I did not buy mine from a local dealer but just went to one nearby (midday on a weekday while they weren’t busy) and said I’d received it as a gift and asked if they’d mind resizing it. They did it for free.

You can do it yourself at home quite easily, but if not any jewelery store would be fine

YouTube. Wrap the rest of the bracket in masking tape to prevent scratches and you should be good. *required tools: small set of jewelers screw drivers; optional tools: masking tape and glass of scotch to steady hands*

Note that if you’ll do it at home, be sure to use whichever type of Loctite that Rolex use for the link screws. I forget which kind it is, but i couldn’t find it in stock nearby which is why I just went to a dealer.

Don’t the new ones just have screws at the end of the pins?

Why not bring it to the Rolex service center on 5th?

Take it to an AD. They should do it for free if you ask nice. Don’t try it yourself if you’ve never done it before.

Also, Rolex uses loctite that can be a real bitch to break free. You’ll also mar the screw head if you’re using a cheap little screw driver.

any watch store that sells rolex should do this for you for free in the hopes that you buy another one from them

I did mine in a small watch repair shop in SF Chinatown. I would suggest finding a good repairman and started building relationship with them for those kinda stuff that are not necessarily need to be done at AD. He became like my mechanic now. I am sure NYC Chinatown has some good shops as well. (Btw I'm not Chinese 😀)
