Question about Rolex Explorer II 16570 Wrist Watch

3 Answers

Can the independent 12 hour hand be set and if so how?

After my cousin passed away, we found a Rolex Explorer II among his things. But we did not find the instruction manual. I now have it and do not know how the 4th hands works, and if it can be set to different times such as to time in another time zone.

Hi Bookit42,



General question related to the Rolex watch can help you to solve this problem.



Q: How to set time?
A: To set time, you need to turn button in anti-clockwise direction if you have a screw-in lock watch. Gentally pull the button out a little bit. The best way is to use thumb and index finger and use the finger knuckle as a lever in order to pull the button out with as little force as possible. You can feel a little "click". Now you can set time by turning it anti-clockwise. This would turn the minute-hour hands forward until you set the right time. When time is set, push the button back and turn the button clockwise for a few rounds.

Q: What is meant by sweeping second hand, and which watches have it?

A: A sweeping second hand simply means that the second hand sweeps smoothly instead of ticking once every second. Basically, it is just a bunch of very small, rapid, tiny ticks combined that makes it look like it is sweeping smoothly. All automatic watches have a sweeping second hand, and all battery-run (quartz) and chronograph watches have a ticking second hand.

Q: Why does my automatic replica stop ticking and losing time?
A: When you first receive your automatic replica, you need to wind it for 3 minutes straight before wearing it. If you wear it everyday, it will continue to wind itself on your wrist when you move around and walk. If you stop wearing it for more than approximately 2 days, the watch will need to be reset, but will then automatically wind itself once you start wearing it again. The disadvantage to this is pretty clear.
Your watch doesn't keep time if you don't wear it constantly. The advantages are that you don't ever have to replace a battery, the watch keeps great time when it's running, and most of all, this type of movement is exactly what the originals use! If your Automatic is losing or gaining time in a 24 hour period the watch needs to be adjusted. All of our automatics have an adjustment screw on the movement just like the originals. Any local jeweller can service these watches.


Q: How do I set time?

A: To set time, you need to turn button in anti-clockwise direction if you have a screw-in lock watch. You need to softly pull the button out a little bit. The best way to do this is to use first and second finger and use finger knuckle as a lever in order to pull the button out with as little force as possible. You can feel a little "click"! Now you can set the time by turning it anti-clockwise. This would turn the minute-hour hands forward until you set the right time. When time is set, push the button back and turning the button clockwise for a few rounds.

Q: I have a watch with a date, how do I change the date?

A: To change date and time you need to do the following. If you have a screw-in button like Rolex, you need to turn the button anti-clockwise for a few rounds until the button is loose. Then you need to pull the button out softly by using your thumb nail and first finger nail, softly and without force. You should feel a "click" here. There are two steps when you pull the button out. The first step is for setting the date (and Day if you have a Rolex Day-Date). The second step is for setting the local. You can only set Date forward by turning button in one direction. When you are done with setting date and time, push back the button and wind it clockwise for a few times. No need to lock it.

Your best bet is to take it to a jeweler who sells rolex's and have him either copy a manual or get you a replacement. it's an expensive watch and the jeweler will check the watch out to make sure all the hands,parts are in good functioning order.....p-lease rate this.....thanks

My red hour hand doesn't stay the same time difference . Sometimes it's two hours behind BST and sometimes six!


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your watch is showing a different time zone, refer to your owners manual or vist a locl jeweler for adjustment on timeing, setting your watch. Your watch may be set up to show different world time zones, if so, you may have hit a button and now your watch is showing time in a different time zone as an example London / New York.

How do i set the the 24 hour hand in a rolex 16758


Yours is the original GMT Master. The GMT Master II allows the GMT hand and the regular hour hand to be set differently but not on your older model. On yours, the regular hour hand the the GMT hand are fixed so that if the triangle on the rotating bezel is at the top, the GMT hand will indicate local time. To indicate time in a 2nd timezone, rotate the bezel to orient the time to the GMT hand. There's a copy of the original instructions posted at: http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=45269

Setting the time and date


There isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Day-Date 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 day and date setting position (depending wich way you turn the crown).
NOTE: to adjust the day or date, previously you have to advance hands forward, passing 12 o'clock (midnight) mark and stop advancing at 4.00 a.m. using the crown in position as described in chapter 3. When done - push the crown fully in, then pull out to the first click and only then adjust the day or date.
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.

Setting the alternative time (red) hand on the Rolex Explorer II


Simply unscrew the crown and then turn it clockwise (or counter-clockwise). The 24-hour hand should jump one hour at a time in either direction. If you pull the crown out to the next notch, the date will change. If you pull the crown to the 3rd position, it will set the regular hour and the minute hand.

I hope this helps!

CharlieJ

Setting the independent hour hand on a Rolex Explorer II


It should be the 3rd position on the crown: 1st date, 2nd hour, 3rd time zone. And don't take it to a "jeler" like jamison said. If you cannot do this watch is fake.

ROLEX QUICK-SET FEATURE


1) un-screw the pin by turning it towards you, until the spring pops it out. 2) pull the pin out to the next notch 3) turn the pin towards you and watch the date change (if the minute hand is moving when you turn the pin, you pulled out too far).
