3 Crucial Tips to Care for Your Rolex



We all know that a Rolex isn’t just any old watch. Any timepiece that boasts this brand’s name carries renowned prestige and craftsmanship, old and new models alike. Thus, a Rolex should not be treated like any old watch. Once you invest in a luxury timepiece, you should be continually investing time into cleaning and maintaining your Rolex.


Here are the best ways to care for your Rolex:

1-Washing Your Rolex

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wearing your Rolex on a daily basis (after all, who wouldn’t want to?). But even though a Rolex is composed of fine and durable materials, it can still dull and get dirty over time. To keep your watch looking and functioning flawlessly, you should wash your Rolex every few months.


Obviously, it’s best to avoid water contact unless you’re cleaning the watch or wearing a water-resistant model (like a Rolex Oyster, for example). Here are some steps to take before you begin washing your Rolex:


  • Wash your hands to remove excess oil and dirt.
  • Ensure that the winding crown is completely and tightly screwed into the case to prevent water from entering the interior of the case.


Steps to wash your Rolex:

  • Using lukewarm water, gently rinse off any loose particles.
  • Apply ammonia free soap to your hands and gently wash the watch exterior.
  • Use a small and gentle tool like a toothbrush to clean into crevices, especially between the bracket links.
  • After you’re done scrubbing, submerge the watch in lukewarm water in short intervals to rinse away the remaining soap and dirt.
  • Gently pat the watch dry with a clean, soft cloth.



  • If you see condensation or water entering under the crystal, you should take it in for repairs immediately.


Get your Rolex Serviced

In order to keep your Rolex in prime condition, it should be professionally serviced every 5 years. Certified Rolex dealers are trained to keep the movements precise and can advise you on how to keep your Rolex in the best working condition. If your Rolex needs to be polished, to not attempt to do it yourself. To fix the damage, it should be taken to a certified repair center.



Properly Wind Your Watch

To wind your watch properly, you should place it on a flat, soft surface (not while you wear it). Begin winding by unscrewing the crown to position 2 and wind it about 35 times (give or take). Because Rolex watches are built to prevent over-winding, you can be generous with your winding motions. After the winding is complete, screw the crown back into its original position. If the movement doesn’t begin right away, you can very gently rock the watch to start it.


If you have self-winding or perpetual movement watch, it will wind itself as you wear it. Wearing it often will keep up the functioning of the movements and mechanism over time.

A Rolex deserves the utmost care in order to keep it working well for a lifetime. Following these tips can keep your Rolex in prime condition.

4 Unbelievable Things You Didn’t Know about Rolex



Whether you’re a watch enthusiast or you’re just a curious watch wearer, here’s a few interesting facts about Rolex:


Rolex started in London, not Switzerland.


Although Rolex is world renowned for Swiss made timepieces, it was actually founded in London by a German and a Brit. And they didn’t make watches at first —they only assembled them. In 1905, the 24-year-old Bavarian immigrant Hans Wilsdorf and his English brother in law Alfred Davis started their company in London. They imported Swiss movements, placed them in English watch bodies, and then they would them sell them to jewellers who put their own logos on the face. Three years later, they decided to make their own watches. Because of crippling taxes from WW1, it only made sense to leave Britain and move their headquarters to Geneva where the world’s most skilled watchmakers were.


The word “Rolex” was made up by Wilsdorf.


Some assume that it came from the French phrase horlogerie exquise, and others say that “Rolex” sounds like watch being wound. But apparently, Wilsdorf admitted that he just wanted something that looked good on a watch face, was short, and was easy to pronounce in just about any language.


Rolex uses the most expensive steel in the world: 904L


So what makes a Rolex worth every penny? Part of it is the use of 904L steel instead of the usual (and wimpy, by comparison) 316L. Since 2004, Rolex upgraded all of their equipment to use this difficult to machine metal. Now, their watches are more resistant to corrosion and hold polish much better than any other steel watches.


