Servicing Your Rolex Watch

Servicing a Rolex watch is a thorough process that requires expertise, precision, and specialized tools. While it is tempting to attempt DIY maintenance, it’s crucial to understand the complexities involved. If you are a collector or enthusiast, it is advisable to enlist the expertise of a professional. Atlanta Luxury Watches offers comprehensive services, including Rolex servicing and maintenance. Let’s look at what a complete Rolex watch servicing entails to help you make an informed decision.


The first step in servicing a luxury watch is disassembly. A skilled watchmaker carefully dismantles the timepiece, noting the arrangement of each component. Like most luxury watches, Rolex pieces are designed with precision, meaning many small parts work together seamlessly. Disassembling the watch requires patience and attention to detail to avoid damaging any delicate components.


After disassembling the Rolex watch successfully, each part undergoes thorough cleaning. This helps to remove any accumulated dirt, dust, or debris to ensure optimal performance. Sometimes, experts from our watch store may employ ultrasonic cleaning and specialized solutions to achieve a pristine finish without damaging the delicate components.

Replacement of Worn or Damaged Components

During the servicing process, we can pinpoint any worn or damaged components and replace them with genuine Rolex parts. This is a vital phase in maintaining the integrity and longevity of the watch. The brand’s commitment to quality means only certified watchmakers have access to genuine replacement parts, ensuring the authenticity and reliability of the timepiece.

Reassembly and Reapplication of Lubricants

After cleaning and replacing worn parts, the watch is reassembled carefully. Each component is meticulously placed back into its proper position, following the manufacturer’s specifications. In addition, specialized lubricants ensure smooth movement and minimize friction within the watch mechanism. Proper lubrication is also essential for preserving the accuracy and longevity of the timepiece.

Timing Calibration and Adjustments

Once reassembled, the Rolex watch undergoes timing calibration and adjustments. A skilled watchmaker can perform this to ensure the movement of the watch and accurate timekeeping. This involves precise adjustments to the balance wheel, escapement, and other components to achieve optimal performance. As mentioned, luxury watches are renowned for their precision, and meticulous calibration is essential to maintain this standard.

Polishing and Refinishing

Besides mechanical servicing, Rolex watches often undergo polishing and refinishing to restore their appearance. This helps to remove blemish on the case, bracelet, and bezel, leaving the timepiece looking as good as new. Rolex’s attention to detail extends beyond the internal mechanisms to the external aesthetics, ensuring that every aspect of the watch meets the highest standards of craftsmanship.

Post-Service Testing

Before returning the Rolex watch to its owner, it undergoes rigorous testing to ensure its performance and functionality. We conduct various tests, including water resistance, accuracy, and power reserve, are conducted to verify that the watch meets Rolex’s stringent standards. The Rolex watch is deemed ready for use after passing these tests with flying colors.
