ROLEX watches can be opened using special case back press and dies. Without those tools there is no way to open ROLEX watch.

The standard answer is "very carefully" Yes you better only use a special tool to remove the case back. But my question is "why would you want to?" There is no battery in their to replace. It's far more easier to damage this fine watch than anything you can do. You don't want to try and adjust it to make it run faster or slower without having the special timing equipment. You don't want to try and clean it, so why mess around with a fine watch?. Just trying to help you here. Best of luck

Bergeon makes very fine case back openers for Rolex. So is Horotech. But don't try to purchase Chinese-made ones they are just a waste of money. And don''t buy hand-held tools - they won't help, just scratch the watch. Additionally you can rip-off the threads on the back case, and then no one will be able to pen it.
Just let a professional to handle your Rolex.

SOURCE: Unable to Open Rolex Band [knockoff]

Hello

I bought one while on a buisness trip to China. I like the watch alot but the band was too big. I have a friend who's a jeweler. He fixed the band for free. It does take a special tool (which he had).

SOURCE: I had my Rolex watch serviced 2 years ago By Rolex and now

Either the stem or latch needs to be replaced. It's a common problem for ALL manual wind watches.

Water


You would have to unscrew the back (needs a special tool) and leave it open to dry..then probably have it cleaned. Only a professional watch mender can do this.
BUT Rolex watches are water resistant. It either isnt as Rolex, or you went too deep

Can;t open back of watchto find date it was made do i need special tool or some thing else can be used


You definitely need special Rolex case back opener. Without it your watch will be locked forever. Rolex cases are so tight, that even when special opener is used, you will need quite strong arms to open it. Rolex case openers sometimes sells on ebay, but they are never cheap.

Cannot open clasp prestige replica rolex


1)Unscrew the crown until it pops out, the same way you would unscrew the crown to change the time on the watch.
2)Place the watch case opener in the notches around the outside of the back of the watch case. You have to use a watch case opener made for Rolex watches to open the watch. Once the case opener is in place, twist it and the back will pop open.
3)Use a mini screwdriver to loosen a tiny screw on the inside of the watch located near the stem. You do not need to unscrew fully--only loosen it.
4)Pull the crown straight out. The crown and stem should come out easily.
To open the back of the watch
1)Purchase a Rolex watch back opener set, if you do not already have one. This set is able to open and close any size of Rolex case.
2)Match the size of your Rolex case with the same size of grooved metal die from the tool set.
3)Put the metal die on the grooves on the back of the watch case.
4)Turn the die to remove the case.
5)Remove the rubber gasket.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Cant open my rolex daytona watch


To open a Rolex watch you need a special Rolex tool to unscrew the case back. They are really on tight and the wrong tool can cause damage. Why mess up a good watch? Once you get in there, what do you hope to do? Change a battery? Nope they don't have one. So please take that fine watch to someone that really knows what to do'

I can not open the back cover of my Rolex Submariner, I hear something rattling inside.


If the watch is working okay, and it is a self-winding model (i.e. it doesnt not have a battery which relatively few Rolexs do) then the noise you probably can hear is the self-winding mechanism.
Rolex backs are very, very difficult to remove and watch repairers have special tools to do so. As a Rolex is an offically certified chronometer, and therefore has an incrediby accurate and complex mechanism, the backs are deliberatly designed to be difficult to remove by just anybody.

Rolex watch


Hi tia

If it is a geniune Rolex... dont even think about it!! Take it to a jewellers for repair. Even if it is not, and you wish the watch to remain water resistant, then the casings and seals should be cleaned and serviced, even sometimes replaced when put back together. It is worth it to maintain the integrity of the watch... and make it last:) Jewellers dont charge much for this service

Opening woman's rolex


You need to go to a place that sells watch and jewelry supplies, because there is a certain tool for opening a Rolex. I am interested in knowing why you need to open it up though. If this is a Authentic Rolex ALL womans Rolex watches are automatics. Try unscrewing the crown (the part used to set the time ) counter clockwise and then clockwise turn the crown and listen to hear it winding, if it is infact an automatic, wind it 50 times. After winding, push crown in ( it is spring loaded) and screw in clockwise. It should run. If wearing every day you will not have to wind again, if wearing less frequently rewind as specified.

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.
