Try these guys for a manual; http://www.timemerchants.com/catalog.htm They have the 2000 daytona manual and several older ones available. Otherwise try your local Rolex dealer; http://www.rolex.com/en/collection/rolex-gallery/cosmograph-daytona/specification.jsp#/en/xml/inside-rolex/sales-service/affiliates/index Hope this helps :)

You should be able to have one fitted by a Seiko authorized dealer.

Go to your nearest dealer and ask him to fit a new winder.

HOW TO START YOUR AUTOMATIC WATCH


mcdevito75 here,The Automatic feature in your WATCH consists of a counter-weight attached to the MAIN SPRING by a gear that allows a SLOW but steady wind of your watch with the motion of your WRIST, ARM. Once, only in HIGH END watches, today almost all watch manufacturers have this feature in some of their models. Everyone who owns an AUTOMATIC watch knows, you can START your AUTOMATIC watch by WINDING THE STEM and you can continue to wind the stem with no end. This will at least START your AUTOMATIC watch and, this is true to some extent BUT, does this apply to my watch you ask?, Here"s how to tell if your AUTOMATIC watch will START with a few winds of the stem or not. ------- Very Simply, Hold your AUTOMATIC watch to your ear and wind the stem, if you hear a sound as though something is DRAGGING or the stem feels slightly stiff one way you wind the stem and you hear a clicking sound when you wind in the other direction, then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that will start with a few winds of the stem, approx, 20 turns or winds. If on the other hand you hear nothing when you wind the stem and the stem feels very loose when turnning then you have the TYPE of AUTOMATIC watch that winds only with the motion of your wrist / arm, to start this type of AUTOMATIC watch, simply hold the watch in your hand and rock your watch back and forth, say from the 12 O"clock to the 6 O"clock, and or, Hold your watch securely in your hand a make circular motions with your hand, any movement to get your watches counter-balance to turn and thus wind your watch. Approx. 1 minute of this extra motion will start your AUTOMATIC watch, then simply wear your watch and your wrists / arm motion will keep it wound.

I have a new chronograph Michele watch. How do I change the day of the week without changing the date?


As per the instruction PDF that I just read, the day of the week only changes with each 24 hour rotation. Therefore to change it, you might pull the crown out all the way and wind it through every hour in each day until it advances to the day you want. Then set the correct time. Push the crown in one notch to the second position and wind the dates forward until it stops on the one you want. It doesn't appear that going backwards for either the time (for day of the week) or date works.

How to set Time in Rolex 116520...thnks a lot


The Daytona's Construction
  • Most stainless steel watches are made of surgical 316L steel, which is very good. Rolex goes a step beyond this, using 904L steel, it is both super corrosion resistant and highly polishable, which is why a Rolex shines like no other. Its bracelet is very easy to size adjust, using screws instead of pins. It is actually made of 100 moving parts that conform to the wrist with smooth edges that never snag or pinch the skin. The bracelet also has the Easylink system which lets you make a further adjustment when your wrist expands due to exercise and high altitudes. Rolex watches were originally intended to be a working man's watch and its construction is shock resistant, antimagnetic and water resistant. It achieves water resistance through its triplock system winding crown.
    You must first turn the watch crown counterclockwise until it releases from its seal. The watch crown will then pull out to let you either wind it or set the time. When complete, you must apply gentle pressure to it and turn it clockwise until it screws back into the case to protect it from dust and water. The Daytona caseback is hermetically sealed and only an authorized Rolex service person will be able to open it.
  • The Daytona's Movement
    The movement of the Daytona has changed over the years, it currently uses a 4130 caliber in-house movement. It is made of 290 parts which is much less than other Swiss chronograph movements. Its smaller size is efficient and precise and lets it fit into to the relatively small 40mm case. Note the size difference between the Daytona and the Tag Heuer Aquaracer. The watch movement also contains a Parachrom hairspring. This device protects the movement from magnetic fields and protects it from shock. On the front dial are the words, "superlative chronometer officially tested." This means the watch has undergone two weeks of testing under extreme conditions to meet Swiss standards. This process is standard for every Rolex with chronometer function. Using the Chronograph
  • The chronograph function can be first and foremost used as a stop watch. To start, press down on the button above the crown. To stop, press the top button again, and to reset press the button below the crown. The chronograph can also be used as a large second hand if you synchronize it to begin with the small second hand at six o'clock of the dial. It can also be used to calculate speed, which is a little more complex. It utilizes the units per hour scale that is engraved in the bezel of the watch. For example, suppose you have taken 50 seconds to travel 1 mile. Looking at the dial you can then determine your speed to be 72 mph. Average speed times can also be determined using further calculations.

  • Any other questions I would contact ROLEX at their website. They even have downloads. Good luck.

    Watch is working fine but the chronograph is not


    sounds like it needs to be serviced under warranty. The clutch mechanism maybe jammed or broken.

    I have a Croton watch. It is a automatic.I can't get it to run.I was informed that the watch had to be wound. The crown{stem} has four settings.I shak it and it runs for about 15 seconds


    In the first position (closest to the case but not screwed down if it's a screwdown crown) wind the crown clockwise about 40 turns and it should run fine. The automatic winding system relies on wrist movement to spin a weighted rotor that winds the watch. When you're not wearing the watch or not moving much when you do have it on, it will run down and you have to manually wind it to get it going again. If you wear it everyday and are reasonably active you may never have to wind it but take it off for a day and you will.

    Watch winding is not holding


    Two words: Wind it! When any self-winding (automatic) watch runs down from not wearing it you have to manually wind it to get it going again. Once you've done that the movement of your wrist will cause the self-winding rotor mechanism to keep it running as long as you are reasonably active and wear it everyday. Just wind it about 40 turns and you'll be good to go. Oris is a great watch company and you should enjoy it for many years.

    Kenneth cole k3771, is the self-wind function working?


    Self winding watched should not need to be wound as long as they are being worn.

    To tell if the self winding mechanism is working, hold the watch close to your ear (hold it vertical, as though it was on your wrist) and rock it gently. You should be able to hear a ratchet operating (a soft clicking noise).

    I can't help thinking your suspicion about the mechanism having failed, sound very likely.

    Tissot PRS 200 My watch is not keeping time. It is not a batery problem. I have been told that it is because the chronograph is always working. How do I shut it down ?


    Your true actual time second hand is on one of your subdials. That big "second" hand is really your chronograph seconds timer. It should start and stop when you depress one of the plungers/ buttons on the side of your watch.
    Again, that big hand does not need to be turning all the time (or ever if you never use your advanced stopwatch/ chronograph). The true seconds hand is very small on one of the smaller dials.
    Good luck, I hope that's all it is
