What is Rolex Bracelet Repair
Rolex bracelet repair is a specialized service that addresses issues with the bracelet of your Rolex watch. This includes repairing or replacing damaged or worn links, clasp adjustments, and refinishing services to restore the bracelet's original look and functionality. At WatchGuys, we ensure that every aspect of the bracelet repair upholds the integrity and quality of your Rolex.
Types of Rolex Bracelet Repair:
- Rolex Bracelet Stretch/Sag Repair - this includes the service of restoring and tightening the links on your Rolex bracelet. This will give the bracelet less sag.
- Rolex Link Replacement - this includes the service of adding or removing links. Please contact us if you would like to purchase additional links.
- Rolex Bracelet Polish - this includes the service of polishing your Rolex bracelet to remove buffs or scratches.
Why is My Rolex Bracelet Stretched
Over time, the links of a Rolex bracelet can stretch due to regular wear and tear. This is common in older or heavily worn watches and is typically seen in the Oyster or Jubilee bracelets. The stretching happens as the pins and holes in the bracelet's links gradually wear down, causing them to fit more loosely.
If this has happened to your Rolex bracelet, do not worry, our team would love to repair your bracelet to restore its tightness. This is a common occurrence over time with both Oyster and Jubilee bracelets due to regular wear. Fortunately, we can help restore your bracelet to its original tightness, making it feel brand new again.
The Rolex Bracelet Repair Process
Our experienced watchmakers will examine your bracelet to determine if a repair can be done. In most cases, we're able to restore your worn Jubilee, Oyster, or even Presidential bracelets. However, it's important to note that this process can take between 1 to 2 weeks. It is a meticulous task, requiring our watchmakers to manually tighten each link on the bracelet.
Cost of Repair
The cost for repairing a Stainless Steel bracelet can range from $800 to $1500. Two-tone and Presidential bracelets are slightly more expensive to repair and may take a bit longer due to their intricate design.
This service is ideally suited for those who have cherished and worn their Rolex watches over a long period of time. If your bracelet has become 'overworn' and has started to sag, we can tighten it up for you, making it feel fresh and new again.
