Bergeon 6111 Watch Spring Bar Tool


Check it out at


The Bergeon 6111 is the only spring bar tool most of us will ever need. At one end Bergeon 6111 has a larger sized forked tip (3mm), useful for extra leverage for spring bars and some rubber divers’ bands, and compressing straps. On the other end of the 6111 is a reversible tip consists of a finer forked tip (1.2mm) to access tighter areas on metal bands, and a straight pin pusher on the other (this end is too fine for us to use on leather straps). Each end has a collet to secure the tips, where other tools may use tips that screw directly into the tool. The tool is heavy duty metal, and has a knurled handle.

The 6111 is often found for slightly more than the total cost of the two spring bar tools that combine to offer the same functionality, the Bergeon 6767-S (“Standard” forked tip, 3mm) and 6767-F (“Fine” forked tip, only 1.2mm). Additional tips are also available for purchase.

There are other spring bars available for less, but we spent a bit more for the Bergeon. Last thing that we want to have happen is for a fork break and damage one of our watches.

One thing to keep in mind if you are purchasing this specifically as a Burgeon brand – it will come in a yellow box, and BERGEON 6111 should be stamped on the spring bar tool. If it doesn’t have these, it isn’t a BERGEON (though may be made in the same factory).

Size: 140mm in length, 7mm diameter
