If I understand right, by the latch you mean bracelet clasp. You just pull it by the crown. Clasps on ROLEX watches can be very tight, so, have to pull it with appropriate force. Rate me, plz.

SOURCE: My rolex datejust watch has

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.

HOW DO I EXPAND THE WRISTBAND ON A DATEJUST PERPETUAL ROLEX


It depends on the model and if it relates to 1960's in its clasp there are some holes to expand the wrist band but you can expand it more by adding reserve piece that you can buy (if you don't have it) from watch makers or authorized retailers. Please be careful because they have tiny screws and are very expensive especially those which are belongs to two tone watches.

Does anyone have a manual for a datejust rolex


No, there isn;t any downloadable manuals for Rolex watches, but operation of Rolex Datejust 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 date setting position,
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 datejust


What you have is an older model Datejust -- or at least an older model movement. During the 1950s, many Rolex Datejust models had an alternating red/black date wheel. Tudor (Rolex's second brand) also had movements with the same red/black date wheel.
BTW, those watches are becoming more and more collectible. Sounds like you may have a nice classic on your wrist! :-)

I hope this helps!
