No regrets, would buy again if I lost it.
on 20 May 2013
First of all please note I am no pro, just a guy who likes doing stuff with my hands and who got tired of paying the absurd fees to do small, 2 minute things at the shops.
I have three Seiko watches, for some reason the pins keep bending and I need to get them replaced at the shops. This takes 5 minutes but I still get charged an amount (that in my humble opinion is) too high.
I also needed to take out some links from my watches (lost weight recently) so I picked up this kit.
The quality of this kit's plastic pieces will immediately tell you that this is NOT for professionals. Lets just say its a bit cheap, but considering how much you paid for the entire kit that is to be expected, and value for money is still fantastic.
I also picked up some watch spring pins from that "very famous auction site" for £2 (with postage).
Just to be sure I loaded youtube in my browser and sat through some quick tutorials, with that under my belt it was eezy-peezy to change the pins as well as take out links. The first watch took me 20 mins, by the 2nd watch I was a pro and did it in just over 5!
Kit comes with a few pieces that I have no idea what its meant for, but the pieces I used did the job really really well.
Would buy this again in a heartbeat if I lost it. Totally recommended.
