The Importance of Regular Maintenance for Your Rolex or Omega Watch

Your luxury Rolex or Omega timepiece is more than just a watch. It’s an heirloom, a lifestyle, and an investment that can increase in value by over 69% every 10 years. However, that’s only if you maintain its precision and aesthetic with regular professional watch repair servicing. 

While luxury watches are durable and built to last, they still undergo everyday wear and tear. Just like you wouldn’t buy a luxury car and then forget about regular maintenance and oil changes, high-end watch maintenance is crucial if you want your timepiece to exuberate quality, style, value, and precision for years to come. 

Keep reading to learn about the benefits of professional watch repair, how often you should get your watch services, and why you should avoid DIY repairs. 

Advantages of Regular Watch Servicing

Regular watch servicing for your luxury Rolex or Omega timepiece is not just a necessary cost but offers some distinct advantages to you, the owner.

Addresses Normal Wear and Tear

Normal wear and tear is bound to happen and includes everything from scratches and dings to tarnishing and wearing down interior components like gears, lubrication, and more. Regular Omega or Rolex maintenance addresses these issues to restore the aesthetic and functionality of your watch. 

Maintains Precision 

While luxury watches are very accurate with a deviation of as little as -2/+2 seconds per day, they have over 100 moving parts to ensure this accuracy. Over time, the components and lubrication can wear down and decrease the timekeeping precision. Regular professional watch repair can relubricate and repair or replace all parts to keep it running smoothly and effectively for years. 

Retains Value 

While the value of your watch can increase over time, that’s only the case if it’s kept in excellent condition.  Regular watch servicing helps to maintain all aspects of the watch that play a role in its value including the aesthetic, precision, and authenticity. The end result is a timepiece that’s more likely to gain in value. 

Restores Appearance

Luxury watches are gorgeous and part of your luxury lifestyle, but scratches, tarnishing, and other imperfections caused by daily use can impact the appearance. High-end watch maintenance can restore the aesthetic of the watch bracelet, bezel, case, crystal, and more to make it look brand new once again.

Prevents Further Damage

Normal wear and tear is typically not a problem for the longevity and value of your watch, but minor damage and poor lubrication that occurs with normal aging can damage other parts over time. This means more expensive repairs and more damage to your luxurious Rolex or Omega watch. 

How Often Should You Have Your Watch Serviced?

Just because you don’t notice any damage, doesn’t mean that some of the parts, lubricants, and components don’t need to be replaced, cleaned, or repaired. To ensure your watch maintains value, appearance, precision, and style, we recommend seeking professional Rolex or Omega watch care every 5 years. 

However, if your watch accrues damage before 5 years or you’ve waited much longer between high-end watch maintenance visits, that’s okay! Just remember that the sooner you get regular watch servicing, the sooner you can have your restored watch back on your wrist. Plus, since minor damage can contribute to worse damage, it will be cheaper to fix now than it might be in the future. 

Why Should You Use Professional Watch Repair Services?

It might be tempting to polish or repair your watch yourself, but professional watch repair requires sophisticated equipment, delicate disassembly, meticulous reassembly, and high-tech ultrasonic cleaning. If something goes wrong with your DIY repairs, it could cost you significantly more. 

With a professional, you know you get the best service and care for your timepiece that will maintain precision, restore appearance, retain value, and keep it running smoothly and beautifully for years to come.
