Rolex Datejust rescued

Recommended Posts

judas9r

I asked for some advice on servicing an old Datejust back in July. Just received it back from Rolie completely refreshed. He's taken it from somthing I was worried to even wind for fear of breaking it to somthing I'm enjoying once again as my day to day wear.

The watch as it was in July.

Quick thanks to everyone who responded to my original post inc @RussP @TheFreckledTampon @Mr_B @Rokerite @pickledbeetroot @Spike @Foxindebox and of course @ROLIE who's fine work I have not done any justice with my crappy photos. Must be the light, or the camera. Cheers all.

Awesome!!!! That looks great, really nicely done. I suspect you'll get many years of pleasure of of that beauty.

Also, Rolie. Rolie is such a legend that I'm actually going to go home tonight and break a perfectly good watch, just so I can justify sending it to him to be made better. Forum fucking leg end.

Any preference for what I should break Neil?

@TheExpiredCoupon @TheFreckledTampon Just try and fix a small problem that you have with one of yours. It'll be trash in no time, and then you can justifiably send it up. I'll give him your regards on Saturday :)

Cnut. I'm basically a trained watchsmith. Cnut.

Do! Buy him a nice coffee from me, laced with ginger essence so he thinks of me.

Ginger the spice that is, rather than my spunk. That'd just be weird.

Thanks for the update.

Rolie for President, or Prime Ministe, I say.

That Boris Johnson fella has f@rked things up no end from what I've read in the newspaper...

Yep - Have to agree. Neil is indeed a most skilled individual, with the bonus of being a genuinely nice guy. Goes without saying that the watch looks great.
