Tokyobay DIY watch

The people at Tokyobay has released a DIY (Do It Yourself) watch kit. The kit will retail for USD 210. The kit comes with 9 watchmaker tools, 2 watches and 4 straps. There is not much information on the watches itself other than it measures 44 mm across (including crown) and is quartz powered (spare batteries provided). I believe that the watches are pre-assembled. The difference between the two watches are the dial colours, one beige and the other black. The watch is a basic 3 hand watch.

The watch comes with 4 straps, 3 of which are made from cloth/ canvas and the remaining one, leather. The straps comes fitted with spring-bars. This makes changing the strap easier as you do not need to move the spring-bars from strap to strap. The straps are of the NATO type design.

The kit comes with a set of tools that will allow you change the straps and also do basic battery change. For what I can see the tools that comes with the kit are 3 screw-drivers, a pair of tweezers, polishing cloth, 2 type of case back opener, one for screw-back and the other for snap-back, a spring-bar remover and another tool. It comes in a packed in a zippered bag.
