junior can answer oso rite.....

a watch is to be worn.....and to wear will definitely get scratches.....so i suggest you to bear with it.....even if u were to polish it now, you will get a few scratches in no time......

the only way not to have scratches is not to wear.......

on the other hand, you can also purchase cape cod polishing cloth from home-fix...about 8 dollars to do simple polishing....it can get rid of minor swirls ....must be careful though, if not u end up with more scratches.....bigger scratches better leave it till the 5 yr service...

when it comes to service, i rather go back to rolex singapore......trained technician with factory parts support......1 yr international warranty also....

i read somewhere that cape cod polishing cloth will polish SS until morror shine, so if got brushed finish better not use unless u want to convert brushed surface until mirror shine

Rolex centre quite exp ard $300 plus for a complete overhaul and refubishing of case and bracelet....so i was thinking of getting it serviced outside..i was quoted ard $150/- by a pre-owned dealer in chinatown...

Anyone have better lobang for reasonable quality and fair pricing for servicing of rolex watches?

For scratches on the glass you can go to Rolex Center (At Orchard) and say that there are a few scratches and ask the service stuff nicely if she could ask the technician to buff the glass for you. Usually they will do it FOC if you really ask them nicely. that is what I did.

I keep saying nicely because the Uncle behind me storm into the Center and started question the lady and asking how come it's not scratch proof! I can see the lady face change but still explain the Uncle why it's not scratch proof BUT told him will charge for buffing. LOL!

I would suggest you go back to an official or authorized Rolex service center for servicing your watch. Otherwise you can you could end up like what Killtime has said.

I don't think it can be polished at all, it's the next hardest thing to diamond

Hello all,

Anyone knows the price for a brand new Explorer 1? My bro jus visited a pre-owned shop and he was quoted ard $5000 for a 'F' series 114720.

Though i do not knw the exact price of a brand new ones, i got a feeling that the price he quoted- $5000 was quite close to a brand new piece....i mean too exp liao for a second hand explorer 1....

Any comments or anyone jus got one from AD or any pre-owned store can advise/ air their comments?

Thanks to all and have a great weekend!

New one will cost ard $5.4~5.5k but no stocks. I think the shop got another 'Y' series piece at $4.2k.

Quite a Rip Off. Can get a Y or F series at about 3.8k - $4.2k quite easily, unless the exp1 wave is hitting the watch market.
