Wait... That one watch turned an entire sink worth of water that color?!?!?

I have cleaned all my 5 digit Rolex’s popped the bezels off but what do you recommend for the 6 digit ceramic bezels? I regularly rinse them off but I didn’t think you could pop those bezels off.

My thing is how do you get in under the bracelet or bezel without taking it apart. I usually give it a little rinse every once in a while, but that crap looks impacted.

I wear my 18078 almost every day in a pool to swim. The chorine and the motion in the water gets in everywhere. Watch is squeaky clean inside and out !

I pop those off with a knife as well. Thing is, I use a new washer gasket (which secures the bezel) every time, you don't have the bezel press and new washers at home so just leave it on there

this is what I use, much safer to use than normal hand soap, it contains a lot less chemicals, if its good enough for a baby, its good enough for my Rolex

I will never understand.. why spend the money on a watch just to keep it in disgusting condition? It's like driving around in a filthy Rolls Royce with a bunch of fast food bags and trash on the seats and dashboard.

My 2 take a bath with a makeup brush. They are soft enough not to cause damage and cover almost all areas.

I recall reading that dirt and debris that accumulated within a bracelet can act like a abrasive and accelerate link wear especially on a jubilee.

I find it quite relaxing giving the oul Rolex a bath, rinse after with bottled water and then blow dry with a lens blower

Just nasty Bas! I would have reworked that head on the DJ and put it back on that nasty A$$ bracelet and put a note in the box that your not allowed to contaminate Rolex's equipment with that filth and to clean it off before sending it in next time!

How do you clean under the bezel of a modern sub? Cermaic

Good Lord...that Datejust is disgusting. I think some people really don't know you can wash/rinse your watches. Or just wipe them down so the 'wrist cheese' doesn't accumulate. Wow.

I do it the same way, just taking it off. But for everyone else I recommend just regularly cleaning the watch, can't take the bezel off.

Hahaha - yep. I saw a AP with damaged dial I think on Instagram and the guy is trying to pass it on as Patina. LOL

All dealers try to sell shit like that as somewhat patina crap.
