This is pretty amazing! I would imagine it's pretty focused work as well

For anyone who may be a little leery about shipping your watch to Michael...fear not! He sent me a FedEx prepaid label to use. The insured value was up to $9999.00. I shipped my watch out on Thursday afternoon from Fort Worth, TX. It arrived the very next day in California, and Michael signed for it himself. Proof of that was emailed to me along with his signature. He has already been in touch with me multiple times. Looks like heís going to have to do some laser welding on one of my lugs to repair a whoops because it was too deep to polish without removing a bunch of material. Absolutely loving the attention to detail so far!

Michael, do you repair ladies TT jubilee bracelets from 26mm watches? My wife has a Datejust from 1991 and the jubilee bracelet has a good bit of stretch. Great thread and thanks for posting all the photos. Awesome work with the repairs and servicing.

Cheers, Tim

Love this thread. I have three bracelets I am going to be sending for repair.
One thing I wanted to ask: I am pretty new here, maybe this has been discussed somewhere...years ago I sold a SS Oysterdate from here in Canada, to a fellow in the US. - all went well, until it went 'missing' in transit. It had been seized by US Customs and sent to a customs impound warehouse. Apparently I was breaking some sort of Rolex trademark law ... ? ... to get it back, I had to call Rolex USA Lawyers in New York and pay $300 to get the watch back. I paid, and they sent it back to me. Has anyone ever encountered anything like this?

Well folks, here it is!! Couldnít be happier with the turnout! Many thanks to Michael and his team! The complete turnaround time, including shipping was 1 day short of 4 weeks. Canít beat that kind of service and speed!

Wow that yacht master looks brand new!

Did they put a new bezel on? Or was that repaired by them also?

They put the original bezel on a lapping machine to bring it back to where it is now.

Great work Mike - Do you also repair dinged/dented teeth on Sub/GMT bezel rings?

I think iíd need to see a photo. At some point this year will get our lathe indexed to recut and restored the grooves on sport bezels. In most cases recutting the grooves isnt really necessary.

That was a thing until a few years ago, with sending Rolex to the US. No longer the case, fortunately.
