Noob Introduction needing some help!

Hello everyone, I recently found this forum and need some advice/help. First I love watches, currently I can't afford any new ones so I've decided as a hobby I want to start tinkering with the ones I own. I've always been fascinated by watches but can never seem to be on time haha. Here's a picture of my current collection



So I need a little help. A lot of the ones I currently own are Snap Backs and I've wanted to get into them. I bought a case knife from Amazon for pretty cheap and found the blade to be too large to get under the tab's of a lot of my watches to open them. Do you guys have any relatively low cost recommendations? I've done some research and found 3 options that I was wondering if you guys could steer me in the right direction, especially if you've had any experience using them. I'll start from the cheapest then go up.

The first is a Bergeon 4932 case knife. This looks remarkably similar to the one I got from Amazon, just with Bergeon quality? I just wonder if it's machined much finer than the one I already have to get into the tiny tabs because I can't afford to buy more items that don't fit my needs. $27 Bergeon 4932 case knife

The second is a Bergeon 4755 pry type. This looks like the edge is finely honed and would get underneath the tabs better? $32 Bergeon 4755

And finally the Bergeon 6987 G. This looks just like the 4932 blade, just with a higher end handle. At $65 plus shipping I'm reluctant to get this because I could buy another watch for that amount haha. Bergeon 6987 G

If anyone has any advice or suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it. I do want quality tools but $75 with shipping sounds steep for a case knife, regardless how fancy it is. I look forward to your responses and thanks in advance!

Welcome to PMWF! I use one like the 4932, but it's a wenger. >>
