    Broken lug on vintage 1930s Rolex

    Hello,

    I have recently come into possession of a 1930s ladies Rolex from a relative, in original condition (except the strap). Unfortunately when I tried to get the strap replaced, one side of the lug came off. Needless to say I am extremely worried and am wondering if it can be soldered back without replacing the case. Here are some pictures of the damage, more in the album here: http://imgur.com/a/4RyPK

    Please lend me your thoughts. Possible to be joined back without replacing the original case? This is my first vintage watch.

    Depends on the skills of your local watchmaker or jeweler. The movement must be removed, the case cleaned and prepped, and then resoldered. Not tribal, but not impossible.

    Trivial, not tribal. Stupid autocorrect...

    Oh, I thought this was ex-pat lingo we in the Great Lakes were not 'in' on

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
