Sorry to hear.
do you still have the watch sitting around?
Depends here. Older rolex watchs had fewer revolutions so less need for special oils and less need for maintenenance
The new watches like my sub are 28 800 revs so they need special oil and need more maintenance more often
Totally depends on the movement
