Thanks for this resource! I've written a bunch of hubs about Rolex watches, but haven't researched how to get one fixed or cleaned yet. I have asked several jewelers what they would charge to clean and adjust my Rolex watch and it is quite pricey because they don't do it themselves and have to send them out. Now I know I can cut out the middleman! Thanks again:)
