Case Study

Rolex Barrel with Excess Oil

Here are two pictures showing the mainspring barrel, ratchet wheel, and upper and lower plates of a Rolex Submariner #16800, movement caliber 3035.

The movement was over-lubricated; this robs the movement of power, resulting in poor timekeeping, which increased the need for service.

We are no longer accepting routine service work or general watch repairs. However, we will continue taking in a limited number of projects and restorations. Please contact us for details.
