    hii,
    I have come across a number of vintage Rolexes that have been sent to Rolex Service Centres for servicing and these watches arrive with replaced dials, hands, inserts, and polished up. All of the things that vintage collectors, and those of us who just like the looks of the originals, want.The question is, what do these Service Centres do with the old parts? Rolex must know (a) that these old parts are worth a lot of money; (b) that they devalue the watch when they replace external and internal parts; (c), that they lose their own heritage in doing so.
    Thanks!

    I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
