The best investment I ever made

I bought my first Rolex case opener tool from Smith & Smith at 149 Castlereagh St in 1995 for $240.95 which was $40 more than the weekly rent for a brand new 2 bedroom unit.  It was a Bergeon Ref. 5537 which is still as good as new and we use it daily. That single tool has made me thousands - perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars - and was the best investment I've ever made.

The Bergeon case opener for Rolex watches ref. 5537 is once again available in Castlereagh Street - for your pleasure.  I'll sell you the tool, you write your own history.
