    Rolex bracelet repair by TheWatchDealer.co.uk

    My old jubilee was decidedly stretched, so I sent it to Seth at thewatchdealer.co.uk for a bit of TLC - and I am very happy with the results!





    It's like new, and the only downside is that it's so tight it could do with another half link now!


    Took a while (three months) and comms could be better but - overall - I'm very happy!

    don't know any thing of rolex bracelets but got to ask would it not have been cheaper to buy a new one and at least quicker ?
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Have you seen how much decent quality Rolex bracelets go for...? A genuine one that's not trashed is about 500 and there are a lot of fakes.

    This cost me a lot less than half the price of a new one.

    I DID say "don't know any thing of rolex bracelets "
    so it was asked to clarify to those like me it was the better option it seems ..
