This is a great thread. Glad I came across this.

@RoLLiWORKS at what stretch mark/percentage would you recommend jubilee bracelet tightening?

I own a 80's TT 36mm DJ with 85% bracelet stretch.

80-85% is ideal. We find in this range it's almost certain we can get it restored to 95%+ without issue. Usually the links are in good condition. But at 85% the slack will start to cause uneven wear. With the 65% bands for example a realistic goal is around the 80-85% at best.

7206 Rivet Oyster. So many pieces, so many rivets, sigh. Sorry no time to go crazy with photos, but it's worth showing how many pieces makes up the very desirable Rolex 7206 Oyster bracelet.

8 very small pieces per link and many have 12 links.

$300-$400 to fix what I think is the most unsightly problem on watches worth thousands of dollars? Sounds like a deal to me.
