Please point me in the right direction.


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I came here because I figured this would be the right place for my newbie questions. I don't have much knowledge of watch repair, I am looking for some kind of manuals or catalogues where I can find watch parts dimensions of high-end watches Rolex, etc... I am in the business of custom watch accessories ex. bezels, bands etc..and I am looking for information like inner and outer dimensions of a bezel, link sizes and thickness for different models of particular brands. Any help is appreciated.

Rolex

I'm reasonably sure Rolex never published for the general public any technical specifications about anything they ever made. That's because they get really excited about anyone who even thinks about copying anything they ever made.

I've been reading recently about the movement manufacturer Aegler that made movements for Rolex and Gruen and then exclusively for Rolex. It seems Rolex had a very firm hold of how Aegler operated. Even to the extent of having their name front and center on their advertising pictures of Aegler's factory. Gruen also did this in their adverts. The same factory with two different brand names shown. One reason i noticed that some rolex and gruen movements are identical. Rolex 🤔 maybe not so "The big I am ".  Rolex eventually bought the company in 2004.

Yes I've heard the same story in the early days they purchased movements. But supposedly now it's all in-house And if it's not in-house and you talk about it men in black will come and take you away and you'll change Your story shortly Or you'll never be seen ever again.

Haha i will wait for the black Hummers to roll up my driveway and Rolex's swat team to abseil from a circling helicopter.
