About this deal
Overall, this spring bar tool exceeds my expectations when it comes to quality and ease of use. It will no doubt last a lifetime, especially since the tips can be replaced if they become worn out. The saying “You get what you pay for” is perfectly fitting for the 6767-F; the cheap spring bar tools don’t compare to the quality you get by spending a little more on this Swiss made Bergeon. If watchmakers have trusted Bergeon for over 2 centuries, I was confident that their spring bar tool would be a perfect addition to my small collection of basic watch tools. Versions of the 6767 Spring Bar Tool
The one-piece tips are machined from hardened tempered steel and are made to the Swiss level of quality we’ve come to expect. They are flawlessly finished with no burrs or rough edges unlike the lower quality alternatives on the market. Both the fork and pin tips have a long threaded base to screw into the body. The long threads are secured deep into the handle body to ensure the tips are able to withstand the high torque and pressure need to remove strong spring bars.This review will cover my experience with the Bergeon 6767-F spring bar tool and how it compares to lower cost brands available online at a fraction of its price.

I agree with the review, but watch out for breaking the pointed tip. I have broken two of them (thanks for the link so I can now buy one :), so I think I need to be very gentle and careful with those.

If you will be removing heavy leather or rubber straps, the wider forked tip on the 6767-S will allow you to push the strap away from the lugs to give you access to the spring bar. The wider fork will also help prevent damaging leather or rubber by not digging into the material as much as a finer fork would.Changing your watch strap or bracelet is one of those relatively simple operations that anyone should be able to do at home. With a little practice and know-how, it’s possible to learn how to change most straps, but there’s one tool that makes the job much easier: the humble spring-bar tool.
