    most watchmakers will be able to fix your watch depending on parts. in extreme cases, parts need to be machined (if official channels no longer produce them)
    Currently wearing:
    TT Datejust with diamond dial - sold!
    Blue 6694
    Seiko SD-lookalike

    "My collection":
    Blue 6694; TT DJ w diamond dial.

    These watches are expensive and requires extra care. but if they got damaged you must be ready to loose large amount of bucks!

    If it is full overhaul, I would still opt for RSC.

    If you send in to RSC to repair your vintage rolex, you risk RSC changing your original vintage parts with service parts. And when that happens, you might see your vintage rolex value taking a hit. Just saying....
    I think there is a good restoration shop (for all sort of higher end watches) at lucky plaza or far east plaza. Just can't remember the name....
