Spring Bar Tools

   

$22.95
First-Quality Spring Bar Tool

This is the best spring bar tool on the market. Max Sussman, who gave me a sample many years ago (1984-85?), discovered it. I did not think much of it at first, and it spent about a year in my desk. One day a customer came in and wanted help removing bars from a Seiko Divers Watch. We tried everything, and then I remembered that this tool was in my desk. Within seconds we had the spring bars removed and I have never used another tool since. It took me about three years to convince Bergeon to sell this tool, while the guy from India was ready to copy it the first time I showed him the tool. It comes with one tip that is reversible: a small fork on one end and a pin pusher on the other. The other tip is a large fork, which is the most useful end for removing spring bars quickly on leather straps and is the end which will remove the bars on Seiko rubber divers bands. The small fork is for grabbing spring bars for the backside of metal bands. Bergeon is not the Swiss maker of this tool, however Bergeon sells this item by the number 6111.

There is no doubt among the users of this tool the it is the best spring bar tool to buy. I have been using spring bars tools for over 40 years now and no other tool is even worthy of your consideration. Do not be fooled by the claims of those who simply never used this tool. Here are some comments of real users: "The small fork is exactly the same size on the FB-504 (6111) as the AF17.450/BERG-6767-F, which measures 1.20 mm; the pin is exactly the same size on each. The advantage of the 6111 is that you can get the larger spade fork in addition to the pin & small fork tips. I don't believe it's an option for the other model. The 6111 tips are double-ended, with a pin on one end and a fork on the other, which may help you decide. The collets lock the tip in place, while the other tool's tips screw in. I have both, by the way. I use the 6111 99% of the time. Sometimes you need to use two at the same time, which is why I have another."
Another person writes, "I've owned the 6111 (FB-504) for years and love it, I've currently got the small fork on one end and the small pin on the other, it's a very useful tool. The large fork is useful for pushing straps out of the way in order to get to the spring bar flanges."

"Watchmakers Tip" when faced with a design that requires both end of the spring bars tip to be removed at the same time. Simply remove one end first and block the tip from going back into the hole with a piece of paper and then proceed to remove the tip on the out side so you can now remove the bracelet.

First-Quality Bergeon 6111 Spring Bar Tool With Bergeon's Name Stamped On It

This is the exactly the same tool as the FB-504, which now sells for an unbelievable low price of $22.95 and made at the same factory in Switzerland. The only thing different is this tool has the name Bergeon Stamped on, comes in a yellow Bergeon box and cost $37.94 instead of $22.95 This tool is for those who have to have tools stamped with the Bergeon name and wants the yellow box. Please be aware that others might sell this Bergeon 6111 spring bar tool and call it the Bergeon tool, however it does not have the Bergeon name or part number stamped on it and does not come in the Famous Yellow Bergeon Box. Nickel-plated and knurled handle. Length : 140 mm.

Standard Original Bergeon 3153 Black Body Spring Bar Tool

I think this tool is a waste of time and money. Sure this was state of the art 50 years ago; still some people have yet to be enlightened so we still sell this Swiss made tool. You will not see me wasting my time trying to use this tool, but that shouldn't stop you from trying it, I just might be wrong. It's just that I've been replacing straps for 30 years now.

The diameter of the metal near the Fine Fork is the same measurement as those found on the better more popular FB-504 tool for spring bar removing, which measures 1.20 mm.
