A Rolex watchmaker closely examines each individual component of the movement and identifies which components require replacement. Only genuine replacement parts supplied directly by Rolex Headquarters in Switzerland are used.

Step 4

Lubrication And ReAssembly

Using the most advanced lubricants, each functional component of the movement is carefully lubricated to minimise friction and prevent wear. This ensures that the movement of your luxury timepiece will continue to perform accurately.

Step 5

Timing Calibrations

The heart of your watch movement is its balance wheel. To ensure timekeeping precision, the watchmaker meticulously adjusts the balance wheel and electronically tests its timing accuracy. Your watch is then thoroughly tested and carefully observed over a period of several days to verify its performance.

Timing Calibrations

The heart of your Rolex watch movement is its balance wheel, which has a frequency of over 690,000 beats per day. To ensure timekeeping precision, the watchmaker meticulously adjusts the balance wheel and electronically tests its timing accuracy. Your Rolex is then thoroughly tested and carefully observed over a period of several days to verify its performance.

Refinishing the case and Bracelet

The same keen attention to detail that is devoted to servicing the movement of your watch also goes into servicing its case and bracelet. After initial cleaning, the case and bracelet of your watch are closely examined and any worn or damaged components replaced with genuine parts. Your case and bracelet are then expertly refinished and ultrasonically cleaned to restore lustre.
