An AMAZING look at restoring an old Rolex.

Alright, further examination of the watch confirms the above – there’s really nothing wrong with the exterior of the watch that a good cleaning and polishing won’t fix. There’s no rust or major physical trauma. And it looks like the watch hasn’t been polished much before, which is a good thing – some watches of this age have been over polished. So with the cursory inspection complete, it’s now time to begin disassembling the watch for cleaning and further inspection. The first order of business is to remove the bracelet and check between the lugs.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
