Usually to change the date you need to have the crown pulled out to a position that is between the "closed" position and the position where it will move the minute/second hands.

Winding stem comes all the way out and I can't reset the time


The Rolex time change is done after three clicks when you pull the winder. If the winder can actually be pulled out of the stem (separate) the damage is serious.
Sorry. Only an authorized dealer can get the parts for it to be repaired.

Hi, I have a Daytona 24 number stainless steel watch: Back: engraved number 045 on "pin holder;" has WINNER then next line ROLEX, then next to word "ROLEX" the race flag, then under...


Howdy..

Not sure what your question is.. but I assume you wish to know if you have the real thing or not.
The watch you describe is a reproduction and not the genuine article.

I am sure there are other indicators.. however the Daytona and 99.9999% of all Rolex watches do not have engraving on the back cover.
Best of luck

How due i set the date and day on my daytona oyster rolex


You can get user instructions for their web site http://www.rolex.com/en#/rolex-watches .

Click on "collection" and then choose your watch from the list (incidentally, I couldn't find "daytona oyster" but "Daytona" and "Oyster"!).

At the bottom of the page you will find "downloads".

Click on this and then on "user guides".

My rolex jz stopped moving.


AS I'm sure you know, when changing the time (presumably by pulling out the winder), the watch stops.

Normally the watch re-starts when the winder is returned to the "in" position.

Check that the winder is fully home.

If it doesn't start, pull the winder out and in again. If necessary try this several times.

If this does not solve the problem, then a visit to Rolex may be necessary!

Can you please tell me how to set my Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust? Day light savings toime ends this evening and the watch needs to be set back 1 hour.


Unscrew the crown and then pull the crown out to the second click and turn. When done push the crown back in and screw the crown back down.

It is very important to screw the crown back down. If this is not done the watch is NOT water resistant.

Hope this helps.

I need an owner's manual for a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date. Any idea where I can locate one?


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.

Rolex oyster perpetual datejust time/date setting instructions


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.
