The more I read, the less likely I am to ever buy another Rolex. Same for Omega. Draconian service and parts policies are never to the advantage of consumers.

I thank the high heavens that the indie jewelers that I purchased my 1970 Datejust from employ a master watchmaker that can service vintage Rolex very, very well. No thoughts of even sending this to Rolex whatsoever - I trust the store I bought this from. I am so freakin' lucky. I even bought the integrated Everest strap to go with it there. I am covered.

It doesn't make sense why Rolex would change parts which decrease the value and not honor the request of the owner. They can clean, change the gaskets, oil the watch with out changing the overall integrity and beauty of the the watch. If the watch was "robust and high-performing" originally, why wouldn't it be after a service that maintained the original look and parts?
