Question about Rolex Watches
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

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.

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.

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.
