    Hi all,
    Apologies if this has been posted a million times before but I’m looking to service a few vintage Rolex. I’m based in the south east uk, in and around London. Any recommendations for sympathetic high quality vintage Rolex servicing are gratefully received.
    Thanks in advance.

    Here’s a couple of photos to sweeten the deal

    I had a good experience with RSC London. yes, for vintage watches. Also heard good stuff about Steven Hale (shwr.co.uk) and William Rice (williamricewatches.com).

    I use About Time Repair with Sean Yates. I am based in the US and elect to send them across the pond because he does them justice and beyond.

    I’ve used RSC St James with great success for a few vintage collectibles inc Mk1 1675, 16610LV (flat 4). All serviced with no replacement parts.

    William Rice in Hull (clearly you will need to post). He is rolex approved but in house so you are dealing direct and he understands vintage well so you won't end up with a shiny new set of hands (unless that's what you want...)!

    Thanks for all the responses, much appreciated. I’ve been in touch with Stephen Hale, but will contact a couple of the others. I think I prefer the ones nearer to London as would prefer to drop the watch off in person
