    Rolling eyes Omega Speedmaster Professional - Changing Straps

    Greetings All,

    Thought I would just post this here and let you guys help out a new speedy pro owner. Straight to the point, I want to try and change straps/ bracelets on my speedy pro with hesalite on my own but contemplating on whether using the spring bar tool which came in the Omega presentation box is good enough? Or do I need to buy something else for the job?

    Thanks!

    Should be good enough. I actually used a generic tool I already had instead of the Omega one.

    I am sure the omega tool is good enough. I mean seriously, bergeon makes the best strap changing tools and they only cost 20 bucks or so. Strap tools are not high end complex machines.

    I think the majority of Omega owners find the included springbar tool quite adequate. However, I happened to have purchased a Bergeon tool for my JLC watch, that did not include a tool, before I purchased my Speedmaster so that is the tool I use.

    I bought a cheap nato strap (<$10) once before and it came with a strap changing tool. If that’s good enough for every single one of my watches, including the speedy, the one that came with the speedy should also be good enough. Just a hunch since I’ve not actually used mine.

    I will say, however, that my Bergeon 6111(actually an Otto Frei FB-504) has a larger fork on one end that makes changing leather straps a lot easier than using a small or mediun size fork.

    My generic one (which came with the purchase of an inexpensive strap) looks very similar to this. Small fork on one and and a large one on the other.

    Not sure of the brand or specific name of the tool, but it has a strap tool at each end so you can line em up, and just squeeze and take out the spring bar with one motion, both sides...pretty neat

    That said, I use the omega one that came with my speedy also.
