    BB58 bracelet screw size

    Hi everyone

    What size driver do I need for the screws on the BB58 links please? Itís strange because Iíve been searching everywhere and nobody seems to have a definitive answer, with opinions ranging from 1 to 1.8mm

    Thanks
    Chris

    No Idea the exact measurements but a 1.5mm screw works great. It's a bit smaller than the standard 1.6mm Rolex screws so you may want to do a 1.4mm if you're planning on using a precision hollow ground screwdriver

    Thanks. I’ve read similar experiences but still don’t have an actual fact! Thank you though I’m not having a go.

    As with a previous poster it’s not 1.6mm for sure. Smaller, but not by very much. e.g. not 1.2mm. If I get over to my toolkit today I’ll pull out the screwdriver I used to resize my BB58 bracelet and check the size.

    Thanks guys. Really strange that such a popular watch and nobody seems to know a definitive answer. Literally nobody has an answer and I've now read the WHOLE internet!

    I used my 1.4mm Bergeon screwdriver - was a perfect fit.

    Re: BB58 bracelet screw size

    I posted the same question in the past but no definitive answer so far. In the end I used an 1.4.

    Does anyone see an issue with using a regular V tip screwdriver instead of the T-shaped ones used by Rolex/Tudor? Is there a risk of damaging the screws?

    Strange isn’t it. Maybe I’ll ask Tudor. Good luck getting an even more detailed answer!

    No, it's not strange. It's 1.4 - it's a perfect fit.
