Your clasp is the same steel as your bracelet. It gets more contact since it sits higher and is where your wrist naturally sits at rest.

The Scotch Brite will make your clasp look as good as the bracelet..

This is a great post! This is the way you are supposed to do it. The table, Light, Clean Work environment, proper tools, removing the bracelet, bezel, and the Attention to Detail...

Thanks TOOLS for this. It will help many, including myself...

Can someone provide tips on how to 'brush' the caseback so as to remove some light markings from rings tapping and brushing against the caseback?

I have found that Garryson (GarryFlex) blocks are easier to use and provide a more uniform abrasion for a consistent finish. These have been mentioned in other posts. I recommend the 240 grit (brown) for a fine finish. The medium 120 grit (grey) can be used for eliminating more serious scuffs and then finish with the 240. Use a bit of water to smooth the action. RSC do a better job of course, but for interim clean up these blocks work. Make sure you rinse VERY thoroughly after the work to make sure you leave no grit in the bracelet or you'll just accelerate wear. Hope this helps.

I see that you use the 6111 for spring bar removal. How is that different than the 6767f which is also highly recommended?

Also, a lot of people have said that buying the Bergeon 7825 for $150 is worth it. Is it? Any of the videos I have seen in which a 6111/6767 type tool is used it doesn't look very hard.

The design is just slightly different between the 6111 and the 6767f. They both work great. Heck there are other spring bar tools like the one Everest sells that works just as good.

In my opinion the 7825 is not a better tool. You can still scratch the lugs and also shoot the spring bar across the room with any tool. With patience and some tape any one of the tools you mention work perfectly.

Thank you for your input! I would love to hear other input on the subject.

I saw a bracelet removal video with the 6111 where they unscrewed the bracelet to lay it flat before removing it from the case. I'm hoping that's not the recommended SOP, as it would be pretty annoying to have to re-loctite a bracelet screw every time you removed the bracelet. :-0

No reason to do that.
