Speaking of Rolex bracelets, my 2003 GMT bracelet has got some sag to it these days - thoughts or opinions on whether to have it serviced by 3rd party or replaced by Rolex at its next standard service in a couple of years?

Also, are there any recommendations on shops that will just service the bracelet? Rolliworks still the #1 go to for that type of work?
My experience with having a 3rd party trying to fix up the bracelet on the Sub I bought in '91 wasn't too positive. The price I paid was a bout a third of the cost of a new bracelet, and going back I would rather have put that money towards a new one.
Does your bracelet have an extension link in the clasp? If so, I'd recommend removing it (as you presumably never use it), as that'll eliminate quite a bit of jangling IME.

Number 1 modern Rolex in my opinion:

Especially if you brush the **** out of it.
I f*cking HATE to be that guy, bro, but these pictures are heavily edited. In real life, in the actual metal, the watch is a bit underwhelming. The subdials are more of a darker gray. The black dial is more of a charcoal, and in certain light looks off. These are fantastic pictures, but the real thing isn't as cool. The panda 126509 is much, much better.

Teddy Baldasare, or however the f*ck you spell they/them's name, opened an AD, but it's in Cleveland. I went to Cleveland once for work. I feel asleep on the plane and when we landed thought we were re-routed to Chernobyl.
When I think of luxury watches, 'Cleveland' comes first. And then, Drew Carey.

Well, aren't you lame. I am interested in seeing it, now.

I lol’d, but in all seriousness, good for him. Dude has worked his butt off for years and built a real business. Got to give credit where it is due.
