Thank you both for the kind welcome!
I only did, knowing that a whole replacement was about 15 bucks, crazy that there are really beginners thinking about taking apart a Rolex in pieces lol
By the way, love the youtube channel of Mark, a really great guy!
Ouch.. I'm not sure if you will be able to straighten that without risking snapping it. Small gentle tapppity tap taps.
If it were something less fragile, I would suggest heating it before bending, but in this case.. probably not..
Any suggestions anybody?
Put it in a vice between two soft jaws maybe?
I guess just enough unbending to stop the balance rubbing, then test, if still not satisfactory, then just a little more.
Thanks all! Happily after a couple more emails back and forth the watch was ‘found’ and is listed as shipped. It doesn’t appear now that the seller has anything devious in mind just, as thought on this thread, was confused about the process.
