SOURCE: Rolex runs down
Unfortunately, it actually may be true that the watch is functioning properly.
A self-winding watch that keeps running down can be an early symptom of Parkinson's disease.

I need to know if this watch is an automatic or quartz (battery-operated) watch. For either watch, your crown screws in clockwise- which, by the way, is on the right hand side of your watch, and looks like a miniature doorknob. Unscrew it COUNTERCLOCKWISE, then, if your watch has a date on the dial (face of watch), your crown will pull out in two different positions. The first position is for your day/date. Forward will either do the day or date and backwards will do the other. DO NOT SET YOUR WATCH BETWEEN 10 O'CLOCK AND 2 O'CLOCK, because it can ruin your watch. The second position (pull out completely) is for setting the time. Go around until the day and date changes so you're sure that you're on a.m. or p.m. and then set accordingly. Push the stem all the way back in - this is your winding mode if you have an automatic. Wind 50 times before use, or else it won't run correctly. Now, push the stem back in (it's spring-loaded), and turn it counterclockwise to seat the tap, then clockwise until it's completely screwed in.

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.

This is a cheap replica fake. No daytonas are engraved on the case back. If new and everything works... I mean it runs... then it's worth is what you are willing to pay for it. Anyone else who knows this watch would not give you much if anything for it. Maybe in a pawn shop it might fool; someone and they may pay $100 for it but that's a rip off. These watches usually have a 21J auto Japanese mov't., fairly reliable, but far from being capable of supporting the true function of running a chronograph.
Better off to search for a quality daytona replica if you like the watch, and get an automatic asian copy of the 7750 valjoux movement, running at either 21600bph or 28800 bph, where all the chrono's function and support the sub-dial true functions of counting seconds, minutes, and hours. You can get a replica Daytona of this quality and reliability if you search the web and ask lots of questions before you buy. You should not have to pay more than $250.00 for this quality of Daytona, but be careful, lots of dealers out there will advertise this same datytona for as much as $625 to $1000, and it's the same Daytona replica, from perhaps the same factory in China, have the same asian auto mov't. and they'll ask much, much more. Don't be fooled. Know who you're dealing with. Get some facts and really know the watch, and learn more of the replica watch market before you ever place an order. Read what people are saying and talking about in "Replica Watch Info." or "Replica Geek" newsletters available to all replica watch collectors and enthusiasts. So, to sum up... If any daytona you see has 24 hrs. at daytona on the case back... beware.. a red flag say's this is fake. By the way, the case back if knurled, is removed with a common jewelers watch wrench. Some of the cheaper daytonas might even be quartz.. but most I've seen with 24hrs. at Daytona have a 21J automatic mov't.

The advice given here is accurate to a degree. When wound, a rolex daytona IS running. However, it is the running seconds hand in the small sub-dial that is actually running. In the earlier Daytonas, this sub-dial was at the 9 o'clock position on the dial, (pre-2001 series daytonas). The later daytonas, from 2001 on, use the seconds at 6 position for counting seconds. The main sweeping second hand on the watch dial will NOT start until activated by the pusher at the 2 position. That pusher needs to be unscrewed and then pushed to start the large sweeping second hand. This action, in turn, starts the remaining 2 sub-dials in motion, counting minutes and hours. To stop the chronograph function, you push the pusher @ the 2 position again, to stop the sub-dial hands from counting, and then push the pusher @ the 4 position to re-set the dials to their "straight up position". This stops the chrono's function, until it is needed again, BUT the main running seconds, (at either the 9 or 6 sub-dial position, depending on the year series of the daytona) will continue to run, thus keeping accurate time.
Hope this gives you a better idea of how the timekeeping of the chronograph function on a Daytona works.
So, to start your seconds running you need to start the chrono function by pressing the pusher at the 2 position. That will allow you to see the large sweeping second hand I think you're referring to here.
Hope this has helped.
