    Synchron SUB 300T BOR bracelet repair

    Afternoon All! I recently picked up a Synchron 2nd generation SUB 300T that came with its original bracelet - unfortunately it's a little worse for wear and missing a couple of links and a slightly mishapen end-piece. Can anyone here recommend someone to repair it at all (preferably in the UK). I've currently got it on an old Expandro bracelet:

    Member "BERNIE" has repaired them before, and I believe he's in the UK. Send him a PM with pics of the bracelet, and see if he can help. Congrats on the vintage Sub.

    Excellent, thanks for that! I'll have to stick some better photographs up at some point as well.

    Hello Hilts,

    the expandro Chain Bracelet looks pretty cool on the watch and gives it a massive 70´s Look.

    Subcrawler is right I´ve repaired quite some DOXA BOR´s. For members here and formy own collection.

    Below two threads where you can see some before and after pics. I have several spares at hand for the DOXA BOR-bracelets and up to a certain level of damage I am also able to repair bent or non ratcheting clasps.

    Post a few pics of the broken bracelet and I can give you some info on how much effort it takes to bring it back to life.

    Regards Bernie

    Blimey, you've certainly done a good job there! I'll get some photographs done over the next couple of days and post them up - the main issue is missing beads and a dented end piece.

    I managed to get two of those Expandro bracelets The other is on my Portex (which has a rather familiar looking case):

    looks like you're a few beads short of a full deck....
    Hope Bernie can help.

    There are a couple of beads further down on the bracelet not attached to anything else but yep there's about two or three missing in total!

    I thought that the 300t was my first Doxa however after a bit more investigating it turns out that the Portex has a Doxa case - I recognised the case ref (913) as being one of Jenny's Sealabs which in turn was produced from a Doxa case (looks like a sub 300 or 300t case).
