I have a rolex datejust pearl ladies watch, my time keeps stopping every 3 to 4 days, it seems as though it set itself an hour and half back! I hope I didnt confuse you. I need to know how to adjust the time, to show the correct time.
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It depends on how much time the automatic winding mechanism rotated on the hand before taking it off.If the main spring is fully loaded and the watch is in good condition then it should work about 50 hours.
It seems to me that the company servicing your timepiece (Rolex or otherwise) must have missed something or did not properly service your timepiece.
You are correct that your watch should not require service every ten months. After servicing, your Rolex, like most all automatics, should run properly for 3-5 years depending on environmental conditions. Our Rolex service offers a one year warranty, and if any issues present within that time, the service is free.
I would recommend using a company that has a full time Certified Master Horologist on staff to service your timepiece that offers a warranty on their work. Thanks for the rating, and we are happy to help you and service your Rolex.
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.
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. Do not forget to rate, please.
Depending on how old the watch is, It may be quick set or older models are not quick set. In older models you need to unscrew the crown, pull out the crown and rotate the crown to set the time, and in order to set the date rotate the hour hand past 12 twice in order for the date to change. Set the date first and then set the hour and min. For quick set models unscrew the crown and pull it out to the fist click this position you can "quickly" set the date by rotating the crown. Set the date and then pull out the crown to the second position out. Rotate the crown to set the hour and min. Then push the crown back in and screw it down.
Stress won't affect your watch's timekeeping ability, but position
will. When you lay the watch down at night, in which position is it?
Also, during the day, is your arm in a static position for long periods
of time? A Rolex chronometer (like the Datejust) should run approx. 36
hours after being fully wound -- without any movement. If the watch
stops dead, then there is a problem with the movement and/or rotor. If
it losses time, I'd bet on a static position problem. Let me know the
answers to those questions and I'll try to help you get to the bottom
of the problem.