It takes one year to make a single Rolex watch.


Every single Rolex is hand assembled and individually tested. Each one has miniscule parts and rigorous tests to pass and meet the company’s high quality standards. But believe it or not, they still manage to whip out around one million watches a year.

Build Your Watch Collection: Rolex Milgauss “Z-Blue”

When you think of a Rolex, impressive yet monochromatic styled watches will come to mind. But within the past several years, this watch brand has gotten a little more daring with their designs. Just a couple of weeks ago, we told you about the Rolex Hulk Submariner — a watch that is attractively and surprisingly modern for a Rolex. This time, we’re writing about a timepiece that’s similarly bold, yet even more stunning.


“Z Blue” Milgauss

Rolex, known for it’s classic, conservative style, has created yet another quirky touch to one of its most desired timepieces. Milgauss (meaning 1000 Gauss in French), was a line of watches first introduced in 1956 as the perfect anti magnetic watch.  Nicknamed “Z Blue,” this Milgauss has been given a new metallic blue watch face that is complemented by the line’s unique green-tinted sapphire crystal.



Everything about the Milgauss has the Rolex signature touch. Crafted with the watchmaker’s iconic 904L steel, this timepiece looks incredible and is extremely durable. Everything from the bracelet to the screw-down crown ensure that its beauty and resistance to wear will last a lifetime. And with its in-house movements, scratch-resistant sapphire, and magnetic shield, we expected nothing less from a classic Rolex.



Although it’s stunning, the blue Milgauss is not always a favorite at first glance. The unusual pairing of green, blue, and orange on the dial could feel random. But when you really look into the orange minute rim and hand, the luminescent green lining, and the subtle changes of blue in the watch face, you’ll be won over quickly. Somehow, the large Oyster face holds it all together perfectly. And as if a Rolex wasn’t impressive enough, the Z-Blue offers an entirely separate and attractive appeal from others in the same collection. It’s unique, modern, and bright.

What are In-House Movements?


If you’ve done any kind of research on luxury watches, you may have noticed the term “in-house movements” found in the descriptions.


But what are in-house movements? Are they a big deal?


To add a little clarity on what it means, we’ve laid out everything you need to know about it:


What “In-House” is supposed to mean:

Brands that claim to have in-house movements supposedly manufacture and assemble crucial pieces of their watches all under a single roof. Some benefits of in-house movements include:


  • Better looking watches that retain monetary value
  • Very intricate and complicated functions.
  • More exclusive than mass-produced counterparts,
  • Desired among serious watch collectors.


Still, many watch enthusiasts debate on the true definition of this term. After all, watches can contain anywhere from 100 to 1,000 intricate parts. So having the capability to produce all parts including the hair springs, synthetic rubies, and screws is quite rare. In fact, many companies that truly produce in-house movements still purchase highly specialized parts from from suppliers. But in the world of modern watchmaking, many watch enthusiasts feel that creating a 100% in-house watch is really not necessary.


For example, some of of the best watches on the market are part of the ETA Swatch Family Group. Brands that order their parts from ETA could technically claim “in-house” production because that’s exactly how they were made. Furthermore, many watch brands who work with ETA often completely alter the movements to create totally unique functions anyway. Still, there are brands are there who truly create “in-house movement,” making their watch more exclusive and unique by name.


True “In-House” Watchmakers:


If you’re looking for a watch made by a brand with true “in-house movements,” take a look at this list:




Though their watches are not extremely complicated, every Rolex is very well-made and 100% “in-house” manufactured. The process that goes into crafting a Rolex is pretty mindblowing.


Audemars Piguet


Known for their highly complicated watchmaking techniques, it’s not surprising that AP produces everything “in-house.”


Patek Philippe


Because Patek Philippe is the oldest family-owned watch brand in the world, independence is key in their timepiece production.




This brand is another independently owned Swiss watch company, and their proud of their innovative complications — all crafted under one roof.

