If one believes that Rolex can manage such accuracy, happy dreams..
It requires a major service including parts replacement every 2 years..
It's mechanical with about 5~8 cycles per second.
A quartz movement like Seiko, Citizen or Swiss ETA is 32,760 C.P.S.
Game over!

Expensive cameras "used" to last lifetimes (My M3, M2).
Digital Leica not made for the long haul..sorry.

Price does not guarantee better in quantum results but in minor increments..
