Question about Rolex Daytona 116520 Wrist Watch
I have a Submariner 16610 M Model and it goes faster almost 40 seconds per week. I went to the authorized dealer in Cairo, Egypt and they told me that this is normal!!!!! Any thoughts???? How can I report this to ROLEX mother company? If you can help, please contact me at: email@example.com
Please don't compare your 'copy' Rolex to the real thing, no comparison.A Rolex that has been timed properly and kept up on maintenance should run plus 6 to minus 4 seconds per day. This is considered to be acceptable. If you don't understand why a mechanical watch can't keep as good as a Timex there are libraries of books that have been written to explain it. Gravity, temperature, hard knocks, magnetism and the position of your watch are just a few of the obstacles mechanical watches face. By the way, no Rolex will ever keep time as well as a $30 Timex, about one half second a day or better.

I don't know if I can help you out, but I can tell you that even a low quality Daytona, or Submariner copy can be adjusted. My 1992 Daytona copy is at about 10 sec a month fast. I read a **** load about the movement, and did the adjustment myself. Any watch shop that tunes watches can do it.
I don't know what year your Submariner is, but today Rolex is using a new main spring (it is now blue). I would think a replacement spring would be the most you might need, but a good tune-up should do the trick. If it is real, I would think about sending it to Rolex for cleaning and a tune-up ($$$).
