1. Diagnostic Examination

Before servicing your Rolex watch, we conduct a thorough diagnostic examination that will give you an exact estimate. During this process, every Rolex watch is completely documented upon arrival and all challenges are noted and your watch is photographed in order to document its exterior style and condition.

2. Assessment 

Your Rolex watch movement is completely disassembled (usually into 250 parts) and each part is carefully examined and replaced if necessary with factory certified original manufacturers parts.

All gaskets are systematically changed. The case and bracelet are then individually hand polished and refinished to restore their original luster. After a special cleaning process, your watch case is carefully assembled and we perform the first pressure test.

5. Timekeeping & Calibration

After reassembly we will carefully calibrate the balance wheel which is the heart of the movement. Then we will test the performance and daily accuracy of the movement in five different positions on a sophisticated timing machine to ensure everything is set to manufactures standards. Next, the dial, hands and self-winding rotor mechanism is put in place and the movement is returned to the case. We only use the Chronoscope M1 Automatic timing machine (pictured below) which is used by service centers and other watch factories such as Rolex, Omega, and Tag Heuer.

The newly assembled watch then undergoes 5 days and nights of testing on a specially designed wrist motion simulator, which recreates the normal activity the watch would encounter when worn on your wrist.

6. Pressure Testing & Waterproofing

The  watch case is  tested to ensure it meets water-resistance requirements. The three-step process – a vacuum test, a compression test and a condensation test – will reveal the presence of even the smallest amount of moisture inside the watch case.
