HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU

HAVE A ROLEX SERVICED?

It is recommended that your Rolex be serviced every 10 years for continued

accuracy and waterproofness. Rolex watches should be serviced on a regular

basis, according to official Rolex retailers and service centres.

To preserve sustained accuracy and waterproofness, Rolex watches should be

repaired every ten years, depending on the model and real-world usage. Your Rolex

watch should be professionally serviced at an Official Rolex Retailer or Service

Centre on a periodic basis.

Rolex watches need to have their oils replaced at set intervals. Time and heat will

cause the synthetic lubricants used by watch manufacturers to evaporate. The

build-up of debris and grime will be caused by the mechanical sheering caused by

the pivots running dry. It is possible that they will eventually break down. This is

why it is so important to service the watch before it reaches that stage. The watch

movement should be cleaned and serviced regularly in order to prevent internal

wear.

Watches made by Rolex are water-resistant. Sea-Dweller and Submariner Deep

Sea models are practically waterproof. This could be the single reason why you

should service your watch regularly: if water resistance is important to you. Waterresistant

watches need special care and attention; Rolex watches are no

exception. You should have your watch regularly tested when you submerge it

underwater frequently. Your local authorised Rolex dealer can conduct dry

pressure tests. If a 100m water-resistant watch can only endure 30m or 3ATM of

depth, it's likely that you'll need to get it serviced. Rolex watches are not

permanently water resistance and require periodical maintenance.

How Much Does A Rolex Watch Service Cost?

Services for Rolex watches typically cost about $800. Rolex overhauls normally

cost anywhere between $800 and $1500 depending on your model, its condition,

and the type of work to be done. A certified watchmaker prepares an estimate of

the work that needs to be done after inspecting the watch. Without your

permission and financial approval, Rolex will not service your watch.

Typically, independent watch services are cheaper than authorized Rolex service

centers, but Rolex does not approve the work. An independent watch repair firm

will charge between $350 and $950 to service a watch. The guarantee on your

Rolex watch will be voided if it is serviced by an independent watchmaker.

Although maintaining your Rolex watch may seem complicated due to its value

and collectability, it is actually an integral part of its ownership, so servicing should

be done when the watch is in its best condition. Rolex recommends servicing your

watch every 10 years. Servicing is an integral part of ownership, so you should do

it when the watch is in good condition.

What Happens During A Rolex Service?

All essential operations are conducted as part of the Rolex service in order to

restore the precision, functionality and appearance of the Rolex . Cleaning is

included in the watch service both internally and externally, including the

tachometer, chromalight, magnetic shield, Oyster water resistant case and the

perpetual-movement. Rolex calibre will be take aparted, and every part will be

thoroughly cleaned. All impurities and grime are removed from the components

during an ultrasonic bath. A 904l stainless steel Jubilee or President bracelet can

only be disassembled by a Rolex horologer who is officially certified. To put it

another way, each folding Oysterlock safety clasp and links will be dismantled and

cleaned individually.

The Rolex Service Center will study every piece of the movement (mainspring

barrel, dial train, gears, escape wheel, pallet fork, oscillating weight, hairspring) and

replace those that are worn out. Before recasing the watch, lubrication will be

applied to the movement. It's required to lightly lubricate the top and bottom

jewels of the Balance Staff. At the bottom and top of the escape wheel and pallet

fork, there is a need for lubrication. oil is needed for the operation of the gear

trains. In order to re-oil the Mainspring, the qualified watchmaker uses a one-dip

procedure to clean and re-grease the springs.

To control COSC (contrôle officiel suisse des chronomètres) precision +2/-2

seconds per day, the Rolex superlative movement will be inspected and adjusted.

The Rolex crown (twinlock or triplock), bidirectional or unidirectional bezel (fluted,

domed, tachymeter or cerachrom), bracelet and oyster case will all be polished

back to their original lustre by Rolex servicing. Rolex's superalloys, such as

Everose, Rolesor, and Oystersteel, can be gently polished to eliminate small

scratches. Rolex can polish 18k white gold, 18k yellow gold, 18k rose gold, and

950 platinum in addition to stainless steel 904L.

Several gaskets in water-resistant Oyster casings are replaced automatically

during the watch service. Replacement of the Triplock screw down crown gaskets

(Submariner, Daytona, Sea Dweller) or Twinlock screw down crown gaskets

(DayDate, Datejust, Oyster, GMT MASTER) gaskets is included in standard Rolex

service prices. According to the model requirements, the watch will also be

controlled for waterproofing: waterproof to 100 metres / 330 feet (most Rolexes),

waterproof to 300 metres / 1000 feet (Submariner), waterproof to 1220 metres /

4000 feet (Sea Dweller) and waterproof to 3900 metres / 12800 feet (Deep Sea).

The water pressure of Rolex watches is tested in the same way as it is tested at

the Rolex manufacture in Switzerland.

Can Rolex Service Without Papers?

Rolex will service an authentic Rolex that lacks original documents. Many Rolex

owners do not possess the paperwork. The watch may be serviced at any

authorized service center.

The Rolex paperwork that comes with a new Rolex wristwatch is the green plastic

card. It has the appearance of a banking card. The title 'Rolex document' or 'Rolex

documentation' comes from the fact that it was originally a paper document. Rolex

cards are similar to watch certification cards. The model reference number and

unique serial number are included. There is a stamp on the green plasticcard with

information about the Rolex store, as well as the date the watch was purchased.

Hence, this card serves as the Rolex warranty card. There was only one green

plasticcard for each Rolex timepiece. A lost or stolen card will not be replaced by

Rolex SA.

For several valid grounds, original Rolex papers can be missing. The Rolex

maintenance can be performed without the need of any documents. You must

know whether your Rolex has been modified or serviced by an independent

watchmaker without the paperwork. Another useful piece of information is where

it was purchased or who owned it previously. It would be great if you had any

documentation linked to its acquisition. Rolex will service a Rolex without

https://prestigewatchclub.com/rolex/ November 2021

documents if it is an authentic Rolex, has not been modified, and is not a stolen

timepiece.

Even if you don't have the original certification papers, Rolex will service your

watch if you ship it to them in the mail or bring it in to one of their Official Rolex

Retailers and Service Centers.
