Icon5 Tool set for Rolex 1603?

Looking for a basic tool set for my Rolex 1603.

Need a punch and screwdriver set in order to remove links and remove the band.

Recommendations?

Rolex ref. 2100 screwdriver is the best option, assuming you have an Oyster bracelet. Jump on the classifieds here or eBay. If you have a Jubilee, you need a slightly smaller screwdriver - work out what size, then find a good quality hollow ground one.

I found an extremely small screwdriver at Home Depot to change links. Lowes has them too..... I don't know the size but it's about as small as it gets.

Make sure the screw driver has a hollow ground tip. Otherwise you run the risk of damaging the screws.

8000 for a watch ,,, 8 dollars for a full set of screwdrivers ,,,, just dont do it
buy one nice screwdriver ., the first scratch or chewed head will be worth the price of a nice screw driver ,,,, buy good tools buy once.
