    The one on top of the page is what I use on my watches. However, I would get it at www.mywatchmaker.net
    The Ofrei site will charge alot for shipping.

    Re: bracelet tools

    i use two different bergeon spring bar tools (one of them is a 6767F, the only one that i could find that was small enough to fit the breitling springbars), a bergeon bracelet holder (to easily remove the screws from my breitling bracelet), a small screwdriver set (again, for my breitling bracelet), a pin removal tool (to easily remove the pins from my omega seamaster bracelet), and some other small misc tools. before anybody asks, i got the box from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

    you asked which is easiest to use. it depends on what you are doing to the bracelet... removing the bracelet (springbars)? taking apart the bracelet held by pins? taking apart a bracelet held by screws? something else? generally, though, if you are just removing a bracelet from the case, i think any standard springbar tool is pretty simple to use.

    I use the 1st tool pictured, plus the red horotec tool and a full set of af screwdrivers and a base set for lug screw removal. The more stable you can get the bracelet, the more leverage you can apply for stubborn screws and pins.

    Re: bracelet tools

    This is what I use to reduce the bracelet size.

    It worked, but next time I'll use a blade made to cut metal.
