Treatment Method for Water in Rolex Day-date Watches

Rolex is well-received by everyone for its sturdy and durable features. In the field of mass-produced mechanical watches, it has always been synonymous with precision. The classic Rolex Datejust watch is made of classic 18K gold with stainless steel, and it features the classic triangle pit design and magnifying glass calendar display window design, and these designs are Rolex's typical characteristics. The watch is also equipped with a cal3136 self-winding movement, which is sturdy and durable too. But what should you do if your Rolex Day-date watch gets wet?

The reason why the Rolex Day-date watch gets into the water is not because the watch is worn for too long and the waterproof bezel of the watch is aging. Most of the people take a bath, sauna, rain, etc. with the watch on. Everyone thinks that for such an expensive watch, it is waterproof, but why can they still enter water?

Here, everyone should be clear that when the watch is waterproof, it does not mean that it can be waterproof all the time, because the watch itself is not a sealed case. According to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, under hot water conditions, some components of the watch will expand to varying degrees, resulting in an increase in the gap between the case and the dial, which will cause the watch to enter water vapor, and it will affect the normal use of the Rolex Day-date watch.

When there is sudden temperature changes such as sudden ice water stimulation, the air in the watch is prone to condensation and fogging. At the same time, the waterproof rubber bezel of the watch is also prone to accelerated aging under the action of thermal expansion and contraction, which affects the waterproof performance of the watch.

What should you do if the Rolex Day-date replica gets water?

After the watch is soaked in water, you can wrap the watch tightly with several layers of toilet paper or a moisture-absorbing flannel, place it about 15 cm away from the 40-watt light bulb, and bake it for about 30 minutes. Do not bake the mirror of the watch directly near the fire, so as not to cause the mirror to be deformed by heat.

However, no matter how timely and effective the measures are, there will be damage to your Rolex watch. Therefore, it is recommended that you still take good care of your watch, and do not wear it to take a bath, sauna, or go swimming.
