Did a lil DIY project.



Superglued the damn thing back. Its actually not a bad solution, the super glue
glued it in place and made the loop harder as well. The perforated strap also allows for easy

absorption of the super glue making things easier. problem solved. icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif

Glad it worked out, but kind of a bummer of a problem to have in the first place. Always feels good fixing stuff yourself!

I know Salvatore is not known for watches and can be overpriced. I found one I like though for only 430$! It is part of their 1898 lineup.

 

What you guys think?

Don't bother.  Most clothing design companies don't make watches worth buying.  I'd rather have a Seiko, a Hamilton, or maybe something vintage/preowned.  There is a thread for less expensive watches and they may have some good suggestions for you.  Wishing you luck!

Yep. A factory finishing job requires a lapping machine and a qualified technician; a combination rarely found outside of a major manufacturer, much less an independent repair shop.

My repair guy has the machine and, more importantly, a former Big Three finisher operating it. The guy's a magician.

Heritage? or gimmicky. Either way, they'll be producing only 1 for auction.Tudor Black Bay One Reference 7923/001

They really shouldn't have added the red :brick:  and wow nv really notice the gap b/w the lug and the bracelet... looks fragile.

I think the old rolex oyster perpetual datejust had the same design as well but they have a cover for the gap yea?

 

might be the deal breaker for me.

 

Yep, red kills it.

Whether you brought it to Movado or someplace else, they should give you an estimate for the cost of what they are recommending.  Then you can decide whether to proceed with having them fix it or not.
