Rolex Service Mailing Instructions


The instructions might change, so you'll have to follow the instructions Rolex sends you. Here is an outline of what a Rolex Service Center might ask:

  • Complete and remove the Rolex form's bottom section. Your Rolex GMT-Master must be accompanied by this form.
  • Sturdy boxes are the best packaging for Rolex watches. Rolex GMT-Master should be securely positioned inside boxes so that it does not move around.
  • The original Rolex box you received when you purchased your Rolex GMT-Master should not be used for packaging or sent to the Rolex Service Center.
  • The Rolex company suggests wrapping the Rolex GMT-Master with several layers of soft tissue paper and then covering it with bubble wrap.
  • Put tissue paper or another packing material in the box. The Rolex GMT-Master must be placed in the middle of the box.
  • Rolex GMT-Master watches should not be able to move within the box because of the packing material.
  • Place the completed form on top of the packing material along with any relevant documentation, such as the Rolex warranty card.
  • For accurate processing in Rolex's service centre database, complete the Rolex's form legibly.
  • Brown paper tape should be used to close and secure the box. Plastic tape should not be used in order to prevent package tampering.
  • Mail your package to your chosen Rolex Service Center.

Green Warranty Card for the Rolex Servicing

Rolex watches must be accompanied by the Rolex warranty plastic card. You may wish to contact Rolex Service Center if you do not have the card before you send your Rolex GMT-Master.

Checklist For Sending Your Rolex By Post


1. Pack the Rolex GMT Master according to Rolex instructions

If you are sending Rolex a parcel, make sure that it is taped with brown paper. All parcels sealed in plastic or with cellophane tape will be returned to the Rolex Service Centre. Watches will be returned immediately by Rolex.

2. Warranty Card for the Rolex

When sending the Rolex GMT-Master, include the Rolex mailing form as well as the warranty card when instructed.

3. Parcel sent to Rolex via registered mail

If you are sending a parcel to a Rolex Service Center, it will need a tracking number and signature

3. Drop-Off And Pick-Up At A Local Rolex Retailer


On the green plastic card that you receive when receiving your Rolex GMT-Master watch, you will find the name of the Rolex Dealer where the watch was purchased.

Regardless of whether you purchased the Rolex in their store or not, Rolex retailers provide aftercare service. 

Rather than service your Rolex GMT-Master, the local Rolex retailer acts as a pickup and drop-off point. The authorized Rolex dealer can send back your Rolex watch for servicing if you drop it off. Rolex has a store locator on their website if you do not know where your nearest Rolex Boutique or Authorized Rolex store is.

Whether Google maps distinguishes between an official Rolex store and any other store that sells Rolex watches is unclear. Rolex.com, therefore, is the best resource for finding local Rolex dealers.
