This Rolex was bought in from a customer in Peterborough. The issue was the time not changing correctly.
After stripping the date mechanism I found a small gear had sheared due to a part seizing up. Would you believe I found all of the missing teeth floating under the dial?
After correcting the first issue, the part was sourced and fitted. Date mechanism reassembled. Its now ticking away, and the time changes lovely!
This was a part job, as a full service wasn't required.

A test to make sure the seized part is running correctly.
