What's the question? From you description of the troubles you are having I suspect that your watch may on the outside look like a Rolex, but it certainly does not behave like one. I have never had such erratic behavior even with my much cheaper, but authentic Casios.

This is a self winding watch and should run for 2-3 days when fully wound.

To wind it, wave it gently from side to side for about 200 times.

If you still have problems, speak to Rolex, they should be able to sort out your problem. (see rolex.com).

These watches are selfwinding so you should not have to use the crown to wind it up. (Although some watches have this as an alternative).

To wind it up shake it gently from side to side for some minutes and it should start.

No tension on the crown wheel is worrying. If you pull it further out and can adjust the time in position 3 (fully out) and the date (half way out), then it may be that no damage has been done. If you cannot adjust the time, then it looks like a trip to the dealer is required for repair.

Good luck!

My rolex datejust watch has stopped working...rolex watches don't operate on batteries right? Why has it stopped ticking?


mcdevito75 here, The answer is no, Rolex watches do not operate with a battery. Most Rolex watches are Automatic winding with the motion of your wrist / arm. Of course if you leave your Rolex on the dresser for say 30 hours, it will run down, simply hold the watch in your hand and with a gentle rocking motion say from 6--to 12 O'Clock for about 30 seconds, this will give your automatic Rolex an initial wind up, from there you just wear the watch and it will continealy wind itself. You may also have the non automatic Rolex in which case you would have to wind it dailey. If your Rolex will not run at all no matter what you try, Check out the repair service directory here at fixya, bottom of the page click on repair service directory then watches.

I had my Rolex watch serviced 2 years ago By Rolex and now


Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

I have rolex datejust that looses time, i do not wear it to bed.


Hi Sggann. You shouldn't need to wear a Rolex automatic watch all the time for it to be kept wound, and you can in any event manually wind it 30 times to top-up the mainspring. You don't say how long you've had the watch, or when or if you've serviced it, but it sounds like it might need a clean and service; this replaces the oils which can thin out over time and effect the timekeeping of the watch, and the watch will be tested to ensure it runs well. Get Rolex to do it, unless you know a capable and accredited watchmaker - it's not cheap (around £250), but then again the watches cost a lot! All the best; Eagle58

Opening woman's rolex


You need to go to a place that sells watch and jewelry supplies, because there is a certain tool for opening a Rolex. I am interested in knowing why you need to open it up though. If this is a Authentic Rolex ALL womans Rolex watches are automatics. Try unscrewing the crown (the part used to set the time ) counter clockwise and then clockwise turn the crown and listen to hear it winding, if it is infact an automatic, wind it 50 times. After winding, push crown in ( it is spring loaded) and screw in clockwise. It should run. If wearing every day you will not have to wind again, if wearing less frequently rewind as specified.
