    Where to buy screwdriver to adjust bracelet?

    I have a SS bracelet that uses tiny screws (probably 2-3mm), which is a first for me. I know these are pretty common in nicer bracelets, but they're new to me. I looked through my home tools, and I have nothing that's suitable for these screws. Any ideas?

    I'd like to stay away from online sources if possible, as I don't want to spend $8 shipping for a $3 item. I also don't want to way 4 days. thanks

    sure. go to harbor freight and buy a set of micro screwdrivers for 99cents.
    sears also has them as does radioshack. I'd go to radioshack though. they have ones that are used on computers and will be small enough. chances are the screw heads on your bracelet are 1.5mm. if you could tell me what watch it is, I can give you the right size.

    Radio Shack would be perfect. I live pretty close to one.

    The bracelet is an aftermarket Seiko Super Oyster. I just measured the screwhead using a cheap stick ruler-- it's 1.5-2mm (hard to be more accurate than that with this ruler).

    I posted on another forum, someone mentioned an eyeglasses store. If Radio Shack fails, I'll give that a shot. Sears and Harbor Freight are a bit far.

    Whatever you get, just make sure that microscrewdriver's head precisely fits the slots of the screws (width and thickness-wise). Otherwise, you will gouge up and distort the fragile slots. If need be, you can use fine grade sandpaper to slightly perfect the screwdriver's head to better fit the slots.

    I've purchase small screwdriver sets from everywhere imaginable! Online jeweler's repair sites, radio shack, home depot, cvs... Lot's of pharmacies sell them for eyeglass repair. Sometimes, depending on the watch I'm using them for, I'll have to do a little bit of machine work. Grinding the head down to size or sharpening the head.

    Just bring your watch to the store and try them out there to see which one fits the best. Radio Shack and Home Depot have decent selections.
