ok, but not very durable Jul 27, 2007
By J. Palmer
This tool is ok, it is good for removing straps. I bought it to remove a numebr of straps. After a week of use, maybe ten or so straps, the pointy end was worn down. For the price it is ok but you might want to order two if you are doing lots of work - also the shipping prices for such a small item seemed exessive.

Need to change or resize watch straps/bracelets? Get this. Jul 09, 2007
By S. Kosloske
I don't understand the lousy reviews for this product. It's been copied many times, and is pretty much a standard for watch repair, some brands even include one in their boxes.
Can't beat the price. Buy it!

Fragile and Cheap - Broke the first time I used it. Feb 22, 2009
By Daniel J. Benjamin
"Fan of the Simple and Elegant Technologies of By-Gone Eras"
I purchased this tool for a single purpose - to remove the springpins from my Omega Seamaster and change the OEM bracelet to an aftermarket leather strap.
The tool has a forked end specifically for this purpose, which may work on a hollow-link bracelet common on cheaper watches. However, on a high-end watch which utilized solid end link (SEL) bracelets, this tool is too large and brittle to do the job. In two tries, I broke off bother of the forked teeth, rendering the tool useless. It was extremely shocking how little torque the tool tolerated. It virtually shattered. I was later able to do the job quite well with the ridiculously-thin edge of an X-acto knife... which did chip, but didn't shatter as this 'tool' did.
The pin-removal tool on the other end functioned as expected, although for the safety of one's watch, a vise-type tool is preferred.
The millimeter scale markings on the side of the tool were a pleasant surprise, as they are difficult to see in the online photo, and I wasn't expecting them. They are good for quickly finding the correct distance between case lugs for band sizing.
All in all, this would be a nice tool, but is made of very-low quality unhardened metal. Inexpensive is great, but there is definitely a threshold -- the tool must still be able to function, which this one does not. It may work alright on a watch with hollow end links... but my testing was limited by the tool's shattering the first time I used it. A version with a finer forked end made of hardened tool-grade steel would be much better.

Flimsy , poor construction. May 28, 2007
By Andy Kauffman
I received the product in a timely manner and I was eager to put it to use. The "pin" side immediately bent when I gently used it remove a loose pin from my watchband. I tried to gently bend it straight again and the pin just broke off. I think the steel used to build this tool is of very poor, cheap quality. Oh well, you get what you pay for.
