Is my brand new Rolex DJ ruined?

Hi Guys

In a bit of a panic here, I wore my new YG/SS watch into the hot tub and itís turned the YG into a copper-ish colour.

Is this ruined or can it be polished back to normal?

If not, where do I go from here? Will Rolex cover it in the guarantee?

makes no sense. maybe try having it cleaned? maybe the chlorine affected the tint of the gold but i would think you can have it cleaned and it should come off. i just dont get it. plenty of people wear their Rolex's in the pool with no issue. Maybe this was over chlorinated? i would think a very light polish or cleaning will do the trick, otherwise definitely take it to Rolex and i have a feeling they will fix it up for you.

Did you purchase the watch from an Authorized Dealer (AD)?

Just a little touch up paint will do the trick!

Give it a good cleaning. Remember it is waterproof and a bit of detergent and water won't hurt it.

A rose gold Dj. You could probably sell that at a premium here in a couple years

Hmm...who would have figured that the least helpful comment in this thread so far would come from someone who put "Rollie" in his username, and misspelled it at that?

It’s not the greatest picture but you can see the difference in colour, it’s meant to be (as you all probably know the same colour gold as the hands) it’s now a lot more red.

To add... it’s not like I was in there a long time - it was around 30 minutes before I actually noticed the colour change - at first I thought (I must be drunk) but obviously not.
