Bergeon spring bar tool

Just got my first Swiss tool. decided to finally fork out a little bit more for a better quality tool. so I bought this Bergeon 7767, and a couple replacement tips. I have to say that it does feel really good quality compared to what I’m used to.

cheers all

Yes, they are high quality. I bought the same tool because I was struggling with the common short spring bar tools on some watches. Bracelet removal can be particularly tricky with a shorty. 

·

I have the same.

For me It's the best brand quality.

You know that tool doesn't work on Asian made watches.

I have used its predecessor (6767) for a while now and I must say it feels vastly superior to the other cheap ones that sometimes come with straps. The tip hasn't worn off one bit!

Mine is the Bergeon 6767-F and it works on my Asian watches.

All due respect, but how do you figure that? spring bars are spring bars. I don’t think them being Asian made makes much of a difference.

I think it was a joke.

BUT!! There is some truth here as well.

I know some Seiko watches, like my Seiko 5 come with drilled lugs and some nasty spring bars that don't have the indentations for the forks on your tool. For those you need the pointy tip which comes on the 7767-F for example (yours has two forks). The tip can be bought separately and then you'll be covered all around 😬

It was meant to be a joke. A spring bar is a spring bar.

Actually I did buy some replacement tips for it as well. it came with a pointed tip for drilled lugs. 

also I legitimately had no idea it was a joke. being autistic i am dense as fluff when it comes to jokes. I usually need some indication to tip me off. so that’s my bad 😅

Sorry about that. I am really bad at noticing tings like that. I usually need some sort of indication to tell. so that’s my bad… woops 😅

Thanks for the tip. Just bought myself one.
