Exceptional Service For Rolex Watches
May 11, 2022
Our experts from Tourneau | Bucherer follow a long standing watchmaking tradition to guarantee high standards of servicing of Rolex watches.
Our Process For Servicing Rolex Watches
The Tourneau | Bucherer Authorized Plaque Service Center is staffed by expertly-trained watchmakers who follow an exacting process for servicing Rolex watches. Every timepiece is guaranteed to function within original factory specifications, using only Rolex-made watch parts to maintain authenticity.
When our watchmakers embark on a servicing project, they begin the process with a careful examination of the timepiece to assess all work needing to be done. Work begins by removing the entire watch movement from the case. From here, the movement, case and bracelet each follow a unique path before reassembly at the end of the process.
A specialist will then dismantle the case and carefully examine each individual component. If a part is deemed unable to comply with Rolex requirements, a factory-made replacement is added. All components are then cleaned using an ultrasonic bath to remove all traces of impurities and enhance functionality.
The service expert re-finishes the case, bezel, caseback and bracelet according to their original design. The specialist completing this task places great care and dexterity into such a delicate operation.
The movement is lubricated, recalibrated and the watchmaker then makes any necessary adjustments to the precision of the movement according to the Rolex accuracy criteria and tolerances. This must all be completed before the movement is placed back into the case.
During this time, the case frame, bezel, case back and bracelet are re-polished or satin-finished according to their original finish.
Finally, the case is then reassembled and properly sealed before the watch is ready for the next phase, which is quality assurance testing.
A Philosophy Of Excellence
Our Rolex servicing does not end upon reassembly. Instead, each timepiece is sent for a precise testing procedure that affirms our commitment to excellence. No watch may leave our Servicing Center without passing this series of examinations.
The first test our dedicated team carries out is for timekeeping performance and power reserve. This step measures the watch’s chronometric precision once again, making any final adjustments necessary for it to meet Rolex requirements. The watch then undergoes another Rolex-specific test lasting at least 24 hours to verify the performance of the movement over time.
Once precision is ensured, watches are then tested for waterproofing. The team pressure-tests the timepiece to be sure all components are water-tight and properly sealed.
The watchmakers in the Tourneau | Bucherer Service Center follow an exacting set of procedures designed to ensure that every timepiece complies with Rolex standards. All timepieces are guaranteed to meet their functional and aesthetic specifications particular to the model.
