How does the full service work? This is another frequently asked question. Rolex's service includes all the necessary servicing operations to ensure the Rolex is functioning correctly and accurately. A Rolex service includes cleaning internal and external components, replacing necessary components, lubricating the movement, calibrating it and certifying it as waterproof. Any specific requirements you may have can be specified when you receive your watch from the staff member. An expert watchmaker assesses the watch.
How Do You Service A Rolex Watch? The internal components of the watch are thoroughly cleaned using ultrasonic vibrations once it has been disassembled. Rolex service plans will be documented in pre-service reports, and their projected costs can be approved. Every Rolex part that no longer meets Rolex's aesthetic and functional standards is replaced with a new Rolex part. Rolex Service Centers can refuse to service a Rolex that have been modified or serviced by third parties.
At Rolex service centers, Rolex bands can be repaired. This service is provided by Rolex, which takes apart the bracelet and ultrasonically cleans every component, including the clasp. Every part of the band is carefully examined by Rolex, and those that fail to meet their standards are replaced. It will cost extra to fix a stretched or replace a Rolex link. Replacement of stainless steel Oystersteel links is less expensive than replacement of solid 18ct gold links. Rolex will send you a quote before doing a replacement. As part of the watch overhaul, Rolex polishes the clasp and bracelet to restore its original luster.
If Rolex replaces crystals, the final service charge will be higher. In cases where the crystal is only scratched, Rolex can replace it or not. It is necessary to repair a cracked or smashed crystal.
A Rolex watchmaker evaluates the dial condition of your Rolex watch and any special requests you may have after it has been received. Rolex Service Center determines whether restoration is optional or mandatory during the assessment. In order to restore the watch, the Rolex Service Center will have to charge an additional fee.
A Rolex special cleaning solution and an industrial ultrasonic machine are used to thoroughly clean the disassembled movement. The dirt, dust, or salt residues on your watch movement will be removed using this method. Any component that does not conform to Rolex's quality and condition requirements will be replaced. As part of the Rolex service, the entire movement is overhauled, which includes replacing the mainspring. By lubricating, each interaction in the movement with special lubricants, friction is minimized and wear is reduced. The movement will remain accurate for a long time if it is done correctly.
The balance wheels on Rolex watches ensure accurate timekeeping. A watchmaker checks the balance wheel electronically after it has been adjusted carefully. During their maintenance, Rolex watches are thoroughly tested and inspected for several days. Also, it is important to ensure that the Rolex timing standards of +2/-2 seconds per day are maintained before returning the watch.
During a Rolex service, all gaskets from the case, tube, and crown are replaced to ensure its waterproof. Tests are performed to ensure the watch meets waterproof requirements. Using an innovative three-step process, a vacuum test, compression test, and condensation test, it will reveal even the tiniest amount of moisture within the case.
A series of quality checks are carried out as part of the Rolex servicing process. To ensure that your watch meets the highest standards, at the end of the service evaluation, it is checked for power reserve level, timing accuracy, and cosmetic appearance one last time. Rolex serviced watches come with a two-year service guarantee after a complete service.
