Default My new acquisition

After having three really nasty casebacks in a row I finally got one of these. What a delight. Took care of the first one like a lightsaber through butter ...
I think I should have got one way earlier. Anyhow here she is, a nice Chinese version from ebay.


And here is one of the casebacks that didn’t want to get really closed :-) It lost, I won.

Nice P. Certainly saves on elbow grease.

Your late to the party Phil but better late than never if you do even a little tinkering a Big Bertha is a must imo, I like easy and these make life easy

to do really tight backs and Rolexes for me

Thanks guys, you are all right. Jerry you really need one, come on - you got that time grapher but no Big B? Todd, it certainly helps saving. Elbow grease, power, nerves and case backs from getting scratched from slipping tools. We should all listen to John, he is the ambassador for the Big Bertha, she really makes life easier.

I always regret not getting these over the bergeon, it's nice to have, and possibly better built, but these look pretty good for the money. Nice score Phil.

Thanks fellas. I am totally convinced that the Bergeon beats this one without any question asked. But my Chinese Version is totally enough for my claims and I have to say that it looks and feels quite good. Working with her is very smooth and easy, the bits and pieces do fit without any play, I was more than positive surprised about the quality. I paid around € 100,- ,shipping included, which really isn’t that much looking at what I got.

I think I’m going to have to get one of those ... my vintage LG Openall has lost its mojo of late.

That said, if I had a time machine I think my first act might be to travel back and slap whoever invented that Rolex caseback with the gazillion little recessed teeth. I truly hate those things.

congrats Phil - nice acquisition. Feels kinda weird when we spend money on a watch related item that isn't a watch, right?
