In any given year, 38 million Americans will buy fine jewelry or watches. Rolex, which produces over 2,000 watches per day, is one of the most luxurious watch manufacturers in the world. With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that you should know how to properly care for your Rolex watch. Here are just a few procare tips to keep in mind to keep your Rolex in top shape.

Washing and Cleaning

Rolex watches are beautiful and the best way to keep them looking beautiful is to wash and clean them. An occasional wash with a cloth will preserve the luster of your Rolex, but you can also use soapy water and a soft brush to wash the case and metal bracelet. This will ensure your Rolex watch is always in perfect condition.


For Rolex owners who wear their watch on a daily basis, manually winding it is not necessary. If, on the other hand, you only wear your Rolex watch on occasion, it is recommended that you manually wind the watch before putting it on to set the time.

Sealing The Crown

While all Rolex watches are waterproof to depths of at least 100 meters, the Oyster case of the watch needs to be sealed properly to maintain the waterproofness. It is especially important to screw down the crown tightly after you reset the time/date or wind the watch manually. Properly screwing down the crown of your Rolex watch will create a seal similar to a submarine and will keep water or dust from getting inside.

About 25% of watch buyers say they mainly wear a watch to make a fashion statement, but regardless of the reason for your watch purchase, keeping it in top shape will ensure that it lasts for years and years to come.
