Re: faux men's rolex date just

An authentic Rolex will have a screw down back with exactly 144 small teeth. You can only open a Rolex case with a special Rolex tool (Key). We use the Bergeon hand wrench to open Rolex cases. Supplied with 6 Bergeon grooved chucks(18.50, 20.20, 22.50, 26.50, 28.30 and 29.50 mm), these are the same chuck used in the Bergeon 5700RO and will fit in the Bergeon Bit Adpater for 5700-Z Case Opener our number FB-231. Replacement chucks and replacement handle are available in case you have a set that is missing a piece. As is the case with any fine mechanical instrument, special tools are required in order to properly service and adjust a precision instrument such as a fine timepiece. If you are not experienced, it is better to leave this to a Certified Rolex tech. If you do feel you want to proceed, this tool will set you back about $140.00 or so. Just as the internal parts of the Rolex are exact, so is the watch case that protect the valuable watch movement. These tools are used to open the Rolex case without causing expensive damage. You can call Bob Frei at 510-832-0355 ext. 2 from 11 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time Zone, to order one if you wish, or several other sellers of these fine tools can be found by doing a little research on the net. Hope this has helped you.

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.

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.

Rolex, at one time, had a quartz (battery operated) watch. It was only manufactured in solid gold and was distinctive in style from other models. It is no longer being made. For all practical purposes, it you see a battery operated Rolex it is not genuine.

How can i find out if my rolex is a fake? i have a rolex the back of the watch just has rolex NO8668. just asking becouse can't find any place to repair it in my little town where i live.

Hi, please ignore the above for it has no relation to your question. The Daytona does not have a date window so would not have a magnification window. If your Daytona has anything engraved on the rear of it, its highly likely to be fake, as Rolex did not engrave the rear of their watches. The second hand on your watch should be the small sub dial at the 6 o'clock position, this moves round continuously. The large second hand should also move round the face once the top pusher is pushed, pushing it again will stop it. Pressing the bottom pusher will reset all the needles back to 12, except the 6 o'clock dial, as this is seconds. If you remove the bracelet from the watch, you should have a series of numbers in between the lugs of the watch, where the strap would of been (before you removed it) At the top, (12 o'clock position) it will have the model reference number. For instance ROLEX DESIGN 116509 On the other side, at 6 o'clock, it will have a serial number, for instance F520773. The F number is what dates the watch.. F is 2005. If you wish to email me the numbers on your Rolex, I will check it for you, free of charge. Email is If you have opened the watch, you should also have the watches model reference i.e 116509 stamped into the case back. I can arrange repair for this watch, whatever movement it has inside.

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 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...

My men's presidential date just is very difficult to wind. I try to wear it often, but it quits. The winding mechanism is so stiff that I can only partially wind it. It does move easily in the oposite...

If it has only recently gone stiff then it sound like a trip to the dealer for repair.

It may sound daft but all the Rolex I have examined are self winders. Is yours? (you can often hear the self winding mechanism by placing the watch close to your ear and rocking it gently).

Could it be that you need to pull out the crown to wind it?

1) un-screw the pin by turning it towards you, until the spring pops it out. 2) pull the pin out to the next notch 3) turn the pin towards you and watch the date change (if the minute hand is moving when you turn the pin, you pulled out too far).
