10 Essential Accessories & Tools Every Watch Enthusiast Should Buy + A Sneak Peek At My New Citizen

Author: theurbangentry

Description: Today I'm back in the War Room to share 10 things I believe every watch enthusiast should consider owning to compliment their watch collection. No matter if you are a 1-watch person or have an extensive line up of timepieces, you will undoubtedly find something here useful, and the best thing is that most of these items make great gifts too. In this video I also share a sneak peek at one of my latest acquisitions, a stunning and rare yacht timer from Citizen.

1. A spring bar tool. I recommend and use the Bergeon 6767-F:
