Bergeon 7825 Spring Bar Tweezer - HT7825
About this deal
I will say that it’s worth it when really you do need it... it can really keep the frustration levels down. But for everything else, the 6767 is much easier to use.
Using the Bergeon 7825 spring bar tool, removing spring bars will be a breeze. Plus, you will minimize the risk of slipping or scratching your watch. It has replaceable tips as well, and it looks like they offer a more ergonomic tip now as an option: https://www.esslinger.com/replacement-c ... -tweezers/ Thanks for that, another option at a better price than Bergeon, though it looks like it could not handle a Seiko fat style (tips are too narrow). A pity they don't also make a 1.3mm size so that one could interchange with the 1mm. Maybe a future? I would need to pay EU VAT etc on import from Esslinger so it is not a low cost option, but at least the tips are fair price, unlike Bergeon!
These two are very competitively priced and not sure which to get between them... any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Bergeon is perhaps the best watch tool manufacturer in the world. It is known around the globe and manufactures tools for the watchmakers of some of the most prestigious watch brands in the world. With that in mind, Bergeon’s tools are among the best in the world.The tool itself is quite utility- there's not much to make a hash of, but the critical piece is the quality of the tips. I change out the cheap tips for Bergeon ones which gives you the utility of the tool but with high tool-strength quality tips that are fine enough to get at most spring bars but strong enough to not deform or break and all at a good price The tips that come with the cheap pliers tend to be made of soap/cheese/jelly
Problem with tips breaking may have to do with spring tension. Some spring bars have weak springs, but if you run into one with a strong spring. Using tweezers is going to be a little more difficult. Plus keeping those small tips centered.Benarus, Helson, Kobold, Baliha’i, Ocean7, Spinnaker, Boschett, Technomarine, Steeldive, Citizen, RGMT, NauticFish, Parnis, H2O Watch, CX Charmex, Korsbek, Armida, Cronos, Kazimon, TimeFactors, Helberg, Phoibos, Ocean Crawler, Borealis, Nautis, Berny, Helberg, Orient, Pagani Design, Orient Star, Breitling, Seiko, Bulova, Deep Blue, Pantor, Alpina, Omega Cheers chaps, thanks for all your input, I’ve had a moment of clarity, my watch buying days have come to an end for the foreseeable (unless a 14060m sub turns up ) So was thinking to start investing in some more expensive strap options. Considering I intend to be swapping straps on my Rolex, Omega, Tudor and Bremont watches why am I looking for a cheap option. I will be looking at the Bergeon range, now the research for the best one/price begins
