The SAFEST Way to REMOVE & INSTALL a Rolex Bracelet

Recently it came to my attention that a lot of collectors are reluctant to change out their Rolex bracelet for a different strap, like rubber or leather. At first I assumed it was due to how comfortable and well made its stock configuration is, but later heard some opinions that expressed a fear of causing damage during the swap process. I think changing out straps can really make a watch feel like something new and add a lot of fun to this hobby, so I've made a tutorial that can hopefully be of help to those who share the same concerns. 

I've kept my sub on its bracelet for the first three years, but started to swap it on and off for other options like rubber. At first, I wasn't a fan of the material, but grew to really enjoy how it looks and feels. If anyone was considering swapping out their OEM Rolex bracelet for something else, give it a try!

Dope video man. While I dont know if I will ever afford a Rolex I do know how to change a strap but I definitely did know about about that specific $200 tool. Are there any more affordable "good quality" ones out there for us broke collectors?

Keep the dope vids coming man. Peace.

Enjoyed this one. I’ve yet to get that burgeon tool because I haven’t found a strap that I would like to put on my submariner yet. The bracelet is just fantastic. I just passed my two year mark with it though so it may be time for a change.

I watched the video on the springbar tool before, and for a watch in that price range it is definitely worth it. Again, thanks a lot for this quality content, it's much appreciated.

Great video! I already know how to swap out bracelets but I watched the whole video because it was so entertaining.

Great video. I've been meaning to pick up a Bergeon 7825 for quite some time, but wasn't sure if it was that much better than my 6767. This video convinced me to get one.

Thanks! There are aftermarket options, but I believe in buying once. I cant say if the cheaper ones will last.

Give it a shot! You can always swap back later on

I’ve heard of people picking up cheaper tweezers and then just buying spare Horofix tips, as they’re often made with the same hole patterns. The Horofix tips are supposedly a bit thinner than what you get on most of the unbranded ones, and thus easier to use on some watches with tight tolerances.

I’ve rarely had the need to use anything other than my Bergeron 6767, but I do have one of those unbranded tweezers from eBay so could possibly try it out.
