Watch stops after wearing for a few hours


Self winding watches need motion ( wrist twist) without they can stop. Sometimes just shake your wrist for a few seconds. I purchased a winder box for times I don't wear. ( Amazon)!
it is belt driven winder, rotates watch 5 minutes every hour.

My rolex works good on the table, but stops every now and then when i am wearing it


That's not good, obviously. Who serviced it?
How long ago? Do you have a receipt with warranty of service?
Generally, Rolex's run forever without much service. If an authorized Rolex technician worked on your watch, it would be running like a .... Like a Rolex! Kidding aside, get in touch with the services, nukes you were simply told that by the seller.

What's the question? From you description of the troubles you are having I suspect that your watch may on the outside look like a Rolex, but it certainly does not behave like one. I have never had such erratic behavior even with my much cheaper, but authentic Casios.

This watch is self winding and will stop after 2-3 days if not worn.

To wind it up,shake it from side to side gently for a few minutes (about 100-200 times) and this should wind it up sufficient to make it run for some time.

These watches thrive on being used and if you wish to maintain its operation, wear it at least every other day.

Keeps stopping even when i am wearing it on my wrist.


Your Rolex sounds like it has a problem with the automatic winding gear train.A Rolex needs regular servicing when parts can be inspected and replaced.Servicing is about 3-5 year intervals.
You need a specialist Rolex watchmaker as only they can obtain Rolex parts.Try www.rolexrepairs.co.uk a full service will take 2-3 weeks.

My rolex datejust watch has stopped working...rolex watches don't operate on batteries right? Why has it stopped ticking?


mcdevito75 here, The answer is no, Rolex watches do not operate with a battery. Most Rolex watches are Automatic winding with the motion of your wrist / arm. Of course if you leave your Rolex on the dresser for say 30 hours, it will run down, simply hold the watch in your hand and with a gentle rocking motion say from 6--to 12 O'Clock for about 30 seconds, this will give your automatic Rolex an initial wind up, from there you just wear the watch and it will continealy wind itself. You may also have the non automatic Rolex in which case you would have to wind it dailey. If your Rolex will not run at all no matter what you try, Check out the repair service directory here at fixya, bottom of the page click on repair service directory then watches.

I have bought a new daytona but after every few hours it just stops anf i have to reset it again.its quite frustrating


A Rolex watch is automatic.It needs to be worn 8 hours per day to store enough power to run 36 hours off the wrist.Assuming that you are wearing the watch daily if it still stops there is a problem with the auto winding or mainspring.As a new watch it will be under the Rolex guarantee so return it to the place of purchase.If you dont have a guarantee contact www.rolexrepairs.co.uk for advice or a free estimate.

Stopwatch second hand stops/jams at 57 seconds point, jamming the whole works. watch stops. keeps excellent time otherwise if stopwatch not used. 2003 SS model. bought new from rolex.


this watch will need a service from a rolex trained repairer wich wont be cheap 700 dollars min or 500uk pounds min..you could try tapping watch in palm of hand to see if a batton or luminous paint has come loose,then all it needs is movement taking out and blown clean inside case.any decent repairer can do this.sometimes the teeth on a wheel can wear in one place hence it always stops in same place.recomend service as best action,you never loose on a rolex...

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.
