I read a post the other day, i think Martins ? were he mentioned the difficulty in removing one of his watch hands and using a couple of small screw drivers.

I often find especially with the divers that the hour hand can be so close to the dial that they can not be taken off with the Presto type puller and this is were i find these Levers great, i use them as often as the Presto.

Those look like they would make nice "Olive Forks" too in a pinch. ;D

Seriously, they would be indispensible when needed, good tip.

Tiger,


What brand of lifter are you using? I, too, have needed the lever-type lifter, but never wanted to pay the high price for Bergeon, and don't want to buy junk, either.


Thanks,
Myles

I was lucky Myles a watch maker was closing down and i bought all his hand tools, by that i mean his tools for removing and setting hands.

Presumably you should also place something (plastic ?) between the lifters and the dial to avoid damaging it.
