My dad is planning to have his Rolex Day-Date platinum serviced. He bought it 10 years ago. Retailer he bought it from is no longer in business/recognized by Rolex.

Any advice or insight on this or the process?

Seems straight forward, but tbh, I would rather take it to a Rolex service center (in NYC) instead of going through a retailer.

Rsc in ny is definitely an easy way to do it. It will be pricey though

Heard better things about the Dallas service center than NY

Is the watch not running well or is he just getting serviced due to 10 year mark? A lot people agree to not send it in until you have any issues. A lot will run much longer than 10 years

If it’s running within spec, don’t bother servicing it yet.

Take it to Tourneau. Had my Hulk serviced and the price differential was about ~250.

Hi everyone, my dad has been looking for an AP Royal Oak chronograph for a few years - ideally in blue but would also be happy with black. I’m in NY and the AP sales person told me it was not likely to be available this year (in any colour, let alone blue) - does anyone have suggestions on how to find this watch? Would love to surprise him with it (he’s paying, just to be clear - but is in Australia and there’s no AP store there). Thanks 🙏
