    Tragedy struck today when realised one of my case screws securing the band on my 36mm AP has come loose and been lost :(

    I trawelled the house but couldn't find it

    Does anyone know where I could find a replacement?

    Call the service center, they should sell the part.

    Yep, service center, but I suspect they will have to examine the watch before selling you the part. Give them a call.

    Parts like that they have sold in the past, as people swap bracelets and straps. Would be surprised if they made you send in the watch.

    Then again last time ordered AP parts was 10 years ago, but I did have a splendid call with them a few weeks ago when they confirmed the service history on my 14790.

    Difficult, unfortunately.
    Not sure how the situation is in Australia but for us in Germany it‘s very hard to get replacement parts from AP, even such minor things as bracelet screws, crowns etc.
    Try your nearest AP Boutique, if they have a spare they might sell or give it to you without wanting to take the watch in for a thorough inspection.

    Cheers,

    @EdtheAussie did you manage to get a replacement screw in the end?

    I found the ones for AP bands worked.

    I did send it to get a service quote hoping they could replace the part, but the factory said the movement wasn't serviceable as it was a quartz

    Perhaps AP replaces quartz movements? They are serviceable in my experience. 5B93676A-0573-4766-9A67-11C2476169A0.jpeg CCE2C498-C0AA-4AE0-9C9F-058D1332B407.jpeg 2D8DCBC9-1C98-4E2E-B39B-164C57F226F3.jpeg 54064517-81B4-4F0A-9E97-23B20C628FB6.jpeg
