Jubilee repair

Hello forum users!
Today the pin in my 555 end link jubilee just gave out, which is why I'm seeking a repair. From what I've heard classicwatchrepair is the place to go to, but apparently has quite the waiting list and being located in Hong Kong isn't ideal as I'm from Europe. Another website I've found offering a similar service is https://www.klokkeland.no/rolex-band-repair/. I was wondering if any of you have any experience with them.
Really appreciate your help
best regards

Sounds like you just need a new spring bar?

Indeed, this. You could go to any AD and they will probably give you two new spring bars for free, assuming they're not the gold ones.

It is indeed not the springbar that broke but the pin holding together the folded pieces of metal making up the clasp. To fix this i reckon i'd have to send it away anyway so why not fix the stretch on to jubilee while i'm at it.
