LUXURY WATCH GUIDE
REVIEWS TIPS AND WATCH MAINTENANCE
Don't let your watch become a showpiece : If you have bought your new timepiece and put it in case as a display art then you are damaging your investment. Just like cars watches need to be worn. The first issue which might happen is that the oil inside the watch may dry up.
This is due to non moment of parts. This can cause blockage to the other moving parts. So if you are not wearing it's better to keep it in winding box. For those who don't know about winding box let me tell you it's a simple device that automatically do the winding for you.
Although winding box is not necessary but having it will add up even more years to your Rolex overall usable time.
Cleaning your watch
Rolex watches are made to last several years. It wont require much servicing unless its 10 or above years and that too you should leave it professionals but one thing even the Rolex can't avoid is dirt and debris collection on the surface as well as inside the bracelet links. This debris when left as it is build up pressure on the bracelet joints and over a course of time it can lead to over sizing issue. So long story short cleaning is important.
How to clean your Rolex
First rub of any dirt with ad dry soft cloth. This ensure that no dirt is there on the surface. For the bracellet use small brush to go deep sometimes debris stuck between bracelt links. Stuck sand is abrasive and it can cause scratch off the surface overtime. Afer cleaning its time to rinse you Rolex with water. You can even submerge it as most Rolex are water resistant. The only thing you might want to be careful about is the winding crown it's should be tightly screwed with the case other than that you are good to go. After cleaning rub your Rolex with dry cloth and you are done.
Polishing Your Rolex
While using Rolex for years it's natural to get some sort of minor scratches and many owners ask me whether it's safe to polish such scratches. Small answers "Yes". If it's a minor scratch you can do so but for the major ones you can leave it to the professionals.
You don't nee to mention separately about polishing to professionals as during servicing the company automatically polishes your watch as apart of servicing process.
Some owners like me likes to keep the scratches and i have met many other who share the same idea. The reason behind keeping those scratches is that every mark has a story or event associated with it and removing those is like delting a memory but there is an another aspect if you have a vintage Rolex which is "i'ts Price" polishing a vintage watch directly depriciate it's resell value as collectors love to buy in original condition.
So if you are fan of these watch make sure to follow the above tips and let's be a proud Rolex owner.