Build Your Watch Collection: Rolex “Hulk” Submariner


When the subject of luxury watches comes up, Rolex always comes to mind. Of course, their timepieces are renowned for their durability and high-end materials. And their sleek, classic, and dashing style makes these watches extremely desirable.

But there’s something about this Rolex that’s just a little different.


It has all the materials and the same style as any Rolex should. Yet there’s something distinctly modern and unique about the Hulk Submariner.



What makes this watch special is the type of steel they use. In 2003, Rolex decided to switch from traditional stainless steel to to 904L steel. It looks better, lasts longer, and is more resistant to steel and corrosion. And the unique green bezel is what makes the Hulk Submariner more modern than the traditional steel watch. And it’s made out of a distinctly different material: Cerachrom. Unlike an aluminum inlay, Cerachrom is an extremely hard ceramic material that protects the color, even after years of wear and tear. And as a state-of-the-art diving watch, it functions underwater flawlessly.


What we love about this timepiece is how attractive the design is. As if a Rolex didn’t already catch everyone’s eye, the Hulk Submariner’s green face and bezel set it apart from others in the collection. Gorgeous white hour markers match the geometric hands, which ties everything together perfectly.  And the face is 40 mm — simply the perfect size for any man’s wrist. Plus, it’s made for diving, yet it’s dressy enough to wear with your favorite suit or tux. And with a unidirectional bezel, handsome steel bracelet, and large date display, it has everything you could want in a Rolex.

5 Tips for Buying the Perfect Watch



photo from

Let’s face it: every true gentleman needs a luxury watch to complete his wardrobe.

And to get exactly what you want, you need to know how to choose the perfect timepiece. To make the choice a little easier for you, here are a few tips from the Timepiece Perfection Guide to help you find the watch that completes and complements your look:


When you know what you like in a watch, it’s much easier to narrow down your selection. There are a variety of watches out there, so part of knowing what you like is figuring out what suits your style. Are you the suit and tie kind of guy needing a watch to match? Maybe you need something formal, like a Rolex. Or do you need a timepiece for daily wear? Try going with a IMG_0100more casual design, like a leather Blancpain. Think about the other details, like the type and color of dials you prefer, the date or moon phase display on the aperture, or even the mechanisms powering your watch in the inside.


Do your research on the different brands, prices, and quality of watches that you’re interested in. A timepiece is an important purchase because of the role it plays in how you present yourself.  Set reasonable price points, and look at options that give you the quality you’re looking for. Always look at the materials that make up the metals (gold, silver, steel, etc.) in the case cover and the band so that you get exactly what you want for what you pay.



When it comes to purchasing an analogue watch, there’s a variety of different cases and faces to choose from. Narrow down your choice by deciding on the shape you want. Do you want a case that’s round and circular, or a watch with a square or rectangular face? Once you choose the shape, look through the different sizes of cases. You can choose a big, bold face, or go with a smaller, sleeker case design. Also consider the appliqué (numerals) of the face and whether or not you need an aperture display. Either way, it’s important to find the face that suits you perfectly.



Most high quality, analogue timepiece bands are made from genuine leather or the same metal that surrounds the case. Consider which has the feel or fit that is most comfortable for you. If you are looking for a watch that’s for daily wear, choose the band that matches your wardrobe so that you can wear it on any occasion. And here’s a little note: silver bands tend to go better with black and grey suits and are worn for night life, while leather banded watches are generally worn with casual attire during the day.


Don’t buy something that you think looks just okay – keep searching until you find the exact timepiece you want. If you are drawn to a particular watch and you know it’s something that you’ll wear, don’t be afraid to go for it. After all, you’re investing in something that you should enjoy wearing for a lifetime. Buy what you love, and don’t settle for anything less.

Do your research on the watches that catch your eye. Set a budget, and make sure that you choose a timepiece that complements your personality and wardrobe. It might be a good idea to get the opinion of others as well, but just remember: pick that watch that represents you and your style, and buy exactly what you want.
