What is in the pockets of a Watch
Collector or Watch Fanatic?
A couple of Kits for different occasions
1. "The Minimal Kit!" - I do not leave the house without the case opener knife and the loupe
2. The "Flea Market Kit" - extended by a mini case back opener (China Made)
3a. The before 911 "General Watch Tools Travel Kit" - extended by a SWISS TECH mini tool
3b. The after 911 "General Watch Tools Travel Kit"
4. "The Mini-Watchmaker's Tool Kit"
911 forced me to remove all the watchmaker's tool from the Wenger's Watchmaker knife, thus I created this mini watch travel tool box, total weight 32 grams. So far no security check has ever even asked me what those are, so I trust they can go with me wherever my travels take me
5. The A&F Bracelet sizing tool
When I am traveling, I will carry this little very helpful tool with me, the A&F bracelet sizing tool. If I had only found that one a lot earlier, I could have saved me lots of sweat, scratches and time! You simply turn the spindle and push the link bar out, a lot softer then "hammering" especially stuck link bars out. In addition I will carry the block and pushers from the Taiwan Made bracelet sizing tool and all the bits from the Watchmaker's knife and a loupe on holder, so much nicer to have both hands available when working!
