Re: 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.
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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
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.
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
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'
Sometimes Rolex bracelet clasps are very tight and this only shows the quality of the watch.
Don't be afraid to pull the clasp hard enough to open it- nothing will brake as Rolex is designed for quite hard use.
If you can't do it by hand, try to use flat butter knife end as a lever.
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.
