 Tips for Taking Care of Your Rolex or any other watch

 

ENJOY THE ARTICLE AND ENJOY WEARING YOUR TIMEPIECE

 

Rolex watches are not your average run-of-the-mill watch. Rather, they are pieces of mechanical wonder and craftsmanship. It is important to know how to maintain and get the most out of your investment. But how does one protect, clean, and maintain their investment? Below are several suggestions for getting the most out of your Rolex, while also maintaining its value.

Wear Your Rolex Often

Why invest in something if you do not wish to use it? Wearing your Rolex not only brings enjoyment to you the owner, but also, in many cases, keeps the watch running. Rolex’s Perpetual motion movements, for example, are kept running by subtle movement, like that of the wrist when the watch is being worn. Thus, to keep from having to wind the watch it is important to wear or gently rock it at least once every 48 hours. If a watch is left to sit and “die,” lubricants within the watch can harden, causing friction or damage when the watch is again in motion. If the watch is only intended for special occasions, it is important to maintain it by gently moving it once every 48 hours or winding it at least once a week.

Winding a Rolex

If you choose to, or find the need to, wind your watch, be sure to do so in the proper way. To wind your watch properly, place it on a soft, flat surface. Never wind your watch while wearing it. To begin winding, simply unscrew the crown to position 2 and wind it about 30 or 40 times. When you have finished winding, screw the crown back down. Rolex has a built in device to ensure the watch is not overwound. Thus, do not skimp on the winding motions, as you want to fully wind the watch to ensure continued optimal performance.

Winding a Rolex does not always immediately start the watch. Never shake a watch that is not working. Rather, gently rock it (as you would if you were wearing it on your wrist), to begin the movement. If this does not work, lay the watch down and allow it time to begin on its own. If it continues to not work, take the watch to a certified Rolex dealer who can assess if the watch has been damaged. If it is damaged, they will return it to Rolex for repair.

If you watch has a perpetual movement it will wind itself simply by wearing it. Wearing your Rolex often will maintain the viscosity of the lubricants in your watches movement.

Washing Your Watch

While it is important to wear your Rolex, wearing a Rolex daily can quickly cause it to get dirty or dull looking. It is important to keep the watch clean, as dirt not only affects the look of the watch, but can also affect how it works. You can wash your Rolex, as Rolex Oyster technology offers water resistance up to 300 meters in most models. If a Rolex is not waterproof it is not recommended that the watch get wet. If washing a Rolex is a waterproof model, the wearer doesn’t have to worry about water damage, thus can wear the watch in the shower or pool. However, to maintain the polished look and avoid scratching, it is best to avoid water contact unless cleaning the watch.

There are important steps to take when cleaning the watch. Firstly, begin by washing your hands to remove any excess dirt and oil. Before cleaning, ensure that the winding crown is tightly screwed into the case to ensure no water is able to penetrate the interior of the watch. Using lukewarm water, rinse off the watch to remove any loose particles. Next, use ammonia free, mild soap to gently wash the exterior of the watch. Utilizing a tool, such as an old soft toothbrush, can ensure dirt is removed from all crevices, especially between bracelet links which can be difficult to clean. Once you are done scrubbing, gently submerge the watch into water in short intervals. Continuing to use lukewarm water, gently wash away the remaining soap and dirt. To finish the cleaning process, use a soft, clean cloth to gently pat the watch dry. A blow dryer set on low can also be used to dry hard-to-reach places on the watch, such as in between links.

 Scratches

Wearing and general use of your Rolex watch will ultimately result in scratches. However, there are steps one can take to avoid some scratching. For example, lay your Rolex on a soft cloth or in its box at night, avoiding direct contact with the watch’s bracelet, another piece of metal, or wood.

Unfortunately, if one plans on wearing their Rolex, scratches are unavoidable. Prone to scratches, the bracelet of the Rolex is an area that may need extra attention. The bracelet can be easily polished once every few months, which will return the bracelet near to its original look. To remove scratches, use a quality polishing cloth specially designed for stainless steel and gold, to ensure to not add additional scratches. These quality cloths should come soaked in a special polishing liquid. When polishing or cleaning, do not use chemicals or cleaners that are not designed for jewelry. It is also important to only use these cloths on the watch’s polished surface, as ingredients in the polish can damage the alternative brushed finish. Only about a minute is needed for polishing, with only a moderate amount of pressure being used as the cloths easily remove scratches. Use the flow or “grain” of the metal to determine how to polish the watch. For example, rather than using circular strokes, focus on smooth straight strokes following the metal grain as a guide. If an area is scratch free, do not polish it. Polishing removes a fine layer of metal, bringing the layer to the level of the scratch, thus causing it to disappear

 

Servicing Your Rolex

Finally, to ensure optimal performance it is important to get your Rolex serviced every 5 years from a certified Rolex dealer. Not only is the dealer trained to maintain the Rolex’s precision, but they are also excellent resources for questions about maintenance and use of the watch. They can also recommend acceptable cleaning products and tactics for the continued maintenance of the watch. Be sure to utilize this great resource to get the most out of your watch.

A watch-lover’s place of enchantment

Situated in the heart of Cape Town, Philip Zetler Jewellers is well  known among collectors of fine timepieces. Owner Philip Zetler  shares what sets his outlet apart from others.

When was your retail outlet established? The company has been in existence  for the last 80 years. It was previously  called Stanley’s Jewellers. In 1987 I purchased  it, revamped it and renamed it Philip Zetler  Jewellers. I am the sole proprietor/owner and work full-time in the store.

Where is the outlet situated? Located at 54 St George's Mall, it is  one of the oldest jewellery businesses  in Cape Town. It is in the heart of Cape Town,  near the five-star Cape Sun (Holiday Inn)  Hotel. The store is famous for its 100-year old,  square-faced Smith’s clock affixed to its  front, which contributes greatly to its unique  character. I believe it still serves as a landmark  and rendezvous point for lovers and business  people alike.

What brands do you stock? We offer pre-owned watches from the  world’s finest brands with guarantees  of authenticity so that clients have absolute  peace of mind. Among some of the premier  brands are Rolex, Cartier, Patek Philippe,  IWC, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantin,  Bulova, Breitling, Panerai, Omega and Tag  Heuer. We are also official stockists of Seiko,  Pulsar, Timex, Casio and Fossil watches.

What kind of products can a consumer expect from your store? 

Besides our wide range of pre-owned  watches, as a manufacturing jeweller,  I see myself as handily placed to fulfil the  needs of any prospective buyer. Philip Zetler  Jewellers offers an extensive stockholding of  rings, chains, earrings and antique jewellery,  among other pieces of adornment.

What sets you apart from  other retail outlets? Our extensive collection of pre-owned  wristwatches is displayed in the window.  Watch-lovers are a particular niche market and  one that I’ve been carefully cultivating for many  years. One glance into the window is certainly  set to race the pulses of such wristwatch  aficionados. Watch-lovers are always on the  look-out for new additions to our collections,  as for many of our consumers it has become an  all-consuming passion.

Do you offer any additional services? Philip Zetler Jewellers offers a selection  of services including buying and selling  of watches, fine jewellery and Kruger Rands,  as well as loose and certified diamonds and  tanzanite. We also offer a watch, clock and  jewellery repair service.

How do you see the future of retail outlets with the growth in online shopping? I believe that in our industry, many  consumers still want to touch and see  the actual goods – especially when it comes  to jewellery pieces. However, many consumers  have converted to the virtual world and  therefore I feel that nowadays websites are very  important in positioning one’s business. I also  have a website (www.philipzetlerjewellers.co.zaso that we can reach consumers outside of Cape  Town as well.
