Hey Derek, it looks like a simplified version of the tool the watchmakers at Omega use. I've actually handled the genuine tool. It's nice... I want one! The entire area that comes in contact with the bezel assembly should be made of plastic, or other soft material, and NOT bare metal. It's hard to tell what this tool is made of in that crucial contact area.Is this a universal bezel remover? This would be a great tool for the DIY WIS.
Now is there an equal tool for putting the bezel back onto the watch?
Are you selling these aluminum tools?Hi there,
The Aluminium tool wont mark the case in general use and as the sides are straightsided works perfectly well. The rubber neoprene insert on the Omega tool looks good but I don't know how hard wearing the insert is as haven't tried the $1000 tool set.
The Omega tool certainly looks a work of art, I had the tool made so that I could remove the omega bezel and couldn't afford the $1000 Omega set would also have her shipped over to the UK so more cost etc etc.
The 6082 or 7075 Al is a good grade of material hasn't marked the DLC'D Omegas I've worked on yet, but do get your point about using a tool with rubber/neoprene I haven't tried that route yet but will.
I'm just curious which countries are, ah, "chicom countries"?Of course. If there was a market for these things I guarantee I could give their price an absolute thrashing, and I can get custom urethane parts molded no problem. I've done it plenty of times in the past. If you haven't already guessed this, I'm a machinist. (I also do sales/estimating and purchasing for my shop). They should be embarrassed selling that tool for that price. I bet I could get awfully near that $200 price with an order for 10 or 15 of these. And they are mass producing them! This thing is a prime example of why all the manufacturing work in the U.S. and Britain has been driven overseas to Chicom countries.
