Question about Watches
I was winding it and the crown with the stem just pulled out of the watch. I put it back in and screwed it back down to prevent moisture from getting in. This is a vintage (but don't know what year) lady's perpetual Datejust. Please someone tell me this will be a minor repair! (The **** thing has been in the shop twice before, though I don't remember why, but it's kind of souring me on Rolex's. I already don't wear it that often because I'm concerned with theft, but it has great sentimental value.

Take it to a registered Rolex dealer it may cost a little bit more but it will be worth it in the end and it will be done by a professional, hope this helps, Paul.

Do not open the watch yet, as you do not know how to get the stem out.
Take an eyeglass and examine the crown. You will find the small hub in the centre of the crown. If the centre of this hub is hollow and you can see the thread in it- you will be able to screw it back on stem (all watch crowns are screwed on to stems, never pressed).
If the centre of that hub looks filled with metal, then the stem end is broke and you will need replace stem AND crown (the metal filling the hub is the broken end of stem).
In case if the crown still in tact, let me know by asking questions and I'll guide you through all the process HOW TO.
Rate me, please.
