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.
