what are some of your favourite tools as a collector? I've read several good reviews about Bergeon's 6767 (and its successor 7767) and looking to get a proper spring bar tool!
iphone pin tool and panerai screw driver.

works perfectly with most watches.

The shop I bought the watch from did not have the tools to size the bracelet. So I went to a neighbourhood watch shop to size it. After 1 day of wearing the watch, one of the pins came out! Luckily I wasnt wearing the watch at that time if not I'm sure it would have dropped from my wrist. So now, it's on temporarily on a nato strap.

A lot of the shops dunno what they are doing.. Loads of horror stories out there cos generally shops that are not experienced just assume it is pin only, not pin and collar. Dunno if MM300 bracelet is pin and collar but needs to be handled properly. Nowadays I just do myself.

Do you still have the collar? If they fitted the collar in, the pin shouldnít drop!

Get a pin removal tool and diy!
