Style #3C Dumont Tweezers

The Dumont Pattern 3c Tweezers is similar to the #3, but shorter in length. At one time the 3c was the favorite and most popular tweezers for young 16 to 22 year old watchmakers to start using. Keen eyes, small hands and excellent eye hand coordination a possession and gift found among the young enabled them to excel with small fine point tweezers. This also was a time when they had to work on lots a little small mechanical ladies watch movements. Now, trained from the start using 3C tweezers these young watchmakers continue using pattern #3c Tweezers for the next 10-25 years until the eyes and hand eye coordination deteriorates as they age. At this point a switch to Pattern #2 is made. The reply almost many who switched was as they got older they could do less damage using the style 2 now that they got older.

Style #3C, Dumostar Dumont Tweezers, Swiss Made

The Dumostar are made of a super-hard (Rockwell minimum 61) alloy that is magnetic-resistant (anti-magnetic), and acid and rust resistant. I find the hardness of these tweezers worth the cost, as with careful use, they will keep their points almost indefinitely. For a limited time you can save $12.00 on the highest quality, top of the line Dumont Style #3C Dumostar Tweezers.

Style #3C, Carbon Steel Dumont Tweezers, Swiss Made

Carbon Steel at Rockwell 60 is the hardest steel used in the original Dumont tweezer line. The hardest of carbon steel makes the tips more durable than stainless steel. The benefits of carbon steel comes with drawbacks as well. Carbon is stiffer than Stainless, however is more likely to break if stressed, easily magnetized and will rust and stain if used around chemicals or just plain water or even high humidity conditions. Watchmakers by taking proper care of cleaning, oiling and storing of carbon steel tweezers have been know to use the same tweezers for decades without replacing them.
