STRETCH REPAIR

We make the impossible possible

We can perform restoration and repair on most Oyster and Jubilee bracelets.

The pins that connect the links will abrade after extensive usage. Dirt and other things that are stuck around the pins and tubes become like abrasive when the pins and links rub against each other. This results in both the link and the pins being ground down and the space inside become larger and larger.

WEAR

After years of use.

For the stretch to be repaired we insert new pins and tubes that allow the links to be tightened again.

President bracelets we dont take in for service right now, because of the high cost of  the restoration.

When tightening, the bracelet will be shorter. Some customers might need to buy new/used links to make it fit. The bracelet might become stiffer, but this will disappear during usage. For the oldest "folded and rivet" bands, it is difficult to get new/used links.

F.A.Q.

Here you will find most answers to your questions about stretch repair.

DO YOU REPLACE EVERY PINS IN A JUBILEE BRACELET?

Yes, on the Jubilee bracelet we replace pins on all the links. The Oyster bracelet are a little different with tubes around the pins. It is the tubes we change most often in the Oyster Bracelet.

WILL YOU ALSO REPAIR THE GOLD LINKS IN A STRETCH REPAIR?

No, we do not repair the gold center links during a stretch repair of the Oyster and Jubilee. However, we will contact you if we notice that some of the links are so dilapidated that they can break. We then repair the selected joints for a nice price.

WILL THE BAND GET SCRATCHES?

A few times, when we pull the links apart, there may be some surface scratches on the links. These are removed by way of polish.

WILL YOU POLISH THE BAND?

Yes, but only if you tell us to do it. However, we do not remove deep scratches. We provide an easy link polishing. If you want a full polish, it comes with an extra cost.  We recommend fixing deep scratches with laser welding.

FOR HOW LONG AFTER A REPAIR WILL THE BRACELET BE TIGHT

The new pins or tubes are of the same type of steel as the original.  The more often link and bracelet are cleaned, the longer the bracelet will remain nice and tight.

ARE THE NEW PINS ORIGINAL FROM RLX

No, we make the new pins and tubes that are inserted on the Jubilee and Oyster bracelet ourselves.
