I am a little late getting on the topic but.. MAGS, if you send your Rolex through a reputable Rolex dealer back to the factory for tune up or repair you shouldn't have any problems. I have a Rolex Submariner, blue face, stainless and gold band. Several years ago the self winding spring broke and it kept losing time. After about a three month wait time the watch came back from the factory looking brand new. Since I only had the one watch and am a cheap bastard when it comes to owning watches I just didn't know what time it was for three months.
