Growing up around and working in an office with a watch service center makes it easy for me to be out of touch with reality in regards to how I care for my watch. I’m always mindful of its care, constantly wash it, and if I ever needed something I was able to talk to Glenn, Watch Chest’s in-house watchmaker, and he would look at it immediately.
He would always give me props on how well I wear a watch. But what if I had not grown up around it?
So one day I asked Glenn for the number one tip — asking him to name the single thing — a Rolex owner could do to take care of their watch. No special knowledge required.
When ordering a Rolex or other luxury watch online, something that can take the unboxing completely over the top is when the bracelet is already sized for your wrist. People have different ideas of what is the perfect fit but watch sizes are pretty standard, so it is easy for an online independent watch dealer to get it pretty close for you — as long as you give them the correct information!
Ordering a Rolex online through Watch Chest is easy! Below are the 7 steps to Rolex bliss and screenshots of the checkout process if you need any extra guidance!
1. Choosing Your Watch
As you glance around the site, you will see that Rolex is organized by model. If you click on a particular model from the home page menu you will then be able to glance through everything available. If you have a clearer picture of what color dial or price range you are looking for, you can use the menu on the left to refine your search.
In the first of many in a series of addressing the most frequently asked questions heard while I worked at Watch Chest, I thought I would a write about the one heard most often: “What year is this watch?”
As a potential customer who is about to spend thousands of dollars with a company, you have every right to ask any question you want. Even after being around this industry for many years, I would still ask that question if I were buying a pre-owned Rolex or other luxury timepiece from someone. However, there is a skewed amount of emphasis that is placed upon the age of a Rolex, when an entirely different aspect should have precedence when you make your selection.
