    My new Rolex squeaks!

    I have been wearing my new DeepSea for the past week and I am loving it. I have managed to finally take off most of the protective stickers off finally, I said most!

    Being my first Rolex I am quite amused that whenever I shake my wrist a little the bracelet squeaks, not sure if this is normal but I thought I would see if this is abnormal?

    It doesn't bother me at all, it is quite comforting as whenever I hear that squeak I have to have a little look at my new watch!

    I've had new bracelets do that before. It really annoys me, but technically there is nothing wrong with the watch/bracelet.

    Enjoy the squek while it lasts, it`ll be gone soon enough. All my new Rolexes did the same thing in the beginning.

    "Squeek is goood", ~ !
    It's an indication of the "close tolerances" ROLEX uses !

    Hehe, my Invicta pro diver sqeaked too.... Guess it's the same quality as a Rolex then

    Just kidding...
    It will go away by itself, as soon as there is some "gunk" between the parts!

    I didn't know it was such a common thing, I hope mine lasts a little longer as I find it comforting knowing I have a new Rolex on my wrist!

    All my new rolexes have squeaked. Rinse it under water for a while or take a shower with it and it'll go away.

    I had a bracelet squeak, small hit of silicone spray, problem solved.
    Better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done...
