Inherited Rolex, need help with links and service options

Good morning,
As mentioned above I inherited what I believe to be a mid to late 80 date just with a jubilee band in I believe stainless and gold. I know little to nothing about Rolex in general so I was hoping to get some information. Unfortunately, I have a very large wrist compared to my Dads and would love to know the best way to go about enlarging the band to fit my wrist as well as get the watch properly serviced by a reputable shop. My father was not a man of means but he was able to purchase this watch 30+ years ago. He wore it only for special occasions and was very proud of it and I would really love to be able to continue to wear it on special occasions in remembrance.

Btw Im located in the San Francisco Bay Area

Thanks in advance for your help!!!

There is an old Rolex Service Center on Post Road in SF who can still service older Rolex watches, Pascal Giovanni.

It's possible that he could also have some Jubilee links around, but they are easily purchased through a Rolex AD
