How to keep your Rolex Running
| ByImam Hussain
A simple basic maintenance program will keep your Rolex in perfect working order for many years and will make you feel like you're wearing a brand new Rolex every time you wear your watch.
The basic service program for the best Rolex watches includes the following steps:
Wear your Rolex regularly
The wearing and regular use of your Rolex will keep the watch in perfect working order. In doing so, you can ensure a constant flow of lubricants in the movement. If they are not used regularly, these lubricants can harden and cause friction in the movement. In the long run, these frictions can damage the operation of the movement.
Be sure to wrap it at least once a week. This will keep the gears of the watch moving, thus preventing hardening of the lubricants.
Cleaning your Rolex
Like any other work of art and complex technology, Rolex watches requires occasional cleaning and maintenance. Dirt, oils and greasy particles accumulate in the watch, for example between the links of the bracelet, the area connecting the case and the bezel and around the Cyclops lens. In case of repeated use, you will clearly see such dirt particles on your Rolex. So clean it.
Remove scratches on the wristband of your Rolex watch
The strap of your Rolex requires special care because it is subject to scratches. This is especially true for the Oyster bracelet with polished center links.
You can easily remove scratches from polished center links with little effort and time. You need is a good polishing cloth that can be chosen from scratch-resistant products made from polished and gold-plated stainless steel surfaces. Such a cloth is soaked in a special liquid for polishing.
Use dry clothe for polishing your Rolex watch. Keep it safe.
Wrap your Rolex
Rolex watches (with the exception of Oysterquartz watches) are perpetual, which means they are automatic. On average, Rolex watches have a 48-hour power reserve. If he is not injured after 48 hours, your Rolex will stop running and appear dead. This is not a major problem, however, as you can wind your watch manually. Simply unscrew the crown in position 2 and wind it about 30 to 40 times.
Most Rolex watches have a depth tested and guaranteed 100 meters. Waterproof nature means that not only can you shower with your watch, but you can also swim with it. Avoid diving with diving equipment when wearing your watch, as they are not designed for deep water. For these aquatic situations, Rolex has created the Submariner and Sea-Dweller models. However, when diving while wearing these models, make sure that the winding crown is screwed onto the housing.
