If you have just purchased a Rolex watch, you are hopefully extremely pleased with your purchase. This brand is one of the most well known and highest quality watches in the world and Rolex owners tend to be people who have a taste for elegance and an eye for luxury. Because a Rolex watch is considered an investment, it is important that you keep it looking as good as new for many years to come. There are two things that you will need in order to do this… a focus on home maintenance and an authorized Rolex repair retailer.
Basic Rolex Care at Home
Part of the maintenance that will keep a Rolex looking like new for decades will be done at home. One of the best things that you can do for your Rolex is to actually wear it. If you buy a Rolex and store it away, eventually, with no stimulation, the moving parts, like the band, will lose its lubrication and you will need to seek out unnecessary Rolex watch band repair. By wearing your Rolex watch regularly, you will find that it moves comfortably when on the wrist and will not feel stiff. This stiffness is what can cause big problems down the road due to lack of lubrication.
Rolex Maintenance from an Authorized Dealer
Speaking of lubrication, one of the things you will need to do, at least every 1-3 years if you want it to look new, is take your Rolex in for professional maintenance. You should make sure that you are only taking your Rolex into an authorized retailer as others simply don’t know the Rolex as well as a Rolex brand authorized store. They will likely have a list of maintenance items that they will want to provide including lubrication, polishing, professionally cleaning and any repairs. For instance, if the band is a bit loose, you can have them perform a professional Rolex watch band repair during the maintenance.
It is important to realize that there are authorized retailers for Rolex throughout the country, many of them accepting watches through the mail. This means that you don’t necessarily need to take your watch to a local shop if you feel like another store, in another city or state, can do a better job.
The important thing, when you have a Rolex, is to not take it just anywhere for maintenance and repairs. You have spent a lot of money on this watch and certainly will not want to risk that investment by taking it somewhere that is not authorized by the Rolex brand.
By taking the time to properly care for your Rolex watch, you can be sure that it will last for decades and can even plan now to pass it along to a new generation.
