When you have the right tools for the job, you’ve already won half the battle. When you’re removing a link from your wristwatch or changing the battery out, having the tools is close to 90 percent of the battle. If you have them it’s a breeze — and if you don’t, you’re going to mess up that shiny timepiece.
Kits like this one run around $34, about the cost of one link removal and a battery change, so the kit pays for itself with one or two uses. The tool set includes five screwdrivers (four regular and one Phillips), a small hammer, pop-up case opener, spring bar remover, two push pin removers, and a screw-type link remover.
Whatever the cost, it definitely beats shuffling around the mall trying to get your watch right again.
