Most experts recommend having any fine automatic serviced every five years. What does a service entail? Do not adjust the date on you Rolex or any mechanical timepiece between 9 in the evening and 3 in the morning as this could damage the date-setting mechanism in the movement. If you have a mechanical watch that you are not wearing, be sure to wind it at least once per month. This slows down the ageing process of the oils and lubrication. Or keep the timepiece on a watch winder. The crown MUST be screwed all the way down for water resistance; this is true for your Rolex or any truly water tight timepiece. If your watch does not have a screw down crown; we do not recommend swimming with it even if it is marked water resistant.
