Insurance won't pay for water damage to rolex watch

I have a Rolex Ladydate 18ct gold -I noticed water in watch face and took it to the Rolex dealer. The watch is insured and the insurance company are saying it is wear and tear and will not pay for the repair. They said that on speaking to the dealer the cause of water damage could be due to gradual operating cause (as the gaskets which prevent it airtight might have lost its intended function as this watch is almost 5 year old) Can someone advise me please

SOURCE: Rolex runs down

sounds like you need a new watchmaker, Your watch is designed to be worn 16 hours a day an rested for 8 while you sleep and this should keep it running. there are several different mainsprings that can be installed depending on the age and your activity level. I would be happy to take a look at it for you.

SOURCE: winding and setting the time on a rolex watch

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.

SOURCE: how to change bezel on Rolex Datejust

The bezel is secured by a Teflon gasket. To remove the bezel I would use a watch knife and gently press it in between the bezel and the case. Make sure you go straight in and it might not be a bad idea to use a layer of plastic around the knife so it doesn't leave marks. Also, do not use a widling motion. GO STRAIGHT IN. This will also prevent damage to the case and bezel. Repeat this several times working your way around the bezel. Be sure you don't continue to apply pressure with the knife once the bezel begins to come up as you don't want to damage the Teflon seal. Once you have the bezel out you will need to replace the Teflon seal the exact same way it came off on your replacement bezel and press back into place.

My rolex is fack or real are inform that?


A strong clue will be where you bought it from. Genuine Rolex watches mostly do not find their way into the hands of dubious characters unless they are the proceeds of crime.

Most Rolex watches that are honestly obtained tend to be sourced from high class jewellers and watch-makers and when the owner wants a change or needs to liquidate the value they tend to return to these establishments or to a rather exclusive sort of pawnbroker.

All Rolex watches have value as prestige timepieces or as collectibles and even the oldest and least desirable carry a price tag of around a couple of thousand pounds Sterling and good prices can be obtained for damaged and none-working examples.

If you bought your Rolex from a prestige establishment with a strong reputation and paid Rolex money for it there is a good chance it is genuine, though it would be a good idea to obtain a second opinion from a Rolex approved outlet or service centre.

If your watch was at a bargain price and not from a prestige outlet there is a strong chance it is a fake and again it would be wise to obtain a qualified opinion about this. It is not a good idea to pay high insurance premiums for a watch assumed to be worth thousands of pounds when in reality it is worth only hundreds or even less.

1992 daytona series rolex ( real ? )


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!
