Question about Rolex Daytona 116520 Wrist Watch
Its about 6 months old,it was a gift and I waould assume it should last a lot longer than 6 months for the price of it.
I'm going to venture to say that this watch is a counterfeit, has a quartz movement and needs the battery replaced.

This is one sign it maybe real. Everything from the solid headpieces, double steel pins, crew together band, gas relief valve, etc. can be signs that this is a real Rolex. Your best bet is always to go to a Rolex dealer or qualified watch maker/technician for an inspection. Good luck!

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.

Rolex does not engrave the case back. If it says 24 hours at Daytona, or wording like that, the watch is not real... It's a fake, or as we say more kindly.. It's a replica, and can be bought on any replica watch web site for $30 to $80, for an automatic mov't., 21J, made in China.
Also, the sub-dials will not function on this watch. A Daytona needs the proper movement to operate the chronograph as it was intended..... To act as a stopwatch.. and measure time... seconds, minutes and hours. This is done by activating pushers at 2 and 4 positions, and the pushers on 21J replicas just don't operate a chron. for the purpose of measuring time. They may move and measure something else, like military time, or the date, but definitely not record seconds, minutes or hours. There are also no manuals on how to operate the Daytona that comes with these replica watches. You should know how this watch functions and how to operate the pushers, and what they do before you should buy and enjoy this type of chronograph watch. It's simple, just take the time to ask people in the know... how the daytona works, what the sub-dials measure and how to use them, etc. In no time you'll understand the operation of this beautifully made watch. Unfortunately, a daytona is out of reach for most of us... That's why seeking out a quality rolex replica for much less money is the way to go if you love this watch... A quality one can look, feel, and function just as good as the authentic Daytona, and you won't have to out out over $10K to get one.

If you bought it at a market it is a fake watch, made in Far East country.
People who can afford to buy Rolex watch will NEVER sell it at a market.
All you can do is to find your nearest watch repair shop and ask at least to restart it. Do not expect even average timekeeping. The function buttons probably will not work as well.
Sell it, if you can and never buy watch at a market again.
