Hello, I'm reaching out for help with my 16750. The hour marker on at 7 o'clock is off. I took it to the local authorized dealer and they said they have to replace the dial. Obviously, I want to keep the original dial.

Can anyone point me to someone who can reattach/repair the dial? Thanks in advance.

I would probably send it to someone, dont try to get it fixed locally if there isnt a great person there. Look at Ridley in Texas or ABC in LA.

There are at least 2/3 excellent watchmakers in the loop, Kent from Fine Swiss Watch Repair comes to mind.

I ended up going to Kent. He was awesome. 3 day turn around with a price that couldn't be beat. He is working on my Tag as I type.

I would only use Tommy Taylor for Rolex repair, and any specialists he might recommend. Contact him at rolexwatchtime@att.net (full disclosure: he is one of the mods, and I have no connection to him other than I have used his services before).
