    Off Topic post Help removing Sinn 556 bracelet.

    I've been enjoying my Sinn 556 on its bracelet for a few months now. I do, however, want to swap the bracelet for a leather strap once again to switch things up. The bracelet is a pain to remove! It seems impossible to remove with my current spring bar tool. I've tried the old floss trick for Seiko watches, but to no avail, so I'm looking here for advice. Thanks in advance.

    I recently bought a used 757 Diapal. It came with the bracelet and also the leather band so I have 2 Sinn tools. The tool Sinn provides isnt very good unfortunately. One end of one of my tools was already snapped off and I managed to break the other one. Its almost like the end is made of Carbide and is very brittle if you use the slightest side force. You also cant find anywhere to get tip replacements for the Sinn tool. I did a bunch of research and ended up buying for $25 a Bergeon Spring Bar Tool. Its very well made and highly regarded. It will serve you much better than the tool Sinn provides.

    Thank you. The tip of my Sinn tool actually broke too. I'll look into the Bergeon Spring Bar tool.
