HOW TO CLEAN YOUR ROLEX WATCH!

.

If you wear your Rolex on a daily basis, it is only natural for it to get a bit dirty over time. Although anything in regards to the internals of your watch or its functionality should only be addressed by a trained professional, there are a number of things that you can do to clean your Rolex and help ensure that your watch always looks its absolute best. Here are a few quick and easy tips for clean you ROLEX Watch.

For Rolex watches that do not have waterproof Oyster cases or screw-down winding crowns, you are going to want to keep them away from water and other cleaning solutions to ensure that your watch does not experience any moisture intrusion. For these models, simply wiping down the external surfaces of your watch with a clean microfiber cloth is the best course of action, as there is no risk of your watch sustaining incidental moisture damage.

.

However, for Rolex watches that feature the brand’s signature Oyster case, you can use soap and water to more thoroughly clean your timepiece. With that in mind, it is important that you are first certain that your watch is properly sealed. If you have not had your Rolex’s gaskets checked in more than a couple years or so, it might be worth first getting that done so that you can clean your Rolex without the potential worry of water getting inside its case.

.

Lastly, it is important to note that you can remove the strap or bracelet from your Rolex watch to make cleaning it easier. Additionally, with the bracelet fully removed from the watch, you can use other cleaning methods such as an ultrasonic cleaner to more thoroughly wash your bracelet without the potential worry of damaging your watch.

ROLEX CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS!

.

Step 1: First and foremost, make sure that your winding crown is all the way screwed down to the side of the case. The water resistance of Rolex watches is contingent on their winding crowns being fully screwed down, so before you start cleaning your Rolex, first make sure that the crown on your watch is completely in the screwed-down position.

.

Step 2: Fill a bowl with warm water and a small dab of mild, ammonia-free soap. Make sure that the water is warm and not hot, as hot water can put excess strain on the rubber gaskets that help keep out water. Additionally, it is always recommended to use a gentle, mild soap, as cleaning solutions with abrasives or strong chemicals run the risk of damaging your watch or the surface finish of its various components. 

.

Step 3: Gently scrub the outer surfaces of your watch with a soft-bristled brush. If you do not have one available, an extra soft toothbrush will also work. Just be careful not to use a hard or wire brush, as this will damage the polish and surface finish of your watch. The warm water and soap will help to remove the dirt and grime that is stuck to the case, while the brush’s bristles will allow you to scrub all of the different hard-to-reach places, such as the small gaps between the lugs and bracelet links.

.

Step 4: Once you have removed all the stuck dirt and grime and are done scrubbing your watch, the next step is to thoroughly rinse your Rolex under warm water to wash away any leftover dirt particles and soap residue. If not removed from the watch, residual soap can trap dirt particles and these particles can sometimes act as an abrasive or cause outer components such as rotating bezels to freeze up. Completely rinsing off your watch after cleaning helps to guarantee that this will not be a factor after you have cleaned it.

.

Step 5: After thoroughly rinsing off your watch, the last step is to dry it off with a clean microfiber cloth. It is important that the cloth you use is both clean and entirely free from any cleaning and polishing compounds, as these can sometimes damage the surface finish of your watch’s components. Similarly, it is also important that the cloth you use is soft (microfiber works best), as this will help guarantee that you don’t accidentally scratch your watch while you are drying it. 

.

May all the tips can help you to clean your ROLEX watch.

Have a nice day!!
