How can I look after my Rolex?
You can help preserve its lustre by cleaning it occasionally with a microfiber cloth. You can also wash the case and bracelet (except leather straps) from time to time using soapy water and a soft brush. After wearing your watch in the sea, it is important to rinse it with fresh water to remove any salt and sand deposits. Before cleaning your watch, always ensure that the winding crown is screwed down properly against the case to guarantee waterproofness.
Do I have to wind my Rolex?
There is no need to wind a Rolex if it is worn daily. As you move your wrist throughout your day, the Perpetual rotor transfers energy to the watch, providing a constant and stable power source. When you take it off and set it aside it can retain its charge for up to 70 hours, depending on the model. To get it going, simply wind the movement manually by unscrewing the crown to the winding position and turning it clockwise about 20 times. Please remember to screw the crown back down properly against the case in order to guarantee waterproofness.
Do Rolex watches have batteries?
Rolex watches are powered by a Perpetual rotor inside the watch that gently swings as you move your wrist, transferring energy to the mainspring of the watch. If you take your watch off and set it aside it will retain its charge for about two days, depending on the model. To get it going, you simply have to wind the movement manually for it to run normally again.
Are all Rolex watches waterproof?
All Rolex wristwatches are waterproof to depths of at least 100 metres for Oyster Perpetual models, and 50 metres for Cellini models. Some Oyster watches can withstand depths of 1,220 or even 3,900 metres. To maintain your watch's waterproofness, the winding crown has to be screwed down tightly to create a hermetic seal. When you reset the time, the date or other functions or wind the watch manually, it is extremely important to ensure that you have screwed down the winding crown until it cannot turn any further. After wearing your watch in the sea, it is important to rinse it with fresh water to remove any salt and sand deposits.
How do I set the time on a Rolex?
