Question about Rolex Datejust SS

1989 Rolex Datejust

I had my watch serviced for the first time last year by EMW's Eric Martin. It only needed the winding crown replaced when I sent it in but he said it needed a inversor wheel as it was worn and could not be warranteed without it. It has worked perfectly until today when it just stopped running. Second hand won't move no matter how much it is wound. I have not yet contacted EMW but was curious if there was a part called a inversor wheel.

I am not positive as to what an Inversor wheel is, I have not heard it mentioned in my 15 years in the watch bushiness. But watchmakers may have there own names for different parts.

Just take it back to them if it is under warranty.

If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal for it to stop or slow down? Vintage SS mens datejust, oyster perpetual.


mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

Can you please tell me how to set my Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust? Day light savings toime ends this evening and the watch needs to be set back 1 hour.


Unscrew the crown and then pull the crown out to the second click and turn. When done push the crown back in and screw the crown back down.

It is very important to screw the crown back down. If this is not done the watch is NOT water resistant.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone have a manual for a datejust rolex


No, there isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Datejust is very simple:
1) when you unscrew the crown, it is in winding position,
2) when you pull out the crown to the first click, it is in date setting position,
3) when you pull the crown further out to the second click, it is in time setting position.
To find the daytime or night time on the watch: pull out crown to the second click and advance watch hands forward till you pass the 12 mark on dial. If the date changes as you pass it - it is the night time (midnight). If the date do not change as you pass it - it is the daytime (noon).
After all settings being done, allways screw the crown back down as it protects the watch from water and moisture.
Never use watch in sauna- it's not designed for that.
Do not forget to rate, please.

Self winding feature does not work


There is nothing you can do yourself. Simply return your watch to EMW and demand to sort the winding problem once and for all.
It may take some time, but better to be patient as quick watch repairs usually are very short living.
By the way: I'd ask for detailed receipt what for $1800 was spent. This amount of money can be charged only in case if there were brand new Rolex replacement parts necessary. For just refurbishing the watch it is way too much.

Do not forget to rent, please.

How do I adjust my time


hi friend,
i think your rolex watch must be a automatic one. this kind of watch, you don't need to put battery, after in full power, i can last 24-48 hours. if you wear it, it will not stop, but if you don't wear it for long time, it will stop automatic. to adjust the time, you just need to wind the crown counterclockwise, and then pull out the crown, and then you will hear the sound of "click" and then find the right position, and then wind the crown to change the date. please note that the date have to change from small number to big number. after adjust it, you have to screw down the crown to a good water proof capability.
