Default Spring Bar Tool, Bergeon 6825, anyone use them ?

I have always used the Bergeon 6767 but often looked at the 6825 but the price has put me off, anyone use them ?

I wonder how they are removing a rubber strap from the likes of a 6309-704X ?

Have not used one, but on a rubber strap you have to compress both sides of the strap at once which is going to take alot of squishing to get both ends of the springbar to compress. I think this tool is designed for metal bracelets .

This makes perfect sense for bracelets, and as you are unlikely to slip and mark the case it would be an invaluable tool for expensive watches (thinking rolex etc..)

What made me think about the tool was when I was fitting the NOS Omega bracelet to my newly restored MK11 Speedmaster, almost made me sweat !!

Looks like you answered your initial question that this expensive piece of tooling is definitely worth the money.
