Time means different things to different people. To Albert Einstein, time was a dimension, it was not constant and varied according to one’s position and relative velocity. To a Buddhist the linear flow of time from the past to the present and the future is an illusion, and that the liberation from Samsara is liberation from suffering, time, and space. Whatever, you believe most people will need an accurate timepiece to tell the time and aid in planning their day.
Is it Time for a Repair?
Since 1905, Rolex watches have been worn by explorers and adventurers from around the world. It was worn by one of the first mountaineers to climb Mount Everest. A special Rolex was designed to be strapped to the bathyscaphe Trieste when it traversed to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, they checked and double-checked the Rolex watch repair before entering the depths of the Trench.
Rolex is the official timekeeper for many important sporting events, including all four tennis Grand Slam events, the Open Championship and the U.S. Open for golf, and the 24 Hours of Daytona and Le Mans 24 Hours motor races.

Rolex Watches -Timepieces Without Equal
Wristwatches at one time were considered feminine and most men wore large pocket watches. Hans Wilsdorf thought overwise. He founded Wilsdorf and Davis Ltd in 1905 with his brother-in-law Alfred Davis. With careful advertising and product placement with famous explorers and the like, Rolex quickly established a reputation for quality workmanship, durability, and precision timekeeping.
After renaming the company to Rolex Watch Co. Ltd. in 1915, Rolex went on to develop innovations like the waterproof and airtight Oyster model, and a self-winding wristwatch the Oyster Perpetual.
Today they are worn by all the top movie and sports stars. They are one of the most iconic brands and are both fashionable and functional.
Taking Care of your Rolex
Each Rolex watch usually contains over 160 expertly made parts, so your watch will require very little daily care. We advise that you clean it periodically with a microfiber cloth to help preserve its luster. The case and bracelet can be washed occasionally with soapy water and a soft brush. Be careful to make sure that the winding crown is turned down properly against the case to make sure the unit is waterproof.
If you are active a Rolex is designed to withstand knocks and prolonged periods underwater. Each watch undergoes stringent testing to ensure its accuracy in real-life use. If you like swimming at the beach just rinse your watch afterward with fresh water to get rid of any salt and sand.
By far the best way to look after your Rolex is to wear it often, after all, it is too beautiful to sit in a drawer or a safe. When a watch sits for a long period of time, the lubricants inside can harden, which causes friction and damage when the parts start to move again. The perpetual self-winding mechanical movements within the Oyster models are driven by your movements when the watch is on your wrist. So, the more you wear it the healthier it is.
