Unless you find it alongside the hen's teeth and unicorn poop on eBay just get a Bergeon 6767F. :lol:

Except that it is blue and it has Breitling written on it and what I paid for it I could have bought the 6767F AND a set of hen's teeth :-(

Please excuse my lack of knowledge, but I thought the 6767f was a spring bar tool used only to swap out bracelets. Can you also use it to remove small screws and resize bracelets?

Thanks,

Regular 16 or 18 (1.6mm or 1.8mm) watchmaker's screwdriver will do that job.

I have a Navitimer bracelet and when i try to remove the screws at positions 1 and 7 they just spin. am i doing anything wrong? I can take out other links just fine.


First a big thanks to OP.

They (and only they) are supposed to spin so you hold the other sides 2 and 6 with another screwdriver in order to remove.

Question for Breitling pros: regarding mounting the Navitimer bracelet 423A (22-18) model, what type of Breitling spring bars are used to mount this bracelet, I am trying to use the Breitling spring bars from a leather strap and they do not fit, too wide.
Is there a Breitling style or part number for them?

Many threads on this. Bracelet spring bars have a smaller diameter - 1.5mm.

Thanks Roff, so it is 1.5mm for bracelet vs. 1.8mm for strap. I can tell that my strap spring bars are very tight and they require some force to slide-remove so this is appropriate for leather straps.
I can imagine how many Breitling owners have the wrong spring bars in their straps, this is like a hidden info that just a few true enthusiasts pay attention to.
