Check the sides of bracelet. You will notice screw ends. Undo them with watchmakers screwdriver.
Make sure screwdrivers blade is hardened steel and in perfect condition or you will damage the screw head and will not be able to unscrew it anymore.

Rolex presidential second hand not working any tricks


No tricks, take it to a watchmaker. I am assuming it is a real President. The potential to do serious damage here is great. Don't risk trying to fix this yourself.

Where are the model number and serial number on a rolex


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Look at the side of your watchcase. On the watchcase lugs, located where the watch bracelet is attached, you may see one small hole on each lug where the spring bar is located. This means your Rolex has the traditional pierced lug style. If your Rolex does not have the pierced lug style, turn the watch over, and look for the long spring bar in the space where the bracelet meets the watchcase. The spring bar attaches the bracelet to the watchcase. The directions for removing the spring bar on both watch styles is slightly different.

    Use your thumb to press down on the link where the band meets the watchcase if your Rolex has the pierced lug style.. If your Rolex does not have pierced lugs, turn the Rolex over, and press down on the link where the band meets the case. Either way, you are applying gentle pressure to the same link, just different sides of it. Remember, you are only removing the side of the band at the bottom of the watch, so press on the link below the 6. Maintain gentle pressure on the link while performing the next step.

    Insert the tip of your spring bar tool into the lug holes, and push the spring bar inward. When done correctly, you will feel the spring bar fall into the case, rather than pop back out. Repeat this step on the other side of the spring bar.

    For a nonpierced lug watch, place the tip of your spring bar tool on one edge of the spring bar, and push inward, until the spring bar falls into the case. Repeat this step on the other side of the spring bar.

    Pull the band gently away from the watchcase. It should remove easily. You can now see the serial number on the watchcase.


  • The reference or model number of a Rolex is located between the lugs at the 12' position. It is also listed on the certificates Rolex issues.


    Hope this helps. Jewel

    My men's presidential date just is very difficult to wind. I try to wear it often, but it quits. The winding mechanism is so stiff that I can only partially wind it. It does move easily in the oposite...


    If it has only recently gone stiff then it sound like a trip to the dealer for repair.

    It may sound daft but all the Rolex I have examined are self winders. Is yours? (you can often hear the self winding mechanism by placing the watch close to your ear and rocking it gently).

    Could it be that you need to pull out the crown to wind it?

    How do i open my rolex watch band


    Do it hard way, as Rolex watch bracelets are very hard to open. Just use a bit of strength.

    Unable to Open Rolex Band [knockoff]


    Hello

    I bought one while on a buisness trip to China. I like the watch alot but the band was too big. I have a friend who's a jeweler. He fixed the band for free. It does take a special tool (which he had).

    Changing a Rolex metal watchband to a leather watchband


    Put the watch face down and examine the point where the band is connected to the watch case. you will find two holes and through them you will see sprinbar ends insertyed into watch case lugs. Take the tiny screwdriver and push the springbar end inwards,then do the same at the other lug reaching them through those holes.
    Then repeat the same at the other end of the band.
    Measure the distance between watch case lugs- this will be exact size for your new leather band.

    Rate me, plesae.
