Question about Rolex Oyster Perpetual Lady Datejust Pearlmaster 18kt Yellow Gold Diamond 80318PM Watch for Women

1 Answer

My three-year old (real) Rolex Oyster Perpetual Lady Date Just started losing time after just six months. It would stop and start intemittently and lose a few minutes every hour. Winding did no good. I took it in for servicing under the warranty. It did okay for about ten months, then the problem reoccurred. I took it in again under warranty; this time it was apparently serviced much more thoroughly. It remained problem-free for ten months, and now the same issue has begun again. I wear the watch all the time, taking it off only to shower. I know how to wind it. That hasn't helped. It is no longer under warrantly, but a watch of this caliber shouldn't require service so soon after purchase and at a ten-month intervals. What might be wrong?

It seems to me that the company servicing your timepiece (Rolex or otherwise) must have missed something or did not properly service your timepiece.

You are correct that your watch should not require service every ten months. After servicing, your Rolex, like most all automatics, should run properly for 3-5 years depending on environmental conditions. Our Rolex service offers a one year warranty, and if any issues present within that time, the service is free.

I would recommend using a company that has a full time Certified Master Horologist on staff to service your timepiece that offers a warranty on their work. Thanks for the rating, and we are happy to help you and service your Rolex.

Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

SOURCE: Rolex oyster perpetual datejust time/date setting instructions

Depending on how old the watch is, It may be quick set or older models are not quick set. In older models you need to unscrew the crown, pull out the crown and rotate the crown to set the time, and in order to set the date rotate the hour hand past 12 twice in order for the date to change. Set the date first and then set the hour and min. For quick set models unscrew the crown and pull it out to the fist click this position you can "quickly" set the date by rotating the crown. Set the date and then pull out the crown to the second position out. Rotate the crown to set the hour and min. Then push the crown back in and screw it down.

SOURCE: how to adjust day date on older rolex perpetual day date 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: My wifes recently repaired Rolex loses about an

Is it an automatic self wind or wind up? An automatic watch has a weight that winds the main spring and if you wind it by the crown it will not stop. If its one that you wind by hand then the watch should be wound daily at the same time...like right before bed or when she wakes up. Wind gently until it stops. That costly repair should come with a warranty so if she consistently winds daily and still loses time you need to send it back!

If the watch is an automatic then she can gently hold the watch in her hand and rock it back and forth a good 20 times or so and that will give it a good winding! This is a common issue we see at our watch repair business. Some people do not move enough during the day to keep an automatic movement wound. If thats the case then there is nothing ong with the repair, just make sure it gets a good daily wind! :-)

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Daytona

Howdy..

Not sure what your question is.. but I assume you wish to know if you have the real thing or not.
The watch you describe is a reproduction and not the genuine article.

I am sure there are other indicators.. however the Daytona and 99.9999% of all Rolex watches do not have engraving on the back cover.
Best of luck

Ive wound watch about 40 times it runs for about 3 minutes then stops again


I have the same watch 20 years old. I cannot wind this watch.
it is self winding , which is generated by arm or wrist movement.
i purchased a box for times I won't be wearing. Will rotate watch 5 minutes every hour ( belt driven- only use that other winders say gear my experience is belt drive more reliable)
if you have to wind this watch I would question if it is real Rolex.

How to set the time and date to my rolex, and if under number 6 when you remove bracelet i don't have number that means is a fake?


That number does correspond with a genuine Rolex. Stop Ina watch repair store where they actually do the work. I have not seen a knock off with a serial numbers or model number stamped between the case lugs.
Hope this helps.

Winding stem comes all the way out and I can't reset the time


The Rolex time change is done after three clicks when you pull the winder. If the winder can actually be pulled out of the stem (separate) the damage is serious.
Sorry. Only an authorized dealer can get the parts for it to be repaired.

My wife's Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch is running very slow. It was cleaned approx 7 years ago and seemed to run properly. I phoned the NY service center which quoted a $600 basic cleaning fee which seems...


Hi , I am sorry to say that a rolex requires servicing on a regular basis . Every 3 - 5 years would be advised . If you consider that your watch is a delicate machine that may be working 24 hours a day for years then its not unreasonable that it needs servicing. Over time the fine oils dry and degrade , they need replacing , and parts can become damaged .
As to cost , this is a skilled job . To service a rolex in the correct way requires not only skill ,but the correct tooling and equipment . Also the materials used must be genuine rolex , this is costly . Your accredited service centre will then provide a 2 year guarantee .
All in all the price of $600.00 reflects the labour of a skilled man and his investment in gaining rolex status .
There will be cheaper alternatives but beware as they will probably not be rolex trained and wont be using original materials .

The date and day have stopped working on my replica rolex daydate i have adjusted the pin several times but it is still not moving?


Your calendar wheel is damaged. Unfortunately, it is illegal to own or work on a Rolex replica / fake Rolex as it is a trademark violation. I would suggest purchasing a genuine Rolex as a replacement, as there are generally no identifiable movements, and therefore no identifiable replacement parts for the movement in your timepiece.

Be aware, however, that all automatic and mechanical watches, such as Rolex, must be services regularly, every 3-5 years, for them to last and work properly. Thanks for the rating!

Oyster Perpetual Day Date keeps stopping


That does sound like a peculiar problem. Without looking at it it's difficult to say. It possible the date change - stopping situation is co-incidental. All mechanical watches, particularly high quality one such as this should be serviced every two to three years to ensure optimal performance and preserve their value. I recommend you take it to a qualified repairer. Good luck.
