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 found this forum during a search for a reason that my watch dial or face twisted or rotated inside the watch. I’m unable to find anything about this happening. If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated. I got the watch as a graduation gift 20+years ago and wear it almost every day . Thanks.

      An aquatance asked me to have a look at his milgauss, this is what I found. The case is heavy and all parts feel and look correct ref no 116400gv green crystal.Has the Rolex emblem etched on the crystal. The bracelet has correct screw pins, the caseback is solid and feels smooth when unscrewing. Then I phoned him to tell the good news. And he informed me he paid 100 dollars. The case is worth more than the movement.

      I have overhauled this watch and upon reassembly, I can't get the oscillating weight to turn freely.  It wasn't turning when I tore it down for cleaning.
      Has anyone had any experience fitting the two part gear and post to the OSC weight?  I am having trouble with keeping the keyed gear in to the male post part of the oscillating weight hub, then turning over to attach the spring clip.   Need two more hands I think.

      Hi!
      Anybody knows what is the circled part in the picture*? How should you reinstall? Does it need to have any movement or should it be tightly screwed on one place?
      It looks like it's not connected to anything or that i'm missing something. 
      The Rolex watch i'm trying to fix on stops dial side up and i'm thinking this may be the culprit since i didn't touched it and couldn't find anything else wrong, but who knows 😖
      (*Took a screen shot from a YouTube video but it looks the same on the 1520 caliber only in silver).
       
      Thanks!

      hi folks,
      total noob here... got a 6498 clone movement to start learning the watchmaking ropes... seller called it a 6498 and an m03, but I assume it's basically an st36... .
      anyhow, was testing the click during reassembly and the spring flew off to points unknown... 
      so I was wondering if anyone knew where else I could get an st36 click spring in a reasonable amount of time? a Polish shop on ebay that sells the part ran out of them and an Italian shop that sells it is on vacation... original eta 6498 click springs don't look quite the same; so that route looks like a non-starter...
      advice appreciated...

    • Always nice if you give us a background story? Did you purchase the watch new with the instructions coming with that watch? Then I have a link where it explains what a Seiko five Is. Notice it does not define a specific caliber so conceivably the setting instructions may be different. On some of the Seiko is pushing in the crown should advance the day date but others you may pull it out to the position in between the setting and in and it should change the day date the same as basically any other watch. Then it would be helpful to give us the model number of the movement you'll find that number on the back of the case   https://www.seikowatches.com/global-en/products/5sports/about  
    • Hello everyone,  got a question. I just purchased a Seiko 5, and trying to set day and time. I've followed the instructions,  but I can't push in on crown to quick change the date and day. Or all Seiko 5 push to set? 
    • I had ordered a Omega 960 (based on 6497) and when I got it, the hour wheel is there but they don't have dial screws. I had to source some Omega screws for a lot of dough 😞 I contacted the seller but he said he doesn't know at all and just sell NOS movements.   Luckily, many parts can be found using 6497 as keyword and they are interchargeable.
    • I was thinking of drilling it but wanted to get this job done. Next time perhaps. I also put a video on YouTube , reassembling the Ball Waltham made watch and putting in the setting screws. Big success with the jewel setting and the resulting amplitude and beat error of the movement. Next job is soldering dial feet:)
