    Rolex bracelet refurbishment help

    Evening All

    My brother-in-law’s Explorer 2 bracelet has started to fall apart after 20 years of full-time wear.

    Anyone know someone capable of rebuilding it or does he need to go the whole hog and buy a new bracelet??

    Cheers, Francis

    I have seen positive comments on both of the suggestions mentioned here but at the same time I would also consider pricing a new bracelet. I believe others have done similar and then sold the original bracelet to reduce the price differential between the rebuild vs new.

    Seth did a good job on a loose rolex jubilee bracelet, but equally I would have thought a new one would not break the bank either.

    I’d recommend him too. Currently have a milguass with him now. He worked wonders on my friend Daytona. I’ll be giving him my GMT to work on next .

    Another shout out for the watch polisher. He completely rebuilt my mums totally decimated Daytona bracelet and it can back like new. Also put PCL on a sub 97200 bracelet and looks like it came out of Rolex. I also sent in a 30 year old ladies datejust with some serious bracelet stretch. The watch was completely refurbished, bezel recut, crystal replaced and bracelet repinned…came back like a brand new watch. Amazing work.

    His instagram posts are amazing. I got really excited when I read he was in Lordship lane - until I then realised it was the one in South London.
