I am located in Melbourne Australia. Any help locating on online store where this can be purchased and send would be greatly appreciated.

best to go to a bulova dealer to get the original fitted as its most likely the stem is sheered of inside the old crown if however it has just unscrewed from the stem any good watchmaker should be able to refit it and reseal it
mcdevito75 here, Let"s hope your description of the problem with your watch is wrong. Try this sequence, First, wind your watch, the automatic continues to wind your watch when you where it but to get it started, wind it 20--30 times. 2nd, your crown locks down, turn the stem Clockwise to un-lock it (the stem) now pull the stem all the way out then back in 1/2 way to set date. Set DATE to DATE before the real date turn crown counterclockwise. Now pull out crown all the way and turn clockwise to set the DATE and time (real Date) push the crown back in and turn counterclockwise to lock the crown. If this doesn"t work, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for this adjustment.
You can try a local watch or jewelry repair, usually in your local mall, and if you don't have any luck then try a repair house like Precision Time. You will find their locations listed on their web site at PrecisionTimeCo.com.
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.
You may have screwdown crown. Try to unscrew it first and then pull out. If the crown is turning but you can not pull it out, there is a rust in the watch and you will have to find your nearest watchmaker to sort that.
Did you recently have a battery changed. A lot of times on chronos when the battery is changed the battery has to be short circuited to the AC. Which is done by taking tweezers. & touching the positive part of the battery to the part of the watch marked AC. Then try to pull the crown all the way out to time setting position press the top rt button & the second should move keep moving until it lines up with zero. If you haven't had the battery changed try what I told you to do with the crown & the top right button.
