    I agree with Bry Jon....I've had one for 5-6 years and it has served me very well. And when you need it, nothing else will do. Just make sure you use the right "bits" for the right watch, always going for the biggest that will fit. If you do break a point on one of the bits, the Bergeon replacements sold by Cousins fit. Keep a good downward pressure on the wheel as you turn it, otherwise it will jump out of the case back and you'll score the back. Good buy!
