Note on typical distances of notches on case backs
As an example, the 36 mm Sandoz Explorer-like or a 40 mm Sandoz Submariner-like use a distance of 29 mm or 1.41 inches, so this opener will fit. You will have no problem opening 40 mm plus watches. Just make sure the notches look like the one in the sample picture below and the distance between the inside of the notches on the case back are less then 34 millimeters.
The opener has two sides, I simply placed two openers onto the mat to shoot this picture
Steel case opener, depicted to show both bits sides, the wider bits for Polygonal Case Backs* (not recommended) and the smaller bits for Case Backs with Slots (recommended)
*A word of warning: the wider bits of the Steel case opener can open Polygonal Case Backs. But if the case back sits tight, please use a Bergeon 5338-1 F instead! The wider bits are not wide enough to distribute the pressure onto the edges sufficiently if the case back sits too tight and you will leave ugly marks.
As a sample: the typical screwed case back to be opened with this kind of opener. The Sandoz 40 mm Diver in this picture, has a distance of 29 mm between two opposite notches on the case back. So this opener will be able to handle even watches with diameters of plus 40 mm. If you have doubts measure the distance of the notches and compare with the maximum opening distance between the bits, 34 mm
