Introducing The Alpha Caseback Opener Tool for Omegas
This is a tool designed to help prevent scratching while opening your vintage or modern Omega Speedmaster (as well as some other models). Unlike the universal caseback openers, which have 3 "teeth" and are prone to slipping if not adjusted correctly, the ALPHA tool contains 6 teeth, which fill up every slot of your caseback. This gives you a much better overall grip on the caseback. If attempting to turn the Alpha tool by hand proves to be too difficult and the caseback does not want to give-in, you may use the drilled tunnel of the tool to get yourself better leverage and apply more force by using any common household item like a screw driver.
This tool works very well with Omega Speedmaster Professional models. It works with vintage as well as modern references. It was also found that it works well with pre-Professional, straight lug Speedmaster models as well as Seamaster 300 and Railmaster models. A complete list of reference can be found at bottom of this page.
The Alpha tool has been successfully tested on following reference numbers:
