Good evening Rolli welcome to the forums. Are You an accumulator of time pieces?

Repair, restoration, mods perhaps? Well, that's great. So how about some before and after pics of your work? Maybe references too. Let's see if you're worthy of a business call. Don't be shy now. Welcome to the fray.

Let's give this guy a chance to see if he really wants to be part of this community by interacting with us. If he doesn't that means he just basically registered to plug his business. That's how I'll see it, but that's just me.

A watch is a movement, case, and bracelet. We’re the only shop in America that service and repairs all three

First of all, welcome to WF. And while I cannot refute your claim outright, I'm not so sure your are correct. My local watch repair shop services movements, cases and bracelets. They repair movements, they have repaired a slightly dinged and scratched case and based on that, I think they could help out with a bracelet too. America is a vast place with a lot of wily old expertise once one is able to find it.

Interesting. Laser welding and Swiss lapping of Rolex cases?

Also complete rebuild of all Oyster, Jubilee, and President bracelets?

This is first I have heard of this.

Rolliworks, I have nothing against you but you've changed your wording quite a bit. Servicing and repairing movements, cases and bracelets has become "laser welding and Swiss lapping of Rolex cases".

Weld and lap on sir, with my blessing.

Thats what case repair requires. Otherwise its just ordinary polishing and grind down of watch cases. Not a responsible way of repairing a watch case.

Mike, with more provided info I appreciate what you do, I just find the above quoted statement to be misleading. That's all.

Somehow my post disappeared perhaps temporarily, but good luck Mike, not that you'll need it. I'm from SF and I know the serious money the clientele around there have.
