Rolex watches are known for their exceptional beauty, outstanding reliability, and precision.

These timepieces are designed to last for generations, but a Rolex watch service is recommended to keep them running perfectly and looking great.

In this guide, we will cover everything you need to know about Rolex watch servicing.

Why service your Rolex?

Servicing your Rolex watch is essential to ensure that it continues to perform at its best. Over time, the movement of your watch can become less accurate, and the bracelet and case can develop scratches and marks from wear.

Regular servicing can help restore your watch to its former glory and maintain its value.

How often should you service your Rolex watch?

Rolex recommends that you have your watch serviced every ten years. However, if you wear your watch daily or expose it to harsh conditions, such as water or extreme temperatures, you may need to service it more frequently. Vintage Rolex watches may also require more frequent servicing.

What does a Rolex watch service include?

A full Rolex service includes a complete service of the movement, a polish of the case and bracelet, and a thorough examination of the watch’s overall condition.

Highly trained Rolex experts will perform a servicing to exacting standards, ensuring that your watch looks and performs like new. Whether a vintage watch or a slightly newer model, many Rolex owners opt to get their Rolex serviced as a form of investment.

Rolex polishing is an essential part of a complete service. The polishing process removes scratches and marks from the watch’s case and bracelet, restoring its appearance to as close as possible to its original condition. A polished Rolex watch looks like new, making it more enjoyable to wear and helping to maintain its value.

Rolex refurbishment

If your Rolex watch has visible wear and tear, it may require refurbishment. A refurbishment includes a complete service, a polish, and any necessary repairs or replacement parts.

Refurbishing your watch can make it look like new again, which is especially important for vintage Rolex watches.
