ones. If so are they any good?

    iíd only ever use the bergeon tools on a watch worth more than £1k, youíd be surprised the damage you can do to a watch with a cheap springbar or screwdriver, itís not worth the £10-£15 your gonna save

    The weak point seems to be the tips. If you replace the tips with Burgeon ones they are not bad at all.

    This is the one I use, thought it was the one recommended by the majority on here.

    That's the one I've always used. For anyone buying I'd recommend also getting some extra tips as spares and in different sizes. When I removed the bracelet from the PRS-68 I recently bought the supplied fork tip was too large, but the much finer spare I have did the job perfectly.

    Yes that's what I thought you meant. They are very good if you replace the forks.
