I own a fake Rolex submariner and the piece that connects the band to the watch is missing. I want to get this piece replaced but I fear that getting a replacement piece from a Rolex store would be way to pricey, and getting a cheap knockoff piece online would be, well too cheap. Is there any place to purchase replacement parts for an affordable price?missingpiece.thumb.jpg.56c0614f0090a4e1ccadca270fc5d801.jpgotherside.thumb.jpg.141e10c50ccf749f736d6d03bbb0049b.jpg

You could try Wholesale Outlet. I guess it depends on how much you paid for the watch and what it is worth to you. You will find them on bay of E

Difficult to buy those bits with the correct curve.
Better off buying a nice leather strap or even better have one made to your design.
Have a look at my goto strap guy. iYonk Straps. He has an Instagram account showcasing his work.

I ain't no choirboy but, discussion of how to repair fakes is typically a taboo subject on watch forums.

Not on this forum. We just ask not to post pics not needed for the contingency and do not promote or parade counterfeit items.

I agree with JerseyMo in principle, but of course those aren't the rules here. However, I don't see how buying a cheap knockoff piece could be "too cheap". You have a cheap knockoff watch, so why would that be any different than the original missing piece? A real Rolex piece would indeed be expensive, they won't sell you one anyway, and it probably wouldn't fit.

Why not just buy a new cheap bracelet.  

I've been looking at bracelets online that are cheap and would (theoretically) fit my watch, however they are all plain stainless steel bands, while my current is a two tone with the proper branding and logos on it and I prefer that.

You still can buy a 20mm two-tone oyster-like two-tone bracelet on AliExpress (you can find some for $20shipped I suppose) and change the buckle with the one you have on your broken bracelet.
Problem will be that your bracelet will be 'ew and without wearmarks and your watchcase and buckle will have wearmarks ... and you can only buff but not polish the "golden" parts because they are only plated and with a really thin plating.

I solved my problem by looking through eBay for parts, and I found a replacement link that is shipping soon. I doubt it was real because it was only 9 dollars for the pair, but it seemed to be the correct size.

$9 on eBay it's definitely fake but not a problem as your watch is fake.
Hope it will fit.

Hey guys Let's Call It A Rep,  best thing about this forum is that we aren't so far up our own ********** that we do allow members to discuss all types of watches, anyway I digress, I would go to aliexpress or dhgate to get your parts mate.

      I have an Elgin 770 with a pallet fork with a broken upper arbor pivot.  I've searched for a replacement pallet fork without success.  I'm told I might be able to buy an arbor and replace the broken piece.  Assuming I could find such a beast, is it possible to use my staking set to R&R the arbor?  No jeweling set available.

      Thanks,

      RMD

      This is a beautiful, but unusual watch band.  And it's WAY too big.  I have looked for different watch band styles to work out how I can re-size this, but can't seem to figure out what to call this style of band to do the search, none are matching with this one.  I have tried to pull on the pins to remove them from the band, but this only resulted in bending some of the pins (as you see).  A surprising result to me, but this must have been the result of the side-laying pins, and not the ones I was pulling on directly.  I decided to cease & desist, and am willing to take it to a jeweler to resize it, but would like to see if anyone here can help first. 
       
      Thank you.

    • Currently waiting on the postal service to deliver a Benrus CE13 (ETA930) movement. The cost for the complete movement was much less than international dial can refurb one. I bought it for a watch on which the dial has yellowed over time. .   https://www.ebay.com/itm/BENRUS-MODEL-CE13-CE-13-POINTER-17J-MOVEMENT-FOR-PARTS-OR-REPAIRS-RUNNING/324231185754?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
    • It made a mark on me too.  It's why, if I stumble upon a particularly well-crafted movement in a really nice watch that is advertised as "non-running" or "for parts", I try to procure it and restore it. Before scrappers come to get it, if I can.  They'll just melt the case and sell the movement for jewelry parts. So many were beautiful works of art, as well as marvelous mechanisms for their time.  And the craftsmanship that went into them!  It so very different from the computer-designed components we see today.  Computers do not have an eye for aesthetics.  But long ago, humans were combining aesthetics and accuracy in lovely ways.  And some of those artisans struggled to keep bread and cheese on their table.
    • Yes. This is the video that prompted me to look into getting an automatic oiler again. Several years ago I asked my mentor about automatic oilers. His opinion was that it was an unnecessary luxury. He tends to be old school and even makes his own precision oilers from sewing needles. But recently I've been restoring pre 60's watches and they don't have shock springs. It's a real pain to lubricate such jewels. I don't know if any of you have this problem with steel oilers, but here in Singapore, it's so humid that if I leave my oilers uncapped on my bench for a couple of days, it'll start rusting. I might get one of these Chinese oilers as with the discounts and coupons, it comes to 1/3 the price of a Bergeon.
