Top 10 Best Watch Repair Tool Kits

10 Best Watch Repair Tool Kits

A watch is a delicate piece of kit that can contain up to hundreds of tiny parts. With that said, in order to work on a watch, you need the proper tools to do so.

A watch repair tool kit is something that should be in the possession of every watch enthusiast and collector. Whether you want to adjust your watch bracelet or try to learn the basics of watchmaking, a great watch repair tool kit is the place to start. These kits include the most important and basic tools you may need to repair or adjust your watch.

To make it clear, there is a huge difference between watch repair tool kit and watch repair tool kits. With that said, to begin, you need to make it clear for what you need the watch repair tool kit for. If you are just a beginner and just want to experiment and use the tools occasionally, you may not need to buy the most professional tool kits. On the other hand, if you are going to use the tool kit frequently and for more expensive watches, it is probably a good idea to buy higher quality tool kits. As said, there is a huge difference between the cheapest and the higher end tool kits. It’s not just the price that is the difference.

Overall, higher-end tool kits include high-quality tools that have higher precision and ultimately do the job better. Firstly, higher quality toolsets have a better quality which does break or wear out as easily. Oftentimes, the screwdrivers are the ones that wear out the fastest. In fact, it is not uncommon that the screwdriver head breaks. This is less likely to happen with the higher end screwdrivers. Furthermore, for the more basic watch repair sets, more tools may even be made in plastic, which makes them far less durable and long-lasting.

Regardless if you are a beginner or a professional, you want your tools to last. Unless, of course, you buy them to use them one time only. In our opinion, it is an investment well worth the money to invest in higher quality tools. But this decision is completely up to you, and this is why we have listed both quality and more affordable alternatives.

Also, affordable tool kits tend to include fewer tools. This can be problematic as it may mean that you do not have all tools necessary to get the job done.

What does a watch repair tool kit include?

What is included in a watch repair tool kit varies depending on which you buy. Ultimately, it will also depend on what you plan to use your tool kit for, since, different tasks require different tools.

Here are the tools that are often included in a watch repair tool kit:

Screwdrivers

Screwdrivers are included in all watch repair kits as they are the most important and commonly needed when working with a watch.

Since watches tend to use screws of different sizes and variants, you naturally need screwdrivers of different variants and sizes. Good kits usually have anti-magnetic screwdrivers as magnetism is extremely negative for a watch’s accuracy.

Loupe

A loupe is usually included in a watch repair kit. A loupe will help you see small parts up close and in better detail. Not all kits include a loupe, though. 

It does, however, come in handy when you are working with extremely small parts and details.

Tweezers

Tweezers are always included in watch repair kits. The tweezers have several different usage areas. Ideally, the tweezer should be anti-magnetic, just like all other tools.

Spring bar tool

If you are working on a watch, you need to be able to remove and attach the bracelet. This is done by removing the spring bars, and to do this, you need a spring bar tool. As such, a spring bar tool is almost always included in a watch repair kit. There are many different spring bar tools of different quality, as demonstrated in our guide about spring bar tools. Naturally, the better quality the watch repair kit, the better the spring bar tool will be.

Case back opener

If you are going to work on the watch’s movement, you need to be able to open the watch’s case back in order to access it. To be able to remove the case back, you need a case back opener. There are many different case back openers, but this one is not always included in the kits. This is why you may need to either look for one that includes it or buy one separately.

Link remover

A common tool that is included in a watch repair tool kit is a link remover. This tool helps you remove links from your watch bracelet and thus adjust its size. Different bracelets are adjusted in different ways, and some are adjusted with pins, whereas others are adjusted with screws. Generally, the link remover adjusts. Bracelets which uses pins, but it varies.

Watchmaker’s hammer

A watchmaker’s hammer is often included in a watchmaker’s kit. The hammer is used for, obviously, hammering different things, in particular screws and pins

Apart from the above tools, a watchmaker’s tool kit can include an array of other tools. Therefore, it is helpful to identify the tools that you think you need for your coming projects, and then take this into consideration when buying your tool kit.
