    My v6s sub bracelet broke, any ideas on how to fix it?

    I bought a v6s a while ago and love the sel and bracelet, but my cat knocked it off the counter onto carpet and the bracelet just broke!



    Has this happened to anyone else? What are my options to fix it? Thanks

        Maybe replace the clasp? The Rolex symbol fell off my V6S bracelet (vanished) and I was able to have BK source me a new clasp.

          I'd try jb weld two part epoxy. It's very strong in my experience.

            I had similair problems, just contact a TD and see if he/she can source a new bracelet. My crown fell off my clasp after 1 month and Mavellous (great guy btw) allowed me to buy one for a reduced price! I believe rolex bracelets are 60 usd retail or something like that?

              Actually i just looked on my clasps both the old V6s and the new v6s clasp look 'welded' and on my noobV1 it looks welded too.... There are some glue's like (certain types of) locktite or 'gorrilla glue' or industrial acrylic glues that might work? These glues are 10-20 euro and they are extremely strong!!

                Hard to replace the v6s bracelet. One of the best when comes to the perfect SEL.

                        does the new ARF bracelet work on a V6s?

                            Replace the clasp. You may have to buy a bracelet and remove the sections attached to the clasp and screw them into the old bracelet. No biggie at all. But any other solution is nothing short of jerry rigged.
                            Replacement of the clasp is the only way to get a professional result

                              I had the same thing happen on my v6s clasp, had it laser welded and it still broke again. Ended up with a clasp from the gate (which is a bit shit but works). An arf clasp could be the best way to go about it
