Any idea how do they get all the used parts? I thot rolex always practise a 1 to 1 exchange policy for all their parts?

And let's say u bring in a watch for servicing without a bracelet, would they just add a bracelet for you or would they insist you bring them 1 bracelet for them to replace?
rolex uk allows their customers to buy bezels....or even change dial colours (e.g. black daytona to white daytona dial).....so parts can come in from other countries....nowadays with globalisation.....can get parts from anywhere......one can only pray they are original...

2nd scenario not so sure.....i think if u bring a watch head only....they will service...but if u wanna add bracelet, they probably wont do it

cannot change to any pattern u likes.

TUNG CENTER WILL NOT ENTERTAINS yr watch if it is not in the original pattern.

ie bezel strap dial etcs

they will ask u go elsewhere.

There is a different for some model... example GMT2.. it got many kinds of flavor as long as the parts are original they will not reject you

the champange dial with sapphires & brilliants is an option for the 16618 (full gold sub)..

Really mah? I've seen a gold-steel TT sub with the champagne dial and bling bling leh... then again, the blue face is quite unique in the world of Rolex... maybe wear a few years till i sianz already then i go for mega-bling dial. At that time I should be to afford full pave diamond wedding ring too! Mwahaha.
