Only the Best!
Let’s face it, if you’re fixing your own wrist watch, some tools are better than others.
For starters, you’ll probably use the basic watch tools:
- Watch Case Openers
- Watch Case Wrench
- Jeweler’s Screwdrivers
- Jeweler’s Loupe
- Link Removers
- Case Holders
- Watch Case Sealers
- Spring Bar Tools
These are the main tools, as seen here…
And these Tools are HERE:
Now, you could go out and buy all these tools as needed (which works well in you only need 1 item), but if you think you’ll use a few, then I’d suggest you get yourself a watch tool kit.
Tool kit’s often contain the majority of everything listed above (minus a tool or two). They’re great accessories to have over the life of your watch (for you never know when you’ll have to change a battery or add/remove more links).
Just like these cool watch tool kits below:
Those are the best selling tools, and all jewelers use them.
But do buy yourself a 10x loupe (or even a 20x or 30x), because those little links, screws, cotter pins and numbers on batteries tend to get awfully hard to see.
Tool kits are inexpensive enough, and you’ll use them for many fix-er-uppers, like:
- Removing Links
- Opening Watch Cases
- Replacing Spring Bars
- Replacing Watch Straps
- Changing Batteries
- Putting on Metal Bands
- Sealing Watch Cases
- Tightening Links
- Adjusting Stretch Bands
For a few bucks, a kit is the best place to start.
