A Rolex watch is certainly not the type of watch that you’d throw away if it were to stop functioning properly. These high-end watches, in fact, can last a lifetime or more if taken care of properly. If your Rolex watch is damaged you can bring it to a watch repair shop to have it repaired. The cost to repair a Rolex watch depends on repairs needed – if damaged parts need to be replaced the price will go up.
The cost to repair a Rolex can range from $100 to over $1,500 depending on the repairs needed, cost of replacement parts, how old the watch is, and other factors.
Servicing your Rolex regularly will keep it running smoothly and working properly for decades to come. It’s recommended to service your Rolex every 5 years with an overhaul. An overhaul is the disassembly, cleaning, lubrication, and timing calibration of the 100+ parts that comprise your watch’s movement.
Average Costs of a Rolex Overhaul
A complete Rolex overhaul (the recommended servicing of your watch) can cost between $400 and $800. The price will largely vary by location but many service shops will offer a mail-in option – allowing you to find the best value anywhere you’re at. Mail-in service does come with its own risks but packages are can be insured to avoid loss of assets.
Primarily, you’ll want to ensure the Rolex service shop has experience with Rolex watches and offers full-service work. If the price is very low, make sure they’re offering a full overhaul. Not a cheap, basic cleaning that doesn’t provide the service your watch needs to stay functioning properly. Most service shops will also offer a warranty on the repairs or overhaul – usually a 5-year warranty to coincide with the recommended service period.
