My First Rolex

Hi guys, finally joined the club!

Long story short, it’s a 1975 model number 6265

I was fixing to send the watch to Rolex for servicing but after a quick google search I learned that’s big nono

In the dfw area, who do y’all recommend?

For vintage in your area, Bob Ridley at Watchmakers International in Arlington, is the vintage guy.

Since the service is by him, I'm sure you'll be pleased.. from what I've heard from many others who had Mr Ridley work on their pieces..
