* all testing is performed with Rolex certified equipment
Q: How much does a Rolex repair cost?
A: You will see many offers that confuse the two issues of Rolex repair and Rolex service. The servicing of a watch is different than the repair of a watch. The reason we mention that is due to the fact that many online repairmen will quote one price such as $395 for repair which is misleading. That is the price to service a watch much like you would take a car in for service. However to repair a watch that has a problem depends on the problem itself. We offer a Rolex service for $395 which includes Cleaning, Overhauling, Polishing, Gasket replacement, Pressure and Water testing and more. However if there is a problem and a part is needed then it depends on the price of the part. That is why an initial phone conversation will allow us to estimate the repair and then confirm it once the watch is inspected.
Q: Why is Rolex watch repair so expensive?
A: There are many factors involved in Rolex repair. If the average cost of a watch is around $15,000 (estimated) and the cost of a service is around $400 then it is just 2.6% of the cost of the watch itself. Much like a luxury car it pays to service the watch. When it comes to repair costs it all depends on the parts, you can use non-Rolex parts and save money but you are putting your watch at risk. Using genuine certified Rolex parts assures that the watch will maintain it’s value and work properly. As you can see, compared to the initial cost of the watch itself, Rolex watch repair is really not that expensive.
Q: Where can I look to repair a Rolex?
A: When looking to repair a Rolex it is best to find a certified repairman. Some watch dealers provide the service however some merely sell and not service the watches. One of the values of being able to search online is the benefit of finding a highly trained repairman that specializes in repairing Rolexes. The WOSTEP program is a two-year certification program provided by the Nicolas G. Hayek Watchmaking School. Developed in partnership with the Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Education Program (WOSTEP), the program entails 3,000 hours of theoretical and hands-on instruction. The WOSTEP program is one of the most important certifications for watchmakers around the world, ask if your repairman is WOSTEP certified, ours is.
