    Spring bar tool & caseback opener for Seiko Divers?

    Just after a bit of advise please,
    Iím looking for a springbar tool and something to open the back of vintage Seiko dive watches.
    Iíve been using one that came with a watch and really struggle with the fat 2.5mm Seiko bars so would like to invest in something better.
    Iíd also like to check the movement inside one of my watches, would one of the rubber ball things be any good for removing casebacks?
    Thanks in advance,
    Rob

    I donít know if Bry1975 on here still sells them, but he made some brilliant Seiko specific case back openers a while back. Really useful and great quality. The ball might work, but itís very dependent on whoever did it up last.

    The ball's do work but as said it depends how tight the last person put it on.
    As for spring bar tool Bergeon 6767F is probably the best one. £11.74 plus abo3£1.40 postage on eBay from HS Walsh.

    I use a pocketknife with a dull blade to remove spring bars

    Caseback opener. Can use a Jaxa model, but depending on how tight the back is. Might need a case holder to be able to use both hands to open the back
