Going to my local Rolex AD is not usually a good experiance and I was reminded last week why. I needed a couple of "old " spring bars (24x2x1.2), I rang them and they said they had them. Into the shop I go (Perth city , Western Australia ). On arrival the pleasant lady hasnt a clue, fortunately the young man I had spoken to comes back from lunch, he eventually finds 2 spring bars. I cough up $30 , the man/boy says they are genuine Rolex ! Conversation ensues and I ask him about a couple of new bracelets , I mention they are for a Gilt 5513 and a 1665 DRSD, he can find no reference to these watches. I then ask if I can order them. NO, we have to see the watches first. I say ok I can bring them in for you to sight, he then tells me they will be sent to Melbourne 2500k's away to ascertain their suitability for the bracelets to be fitted !! I said that I was not happy with $80k of my watches in the post. My rejoinder was, as you are an AD, cannot you verify the watches, answer no, apparently Rolex do not trust their own AD's ! So this was not going to happen. So my question is has anyone used a Uncle Seiko BOR bracelet and fettled the end links to fit Rolex cases ? If so which US bracelet and associated end links did you use ? I did ask Uncle Seiko , they did not know. I can almost feel the purists squirming but if Rolex don't want my money I will solve it myself. Thanks in advance for anyone brave enough to reply.
