Your Rolex Can Last a Lifetime
Margi Brothers Watch Repair wants to ensure that your Rolex performs as well throughout your life as on the day you bought it. All that is needed is to give your Rolex just the smallest amount of care.
Wearing Your Watch for the First Time
Before putting it on for the first time, or if your Rolex has stopped, a Rolex watch must be wound manually to function properly. To wind your watch manually, unscrew the winding crown completely, then turn it several times clockwise (turning in the other direction has no effect). A minimum of 25 turns is required for adequate partial winding. Carefully screw the crown back down against the case to ensure your ROLEX is waterproof. The watch will then be wound automatically as long as it is worn on your wrist.
Wearing Your Rolex for the First Time
Manually Winding Your Watch
When you wear your Rolex daily, you don’t need to wind it. If you take it off and set it aside, the watch will retain its “charge” for two or more days, depending on your model. However, if you haven’t worn your Rolex for more than a couple of days and your watch has stopped, Margi Brothers recommends that you manually wind it when you set the time before putting it on.
Setting the Time and Date
Rolex watches can be set by unscrewing the crown and pulling it out to the second notch. The second hand is stopped, allowing you to set the time. Each model has its own detailed user guide and functions that may vary, please download the appropriate guide for your model.
Thanks to Rolex expertise, your watch will require little day-to-day care. You can help preserve your watch’s luster by cleaning it occasionally with a microfiber cloth. You can also wash the case and bracelet from time to time using soapy water and a soft brush. Before cleaning your watch, always ensure that the winding crown is screwed down properly against the case to guarantee waterproofing.
Water is the natural element for a Rolex with a metal bracelet, including salt-water from the sea. All Rolex wristwatches are waterproof to depths of at least 100 meters for Oyster Perpetual models, and 50 meters for Cellini models. All you have to do after diving or a day at the beach is simply to rinse your watch with fresh water in order to remove any salt or sand deposits.
Wearing Your Watch While Showering Should do the Trick.
The Oyster case of your Rolex protects it from water and makes it completely waterproof and dustproof. In order to maintain the watch’s waterproofing, the Oyster case needs to be properly sealed. The crown of your Rolex screws down tightly to create a hermetic seal like the hatch of a submarine. When you reset the time, date or when you wind the watch manually, it is extremely important to ensure that you have screwed down the crown until it can’t turn any further.
You can play sports with a Rolex on your wrist as the Rolex Oyster case provides your watch’s movement with optimal protection against shocks. Rolex prizes the accuracy of their watches and performs the most stringent tests on each and every model to ensure their precision in real-life usage.
A Rolex watch is a marvel of mechanical engineering. The “heart” of a Rolex, its movement, is powered by you: as you move your wrist throughout your day, the Perpetual rotor inside the watch gently swings, transferring energy to the mainspring of the watch, providing a constant and stable power source that regulates your timepiece.
Your Rolex’s “heart” will be influenced by your unique lifestyle, if at any moment you want to optimize the performance of your watch. Margi Brothers will gladly test its accuracy and, if needed, finely regulate the balance wheel to make sure that your Rolex is uniquely tuned to you.
