Someone in another thread mentioned that he outsources now. I have had a bracelet restored by him a while back and the work was great.

Michael Young's work is hit and miss. I will not use him anymore as well as others here on the forum.

Curious - I know it's too late but assuming you are in the US did you consider Rolliworks in the CA Bay Area? They seem to have a good reputation and perform work as good as M Young on bracelets. I haven't personally taken a watch to them (ended up selling) but would have been my choice to avoid duties.

Steve is “Down Under”, so Hong Kong is actually closer to him than California.

Welcome to “hand performed” work!

Yeah just because some place is closer don't mean it is better.
I guess I learned that the hard way.
Bracelet is screwed up pretty good now.
Once bitten twice shy, wont be sending it back.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice,....no that ain't happening.
