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 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...

      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.

    • Thanks🙂 so much I just got your reply so I will let you know. 
    • Hi there Mr jdrichard, glad you have these holders. You can also apply pressure on stubborn screws and the Myers won't let the movement flip of the holder and the whole show end on your bench. Also keep well lubricated both holders.

    • Hi All, Just am update.  I have received the donor movement and took the couple of parts I needed before I started my attempt on the dial side.    I believe I am missing 3 parts.  See photos.  If anyone has them as spares, please let me know.  I am not sure the ‘Dial Rest’ part is needed for mine as it was not on the dial.  It’s big enough for not to be missed etc but I may take it if available.    Regards, Yasser.
    • if the case back is not original you're definitely going to have a problem. Usually when ordering components for cases for Seiko watches everything is based on the case back number. It could be a different case back as long as it's the right case back for that case then you could use the number. But if it's totally wrong case back here in trouble sort of? If you look at the dial usually on the bottom there is a dial number it's not exactly the same as the case number. But it helps to narrow down the range of what you're looking for. They is probably I was Seiko is that they've made so many case components. They haven't old it's been discontinued desk of even a bigger problem.  I know their sites out there were people are modifying their Seiko watches if you can find one of those sites may be they of something generic.
