Do what? Confused

Just change the face of the watch if you want a different color.

Do you open an '89 Haut Brion and add or Customize your bottle by adding Malbec?

Explain...why can't you change the face of your watch if you want to?

So, your guy will remove four hands, remove all the 18K gold markers and numbers, acid etch the enamel, reapply new enamel color, fire cure enamel, put back all the markings of the watch, illegally add all the trademarked Rolex logos in all colors and certificates, install all four hands back then recalibrate the chronometer to COSC tested standards, install the crystal and bezel to watertight certified standards all while decreasing the value of the watch by 90%+.

I'm confident said person works to the same standards as the Rolex standards are for inspections and certifications as well.

Brilliant!

Remove the hands...no need to remove the markers. No need to remove the Rolex logos or trademarks. Dials / faces come off of other watches and can be interchanged. Never said they increase / decrease value (probably decrease) but I'm not looking to resell any of my watches. I know authorized Rolex dealers do not do this.

Why customize when you can buy a genuine Rolex dial in a different color/marker/numeral configuration to your liking? Then you'll have the option of swapping back and forth, and you'll be adding to the value rather than reducing value (Rolex collectors/buyers detest customized pieces).


Fusion...it is a genuine Rolex...purchased new from an authorized dealer. Just wanted a different face/ dial.

Um, this is your quote, Napacat. Buying a Rolex dial from a Rolex AD and having it changed out is NOT going to some local jeweler and having them Customize WHATEVER dial you want.

You never mentioned or indicated buying a Rolex dial. You said local , customize and whatever you want. Apples and oranges. You were not speaking about buying a Rolex part, period.

Nice try!

I may be wrong but I saw a photo album with dials in place of pictures. You could choose a dial if it fit your watch. Makes better sense? Is this a very uncommon practice?

Serious question...not tongue in cheek. I know it would decrease the value of the watch if trying to sell.
There's nothing wrong with buying a different, genuine Rolex dial that is compatible with your genuine Rolex timepiece. In particular, folks who own the Daytona models can have multiple dials (e.g. both the black and white dials for the iconic stainless steel Daytona model 16520 and 116520).

I have a yellow gold Daytona 116528 that rolled out of the Rolex factory with a champagne dial with diamond markers (it's even noted as such on the Rolex guarantee card). For less than $500, I bought a genuine champagne dial without diamonds as an option to swap out the diamond marker dial. Have yet to change it, but if I ever decide to sell the timepiece, I'll certainly make sure to include pics of it "wearing" both dials.

Yes...that is exactly what I did...really prefer the salmon color dial. Champagne on a Daytona sounds beautiful.
