SOURCE: operating instructions for a replica Rolex

I need to know if this watch is an automatic or quartz (battery-operated) watch. For either watch, your crown screws in clockwise- which, by the way, is on the right hand side of your watch, and looks like a miniature doorknob. Unscrew it COUNTERCLOCKWISE, then, if your watch has a date on the dial (face of watch), your crown will pull out in two different positions. The first position is for your day/date. Forward will either do the day or date and backwards will do the other. DO NOT SET YOUR WATCH BETWEEN 10 O'CLOCK AND 2 O'CLOCK, because it can ruin your watch. The second position (pull out completely) is for setting the time. Go around until the day and date changes so you're sure that you're on a.m. or p.m. and then set accordingly. Push the stem all the way back in - this is your winding mode if you have an automatic. Wind 50 times before use, or else it won't run correctly. Now, push the stem back in (it's spring-loaded), and turn it counterclockwise to seat the tap, then clockwise until it's completely screwed in.

SOURCE: how do i wind and set my Rolex Oyster Perpetual 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, always 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: If the watch is not worn for a day, is it normal

mcdevito75 here, Yes it is normal, especially if your Rolex is an automatic watch. The motion of your Wrist / Hand keeps your watch wound thru the Counter balance on the movement, as the counter balance turns it winds the mainspring little by little, thus keeping your watch wound. Once you take off your watch, if long enough the mainspring simply un-winds and slows and will eventually stop your watch completely. You can keep your Rolex wound even when you take it off by means of a watch winder, a small machine that will keep your watch in motion, or by hand, by rocking the watch back and firth in your hand for about 30 seconds, say before you gpo to bed at night, this way there is always some wind to your watch.

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.

Bulova Watch Millennia Motion 96B17 - stops - needs battery????


Dude, of course it stops during the night - it's a perpetual motion / kinetic watch. It doesn't have a conventional battery. When you move your arm (while wearing it), the natural motion of your arm will 'automagically' wind the watch. There's nothing wrong with it - these types of watches always have to be re-set in the morning if you don't wear it to bed (or you don't toss and turn in bed).

Rolex watch stops only when I wear it


Kristy,
Stress won't affect your watch's timekeeping ability, but position will. When you lay the watch down at night, in which position is it? Also, during the day, is your arm in a static position for long periods of time? A Rolex chronometer (like the Datejust) should run approx. 36 hours after being fully wound -- without any movement. If the watch stops dead, then there is a problem with the movement and/or rotor. If it losses time, I'd bet on a static position problem. Let me know the answers to those questions and I'll try to help you get to the bottom of the problem.
