    First Rolex

    I think it is about time and I have long been arguing with myself. I´m about to buy this watch as my first Rolex after a couple of classy Omega Seamasters. What do you think about the Stretch for this Rolex Datejust. Is it too much? Thanks in advance!

    For me it would be.

    You could always put a leather strap on it and send the bracelet to Michael Young @ classicwatchparts.com and he'll send it back looking almost brand new for a small fee (for a SS jubilee bracelet, less than 200 dollars iirc).

    I prefer a Rolex on a Rolex steel bracelet. If you need a barcelet repair, send it to Al Archer

    Yes, this stretch is too much for me to endure. I would change it for safety and for my non-broken heart.

    No way. If you are going to spend the big bucks to buy a Rolex, don't put it on a mickey mouse bracelet. Getting the bracelet repaired would be my advice, or invest in a high quality strap, or both.
