There are a few obvious reasons to service Rolex Explorer watches, such as when the watch does not work even after it has been wound, or when the crystal has been damaged.
When other circumstances call for it, a Rolex Explorer may need to be sent for service rapidly. It is important for Rolex Explorer watch owners to know if they need immediate repair services. Without this, the watch is more likely to be damaged and will require more repair work.
When it comes to Rolex Explorers, these situations make it necessary to have them serviced as soon as possible:
There's something gritty about the crown of the Rolex Explorer
Rolex Explorer crowns are normally smooth and easily adjustable. A Rolex Explorer watch crown that feels rough, grinds, or just seems different than usual often indicates the need to have the watch serviced.
Dust, dirt, or sand particles may accumulate in your Rolex Explorer crown tube. There is a possibility that the Rolex winding crown is grinding in the stem or the movement. In both cases, a professional watchmaker will be needed to take care of your Rolex Explorer.
The winding crown can be pulled out to stop the watch from running with grinding elements inside until the watch can be serviced. The Rolex Explorer should not be worn until it has been checked by a Rolex watchmaker. You should keep your open Rolex Explorer crown out of water or humid environments. Rolex customer service can assist you if you need advice.
Inside a Rolex Explorer there is condensation
Rolex Explorers are no longer waterproof if condensation appears inside them. Rolex Explorer has been breached and needs immediate service due to the lack of waterproofing.
Rolex Explorer glasses can be fogged by light condensation or showing condensation droplets inside the watch. The Rolex Explorer waterproof seal is compromised by water, regardless of how much moisture is present. As such, it is important to send the Rolex Explorer for service.
Water inside a Rolex Explorer
Rolex Explorers should be sent to a Rolex Service Center immediately if water penetrates the watch. Any type of water can cause damage to a Rolex Explorer movement, but saltwater is the most dangerous.
There is an urgent need to repair Rolex Explorer regardless of the leak cause. A Rolex Explorer that is not serviced quickly will develop more internal water damage, increasing its service cost and the amount of work it will take to fix it. It is not possible to dry a Rolex Explorer by looking for DIY methods on the internet such as uncooked rise or placing it on a heater. Only a Rolex watchmaker is qualified to save a Rolex watch from water damage. Watches like the Rolex Explorer that use mechanical movements are not suitable for these methods.
The Rolex Explorer is too slow
Rolex watches like the Explorer have a high degree of accuracy. The watch should not lose more than 2 seconds per day while being worn throughout the day. On a day where you don't move your wrist much, your Rolex Explorer may not keep wound. When that is the case, you can manually wind the watch for accurate timekeeping.
The watch will work even if you are not wearing it through the night. The time may be lost each day when your Explorer is experiencing a malfunction. A Rolex Explorer should not lose more than 2 seconds in a day, according to the manufacturer's specifications.
In addition to cleaning the Rolex Explorer's internals and applying new lubricant, calibration usually is required. Rolex's Explorer will be subjected to a waterproof test, since it will be opened for servicing. Throughout the world, certified Rolex watchmakers perform these services in Rolex Service Centers.
Continuously losing time on Rolex Explorers may indicate more serious problems with the movement. If part of an assembly is displaced inside, friction may increase, affecting the Rolex Explorer time accuracy. A Rolex Explorer with increased friction will experience faster wear, in addition to higher service costs. Rolex Explorers that lose time should not be ignored.
Rolex Explorer runs way too fast
Rolex Explorers that run faster than usual and add more than two seconds per day indicate a loss of accuracy in the hairspring balance.
Fields of magnetic energy can affect Rolex watches. A magnetic field can be created by many appliances, and the watch can be magnetized by them. Magnetic fields are largely shielded by the Explorer, but the watch is running too quickly if it has been magnetized. A Rolex watch begins to accelerate during magnetization because the coils of the balance spring stick together.
Magnets present in small appliances such as doorbell transformers and electric razors are stronger than those in larger appliances. As small appliances contain little iron, they can leak more magnetic energy. An authorized Rolex watchmaker can help you fix the problems with your Rolex Explorer watch if the accuracy is going down. To regain accuracy, Rolex Explorers need to be serviced by a Rolex Service Center.
