Question about Rolex Watches

Rolex Sumariner with Date submersible to 300metres

My watch which is 5 years old gains 5 minutes a month. Please can someone give me some advice on how to get the watch better regulated. My previous Gucci which was a quarter of the price never lost a minute over 20 years! Many thanks.

Your submariner is an automatic movement that needs to be serviced every 3-5 years to replenish the oils and to stop any wear or tear on the movement the regulation is part of the service

SOURCE: rolex watch yacht master set time

Let me start by saying that I own this watch and LOVE it!

To set the time you need to pull the crown all the way out to the furthest position.

To set the date you need to have the crown in the position in between the "winding" position and the "time set" position. Basically, pull the crown out till you hear/feel 1 click to wind, 2 clicks (total) to set the date, and 3 (total) clicks to set the time. I always set the date first to 1 day behind the current date. I then move the crown out to set the time so that I can set the watch to either AM/PM depending on the actual time. For example, I set my Rolex today (the 5th of January at 3pm - just an example). I would first move the crown to the date setting function and move it to January 4. I would then move it out one more position to set the time. I would go around the watch until the date changed to the 5th and then go around from 12 to 12 to change from AM to PM. I would then move it to the 3 and then I'm all set. This is helpful because it will ensure that your date will correctly change when the day changes and not be 12 hours behind.

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: I need help setting a Watch Activa AD 004-002

The Activa web site has no offering for instructions but it says that they are part of the Invicta group. You could try the instructions on the Invicta web site.

To obtain these go to "Invicta.com", put the cursor over "collections" and click on "instruction manual".

On the next page click on the link below the Invicta logo and a set of instrucitons appear.

This set is rather a long one that covers all the watches that Invicta make, so you may have to search for a while to find one that looks like yours.

Good 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.

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.

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 .

Hello please help, I wish to know what year Rolex Oyster Perpetual Lady Date model 6519 was Manufactured. Thank you in advance.


This model Rolex has been manufactured over multiple years, and it is not possible to date your watch based purely on is model number. However, it is possible to date most Rolexes based on their serial numbers, which can be found stamped between the lower lugs (i.e., the lugs below 6:00 on the watch dial). You will need to remove the band from these lugs to read the serial number.

Dating the watch case of a Rolex does not necessarily date the entire watch. It is possible that a movement from another watch was placed into a watch case that is younger or older than the the movement. Like Rolex watch cases, Rolex movements can also be dated by their serial numbers, if this is a concern you have about this particular watch.

This jeweler has put together a nice summary of when Rolex watch models were introduced and which serial numbers are associated with specific years of manufacture. Once you have found your serial number, this should help you date your watch. I have no connection (financial or otherwise) with this web site, but I found the information useful and presented in an easy to understand way.

Time so fast


If we are talking about 30/60sec per day then a regulation can be done.If you are talking of 30 mins per day there is a problem.Either way you need a Rolex watchmaker,if the watch is 4/5 years old then it may be time to service the watch.

IT IS RUNNING SLOW EVEN THOUGH IT'S BEEN WOUND.


If your watch is less than 2 years old then they may service it for free, and if it is that new I would take it back to point of purchase for assistance. Even though Rolex's are Chronometers they are not known for their ability to keep near perfect time. If you are losing only 6 seconds a day then you are still over 99% accurate and it does not really get much better than that (that means you may loose a couple mninutes a month. A watch winder that you set your watch in while not wearing can keep it spinning/ winding and therefore may increase accuracy.
If your watch is loosing a lot of time (half an hour a day) or if the watch is more than 5 years old, it likely needs some servicing. Oils can harden and thicken within your watch and this will affect the performance. Rolex recommends servicing your watch every 5 years or so to keep it in peak condition. A usual service entails a cleaning, oiling and regulating; this usually costs from $350 to $700 depending on where you go and if nothing else is wrong with your watch.
But again, if you are only loosing a few minutes a day, then your watch is still in good shape and I would not recommend paying the money to get it to work only a small bit better.

Hello Kristy

You need to add this underneath the the person you are talking to by clicking COMMENT below their post. Fixya gets 7 million posts a year, so the chance of the person seeing it are non existent. Your original post is in the link.

I have a Chinese Rolex Submariner clone. It gained 5 minutes a day when I first got it. Your body's electrical energy and magnetism can affect timekeeping and you can have the watch demagnetised.

Rolex GMT Master II date changing after midnight


If it still under warranty take it back to rolex, other wise take it to an indpendent watchmaker they should be able to fix it for a small fee. The watch probably doesnt need a service yet if it is new.

Watch gains time (at least 5 minutes per day); also Chronometer registers don't work


Nice watch!

Really worth it to bring it in to GOOD watch tech center (or mail it to Rolex in NYC) - expect to spend 'bout $200 for a cleaning and adjustment. This needs to be done every 5 years or so - the price of owning a fine mechanical watch.

Drop into any Rolex retailer for help with using the buttons.....

Good luck!
