What Are the Most Common Rolex Watch Repairs?

When you invest in a luxury watch, you want it to last a lifetime. After all, you’re paying for more than just the name; you’re paying for the highest quality craftsmanship and lifetime guarantee. When your Rolex watch stops working, it can be anxiety-inducing. Luckily, Watch & Wares offers expert Rolex watch repair that will get your precious timepiece back in perfect working order in no time. Although everyone wants their Rolex to function perfectly forever, you’ll inevitably incur a problem or two during its lifespan. Here are some of the most common Rolex watch repairs we see here at Watch & Wares.

Watch Strap Replacement

One of the most common places for wear and tear to appear on Rolex watches is the strap. Regardless of whether your watch’s strap is leather, silicone, or metal, years of wear will inevitably cause tattering, tarnishing, or other damage that negatively affects your watch’s look. Luckily, a Rolex watch repair expert can quickly repair or replace the strap of your Rolex watch in no time. We can source original and replacement Rolex straps to suit a variety of watch models from all eras.

Gasket Replacement

Your Rolex’s gaskets are vital to keeping dust, water, perfume, oils, dirt, and other residues from entering exposed components. If your watch has endured excessive dirt, water, or other elements and has now stopped functioning correctly, it may need new gaskets. With Watch & Wares’ gasket and water testing services, we examine the casework of your timepiece to preserve the delicate watch movements from moisture or dirt. Our gasket testing services are also a great preventive measure, so you can detect issues early and avoid the need for costly Rolex watch repair later down the line.

Bezel Replacement

The watch bezel is the ring that surrounds the crystal face and holds it in place. The bezel may be smooth, fluted, rotatable, or even set with gems or diamonds, depending on your Rolex’s model. Most bezels will suffer from some form of wear and tear, most commonly scuffing or scratching. However, they can become severely damaged or fall off entirely if something happens to your watch. Gem-set bezels may also need repair if one or more of the gems falls out of the setting. Luckily, a Rolex watch repair expert such as Watch & Wares can repair or replace your Rolex bezel regardless of the level of wear and tear.

Glass or Crystal Replacement

The exposed and somewhat delicate glass covering the face of your watch can be easily chipped or broken over the years. Whether it’s been dropped and stepped on or merely bumped into a counter, accidents happen that can often result in a damaged crystal face. In this case, you’ll need a Rolex watch repair expert to install a new crystal face on your Rolex watch. Minor dings and scratches may be polished out, while more severe chips and cracks may warrant complete face replacement. A trusted watch repair expert can advise you on what method is most cost-effective for your unique timepiece.
