    Rolex Watch Repair & Service

    Our master watchmaker is experienced in repairing a variety of brands, including vintage Rolex timepieces. Watch repairs come with a 12-month guarantee and we can repair all movements. With the ability to cut glass to fit almost any watch, our Rolex service can restore damaged classic models like the Explorer or Submariner to their former glory.

    Servicing Your Rolex

    A proper service of a Rolex will ensure that your timeless watch is polished, its movements are running smoothly once again, and any debris or dirt is removed from hard-to-reach places. Regular servicing of a Rolex helps to ensure it retains its value by keeping the movements and mechanisms in working order.

    Typically, a full Rolex watch service involves starting from the outside in, stripping and cleaning all parts and replacing any worn items. Before the restoration or service is complete, the functionality of your watch is tested to ensure that it is running as it should before we give it the seal of approval.

    Battery replacement

    Vintage Rolex watches that contain quartz movements require periodic battery replacement, typically every 2-3 years, to maintain proper timekeeping. Our expert watchmakers will open the case back, remove the old battery, inspect the movement, and install a new battery.

    Dial Restoration and Repair

    We can restore faded, damaged, or patina-rich dials on vintage Rolex watches. This may involve gentle cleaning, touch-up painting, or complete refinishing. Luminous material on dials and hands can also be restored through a process known as reluming.

    Bracelet and Strap Repair or Replacement

    We will inspect the bracelet or strap and repair as needed by replacing spring bars, pins, adjusting sizing, or refinishing surfaces. Alternatively, we can advise you about fitting your vintage Rolex with a new, period-correct bracelet or strap.

    Full Vintage Rolex Service

    In addition to the above, a full service includes a complete disassembly and ultrasonic cleaning of all components. The movement is inspected and worn parts are replaced as needed. The watch is re-assembled, lubricated, timed, and pressure tested.

    Restoration of Rolex Case

    Our case restoration services include polishing, brushing, and refinishing to restore shine and remove scratches and dings while preserving lines and edges.
