Let me start by saying that I own this watch and LOVE it!

To set the time you need to pull the crown all the way out to the furthest position.

To set the date you need to have the crown in the position in between the "winding" position and the "time set" position. Basically, pull the crown out till you hear/feel 1 click to wind, 2 clicks (total) to set the date, and 3 (total) clicks to set the time. I always set the date first to 1 day behind the current date. I then move the crown out to set the time so that I can set the watch to either AM/PM depending on the actual time. For example, I set my Rolex today (the 5th of January at 3pm - just an example). I would first move the crown to the date setting function and move it to January 4. I would then move it out one more position to set the time. I would go around the watch until the date changed to the 5th and then go around from 12 to 12 to change from AM to PM. I would then move it to the 3 and then I'm all set. This is helpful because it will ensure that your date will correctly change when the day changes and not be 12 hours behind.

Winding and setting the time on a rolex 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.

Bought rolex yacht masater 18k white gold on ebay


Jimmy, Put a Paypal Dispute IMMEDIATELY!!!

also go to search > advance search > get member contact info

How much did you pay? the watch is guaranteed a fake. When Fake watches are made they are all marked 18k because they do not make different parts for ones that are going to be stainless steel and ones that are going to be gold plated.

If you need help contact me directly gtomab@gmail.com

Rolex watch


Hi tia

If it is a geniune Rolex... dont even think about it!! Take it to a jewellers for repair. Even if it is not, and you wish the watch to remain water resistant, then the casings and seals should be cleaned and serviced, even sometimes replaced when put back together. It is worth it to maintain the integrity of the watch... and make it last:) Jewellers dont charge much for this service
