As a watch geek we all just love to change the look of our beloved. Live is a but dull if you always eat potatoes isn’t it? But we don’t like to go to a watchmaker to change these straps. Like real man we all know how to do this by ourselves. In English there is a proverb: "a bad workman always blames his tools". The same proverb exists in many languages, but perhaps a more satisfying (and constructive!) version is the Dutch one: "Goed gereedschap is het halve werk" – "good tools are half the work".
We can all build houses if we have some proper tools. Same counts for changing straps. The WRIST ICONS watch tool makes live lot easier.
This unique heavy duty, travel size strap changing tool measures approximately 57.5 mm and features hidden tips ideal for travel. If you travel and pack your Bergeon strap tool, you might damage your luggage.
How does this tool work? This stainless steel tool is kept save within a small leather WRIST ICONS pouch. You take the tool out of this pouch and unscrew the ends. The two end caps screwed off will reveal the tips of the tool. One is a thin fork for changing spring bars and the other is a pin bracelet links or swapping straps for older watches with lug holes (Rolex used to make watches with lug holes for instance until 2002). In order to use the tool, you simply replace the tips with the ends pointing out, then screws the end caps back onto the tool to secure the tips.
And, because you can never be too discreet, it comes with a leather case with WRIST ICONS logo under the flap and the JPM logo on the back.
