I have this. It doesn't last long but enough for me to have saved £30-£40
I know it's cheap but I wish they wouldn't make such absolute crap tools, why even bother when they've got the shelf life of a mayfly and could likely cause damage to your watch. I'm all for cost effective tools but there's a point where it can cost you when the tool fails.

I think Gollywood say's it all and with 74% or 2405 buyers rating this as either a 5 or 4 star for £3 it is a deal for the majority of buyers.

It did scratch the back of one of my watches that I couldn't open and when I took it to jewellers for battery change, he had a good laugh

Yeah that's annoying and my point really... if you've got a watch that's a bit used then it won't matter but I wouldn't want to use this on something half decent, Been there before and always always regretted using cheap crap tools so I won't do it. I suppose it's better than no tool kit but use with caution and set expectations accordingly.
One battery change can cost £10
Get the tool and battery will still save you money.
Actually i spent £3x100 and bought an Apple watch. No battery change issues, only battery charge issues
I’ve got one of these and used it to change batteries for many years without issue. Poor quality if you use it for a living but for realistic once a year use its perfectly up to the job

I can confirm this but for £3 wasn't expecting much more to be honest
Works ok...last set I bought was around £2,fitted loads of batteries for family and friends with it.
The blue thing broke so quickly it was hilarious. I ended up buying a metal version of just that specific piece to adjust my watch straps.
Thanks, ordered.
The only bad part about this is the link remover, but other than that it's pretty great. You don't need the link remover to changer the battery, the tool to remove the screw on battery covers is pretty great and won't easily break and is pretty much universal. If you want to change links often then maybe spend £5 on an okay link remover but if not then everything else is fine, I have removed links a few times using it though, it just requires a little more patience. For £3 it's definitely worth a try with your watch, it's kinda fun to do yourself. It's always stupidly cheap though.
Can anyone recommend a decent professional one to remove links?
This is always about this price. I suppose people on here will vote anything hot without checking previous prices!
Can’t believe I just paid £5 getting a link removed in Timpsons.......
Yes the tools aren't good enough to open your own watch shop. But I feel the problem many people have, is that they don't really know how/have experience with watch repairs, then say the tools damaged their watch. I have a very similar low quality set, and have had a few in the day past too. I've worked on several watches without problem. For the money that's fine by me.
Hi does anyone know if this has the clamp thing.I seem to be collecting watches that have almost pressurised backs on them and getting charged £15 everytime a battery goes.
Oh heat added as looks ok for£3
This is great, it is cheap soft metal and given cost of watches that is a good thing. You can't be a brute to use it. Mine has lasted 5 years and easily saved well over £50 with battery changes for me, my family and neighbours too. The tools can be used for other applications I have used them to open old phones too.

Have never used the screwdrivers as they look really poor, better to use one of those £1 screwdrivers with lots of soft bits from poundland.
Bad tradesman blame there tools. Ive had this set for a while now and changed batteries, straps with ease and no damage. Brilliant price and savings over getting jewellers to do the jobs.

I have successfully used the hammer in this kit with the punch and the bracelet holder to remove links. I agree that the blue link remover is utterly useless. It is not difficult. Check the arrows on the bracelet you want to remove links from.

Hilarious
Pin and collar are difficult to remove. Must have saved one £50 with mine.
I have one of these too. Awful quality in that most of the bracelet pin removers have bent or snapped. The plastic link extractor never really worked and the pin bent on the end of it. The pliers are poorly made. The tweezers are comically bad. The case knife if okay, but a bit thickly made. Screwdrivers are terrible. Rotating case wrench is okay.

I'd recommend that everyone have this set! Unless you spent significantly more you won't get appreciably better quality. I use it to open/replace batteries on old auction find watches. For any of my decent watches I wouldn't want my bast'd monkey hands inside them anyways. Battery replacement on quartz and regulating mechanical watches is about as good as you can do with this. For £3 you really can't go too wrong.
