Default Vintage 1945 Rolex Datejust Repair HELP

Dear Friends, my dad gave me as a gift a Rolex DateJust Model 6605, and serial 355,XXX around 1945. I have read that the movement is Rolex 1065.
I sent it to Rolex, and they said they couldn't repair it because they don't have te parts anymore.
I need new dial, hands, new calendar disc, and the movement is not working at all.
Do you know some watchmaker that is specialist in vintage Rolex?
I mean some one I can really trust, so I would know what is the status of my watch.
If the movement is un-repairable I would not care if he fits another Rolex movement, as far as works great.
I would really appreciate all your kindness, patience, and help.

Very Warmest Regards,

Mike

I have no experience with vintage Rolex watches. However, at least in the not too distant past, I thought that Bob Ridley was one of the go to guys for vintage Rolex repair. Not sure if this is still the case, though. May want to wait for "smarter" people to chime in but here's a link to his website:

Also, Rik Dietel is another guy you may want to contact: http://www.timecareinc.com/index.html
