There is no solid end link bracelet that has the numbers 93150 on it.Or a solid end link bracelet that fits your watch that comes from ROLEX.
Stop worrying it will be ok................
I just noticed the thread is Nightmare......................... Relax it will be OK

Now more important where is this watch and those pics?

Quote from Tools in a thread: "The Sub Date comes with a newer non-hole case, solid end-link bracelet and an improved divers extension with a couple of extra links that hook inside the clasp.. For that, you pay a thousand bucks more.."

I figured the sub had the 93150 bracelet. I am not worried about the bracelet, just curious.

I'm tellin ya, I checked everyday online with the tracking number when I shipped it. It took almost a week for Registered Mail to get the watch there. The time they tell you isn't correct. They don't fly with the Registered packages I was told. Each one goes ground and has to be passed off to another person who signs for it. This takes time. Patience everybody, patience. Maybe you can go back to page 1 and 2 to look at the watch while you wait.

She isn't mine, its a family business. Maybe I should wait until a certain time and then unveil it for everyone. Maybe tomorrow at 9:00AM sharp?

Ok, I need to get some good pictures of this watch. All I have is an A200 fuji film. I'm gonna go borrow by step brothers camera. Its nice. If I can't get some good photos then I am seriously going to a studio and asking a professional to take a few good shots of it. I don't want to post bad pictures. I will never hear the end of it.

Small problem. The old band was not packaged with the watch. Joanne is not there today and I won't be able to get to the bottom of it until Monday. Not too worried about it, unless it went into a shredder or something. Here is an inital picture to make you happy.

They dont give you back your old bracelet or parts.Thats why when you want a new bracelet you send the watch in with the worst 1 you can find and keep the original.

I called them back and made sure they still have the band. They said that they do have it and the band will not be sent to Geneva as do all old parts. At least I know they have it until I talk with Joanne Monday. I'm not worried about getting it back as Joanne's word is gold.

I am at a professional studio as I write this. I am using a computer with a huge monitor used to preview the pictures. I was showing the photographer some of the pictures the forum to give her an idea of some shots. I will be posting some good photos soon.

Buy a new model Sony or whatever. (Mine is an old DSC-T50 and it works well!)

That way you'll be able to post pictures for wrist-checks!



Whoops! Its in the truck!
