Wonderful story. I’m glad you’ll get to continue enjoying that watch.

Would be really interested in seeing some of those videos you made!

Awesome

commented on SNK style watch ·

Not bad!

commented on Bergeron Casback Opener ·

Yes. In use, these balls apply friction and pressure to the caseback, allowing them to be screwed in or unscrewed.

They are less likely to work on casebacks that are tightly secured, but are generally quite functional.

There’s nothing special about the Bergeon-branded one as far as I’m aware. Others should work just as well.

Absolutely fantastic response. Excellent points, all very true!

I disagree. WatchCrunch is full of people with varied tastes in styles and brands. I check the forum every day, and I can say with total confidence that it is not overrun with high-end-first hobbyists. I respect where you’re coming from, but interest/appreciation for watches is for anyone- just as you said! Don’t let the presence of expensive watches taint your enjoyment.
