We have Phillip Ridley in Mesa, now. Can't do any better than that.

Well I paid my invoice today and hope to have my bracelet back this week. I will gladly posts my thoughts and my before and after pics. I am hopeful that all will turn out well. I was billed for an extra half hour of laser welding so this thing should come back looking great considering the small amount of a stretch I had prior to shipping, see page 2. Most will think I am crazy to even send it in the first place but I was trying to catch it before it got worse considering its roughly a 14-15 year old watch/band. Then ultimately costing me a lot more.

Overall I feel what I have paid is more then fair especially considering the cost of a new band from Rolex. Now lets just hope the work performed justifies the costs paid.

Heís still servicing but given everything going on, I would probably wait a bit. He does great work though, that I can tell you.

I think John had multiple past experiences from his earlier post that I pasted below.

I donít think heís planning on further details here as this thread is now quite far afield from its original purpose.
