When I was first starting out in the clock repair business, Bob Goodman, who was teaching me, told me to get a set of watch screwdrivers for those smaller French clock screws. I sent an order off to S LaRose (an admission of which, I suppose “dates” me) for their Bergeon screwdrivers, and when they arrived, proudly carted them into work with me the following Saturday. (The deal was I worked half days on Saturdays for Bob Goodman in his shop, and in exchange for that, he taught me clock repair). He looked at them and apologized profusely, for not telling me to avoid their brand, He said that Bergeon items were invariably nearly 50% higher in price than anyone else for the same item.
