Glad to hear; let me know how it works out!!! Sorry for the late response. I was on vacation in the Keys with not much opportunity to check in. Rik's a good guy. He'll stand behind his work as well!!!

Wanted to give the final update. Just received My Vintage 1977 Rolex DateJust back from Time care Inc, work performed by Rik Dietel. Watch looks amazing, looks brand new (except for band stretch). Feels different, I can literally feel the quality. I had a cheap service about 5 years ago, and well, you get what you pay for. Anyway, thanks for the advice and help to all who chimed in!

When my wife saw my watch, she literally said "wow, that looks amazing"!

Thanks Rik.

Prices are going up as well. Genuine Rolex parts for vintage watches are discontinued. Independents are cut off. So I would recommend getting it in quickly. Once the "genuine " parts are gone, they are gone.

Thanks! That's what I am expecting for worse case. After daily wear for ~13 years I decided to let it sit after it broke and got a Speedmaster reduced to mix things up, but missing the DJ now.
