222 Bracelet center links

Hi,

First time poster, long time reader here.

I recently acquired a 222 Square and had it sent in for a service and bracelet polish.  There was a large scratch/mark on one of the center links, something I foolishly did my self when cleaning the caked in grime between the links.  Unfortunately VC could not refinish the scratch.  (See attached pics)

Does anyone know of a source of 222 bracelet parts or can recommend someone who can confidently help fix this?  I circled back with the Boutique here in NYC but without resolution (yet).

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Chris

10 days!! Love this watch.

I don't know where you could find a center link other than from VC, have you asked them? Did VC say why they could not remove the scratch? It's way too deep?

Yes VC said too deep and that given where the link is it's actually part of the case so it would need a whole new bracelet.  

I'm waiting to hear back from some WatchMaker contacts as well, maybe see if one of them has the skill to refinish it.
