| A lot
of people wonder why jewels are so important,
well simply if to you had a metal post going through a metal hole after a few years or so the hole would wear out and become a bit oval which will affect the watch, if you put a jewel in this hole with a bit of high grade oil and put a metal post into the hole it will keep it's shape forever!

Many thanks to Mr Hugh Padgham, record producer (U.K) for such artists as David Bowie, Sting, Sir Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Elton John, Peter Gabriel, etc, and the list will go on and on...
He had his ROXXX serviced in the UK, but it came back to him in less than perfect order, and the beautiful dome acrylic crystal was gone. The Watch company that serviced it basically said "too bad"( by law I can't give out details). He then contacted me here at Darlor, in (formally) Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and went on to send his very expensive ROLXX to me, 2 weeks later Hugh had his favorite ROLXX on his wrist. The compliments we received from Mr Padgham were worth publishing on my page as my way of saying thank you, as he really is a special, good will person. What a gentleman, and genuinely nice, which goes a long way with me.
I deal with a large number of Hollywood productions, and many, many movies here in Montréal, Toronto, and Vancouver. I have had coffees with A list actors, even lunches with many many top people in the film industry, as well as the amazing prop managers, and we chat about watches (can't give out the names not allowed to publish) . We are also proud to have as clients Lawyers, Doctors, Accountants, Engineers, Pilots, Politicians, Bus drivers, Nurses, etc, and even other watchmakers, as sometimes there are repairs beyond their capacities so they turn to me, since I love a challenge!
Out of the many, many people I have met and dealt with, famous or not, Hugh really sticks out. Still to this day, with 23 years dealing in this business, when a complete stranger sends me a vintage, rare, expensive ROLxx diver wrist watch in complete faith, it amazes me, and I thank goodness people do send their timepieces with confidence. Hugh was amazed it came back exactly as he wanted, even though he thought it impossible, he had to call me right away and tell me how amazed he was. As I told Hugh, this is what we do, if we can't do it right, no matter how much work goes into the piece, we will not charge.
So here you have it, 6500 miles by FedEx to my lab in complete trust like 1000's of other transactions from all over the world; Boston, Los Angeles, Viet-Nam, Hong-Kong, New Zealand, to Argentina we have serviced pieces from almost every corner of this world, and we will continue to do so.
So thank all of you for the support over the last 23 years, we will continue to do our very best for all of you.
