What is included in the price of Rolex full service is one of the most frequently asked questions. Rolex provides all servicing operations to ensure that the Rolex functions correctly and accurately. Rolex services include cleaning internal and external components, replacing necessary components, lubricating the movement, calibrating it, and certifying it waterproof. A member of staff who receives your watch will note any requests you may have. Following that, the watch is evaluated by a watchmaker.
What Happens When A Rolex Is Serviced? The watch is completely dismantled, and all of its elements are ultrasonically cleaned. Pre-service reports will document Rolex service plans, and you can approve their projected costs. During the servicing process, Rolex inspects every component and replaces any that don't meet the company's functional or aesthetic standards with a new one. It is not possible to service a Rolex that has been serviced or modified by an unauthorized party at a Rolex Service Center.
The bracelet can be cleaned and repaired. Rolex technicians then take apart the bracelet link by link, including the folding clasp, and clean every single component in an ultrasonic cleaning machine. If any parts of the band no longer meet Rolex's strap functionality, they are replaced. There may be a charge for repairing or replacing Rolex links. Stainless steel links are less expensive to replace than solid 18ct gold links. Rolex will discuss the cost of a replacement with you before it is carried out. A full polishing will be performed on the bracelet and clasp at the end of the overhaul service in the same manner used by Rolex factories.
It is possible for Rolex to replace crystals, but this will result in a higher final service charge. You can choose whether to replace the damaged crystal or not if it is only scratched. Cracked or smashed crystals will require mandatory repair.
When the Rolex watchmaker examines the dial of your watch, he will address any requests you may have. In the event that a restoration is needed, it will be determined at the time of an assessment by the Rolex Service Center. There will be an additional charge for Rolex's service for restoration.
The parts of the disassembled movement are cleaned thoroughly using an industrial ultrasonic machine and Rolex special cleaning solutions. Through this method, any dirt, dust, or salt residues from your watch movement will be thoroughly removed. Upon inspection, they replace any components that do not meet Rolex's quality and condition requirements with brand new Rolex parts. Rolex also offers a replacement of the mainspring in addition to a complete overhaul of the movement. Each working gear of the movement is carefully lubricated with special lubricants to minimise friction and wear. This will result in accurate movement over time.
Rolex watch movements are equipped with very precise balance wheels, which ensure accurate timekeeping. A watchmaker tests the accuracy of the balance wheel electronically. During an official Rolex service, the watch is thoroughly tested over several days and its performance is observed. Prior to returning a Rolex, it is important to make sure the standard timing of +2/-2 seconds per day is maintained.
During a Rolex service, all gaskets from the case, tube, and crown are replaced to ensure its waterproof. A watch must be rigorously tested for water resistance. Using three tests, they are able to detect even tiny amounts of moisture within a case: a vacuum test, a compression test, and a condensation test.
The Rolex servicing process is accompanied by a series of quality checks. For the most consistent quality, your watch is thoroughly examined one last time following the manufacturers' specifications, including its power reserve, accuracy, and aesthetic appearance. Rolex watches are covered by a two-year warranty after they have been serviced by the company.
