    Some of the watch shops/companies also sell these tools. I came across it at Passion Watch Exchange, Red Army Watches, JW Watches. Member Dfive has also posted some Internet links recently to these tools.

    Sorry to add more input. I look for very specify spring tool for remove a Rolex Bracelet from Oyster Casing without pin holes to prevent getting a scratch. Actually got a 1 Sinn Spring Tool come with my Sinn U2. But still not good enough for me.

    Yeah, the tools in the garage can remove rolex bracelets. Just use the small fork and remove the bracelet.

    There is no way the tool is able to prevent a scratch, no matter how good the brand, the build and quality. If you use a sharp piece of metal against another metal surface it's gonna scratch. So it boils down to the person handling it. If your hand is not stable or the tool slips out of your hands then no one can help.

    What you can do is to put a scotch tape on the side to prevent scratches.

    or use the same thinking as RSC sg.

    since its already scratched it doesnt matter if we add another one (when i went to regulate my 6694)
    Currently wearing:
    TT Datejust with diamond dial - sold!
    Blue 6694

    My experience as below & still in practising.
    Use the "sharp tip toothpick" but in the process of removing u may brake a lot of toothpicks & little bit patient is required.
    If the toothpick tip blunt is cut it off diagonally to obtain a new sharp tip.
    At least yr precious' lugs are well protected & scratch free.
