Overhaul and Detailing Project
Rolex Stainless Steel Date Just: You can never go wrong wearing this watch.
For over a century, Rolex watches have accompanied explorers and achievers around the world, from the top of the highest mountains to the deepest reaches of the ocean, from Hollywood to all the Sports Arenas, Rolex presence is always noticed. A Rolex watch is crafted from the finest metals and the highest craftsmanship in the industry.
It is always a great opportunity for our Master Watchmakers to work in a timepiece like this one, with a severe impact that had shattered the crystal and left glass debris all over the dial and inside the movement.
It is very common that owners of interesting timepieces call us to find out about the process and how long will it take to get their watch back. Money is an important issue but quality, warranty, and time of completion are always topics of our conversation. It is always a pleasure to go over the repair with our clients that very soon become part of the great Gray and Sons family. We assured that the watch was in good hands and that we were going to follow manufacturers’ protocols to keep this watch 100% original and protect its present and future value. After the service and repair were done, we can guarantee that the damage sustained will not affect the accuracy and value of the watch.
Our Swiss-trained watchmakers took the job with great passion and interest. This movement in special had some damage due to an impact and lots of pieces of glass all over the movement and dial that if not repaired right away will destroy the movement and will make the repair very expensive to do. As you will see in the pictures, there are pieces of glass all over. Please take a look at the pictures before and after our job was completed.
What makes Gray & Sons different?
We look at each watch as a work of art and we involve 6 specialists in the whole process to repair, restore, detail, and bring it back to the original manufacturer’s specifications.
The work begins, the movement is removed. One of our master watchmakers disassembles the movement to the barest parts. To clean the parts we use a multi-stage process to remove dirt and old dried lubricants to bring this great movement back to its best performance.
No shortcuts are used, we, at Gray & Sons, only do this the old fashioned way of the antique watchmakers when they designed these intricate movements over one hundred years ago. The movement is put together again to start working on the regulation, timekeeping accuracy, power reserve, and synchronization of all the parts involved for this magnificent movement to keep time.
Then the watch will be re-cased, and for the final checks, two specialists will test the power reserve of the movement manually, then check the power reserve using mechanical wheels for timekeeping and winding, finally pressure testing machines to check for leaks on the seals and gaskets.
The watch will almost be ready to be shipped back and as a final stage, we will have another associate check everything all over again with new eyes and have these final tests done again before we ship it back to the owner.
