  2. Tegimented 856 UTC Bracelet Sizing - Problem/Questions

    Sinn
    Hi Forum, I'm trying to size the bracelet on my brand new Sinn 856 UTC, I'm using the screwdriver provided with the watch (flat head screwdriver). While trying to remove one of the screws, the screwdriver's tip bent pretty easily, at the same time the bracelet's screw top got a bit stripped...
  3. Is there a Special Tool for Removing ORIS Bracelet Link Pins?

    Oris
    I have obtained 3 Oris watches recently, all with metal bracelets. I have always used a watch repair kit from Amazon but when I first tried to remove a link from my Artelier, which is chromed out so I want to be careful, my pin got stuck after I really tried to shove that sucker in there hard...
  4. Amateur botches bracelet removal, what now??

    Books, Tools, Winders & Other Watch Accessories
    Here's a pathetic story for you. Feel free to make fun of me, but only if you can give constructive advice too! For years I had only one watch. The band was attached with spring bars. I learned how to remove and replace them. It was easy. Now I have a second watch. It comes with a bracelet...
  5. Tools - what are they?

    Watchmaking
    I recently bought a job lot of retired watchmaker tools. Impulse buy!. I have some that I have no idea what they are for though I can guess a few? Anyone willing to humour (humor sic) a novice and tell me? Cheers
  6. Tools needed for replacing glass?

    Watchmaking
    Hi all, I have a couple affordables (Casio, Rotary) with a cracked glass and I wanted to try to replace the glass myself. I am really not worried if they're still water resistant after replacing the glass, I just want to get them "wearable" again, and having them fixed professionally costs...

  8. Sherline Watchmaking Purchase Decision - Looking for advice

    Watchmaking
    Good day all and a Happy New Year, I recently posted an update on my ongoing "wooden horology" project depicting the machining capabilities I have presently achieved.

  9. I need ID of some watchnaking tools

    Watchmaking
    Hi everybody, I rarely come to this sub-forum. I usually hang out at f11. :) For some time now I would like to buy some more serious watchmaking tools. Last year I got some nice watchmaking screwdrivers, now I stumbled upon a local ad. I can see a staking set but I can't identify the...
  10. Tools for repair/servicing Soviet watches

    Russian watches
    Thanks to being a weirdo collector, I now have a bunch of old Soviet watches, some of which I picked up at markets in Poland and Ukraine, and some of which I got on eBay. Woohoo! But now I'd like to service them, and I've never serviced watches anymore. It looks like some bizarro Chinese...
  11. Bergeon 6767-S or 6767-F? Which one do I need? and do I need anything else to go with it?

    Books, Tools, Winders & Other Watch Accessories
    Hi, I've never changed a strap before and don't know which one of these tools I should get to do the job? I'd also like to be able to adjust bracelets on my watches - which tool would I need to be able to do that? Could I use one of these or do I require something different in addition...

    Hi everyone, I am not sure if the Russian watch forum is the best place to put this thread but to is the only one I go to at the moment.

  17. Favorite tool for removing pins in bracelet links?

    Books, Tools, Winders & Other Watch Accessories
    If I'm not mistaken, there are 3 types of tools. One I refuse to use; the other two I've quickly returned. Mallet + Vise - WUS likes these but I don't; I'm not Jeremy Clarkson, I don't think a hammer fixes everything Pin-Press - worked perfectly on two of my watches, busted every pin in the...
