  • Any places to go besides Rolex Centre?

    Went to Rolex Center today and wanted to change my crystal, but they declined because my casing has a crack.

    Can anyone recommend me elsewhere to go?

          1. Would suggest you go to RSC. Peace of mind.

          2. As for independent guys, I went to 2. One quoted SGD200 for service and polish. Another quoted SGD120.

          Hope this helps.

            thanks for the info & advice... a visit to RSC would be a min damage of $400 to $500.... am considering the alternatives first....

            are the independent 'service centres' able to order parts from rolex? i think i rem reading that only authorized technicians are able to indent parts from rolex... if this is the case wouldn't the 'service centres' have difficulties getting replacement parts?

            i guess this is the only issue holding me back from going for the cheaper alternatives

                Servicing

                I would recommend to ask the technician of any watch shops other than RSC to write down the braclet number and also stretch out and arch the braclet as a check before leaving the shop as I've heard stories of shops that changed the braclet of customers from a firm to a saggy one.
                Though I'm not sure how to make sure the shop don't change any movement inside.

                  assuming someone buys a rollie from here as the seller says 'BNIB' and verfication and cost to be beared by buyer at RSC. whats the procedure than ? buyer and seller goes to RSC and seller pays $75 and what do the ppl at RSC do to verify its authentication? and is there any documents given to say its genuine so dat the buyer can depart his money to the seller after the verification? and how long does this verification process last ?
                  thanks in advance to the gurus here for answering.

                    Not a guru, but here's what I understand to be the practice

                    When a watch is presented to RSC, they open up and check through. They will verbally tell you watch is ok, and then go on to suggest what you need to do to the watch to get it in tip top condition - waterproof etc.
                    If you want documentation from them - which is basically a slip with the RSC letterhead that says "servicing charges - $75", you pay $75 for it. The paper will not say "watch authenticated, 100% rolex" but the issuing of the slip to you is taken to mean that watch is authentic and ok. They will not give you documentation for a watch which is fake. They may however, not give you that slip if an authentic Rolex watch contains critical parts or too many parts which are non-rolex - for instance if an important part of the movement contains foreign parts - making it a "franken" watch.

                    It's ok to tell the counter people that you are getting the watch checked because you are considering buying it.
