Bracelet advice on Sub 6536/1

Spoke to a friend of mine earlier and the bracelet on his Sub has 'fallen apart'.

He is looking at the options but I suggested in the short term a nice NATO or a vintage leather strap.

Can you help me with the following;

* Is the lug width on this model 20 or 19mm ?
* Is there a newer (more robust) sub bracelet/endlink that would work with this
model ?
* Also, I believe there is someone in the UK that can work on bracelets ?

He isn't a WIS and my long term goal is that he will just sell it to me

thanks for your help in advance ..

I'd send the "fallen apart" bracelet to Michael Young he will restore it to almost new condition. Many on here have used him with great results. Good Luck!!

Yes thankyou, I've read lots about Michael Young, and most of it excellent reviews. But I believe he is in Hong Kong. He wasn't keen on sending it abroad.

Rolliworks in the bay area also repairs bracelets and does fantastic work.

Just had my 9315 bracelet done at Rolliworks - minimum polish and fixed the stretch. Amazing work!

RolliWorks then. Ask for Mike. Located in California. Should be able to restore the bracelet. Will have it polished to your liking if you want it.

I see you're in the UK. Shouldn't be an issue sending it to the States.

You can do a Google search. There's a lace ot two in the UK that does it. I've seen their websites.
