That does sound like a peculiar problem. Without looking at it it's difficult to say. It possible the date change - stopping situation is co-incidental. All mechanical watches, particularly high quality one such as this should be serviced every two to three years to ensure optimal performance and preserve their value. I recommend you take it to a qualified repairer. Good luck.

Winding stem comes all the way out and I can't reset the time


The Rolex time change is done after three clicks when you pull the winder. If the winder can actually be pulled out of the stem (separate) the damage is serious.
Sorry. Only an authorized dealer can get the parts for it to be repaired.

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 .

Hi Bob,

Unfortunately, Rolex automatics, like all mechanical watches, must be serviced every 3-5 years. This is because the oils in the movement dry and congeal on the bottom of the wheels (gears) and dust and debris in combination work like sandpaper to cause wear on the parts.

Think of it like a fine automobile, one would never neglect the oil change in their new Mercedes because the engine could be damaged. In this case it is the movement that can have excessive wear. Also, the mainspring at this point may need to be replaced, which is the power source of your movement. We service Rolex and all other high grade watches, and always beat the price of the Rolex service center, their time frame, and can provide discontinued parts where they cannot.

We are happy to service your timepiece at a much better price than that offered. Feel free to contact us through email or phone.

I got a president day date rolex, sometime the date jump twice in 1 day


Reset the time, day and date manually from scratch. Check for another 24 hours. If the problem persists that means there is interference between day and date wheels and in this case you will need watchmakers help, as to correct such a fault the watch needs to be disassembled almost completely.

I need an owner's manual for a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Day-Date. Any idea where I can locate one?


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.

Rolex oyster perpetual datejust time/date setting instructions


Depending on how old the watch is, It may be quick set or older models are not quick set. In older models you need to unscrew the crown, pull out the crown and rotate the crown to set the time, and in order to set the date rotate the hour hand past 12 twice in order for the date to change. Set the date first and then set the hour and min. For quick set models unscrew the crown and pull it out to the fist click this position you can "quickly" set the date by rotating the crown. Set the date and then pull out the crown to the second position out. Rotate the crown to set the hour and min. Then push the crown back in and screw it down.
