A handy set considering all the watches I keep purchasing from this site. £3.97 delivered from a seller with loads of positive feedback. Alternatively £4.99 as an add on item direct from Amazon.

Noticed the third party sellers after initially listing as the add on item, so expired and picked the most trustworthy seller at the cheapest price
Bought one of these sets years ago and basically I have put all my own batteries ever since. Replaced straps too. Ive added to it by purchasing a press for putting on back. Cut myself badly with the red handled blade. My fault. Use a piece of leather or something to hold the watch as you prise off the back. Great bit of kit. Dont expect to be quality for that price just functional.

Got one for £3.30 delivered from another seller, only 14 left in stock now :

I have this kit. Fyi it's cheaper on eBay.

That said, the pin and strap tool is the only thing in the kit that is actually worth owning and a better example can be bought separate on eBay for a quid.

Every other tool is bad. The tweezers are terrible, the case back tool might work if you are desperate, the case popper knife is unusable as it is soft and blunt. The pliers are bad the screwdrivers are bad. The pin extractor is bad, should work a few times though.

Ditto the red tool of death
I have one of these, you wouldn't use it on an expensive watch as previously mentioned they are understandably not great quality being so cheap. But on cheaper or typically throwaway watches, grab yourself a pack of watch batteries from the pound shop and save yourself a fortune by changing your own batteries in 2 minutes. 1 batt change is all it takes and this kit pays for itself 2 or 3 times over. I've done about 10 battery changes now for under a fiver and that sure beats a tenner or so at the local places each time.
In defense of this item let me say ive had it at least 5 years. The pin extractor is flimsy but still pushing out strap pins with ease.The tweezers are good enough to pick up watch batteries. Dont pick them or handle them with your hands as you may discharge them. The red knife unless theve changed the design is solid with a sharp edge that will fit in the tiny prizing hole that most watches have unless they are screw type Hold the watch in a leather cloth in case you slip. I use the mallet all the time and I did but a separate set of mini screwdrivers but these do work. If you have a touch like an elephant this set is not for you. With the £3.97 you can buy some chicken nuggets. If like me your light handed....go for it

So it's got your wholehearted recommendation then?

If there's a simpsons nearby, they charge I think £2.50 for watch battery changes. Lots of watch batteries are not in the cheap sets you buy for one or two pounds
good price but this is a pants product, i bought a couple of years ago ,dont waste your money, if needs be buy a few bit you need at better quality, the back opener could not get under the back, the pin remover block snapped. a waste of time and money unfortunately :-(
